We had the good fortune of connecting with Brooke Bundy and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Brooke, what inspires you?
Connection. Our connection to the people we share our lives with, who make our lives happier by being part of them. And our connection to the people who came before us- our family members who we can still learn from and feel ties to even if they are no longer here. And I am inspired by the way that ordinary objects can represent those connections, as well as connect to each other. The kind of home that feels the best to live in is a home that reminds us of the people and experiences we never want to forget. More than anything else, connection is what inspires me when I design.

What should our readers know about your business?
I am the most proud of how we have set up our services, so that our clients can get the amount of help that is just right for them. I also love how personalized our designs are, and that remote clients get a design that is as tailored to them as our local clients. I think sometimes “e-design” gets a reputation for being a service where clients are asked a few questions to try to nail down their style, and then they get sent a mood board showing a generic design that has no real connection to them. Our e-design experience is not like that at all. All clients, whether we work with them remotely or in-person, answer the same questionnaire that helps us to create a design plan that connects to their family, life experiences, and favorite memories, as well as solve problems and make the home function better for them. They also get an appointment with me where we walk the house (either in person or virtually) and I talk through all the design ideas with them. I love seeing the excitement on people’s faces when they start to envision what their home can be, and I wouldn’t be able to experience that with them if we were strictly working through email. So I love that no matter where a client lives, I get to meet with them and share in the excitement. It makes me really happy.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I would plan an itinerary that was pretty much just eating and shopping. We would go to all of my favorite breakfast spots, including Maple Street Biscuit Company and The Biscuit Bar. We would visit Downtown McKinney, and be sure to stop by my favorite shop there, Chase Hall, to chat with the very friendly owners and buy something that made us feel like we had shopped in France. While there we would grab a pie from Emporium Pies and truffles from Goodies Texas. We would visit Downtown Grapevine – even more fun if it was near Christmas time! – and Downtown Frisco and wander around in my favorite consignment shop called Consignment Crush (it’s in a house, so super fun to walk around in!). We would eat at some of my favorite places like Hard Eight, Randys (also a “house” and has the best nostalgic vibe!!), and Babes Chicken. If my visitor was someone who had visited me when I lived in Minneapolis, we would drive around in Highland Park so I could show them that there’s a place in Dallas that looks insanely similar to Minneapolis.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My biggest gratitude is for my family because they are the reason I love home. They make all the moments I want to remember forever.
