Brigitte won NKBA Midwest’s Design Vision first place medium kitchen award. Japanese Eclectic is the overriding theme in the winning design, which is inspired by the tranquility and beauty of the homeowner's Japanese gardens.
About her creative influences, Brigitte says, “From the time I was very young, I’ve always been drawn to art and architecture. As I developed this interest, I saw the perfect opportunity to combine the two in the field of cabinetry design. Form and function, theme and variation, are my starting points for every home. Combining exterior aesthetics with interior elements and client tastes creates a unique space each and every time.”
