Heidi Brooks’ synthesis of styles has evolved over the years. Her passion for interior design and antiques was conceived at an early age. The daughter of a published interior designer, she remembers watching her mother reveal the method to her inimitable style that was simply rooms of elegance and distinction. Her mother’s enduring influence instilled the quintessential building blocks of good interior design. Heidi’s grandmother, Calista Sterling inspired her as well and gave her an unquenchable thirst for antiques. Her grandmother was a well known and respected antiquarian in Maine with a client list that included the Rockefellers and Roosevelts among others. Furthermore, Heidi’s great grandfather was an interior designer. It is from this legacy, informed study and observation that she acquired her artistic ability.
Heidi Brooks is a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology and began her career as an interior designer over 15 years ago. She has provided professional design services to both local and national clientele. Heidi has long been known for the integration of architectural and interior design. The hallmarks of her style are understated elegance, clean and clear architectural design, and thoughtful attention to detail. She creates a home that balances individual comfort with a timeless aesthetic. Clients return again and again as their needs evolve and lives change. Though projects range from a high-rise penthouse, to a Victorian cottage in the city, a luxury resort, to an estate thousands of miles away, each is negotiated with the same deft consideration and expertise.
Interior designer Heidi Brooks makes a home look like an effortless welcoming place of quiet perfection. For over twenty years, I have been fortunate to work with many of the nation’s best designers while shooting for magazines like House Beautiful and Elle Decor. In Heidi’s work I see the attention to detail, the sophisticated restraint, the nuances of scale, color and furnishings that make a timeless classic home. Heidi’s professionalism makes her a pleasure to work with.
