Janet Brooks

Janet BrooksAs a premiere, luxury home interior designer in Arizona,  Janet has received many prestigious awards for her interior designs. Janet was born and raised in Illinois, and subsequently moved to the mountains of Colorado.  She opened a design studio in Durango CO in the mid-80’s,  providing exclusive design services for the Purgatory/Durango Mountain Resort’s $250M base area expansion, including complete, ground-up design services for 135 slopeside condominiums, retail spaces, restaurants, offices and public areas.

Janet has always been a passionate and competitive person, whether in education, sports or in her career.  She constantly strives for perfection, no matter what the endeavor.  Interior design is a rewarding career for her, because it satisfies her need to create and her love of beauty and balance, while at the same time providing daily challenges.  Janet maintains that it is not only talent, but also  hard work and discipline that make the difference between a good designer and a great designer.

When not immersed in the world of design, this Arizona based Interior Designer is into outdoor sports such as snow skiing and hiking, and loves traveling to study historic architecture, both in the U.S. and abroad.

I have been with the team at Janet Brooks Design for over 15 years. During this time, I have worked with a variety of architectural styles and budgets. Though much of my focus is on furnishing and accessorizing the custom homes our team has designed, I also enjoy taking on remodeling and furnishing projects both large and small. Whether it is an updated kitchen or master suite, new fireplace design, or an overall make-over for a home that needs revitalizing; I enjoy the process of coming up with new ideas and placing the finishing touches with accents and furniture design.
I like to begin my process of better understanding my client by seeing their space, discussing how they live and understanding the kind of atmosphere they wish to create. I can then incorporate their needs into the master design plan while also challenging them to welcome new ideas during the design phase! I enjoy the process of creating intimate and unique spaces that are tailored specifically to each of our clients’ individual needs.

Through the years I have developed relationships with sought-after, leading-edge manufacturers with brands that produce high quality products. I often incorporate popular brands that produce stylish products for a one of kind finishing touch. By attending interior design markets all over the country, I see the furniture in person and have familiarized myself with the various manufacturers’ quality, style, budget range and production time. We also regularly have representatives present their new products here in our studio so that we can keep up with the latest and greatest design styles! This is one of the biggest benefits of hiring our team at Janet Brooks Design. We work together to provide you with the most unique, most inspirational interior design possible using our access to hundreds of furnishing, wallcovering, flooring, accessory, art and fabric sources. We are not limited to a few brands and selections as retail furniture stores might be. Additionally, we are partnered with several custom furniture manufacturers and when we cannot find the perfect piece, we can certainly create and build it just for you!

Upon meeting with you in your home, I will use floorplans or measures taken on site to come up with a layout that best suits your needs. I will then create a power point presentation of furniture and design ideas with your thoughts, desires, color palette and of course budget in mind. I then examine and evaluate my sources and come up with a plan just for you. Whether you need to furnish your new home, remodel one or more rooms in your existing home, or create a new unique space; I am grateful for the opportunity to share my design experience with you!
