Meme Brooks, The ‘Non-Diva Decorator’
At Meme Brooks Design, well-being is a central influence in every design decision we make. Our goal is to create a space that will help you feel your best and enjoy your home to the fullest.
Decorating and Design
Often referred to as a “the non-diva-decorator”, Meme Brooks has been sharing her sense of style and infectious enthusiasm for decorating and staging properties across Canada for more than 10 years. Her passion comes from working closely with clients to make sure that their personality and aspirations are embodied in their new space.
The rave reviews of happy clients mean more to Meme than anything else, however she’s also proud to have been featured as a Pro Designer in Western’s Living’s Condo Living magazine on multiple occasions. In addition to decorating homes, condos and much more, she has also worked on big projects such as the BC Children’s Lottery Condo. There is no space too big or too small for Meme to work her magic!
Meme Brooks Design is a collaboration of like minded people, driven by their love of design. Founded by Meme Brooks, her vision was to create a company that exceeds expectations every time.
Meme is able to express the clients’ personality within their space, making it seem impossible that they lived any other way. Her team offers the combined knowledge of hands-on design experience, close relationships with (select) vendors, and a passion for helping people fall in love with their living space.
Most individuals find renovating, redesigning, or moving to be stressful, however Meme provides an easy and stress-free experience. Not only will MBD create the space you’ve always longed for, they’ll also show you how to utilize it (i.e. throwing a fantastic dinner party – just don’t tell your guests where you got that ricotta and parmesan fritter recipe from!)
The Meme Brooks Design Dream is creating a one-stop design shop for all customers:
- Working with contractors
- Colour and design expertise
- Close relationship with vendors
The Meme Brooks Design motto is simple: “treat every client as if they were family.” It’s crucial that every customer feels special and taken care of from beginning to end. For however long the design process is scheduled for, the MBD team will be on your side.
Meme finds inspiration from many aspects of her life. Perfection to Meme is a well-designed room and elements of influence from the 1950s mid-century modern aesthetic. What many of us take for granted, Meme relishes in. For example, furniture made for body mechanics with textures and colours so big and bold, creating an unexpected end result (and comfortable too!).
Her design influencers come from the clean lines found in Frank Lloyd Wrights architecture, bright carefree colors found in Jonathan Adlers’ pottery, the creative diversity found in Martha Stewart’s design concepts, as well as many modern day builders who use environmentally conscious design plans.
More About Meme
While living in London, Ontario, Meme completed Design school at Westervelt Private College with presidential honors. Wanting to try out the West coast, Meme hit the road in her Volkswagen Jetta and drove across the country towards beautiful British Columbia. After getting settled in Vancouver, Meme’s passion for design flourished once she became Benjamin Moore’s exclusive colour & design consultant. It was there that she was recognized for her expertise and helped balance the colour palettes of many homes.
The Benjamin Moore community welcomed her with open arms, (creating the foundation for long lasting, fulfilling relationships) forming the basis of many long lasting trade relationships began to flourish. With the experience under her belt, Meme’s ambition to, one day, start her own company led her to pursue a certificate in Business and Marketing from VCC.
In 2010, Meme Brooks Design was registered, with the vision of being a one-stop shop for decorating and design. The company soon became respected for changing the way people view designers, coining her brand as the ‘Non-Diva Decorator’. She vows to bring new life to older sentimental pieces such as your great-great-great grandmothers sewing table.
