Local interior designer Bria Hammel, known for her bright, classic, effortless aesthetic—and considerable social media following—launched her own line this summer. Brooke & Lou, named for her two children, features products that are “Life Friendly,” a trademarked tagline describing furnishings that are beautiful and stand up to what life dishes out. “You don’t have to worry if your friends spill wine on the white couch or your kids wipe their mac-and-cheese hands on your barstool because the fabric is gorgeous but durable and easily cleanable,” says Hammel.
In addition to the “Life-Friendly” products (labeled with a charming silhouette of a child and a large dog), Brooke & Lou will include chairs, sofas, tables, upholstered furniture, casegoods, rugs, lamps, pillows, and accessories from the design team’s favorite manufacturers. Wallpaper and pillow designs created by Bria Hammel Interiors will be part of the offerings, as will a selection of one-of-a-kind furniture and accessories purchased from around the globe—vintage, antique, and other pieces the team couldn’t resist sharing with Brooke & Lou customers.
Browse these products and much more at Brooke & Lou’s online shop. And remember, all is beautiful and livable. As the site reminds, “No one should have to sacrifice style in the pursuit of a beautiful, real, lived-in life.”
