{DESIGNER PROFILE} BRITTANY’S SIMPLE KITCHEN TRANSFORMATION

We’ve spent a lot of time showcasing projects Amy has been working on.  We decided it's time you meet some of our other designers and feature their amazing projects too.  We LOVE our designers at Interior Impressions!   We wouldn’t be here without this amazing team! Today we are featuring Brittany Meidinger and her tips for creating a simple yet amazing kitchen transformation. Brittany, where did you grow up? I grew up in Moose Lake, MN.  It’s a small town near Duluth. Are you married or single?  Children? I am not married and do not have kiddos. What inspired you to pursue a career as an Interior Designer? It was always my dream growing up to do Interior Design. I loved going to model homes as a kid. I was always curious to see what my friend's houses looked like (and then would re-arrange their living rooms or decor). When I was probably 11 or 12 I watched the TV series "Trading Spaces" and realized that design/decorating was an actual career! I decided to pursue my dream job and have been working with Interior Impressions ever since. I've been with Interior Impressions for 5 years!  I am very grateful for the opportunities Amy has given me...and to be working with such an awesome team! :)  What is your favorite design style?  This is a tough one, but my personal design style is probably along the lines of what the Kardashian's homes look like - a bit dramatic, black and white, antique mirrors, fun wallpapers, but I also love antiques and bold pops of color. The great part about being an Interior Designer is that I get to work with everyone's style and taste. I love doing shabby chic cottage looks, rustic/vintage/glam design, modern farmhouse, or [...]

{PROJECT REVEAL} BUILDER “NICE” TO FAMILY “FABULOUS”

This remodeling project is one of my favorites of all of the home transformations I've completed so far! It's not just because the transformation was so dramatic or because I had the opportunity to redesign almost every room in the entire house (every designers dream).  This was a favorite because this family has been so much fun to work with on top of everything else! Michelle and Joe came to me looking to update a model home that was just 5 years old.  It was a lovely home, but didn't have the finishes or the fresh, modern look that exemplified their styles.  I was a little intimidated at first because Michelle is a high-powered executive project manager and she likes to get things done fast and efficiently!  My first project with them was a whirlwind deck makeover which was a surprise Father's Day gift for her husband. She asked me if I could pull off having a pergola built, purchase all new furniture for the deck and have it all completed and in place while they were on vacation for a week.  She wanted to surprise him when they arrived back home!  We started planning only a few weeks before they left for vacation.  I was thinking "Please Lord...help me pull this off or I don't think she'll want me to do the inside of the house!"  It was quite an adventure.  I felt like I was trying to pull off an HGTV makeover without any crew-members to help!  In the end it all came together beautifully.  It was one of the biggest adrenaline rushes I've had in this business.  At the end of this whirlwind deck transformation, the most important detail was that I [...]
