    Brass is back? Design trends with HGTV Design Star Jennifer Bertrand

    in Design

    Friends are confused when we talk about the trends of designers loving of brass and animal print. We're talking with design expert Jennifer Bertrand about how to do the trend right, so our spaces don't end up looking like an episode of 'Dallas' from the 80s. 


    Our guest Jennifer also has appeared on 'Paint-Over' that showcased her speciality of decorative painting, and 'HGTV Showdown,' which was an intense duel where HGTV designers battled in head-to-head competitions.


    Raised in a military family, Jennifer spent her childhood moving to different Air Force bases around the world. She says her passion for design began when she saw her mother "magically" transform their modest surroundings into an elegant environment each time they moved. The years she spent living abroad further shaped her love of design, offering her inspiration throughout Europe, from decorative grand palaces to rustic outdoor antique markets. After teaching art in elementary schools in Italy and Kansas, Jennifer, along with her English husband, Chris, now own a design business in Olathe, Kansas.
