                  In May 2014, Brandi Hagen was invited to the prestigious Cambria Stylemakers Conference.

                  “Cambria Stylemakers are design professionals chosen for their superior design expertise,” said Pat Kanz, Cambria’s Director of Brand Management. “Our Stylemakers are provided with the opportunity to exchange ideas with their peers and present the latest products and forecasts from their markets.”

                  Simply Sophisticated: “The crisp, contemporary look makes a bold contrast to the walnut veneer, as does a sleek, minimalist stainless steel island.”

                  Testimonials

                  “I simply loved her work. I’d worked with designers before, but I felt a good connection with Brandi—she’s high energy, enthusiastic and has great ideas. I’m pretty busy, and Brandi was able to fit my schedule, she gave me choices that fit my personality, and made it all happen without any snags. She got it right, and I had a wonderful experience.”

                  — Mary C.

                   

                  “I didn’t want anything trendy. We were stepping up into a luxury condo, and I didn’t want to make any mistakes. We chose Brandi and her team because she put the work into understanding how we lived and finding what we wanted. She did a great job for us. I can’t believe I live here—Brandi got it right, over and over again.”

                  — Susan G.

                   

                  “We had a big remodeling project that I tried to take on by myself, but it became confusing. I brought Brandi in to help and we immediately hit it off. It felt like she could see right into my head—she knew just what I wanted and needed. I expressed who we were, and she listened. We were a perfect design partnership. She worked within our budget, and her team made the project easy, fast and fun.”

                  — Deanne P.

                   

                  “The prospect of remodeling our whole home was overwhelming. I felt with Brandi I could express who we were, and we could understand each other. She would want to tell a story in a room, and I would volunteer an African theme which we love, and she would pull it all together beautifully.”

                  — Pamela S.
