Principal of BDS, Brooke Bowman’s passion for Interior Design came at the early age of 13 when she grew out of her ‘little girl’ bedroom. Don’t worry, Mom and Dad would check-in on her, but Brooke literally took on the task of renovating her room from removing wallpaper, texturing the walls, and implementing a custom Celestial Design <--- totally 1990’s!
Fast-forward a couple of decades, after a BFA in Corporate Communications and a successful career in finance, she decided that her creative personality was not being fulfilled looking at numbers all day. She took the risk to follow her passion and went back to school to get a formal education with a BA in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Houston. It paid off as she then went to work for some of Houston’s most sought-after, award winning firms before starting BDS.
As a natural problem solver, and sometimes called “BrookeGyver”, Brooke finds creative solutions for any road blocks that might arise.
When I tasked Brooke with helping me redo my floors, I had no idea the exceptional service that I would get. With the budget I gave her for the floors, we were actually able to make several other updates to my home. It was such a relief for me not to have to worry about scheduling contractors and tracking down material; like a silent ninja she just got it all done!
From the beginning she caught my vision for my space, and even though I thought I knew what I wanted, she patiently guided me in the right direction. She has put together a master piece that is totally my style and feels like home, all along letting me make decisions with her expert guidance. People often try to cut professional services out of the middle, thinking they can do it themselves. I was one of those people, but after working with Brooke I will never make that mistake again!
It's done! By golly it's done and it's gorgeous and comfortable. ❤️❤️❤️❤️😍😍😍 love love! Thx again!
Brooke is a designer that I have found to be very professional. While I didn't have a design direction she created one for me that I still love 10+ years later. She has excellent taste and selected colors and items that I would never have imagined, but love. Through the years I have come to her with several projects and she was able to help me along the way. I am now getting ready to build a new house for myself and am excited to start the process so we can work together again!
I've been admiring the work of BDS for some time and have finally been able to hire them! Brooke is such a joy to work with sourcing all the hard to find items that fit within my budget and the final design is simply perfect!!
Brooke was absolutely fabulous to work with. Her hard work, dedication to our project, and her attention to every detail provided us with a stunning visitors center when she was done. She was ALWAYS professional, which was a quality we really looked for when researching designers. Not only did she finish ahead of schedule, she also managed to complete our entire renovation, from planning, concepts to reality, in under 6 months!

Brooke Baby! You rock. We love the attention to detail you put into every aspect of our home by pulling together elements we would never have looked at twice. I hate how you are so good.
