Hello! We are Ember & Brune, a Design-Build firm. We take the time to understand your lifestyle, daily routines and family’s needs before putting our own spin on the design. We go beyond design, managing your project from start to finish. As your sole contact for architectural drawings, coordinating construction with our approved contractors, furnishing the finished space and everything in between, you’ll look to us every step of the way. It’s a streamlined process that eliminates communication issues and emphasizes a cohesive team all working for you!
Our studio space located in Downtown Glen Ellyn.
Founder & interior Designer
Brandie formed Ember & Brune to create her own set of rules in the design-build industry. Heavily influenced by nature, as well as architect and designer Frank Lloyd Wright, Brandie’s style of design honors the classic combo of form and function. Through her past experience as lead designer for high-end custom home builders, Brandie cultivates an easy rapport with clients, organized management style and uncanny ability to design a space that caters to each individual client. These qualities shine through on each and every E&B project. Brandie continues to find inspiration while traveling with her family- they are on a quest to see more of our country’s national parks.
