My name is Brooke Bratcher and I am the founder and creative director of Bratcher Home and Design. I have been in the residential design industry since 2011. I started as a design assistant for a local interior designer, Judy Hampton. I learned so much in the three years of working for Hampton Place Interiors. In those years of working as a design assistant, my personal life was growing as well! I got engaged, married, and my husband and I eventually welcomed our son, Beau. I knew the moment I became a mother in 2014, that I wanted to spend as much time as I could at home. So naturally, I resigned from my job, enjoyed the newborn stage, and eventually decided to start designing small projects on the side! This option offered the flexibility I was needing, but also provided the social interaction and creative outlet I was craving. By 2015, Brooke Bratcher Design was officially in business. I found myself shopping around town and ordering from designer lines to complete my new projects. I loved shopping local for client projects with my baby on my hip, he was the best assistant!
Fast forward to 2016 when we welcomed our daughter, Brielle. She completed our little family! Motherhood was amazing and I wouldn't trade it for anything. However, I still felt something was missing in my life. My passion for design seemed to never go away after having children, so I decided it was important for me to continue my career path and build my business! Three years later my career to a major jump in the right direction! The decision to rebrand and open a showroom/design studio was something I had always wanted for myself, it was my ultimate goal. Bratcher Home & Design officially opened in downtown Bakersfield on November 26th, 2019. I am continuing to grow, we made it though the pandemic and most recently added an online shopping option. I could not be where I am today without the love and support of my employees, family, followers, customers and clients. Thank you for helping make my dreams a reality!
