Brenda Be, interior designer


Brenda Be, interior designer, green designer, renovation designer, portrait… grew up in the fields of Oklahoma observing and contemplating the literal birds & bees, plus occasional frogs & cows, for countless hours. Years later she turned that laser-beam focus to absorb visual arts, particularly sculpture, installation, and abstract painting. Seeking to master both the fine arts and the functional construction of fine craft, she attended the renowned Program in Artisanry (now at UMass-Dartmouth, formerly at Boston University & Swain School of Design), majoring in Studio Furniture and Sculpture Design & Construction.


Since 2001, she has brought this mindset of deep immersion in a subject, and passion for perfection of craft, together in her work in interior design. Her artful approach results in a unified space which embraces its surroundings, and showcases its owner's personality.

Her work has been recognized for innovative use of materials & techniques, artistic composition & forms, and harmony with nature, in publications such as Boston Globe Magazine, Boston Home Magazine,, and many other outlets. She was in the first (beta) group of LEED Green Associates in the country, and was a member of the host committee for USGBC GreenBuild Boston. Her educative and eco-conscious outlook has led to lecturing and teaching on green design and interior design at many greater Boston “Green” community events, Brookline Community Education, and the Mt. Ida Graduate School of Interior Design.
