Q&A with Elisa & Brandon Macomber, Showhomes of Santa Fe


Get to know Elisa & Brandon Macomber...

Where do you find inspiration when starting a new project? 

“Nature! It’s the best source, hands down. Whether it’s color, texture, or element, there is always something awe-inspiring out there. ”

Where did you grow up? Has that had an influence on your design aesthetic? 

“We traveled to many places growing up in our childhoods, having been exposed to different cultures so our design aesthetic draws from that. We embrace the natural, rustic and modern look that many other cultures have.”

Is there a design rule you love to break?

“We are fans of the ‘less is more’ philosophy, but now and then we go beyond that and get surprised at the results!”

If you were reborn as a piece of furniture or decor object, what would it be? and why?

“A farmhouse table in the kitchen! Can you imagine the stories heard, the recipes cooked, and memories made at that table over the years?”

Finish the sentence:     Every room needs _________. 

“a statement piece that will capture people’s eyes.”
