From a very young age, Brinklie has had an insatiable curiosity when it comes to design. After studying criminology at UCI, she instead decided to pursue her dreams of becoming an interior designer. Brinklie currently attends Interior Designers Institute in Newport Beach where she is working on earning degrees in Interior Design. Brinklie believes that design should be a combination of both beauty and functionality. Her favorite quote is from William Morris and goes, “Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.” She resides in Irvine and loves to spend time with family, friends & her dogs.
