Founded in 2017 by Jennifer Linley and Holly Brinkman, Peace & Pine Designs offers interior design services in Columbus, OH and the surrounding area. With a shared belief that beautiful design can also be affordable, from the beginning, Jen and Holly have specialized in creating approachable spaces that prioritize livability. From large-scale renovations to personalized consultations, the Peace & Pine team is known for transforming the look, feel, and function of interior spaces of all sizes. Read on to get to know the ladies responsible for bringing design dreams to life!
MEET JEN // Founder + Designer
Jen knew she was in for a major overhaul when she and her husband purchased a foreclosure. The big surprise? After sharing the process on social media, her career underwent an even bigger transformation than the house. Since swapping scrubs for fabric samples six years ago, this former nurse has grown Peace & Pine from a one-woman show into a team of 11 incredible designers who prioritize client experience above all else. A serial hostess with a penchant for pool parties and spicy margs, this momma of three boys is a fast friend maker and welcoming to all—except those who beat her in ping pong or any yard game.
MEET HOLLY // Founder + Designer
For Holly, what began as a personal journey remodeling and decorating her own home turned into an interior design partnership with Jen that’s six years strong and counting. A former wedding planner, it’s no surprise that Holly’s ability to create detailed timelines, oversee a million moving pieces, and create memorable moments and spaces for her clients remains unmatched. This Michigan-born wife and momma of three is forever a lake girl at heart. From install day to leg day at the gym, she does her best work with country or rap music playing in the background and will happily raise a glass of Pinot to a job well done.
MEET JULIE // Designer
Julie’s love of interior design is a natural extension of the fact that she’s been surrounded by real estate for most of her life. Friendly and down to earth, her light and bright style mixes casual sensibilities with timeless elegance. Plus, as an unashamed bargain hunter, she excels at helping clients obtain the best value for the items used in their design. A perfect day for this wife and momma of 2 includes time with her family and fluffy white fur baby, a good laugh, healthy food, being active, and ice cream for good measure. In her downtime, she can be found daydreaming about sitting on a white sand beach with turquoise water or kicking up her heels as a Radio City Rockette (if only she was tall enough).
MEET AMY // Designer
Somehow, this Cleveland native fell in love with interior design amid the chaos of gutted bathrooms and displaced kitchen essentials while remodeling her own home and lake house. She’s been collaborating with trusted contractors to provide a seamless design experience for others ever since! Cozy, layered spaces with clean lines are Amy’s signature, and she welcomes the opportunity to suggest new and exciting ideas that will take a client’s vision to the next level. Married to her college sweetheart, she’s the mom of 2 beautiful girls and a handsome little man. Her down-time jam: choreographed line dances, binging Bravo, and occasionally taking over her daughter’s TikTok—all of which may or may not involve a Cosmo in hand.
MEET BRANDI // Designer
What do a former sports car driver, experienced real estate pro, and nurse trainee have in common? Brandi, who found her truest calling creating layered interior spaces that strike the perfect balance between what’s trending and timeless. She kicks off each project by doing a deep dive into what “home” really means for her clients, and doesn’t shy away from a bold and moody moment in design. Equally likely to be found dancing in her car to Eminem or Rascal Flatts, she’s blessed to live in a frat house with her fourth grade crush and their 3 boys (2 of whom are identical twins—feel free to send coffee, a margarita on the rocks, or both).
MEET TYLER // Designer
This experienced Graphic Designer and former Senior Art Director traded pixels for patterns after transforming a Michigan cottage into her family’s summer dream home. A certified Interior Designer and member of the Designer Society of America, she's known for delivering a clean and contemporary aesthetic. When Tyler isn’t pouring her design expertise into a creative vision board, you can find her hanging with her husband and three girls, hitting the streets for a run, or surfing the wake at the lake. Fiercely loyal and unapologetically competitive, the fastest way to this girl’s heart is to challenge her to a game of tennis or invite her to a hot yoga class.
MEET LAURA // Designer
Looking to infuse your interiors with a unique perspective? Laura’s previous experience in event planning, bridal consulting, and styling bring fashion-forward flair to every space she designs. She loves all things classic and timeless, but is always willing to sprinkle in something unexpected for a fresh twist. When she isn’t chasing her "mini-me" and 2 wild boys around, you'll find her working out, hosting an OSU watch party, or tuning into anything Andy Cohen produces with a flavored martini in hand.
MEET ABBY // Designer
A studied design professional, local abstract artist, and certified yoga instructor—Abby’s eclectic background is a perfect match for her personal style, which combines the sophistication of a Parisian flat with the charm of an English cottage. For this all-around creative, a career as an interior designer was the natural result of seeking to understand the big picture of the spaces where her artwork is displayed. She excels at pulling together various colors, textures, and collected items into curated spaces that exude character and individuality. In her off hours, find this fun-loving wife and dog momma slinging paint, recentering on her yoga mat, or sipping a dirty martini (extra olives, please!).
MEET HEATHER // Designer
Lovers of beautifully composed spaces, you have an ally in Heather, whose earliest design experiences include conceptualizing and creating furniture with her master craftsman grandpa and reimagining her living spaces. Her favorite resume addition of the recent past? Parlaying 17 years of graphic and web design experience into a career as an interior designer. From modern farmhouse to coastal, Heather’s diverse style can easily flex to fit her client’s tastes without overstepping their budget. She’s a lover of Tennessee whiskey, the Smoky Mountains, and the crew of 4 grown and (almost) flown children + 3 Holland Lop bunnies she shares with her other half.
MEET KAITY // Designer
Born and raised in Columbus, after purchasing her first home with her husband, Kaity began designing as a side hustle while working in corporate marketing and creative communications. Approachable and collaborative, she’s known for blending transitional style with vintage pieces to achieve timeless interiors that feel lived in and loved. She enjoys cooking, thinks a recipe is only a recommendation, and rarely misses a Friday night installment of Dateline. Married to her college sweetheart, this momma of two boys is most likely to skip drinks and head straight for the dessert menu—especially if a vacation to Kauai and a slice of Hula Pie are in the mix.
MEET AMY L. // Designer
A professional polisher of diamonds in the rough, seeing the hidden potential in a dilapidated post-grad apartment was the spark that fanned Amy’s interest in interiors into the full-blown flame of a career change. Safe to say it won’t burn out anytime soon, since she’s spent more than a decade in the interior design space and still enjoys organizing and DIY-ing her own home in the (minimal) downtime allotted by her 2 busy kiddos. Looking for a designer who could double as your new best friend—at least on IG? Amy’s outgoing personality, insanely amazing listening skills, and genuine investment in her clients’ happiness should send her straight to the top of your shortlist.
Our clients value a composed space, that’s authentic to them, they can enjoy for years to come. They trust our expertise, our eye, and most importantly, us. We listen closely and work hard to see your dream, so we can bring your vision to life.
Design doesn't have to be complicated or overstated to be beautiful, but it's attention to detail that adds character and purpose. Our goal is to understand what is important to our clients, so we can design a space reflective of you.
The details are decided, and everything is perfectly placed. When clients tell us we've created a space that feels like a retreat, a space that feels like them, we know we've done our job well. We love that reveal moment every.single.time.
