Brian likes to design from the ground-up and has always enjoyed the collaborative process that happens with new construction, remodeling, and landscape design. Over the years he has enjoyed the opportunity to work with outstanding clients who have shared his passion for design. In addition to project management, he will assist his clients in identifying their signature style, share their vision and guide them in making lasting choices. He likes to emphasize “purchase quality, go slowly, and do it right the first time.” This approach has afforded him to create beautiful and unique homes that match the lifestyles of his clients. Brian has said many times “I relish every time I have the opportunity to merge these three elements together—Design, Architecture, and Landscape.”
Brian is the owner and Principal of Ellingson Interiors LLC which he formed in 2005. He is an Honor graduate of Minnesota State University @ Mankato with over 40 years’ experience, 24 of which included The Design Studio of Gabberts. In 2006 Brian was appointed by then Governor Pawlenty to serve on the “Governor’s Residence Council” for a four year term. His projects have been published Nationally as well as locally, including his own home as the cover story in “Traditional Home” magazine.
