About Brooke Boothe
With gifted seamstresses for both her mother and grandmother, the apple didn’t fall far from the tree for Brooke. Spending summers on Nantucket during the height of the preppy revolution inspired Brooke to follow a career in design. After earning her undergraduate degree from the University of Mississippi, she knew she had a passion that needed to be explored which in turn led to further education at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.
With a few years of retail management under her belt, Brooke moved to Austin, Texas. There she opened her first interior design business in 1994. She focused initially on her seamstress skills, making slip covers, draperies and bedding, and it was not long before design expertise was recognized and in high demand by many premier Austin area home owners. Despite this raging success, the South couldn’t get a strong enough grip on this New Englander, and Nantucket beckoned her back. In 2004 Brooke made the move back East to resume her life-long schedule of summering on Nantucket, and it was there that her design career flourished.
Inspired by her own mother’s successful monogramming business (going strong for over 23 years), Brooke followed suit and in 2006 began offering her own monogramming services. She successfully maintained her following with an extensive East Coast Trunk Show Tour for over three years, but she eventually desired a permanent location. In 2009 Brooke opened her first retail location at 2 Union Street. Four successful seasons later, Brooke moved Nantucket Monogram to a larger space on Easy Street. From the moment one sets foot inside, it is clear that Brooke can lead you in more directions than imaginable with endless suggestions of color and detail.
