Decorotation is owned and operated by Brett Foken, a Bay Area native and self-taught interior designer and stylist. Brett made the switch from a professional career in marketing to interior design about 3 years ago when she helped design a dilapidated fixer upper home as a fun side project and realized transforming homes and creating beautiful, comfortable interior designs was her true calling. Brett started a small interior design blog to document her fixer upper projects and passion for interiors which has since turned into her small, local interior design business, Decorotation. Since launching Decorotation, Brett has worked on a number of renovation projects throughout the Bay Area from kitchen and bathroom designs to entire gut renovations. 


Having grown up in California and lived in both Oregon and Seattle, Brett has a deep appreciation for West Coast living and her designs reflect an effortless and comfortable way of life while being sophisticated and timeless. Brett finds a lot of inspiration in nature, the beauty of the West Coast and travel which motivate her to incorporate natural fabrics, materials and colors. She believes that sometimes less is more and comfort always comes first, style second.


Brett lives in her own recently renovated fixer upper home in Oakland, CA with her husband Brandon and doggy Major. On the weekends you’ll find her at the local farmer’s market, whipping up something in the kitchen, hiking around the beautiful Bay Area, perusing flea markets and thrift shops and enjoying a few cold one’s at one of Oakland’s many beer gardens :-)
