History

Before forming the small-specialized Bron Design Group in 1993, Eric Bron fulfilled his creative instincts as a principal in one of the nation’s largest architectural firms. Eric is certified by the rigorous National Council for Interior Design Qualifications (NCIDQ) and is a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) where he is currently an executive committee member. Eric has received the highest ASID “Medallist” and “Designer of Distinction” awards, has taught as a guest lecturer for senior professional practice classes at the university level, and has contributed articles for business and design publications.

Dorothy’s degree and early career revolved around behavioral studies before she entered architecture and design in 1972, and discovered her forte in color and design. She has been an associate member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) and has served as Western Regional Chairman for the prestigious international Color Marketing Group (CMG). Noting a void in the industry, Dorothy created ways to enhance existing and new construction with color and design.

Many developers, property managers and homeowners depend on her expertise in architectural colors and ability to add “curb appeal” to their projects. Dorothy has won numerous design awards and has authored articles in business and design publications.

Dorothy consulted on exterior colors for Scottsdale’s Terravita project and several other Del Webb and UDC projects, including Tuscany and Club West. Her artistic expression was demonstrated in the development of new color guidelines for over 30 existing developments at Scottsdale Ranch, along with recolor guidelines for the Foothills Club West.

As collaborators, the Brons direct clients making design choices for their homes and businesses. With the intelligent use of space and sumptuous color, the Brons seek to co-create a functional spatial “backdrop” for the lives and possessions of their clients. They breathe fresh life into personal belongings and private collections, often by blending them with new acquisitions. Part of the Brons’ philosophy is, “Quality design has nothing to do with dollars.”

Additionally, they follow the goals and budget in progress and insist on itemizing every detail. As Dorothy says, “Surprises are for birthdays and anniversaries, not a design project.” Sensitivity for the overall environment is also important to these conscientious designers.

Gallagher & Kennedy Law Firm first called on Eric Bron’s design skills in 1978. Several years later, the firm expanded to 45 attorneys and moved to a high-rise. Again, the Brons were retained to design the interior space. That exhilarating project won awards for the Brons and the law firm inspite of tightly budgeted interior-design time and funds.

One warm and beautiful example of the Brons’ commercial achievements is Desert Mountain Cochise and Geronimo Clubhouse in Scottsdale. The result of two years spent designing and selecting the entire stylish interior is breathtaking. Robert Bacon, Studio b, Inc. Principal-in-charge and Architectural Designer for the project, says simply, “When it come to interior finishing of this room or that, the Brons make art of it.”

The architectural team for Red Mountain Community College chose Bron Design Group to design the facility’s interiors for an enduring, fresh and exciting look. Eric says, “We enjoy crafting beautiful, welcoming interiors to compliment our clients’ desired look.”

From major remodeling of existing homes in Paradise Valley, to complete interior design of custom homes in North Scottsdale, the Bron’s residential projects continue to grow and diversify. Function, aesthetics and caring are among the qualities that have earned the Brons their reputation as highly respected leaders in design and color application.
