Brooke Gilliam On Making Modern With Brooke And Brice
Brooke Gilliam from Making Modern with Brooke and Brice is self-taught. She is taking the role of a builder while her husband Brice contributes to their business as a designer. It was building their own house that gave them the feeling that they could get into the house renovation business.
Brooke spent her time at the site learning from the subcontractors. The subcontractors weren’t used to having girls around so they invited her to learn how to make things. So, she ended up learning the trades of the business. She took a couple of projects from her friends and family.
Word of mouth, they started attracting clients and it became their full-time gig.
As for Magnolia’s show Making Modern, one of her neighbors helped them to meet a TV producer (Sarah Kunin, a former producer for ABC) that was moving to Nashville. The producer offered her a chance to create a show and both Brooke and Brice agreed.
One of the interesting things about their show is they are building a business as the show progresses. But, it has been challenging for them because people reach out to Brooke thinking she is the designer which she calls the “industry norm”. And, with cameras following around it adds to that challenge and it took them a lot of time to get used to that.
For Brooke, the final product coming together (construction and TV show production) is surprising.
Brooke And Brice Gilliam’s Relationship
Brooke and Brice Gilliam have been married since August 2012. They likely met sometime in 2010 at a place called Cadillac Ranch which no longer exists in downtown Nashville, Tennessee. Brice was there with his friends while Brooke was with her friends attending a bachelorette party.
They had mutual friends in their respective groups and Brooke’s friend knew Brice. Brooke told The List, “We knew we were the one for each other pretty quickly, and we were engaged seven months later and then got married right at that two-year mark of knowing each other. So we’ve been together almost 10 years now”.
Brice likes to add twists to the story adding that he was the guy who jumped out of the cake, which Brooke denies because it didn’t happen. On the contrary, Brice thinks the story sound so much better that way. But, Brooke added that they were planning to re-enact that on their 10-year anniversary.

He added, “Having her by my side to ride this crazy wave of life is the most incredible blessing and I wouldn’t trade it for the world. They may call me the “Smile Creator,” but little do they know that she is the reason for my smile each and every day. We are truly “better together.” Cheers to 9 years, baby. We’ve got a lifetime to go”.
