Bret Ritter’s Design Portfolio From HGTV Design Star season six 2011

Bret Ritter from “Design Star 2011” is one of the contestants in Season 6 of the interior design reality competition series on HGTV. He loves to create mid-century spaces that include eco-conscious building materials. He is a 30-year-old construction project manager from Brooklyn, New York.

Growing up in a military family, Bret Ritter (“Design Star 6”) spent his childhood moving to different countries around the world, including India, Germany, Panama and Japan. He soon discovered a love for design because with each move he learned how to make every new space his own. Bret, who holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Art Center Design College in Tucson, Arizona, is a project manager for an eco-conscious construction company in New York City. Bret says he loves mid-century design that includes environmentally friendly, energy-efficient building materials. Although he describes himself as nice guy, he has been known “to get very intense when he works.”
