ABOUT ANN P. BRENNAN INTERIOR DESIGN
"Since I can remember my mind has always been at work creating spaces down to the last details. At first, for my childhood bedroom, and then, for the imaginary clients. Color, wall covering, fabrics, furniture, and lighting all played into my mind's eye. Once my two sons were in high school I pursued turning this innate passion into a career. Each morning I wake up excited to utilize my passion and expertise to tackle design dilemmas and create spaces that will enhance my clients lives." -Ann
Where the name "Ann P. Brennan Interior Design" was derived.
"One of my life's greatest blessings has been becoming a mother. My husband and I's first son arrived early at 26 weeks due to my body struggling with the life threatening condition called Toxemia. He weighed a mere 4 lbs. His name is Preston and he is now 23. (On the left in the photo) Preston had many challenges as a result of being a premie. From health issues to learning, we tackled each one as they were uncovered. I learned quickly how to be an advocate and fight for my son's needs. Today Preston attends college at Sam Houston and is majoring in business. Our second son is Brennan. (On the right) He came into the at 9.4 lbs. and looked 3 months old at the get go! Brennan was gifted with this innate ability to communicate and bring a sense of calm to any situation. Today is he 20 years old and studies Computer Science Engineering at UNT.
I could think of no better way to honor my boys than to name the business after them. The "P" is for Preston and "Brennan", for the youngest." -Ann

I especially like that she is willing to work not only FOR you but WITH you, and because of my limited budget I prefer to be very involved. This is not true of all designers, but you can trust Ann to really listen to her clients and deliver in every way. Ann is also very creative and has expertise in making both interior and exterior color selections, and is patient to ensure her clients are completely satisfied. Ann went above and beyond accommodating my busy schedule and adds the extra touches that count. I would highly recommend Ann P. Brennan Interior Designs!" - Kimberly Gerhardt
"Ann was a delight from the moment she introduced herself to me and my Aunt at her retirement apartment. I had read about Ann and her design business in the Houston Chronicle article written by Diane Cowen. My Aunt liked the article and what the retirement ladies had to say about their lives and downsizing. My Aunt wanted to re-do her the dining room. Only keeping a few of her treasures. We didn't contact Ann right away, it was going to take some getting ready to move to the new place. Ann set up time for initial visit to see what type of things my aunt would like to see in her place. The set up a time to go shopping for furniture and to help see what would work best in the space. Thanks, Ann!" - Janet Willey
"Though Ann is a seasoned, knowledgeable designer, working with her is so pleasant you'll feel like you're spending an afternoon with a good friend. Her assessment and visualization skills are excellent. What ever the challenges, she makes use of space that is magical! One of my favorite things about Ann is her capability of improving a space utilizing existing materials. This helped us hold down costs without sacrificing amazing results. We loved her work and will contract her again in the future." -Melissa Collier
"Ann immediately saw the challenge facing us with an apartment in a newly constructed building - stark white walls and limited space. Ergo, soon a sea-mist hued wallpaper covered the longest wall and she found furniture to enhance the limited living/dining room space to create a warm inviting area. She displayed her great taste in hanging the art work to best advantage. And she didn't forget that the small pieces should be displayed to best advantage. As a result when company walks in they invariably say 'How lovely'."
"Ann is a great design professional who truly listens to the needs of her clients. Ann designed my living, kitchens and baths and did an outstanding job. My living room was featured in a 2017 edition of Houston House and Home. My entire home is a cohesive retreat which reflects my lifestyle and makes me happy when I'm at home. I would highly recommend Ann to anyone seeking design help for projects small and large!"-Abby Baker
"Ann helped me with the backsplash in my kitchen and my fireplace stone. It looks amazing she picked just the right things for my house to make it look updated. She is really good at what she does I would highly recommend her!" - Colleen Dulak
"I can't say enough about the skill and expertise of Ann P. Brennan Interiors. I worked with Ann to design the furnishings for my significantly downsized home. She is amazing in all areas of design: color, scale, flow, sourcing and more. She was very cautious to work within my budget and design a space that feels like home to me." - Kristi Thompson
