Meet Ann, Principal Designer

How I began

Although I have been practicing my passion for design all my life, over the past 10+ years I turned it into a business. I started with staging homes for resale before beginning my education at The Art Institute in Houston, Texas. During my time there, I earned my Associates in Interior Design along with my Associates in staging. To continue my knowledge in the design community, I also received a color expert certification with Maria Killam. I am always trying to expand my experience in the design industry so I can be the best designer for each of my clients.

A few of my favorite things  . . . When morning arrives and the sun goes down I find myself enjoying life outside of design by reading (usually books about design :)  )  , working out, attending Bible Study, and enjoying a glass of red wine with family and friends.  

It’s All In the Name

Ann Schamberger is my full name.  As a previous elementary teacher I learned quickly that people have a difficult time spelling AND pronouncing my last name (“Schamberger” rhythms with “hamburger”).   :) When I ventured out into the design world I had to come up with a name for my business that reflected who I am yet was easier for clients to remember and spell.

So . . . Ann P. Brennan Interior Design arrived from combining my first name with the first names of my two sons.

Ann- my name

P.- Preston my older son of 26 (yikes I feel old now)!

Brennan - is the name of my younger son who is 24.

Did you know that raising children is much like design?

Raising children, like design, is a process.  It takes time, dedication, deliberate intention, and passion.  

How do like to spend your leisure hours?

There are only so many hours of the day and only a few of those are left over to spend on something we enjoy doing.  Why waste that precious time to come up with and implement a cohesive, fabulous home design?

How Can APB Benefit You?

  • No more long hours browsing the internet to locate just the right piece of furniture, art piece, rugs, or accessories

APB uses her knowledge of vendors to land on the perfect item that does not look just like your neighbors.

  • Anxiety over selecting hard surfaces will be no more

The "No Do Over" decisions are critical to every project.  Once flooring, backsplash, and countertops are installed there is no turning back.  These items are major cost elements that you want to get right.  APB has experience in selecting hard surfaces that will work cohesively together and not compete for attention.

  • Purchasing furniture and accessories that don't work in you space will be a thing of the past.

Size and scale of each item in your space is important.  APB understands this and is deliberate when selecting chairs, art, accessories, and lighting for each room.

  • No "Painter's Regret"

Why spend time going back and forth to the paint store for samples only to pick a color that you regret.  APB can help you get it right the first time.  Ann was trained under the well known Color Expert in the field of design, Maria Killam.  Ann is able to narrow down, and select, paint for a room that does not compete with the other undertones in the space.
