About Terri Brien Interiors


Influenced by the California lifestyle, Terri Brien Interiors focuses on creating comforting and curated spaces through the blending of new, timeless vintage and hand-crafted elements lending to the feeling that your home was designed and tailored specially for you. We know that home is your escape from the day to day and it is our mission to make sure it is a place that feels warm, soothing and speaks to your soul.


We are a full-service boutique interior design firm based in Southern California. We offer services ranging from virtual design, furniture and styling, light commercial to remodels and full service ground up packages. Our overall aesthetic can best be described as Pacific modern organic, blending contemporary elements with found objects and artisanal pieces. Through infusing our designs with one-of-a-kind locally handcrafted pieces, and layering in texture, we create spaces that combine warmth and elevated comfort. From ideation to completion, all services are delivered with the utmost attention to detail.


We believe details are the difference between ordinary and extraordinary and we labor over every tiny detail to breathe as much character and life into the spaces we design.


There are so many decisions to be made and numerous details that can make all the difference in the way you live, and we are here to alleviate that decision making process. Through our project management system, we remove the uncertainty and stress of selecting, procuring and managing all phases of the design process. By gaining insight into how you and your family live in your home we seek to incorporate elements that are not only beautiful but will enhance and elevate your daily lives.

About Terri

As Founder of Terri Brien Interiors, Terri has expertise in her 19 years of high-end residential design and is undyingly passionate about building beautiful spaces. Although she has gained a wealth of knowledge throughout her career as a Designer, her love for design started at an early age. Terri knew she was destined for a lifelong career in design when, at the young age  of 11, she found herself obsessing over having her bedding, curtains and wall paint coordinating.


While studying design Terri began her career in the design studio of a highly distinguished residential builder in Southern California. From Design Assistant to leading a team of designers throughout Southern California, Terri, and her then design partner, received the 2014 Building Industry of Southern California award as Design Team of the year.


Terri, her husband Will and French Bulldog Mugsy, reside in South Orange County. She draws inspiration from the Southern California infusing it with her passion for unique, one-of-a-kind type finds. Terri believes that bringing in elements of timeless, vintage pieces is essential for creating depth and character to a space worth living. Albeit Modern or otherwise, leave it to these special pieces that Terri seeks out to achieve a well-traveled and beautifully curated space.


In her spare time, Terri can be found trying out new recipes, new restaurants or hitting an antique fair. One of her, Will and Mugsy's favorite things to do is hit the beach trail in San Clemente.
