Brende Home- The Company
Brende Home is a full service interior design firm dedicated to creating inspiring interiors that exceed client expectations. Since its inauguration in 2009, BH has been responsible for over 30 remodel projects, including ground up builds, kitchen and bath design, furnishing and styling. We combine our passion for authentic craftsmanship, innovative materials and modern technology to offer beautiful spaces tailored to each client’s vision.
Founder, Jessica Brende has been decorating since she remembers, starting with revamping her dollhouse on a whim and working with her mother, interior designer Susan Taylor. Jessica can recall the smell of fabrics from her mother’s workroom and believes this introduction ignited her love of interior design. After graduating from University of Southern California, Jessica decided to turn her childhood passion into a career and attend the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising. Upon graduation, she landed a design position with Bonesteel Trout Hall, a high end residential design firm based in Pacific Palisades, CA. After five years of working and the birth of her first son, Jessica created Brende Home in 2009. Jessica’s fresh and uplifting approach to design continues to inspire her clients. Whether it is a full remodel project, designing a dream master bedroom or simply pulling together an otherwise dull space, Brende Home is determined to continually challenge the status quo of design.
