"Many interior designers want to put their own mark on the home. Not Joan. She
listened to our interests, concerns and dreams, helped us get in touch with our
own sense of style. The happy result of her collaborative style is a beautiful
space that reflects our family and the way we live. Friends and family comment
that our home is simultaneously elegant and comfortable. Joan's extraordinary
creativity, attentiveness, expert design sense and gracious personality make
for a wonderful, rewarding experience from start to finish."

"Over the years, Joan has helped us create functional, beautiful and colorful
spaces in our homes in Minnesota as well as Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Her use of
color and her ability to see the big picture, has kept us focused and on track
during our creative building process. She is able to update and create “new
spaces” with existing furniture and accessories. The professional support she
brings in to help complete tasks and installs is always timely, efficient and
courteous. I recommend Joan for large or small projects.
"Joan was able to create a design that was over 90% complete on the first draft.
The process was seamless and fun - even the contractor commented that they rarely
see a design come to fruition so easily.
As they say, the proof is in the pudding, and now when people walk in our home,
the first thing commented on is typically the "energy" in the home - they say it
"feels" right - as if this design was what the home itself wanted in order to
nurture its occupants and visitors. What more could we ask for? Our new design
is beautiful and functional but the biggest plus that we are so grateful for is
the way people feel when they are there. To that we owe eternal gratitude to Joan Breen."
Linda & Dave Menter
"Joan Breen has been our friend and interior designer for 20 years. Joan has brought
intriguing fabrics, explosive color schemes and dynamic furnishings into our home.
Joan's creative mind for design and the attention to detail along with fabulous
accessorizing has made our two homes in Shorewood Minnesota and La Quinta California

know your taste and lifestyle, then makes suggestions that are amazing!! Every time
I walk into my office and my home, I smile. My spaces are now memorable, delightful,
and a treat for my eyes and my soul!! Thanks Joan."
