Meet Ryan Brown

Meet Ryan Brown, host of TLC's Spouse vs. House.

Ryan Brown is the founder of Brown Design, a residential and commercial interior design firm based in California with offices in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. With more than 15 years of design experience, Brown has a deep understanding and appreciation for transforming architectural spaces into stunning reflections of his clients' tastes and lifestyles. Brown captures twenty-first century California living in a way that rejuvenates, inspires and encompasses the essence of living well. His passion for creating custom blends of natural contemporary, organic and warm spaces is paralleled by the efficiency and creativity found in every Brown Design project.

He is revered along the Golden Coast for using a mixture of modern and rustic design styles accentuated by simple and clean lines. Brown's philosophy is that a great interior should never look designed. Rather, it should have layers of seemingly effortless character ... a casual, but thoughtful, arrangement of furniture, accessories, art and lighting that has been collected over time and truly expresses an individual's life and style. Brown Design has a client roster as diverse as each finished product. With clients ranging from high profile celebrities to first-time home buyers, Brown's designs are the result of his commitment to get to know clients and infuse their character, personality and story into a beautiful place they can call home.

Brown grew up following his father to construction sites and got an early dose of experience watching him build custom homes. This practical education taught him the importance of the business side of building and design. A student of people and places around the world, Brown frequently travels to Europe and South America for inspiration and has also spent time living in both Spain and Argentina. After graduating from the University of California, San Diego, he sparked his creativity and love of travel by moving to Spain where he worked as a fashion photographer. In his spare time Ryan traveled throughout Europe photographing architectural elements -- refining his eye for the craft of design. Inspired and craving something new, yet familiar, Brown returned to Los Angeles to embark on a career in interior design. In addition to running Brown Design, he also engages in full-scale residential development as well as the restoration and refurbishing of homes.

He and his partner of more than 10 years, Dale, reside in Montecito, CA with their 5 year old daughter, Chloe.
