Those same principals apply on land, where Susan has extensive experience with luxury home interiors. Susan’s goal is to be informed, anticipate and solve any unforeseen problems. Ultimately, saving clients time and money.

Susan, who is an Allied member of ASID, has a bachelor’s degree in textile design allowing her to create beautiful spaces that balance design, humanity and sustainability. “Fabrics are paramount in any design. They define the space.” Susan spends considerable time working and keeping up with the latest in textile technology and design innovations.

Susan believes design isn’t just about aesthetics. “It is a feeling that should be soothing, peaceful and refined. It is an environment that should be livable, approachable and easy, in addition to an aesthetic that should be clean, balanced and scaled.”

Each project is unique. “Design projects should evolve from the personality of the client.” Susan focuses on her clients’ requirements, preferences and how the space will be lived in, applying them into her creative designs. Susan’s favorite part of the design process is finding the beauty that emerges from new selections and carefully integrating them with unique family heirlooms.

Whether fashionably polished, casually elegant or historically rustic, each space is timeless. Susan is on trend and capable of mediating diverse influences into current interiors which has positioned her a following globally.
