“Great interiors are defined as much by emotion as they are by beauty. They make us feel happy, comfortable, inspired, and alive. A successful design in my opinion is one in which my clients and I collaborate to produce a space that reflects their personal style and delivers both emotion and beauty.”
As Owner, Interior Designer, and Director of Marketing, Susan wears many hats in our organization. However, the one that keeps her creative flame burning is Designer. Working with a team of talented and skilled interior designers reinforces her belief that great design often flows from a team effort. She finds that working with the creative crew at Nandina is one of the best parts of her work life – that and an unlimited supply of fresh coffee. She loves every aspect of the design business and feels fortunate to have had the opportunity to have been the lead designer on major projects that involved full scale renovation or ground up construction. Her design aesthetic is eclectic; she loves the purity of modern contemporary design but lives comfortably in her 1929 historic home punctuated with antiques and abstract art. Her four children, ranging from 18 to 26 years old, continually inspire her both in design and life. On her bucket list is a trip to Prague with her family.
