Susan E. Brown, Allied ASID, is a full-service, nationally published, interior designer who works with her clients to create spaces that are both sophisticated and personal. From the door hinges to the sofa style, Susan carefully guides the design process step by step. Her firm commitment to her clients leads them to trust her, respect her judgment and feel comfortable talking about what is important to them. For Susan, that close relationship is one of the most rewarding aspects of her work, and she revels in creating surroundings that bring her clients joy.
A master at integrating color in and between spaces, Susan also enjoys blending contemporary and classical elements. But it is the client’s needs and desires that are paramount – whether that means making a completely redesigned master bath dovetail seamlessly with an executive’s morning routine, or incorporating a cherished grandmother’s turquoise vase into the living room plan. Or perhaps it means finding just the right way to feature a prized memento from an overseas trip.
Susan’s love of design goes back to her childhood, when she spent countless hours engrossed in her mother’s abundance of decorating and fashion magazines – subconsciously absorbing the fundamentals of the craft. She pursued formal study of her passion at the University of Minnesota, earning a B.S. in Textile Science and an M.A. in Applied Design focusing her energy on "Integrating Interruptions in Color Relationships". Her work is grounded in the conviction that we are all strongly affected by our surroundings, whether we are aware of it or not.
Susan believes that one’s happiness, productivity and sense of fulfillment depend upon the success of each designed space. Yet everyone is different; everyone has a unique story to tell within their own walls. Let Susan help you tell yours.
