Yesterday I had the privilege of spending the afternoon with
(along with 100 other designers).
It was lovely to hear her thoughts that go into the interiors she designs. She highlighted several pieces of her work including her own home from her book,
This is the entry to her home which she had faux painted stone on the walls...beautiful. She loves the idea of a non-traditional entry, I think this says 'welcome' immediately.
This really grabbed me, I love the runner on the stairs and the mix of art going up the stairs.
Suzanne bought this lovely tapestry at the Paris flea market and rolled it up and stuffed in in a 'roll-on' suitcase to get home. It became the focal of her family room.
Love this corner, note the mix of art.
This is a fabulous corner that she designed with a John Saladino settee. I love the screen. I can imagine sitting and having a glass of champagne.
Suzanne loves stripes and you will see them in many of her designs. If you will notice, many of her walls are white, but there is no sense of a 'white' room because of her use of textiles.
This project SK worked with Keith Summerour Architects. This area sits above the living area and was open, the architect designed the lovely wall of windows to envelope the space...beautiful.
Notice again the stripes, I love this space.
Suzanne also adores the 'X' motif that she also uses in much of her design.
I am enamored with this room. I don't know that I would have the guts. Walls and drapes the same color, note the mix of chairs at the table...love that! SK told the homeowner that if they did not like the color she would pay to have it changed.
Of course they loved it!
I most definitely was inspired. Her parting words were 'be true to yourself'. Love that!
Thank you Suzanne, you are lovely and ooze with talent. You inspire Me!
