Susan E. Brown, Allied Member ASID, Green AP, is an interior designer whose experience in residential interior design and textile science has created a balance of aesthetics and function throughout her work. During her many years of creating interiors for her clients, she has developed a unique style, blending contemporary and classical elements. Her trademark approach to interiors results in design that is at once sophisticated and personal.
Susan received her B.S. in textile science and her M.A. in applied design from the University of Minnesota. Her thesis focus was "Integrative Interruptions in Color Relationships.
Growing up, my mother had every interior design and fashion magazine possible around the house. I spent countless hours perusing through these periodicals. Little did I know then, that I was absorbing furniture and accessory placement, color synthesis, texture, line and how they all came together to form a unified and fabulous look. My mother never pursued interior design on a professional basis, but spent many days, with me by her side, arranging, rearranging, adding, and subtracting components in the rooms in her home. I observed and observed.
My interior design work is a reflection of the importance of integrating elements within a designed environment, and the importance of creating a unified space that also functions to meet the personal needs of each client. We are all strongly affected by our surroundings whether we are aware of it or not. I believe the success of each designed space is important because it strongly affects one’s happiness, productivity, and sense of fulfillment.
