I’m thrilled to give Susie a well-deserved 5 star review! She worked wonders on our hair salon, bringing a fresh, stylish look that has wowed both our clients and team.

There was one element of her design proposal that that I wanted to change and she came up with the most beautiful alternative which was even better than I could have imagined.

Thanks to her creative ideas, I can proudly say that we are the prettiest salon on the Northern Beaches.
We couldn’t be happier with the results!

Susie Trainor developed a fabulous design concept for my new Optometry practice and retail premises. She responded to my brief with style and a great level of understanding. Susie delivered a job true to the vision on the story boards. The result is classy and contemporary with a touch of vintage whimsy.

Susie was delightful to deal with. She was onsite to oversee any design related installations. Susie was attentive to practical issues and design details and communicated clearly.

The practice has only been open 3 weeks and we are already seeing new customers who are attracted by the street appeal. I could not be happier. Without reservation I would recommend Susie T Designs.

Susie was our interior designer for a commercial office we recently completed. Her ideas, service and attention to detail throughout the whole project were fantastic. I would highly recommend!

When I moved into a lovely new apartment in Lane Cove, my daughter Claire asked an interior decorator, Susie Trainor, to help me furnish and outfit the flat. I loved what Susie did for me. The blinds, curtains, chairs, pictures and the rest were just perfect. Just beautiful. I am old but my apartment is now very modern and even vibrantly designed. I especially love the big lamp Susie put in the corner of the room. It lights up the whole room, and its view, in a really magical way.

Many thanks to Susie.

Susie has a warm and friendly personality which provided for a great first impression and her website also delivered confidence in her expertise.

We recently moved into a big house with many rooms to cater for and Susie understood our look and feel from the very beginning. She was on the pulse with the briefs provided and we have not been disappointed with the choices she has been able to help us make. In addition, Susie understood our budget and provided guidance on pieces worth spending money on and highlighted items better suited to cheaper options.

Susie has been involved every step of the way, with house visits to ensure the furniture and placement transpired to the vision/mood board she presented. Susie is very easy to work with and eliminated stress by choosing colour, furniture and furniture placement as well as updating the interior colour scheme to breathe new life into an old home.

Susie also understood that our household is very time poor and provided additional services to cater for us not being home as well as referrals to trades people. This was a big help as we didn’t have time to find tradespeople ourselves and then to get the quotes.

I would not hesitate to recommend Susie to decorate and style your home as she has a keen eye, great sense of style and attention to detail. She understands beauty and form and selects items or pieces which are different, stand out, and makes a statement in every room.

Susie T designed most of the interior of our house. She designed an overall look on computer that we were happy with. Then she helped with the purchasing.
Now our house is quite stylish and colour coordinated. Guests have even made comments about it!

She was very professional and talented. A pleasure to deal with and well worth the money.

We will use her services again!

This client had asked Susie T Designs for help with her lounge room scheme and furniture placement.

“Thanks, this is so helpful, how cool is your floor plan software? I love it and referred to it so many times in the stores yesterday.
Thank you, thank you, thank you again! “

“Another big thank you for the fabulous job you did on the school library. The space looks amazing, airy and welcoming, so much so, that my son, who has not been a great reader in the past, now loves taking books out and is even happy to sit there over some lunch times and leaf through a book or two! You have worked wonders. Many thanks to you and to your team!”

Huge congratulations on the St Leonards job! It looks fabulous & it’s lifted business in so many ways. New clients just walking in the door is the most exciting plus!

Susie made our house a home and one that delights us every day. I was terrified of choosing furniture and homewares for our newly renovated house but Susie made the process so enjoyable and took away all the stress. The end result was exactly what we were looking for, gorgeous to look at but also functional and homely to live in. We can’t thank her enough. If it had been left to me I would still be struggling with the first decision.

Susie Trainor created a fantastic design for our Executive Reception that immediately hit the brief. We wanted a space that would encompass our branding and our corporate message, while reflecting our long heritage.  The result is modern and sophisticated yet very warm and welcoming and immediately impresses visitors and clients. Our staff love coming into the space every day,  and it has been so successful that  we will be engaging Susie T Designs to continue the scheme throughout other areas of our site. Susie is very professional, listens carefully to what is needed and is a delight to work with.

Susie provided an amazing service and great quality finish to our office back in February 2017. The layout and the choices of furniture were spot on!
She made everything very easy from a customer point of you and I would have no hesitation in recommending her services to anyone.
We have again engaged with Susie to upgrade our current office and change the layout as our business has evolved. We are very much looking forward to this next chapter!

Susie T just completed my Mum’s interior design project. She did a superb job! She was extremely professional, thoughtful and detailed in her approach. Mum and I were thrilled with the outcome! Everything looked beautiful but, more importantly, suited my Mum’s practical needs and tasted too. I’d highly recommend Susie T Designs.

Susie provided us with some outstanding interior design advice! We were extremely pleased with the service we received. She was professional, respectful and collaborative in her approach and provided us with great ideas! We were extremely happy with the result!

Susie Trainor takes the pain out of interior decorating. While I love the idea of a beautifully styled house, I have neither the eye nor the patience to figure it out on my own. After coming to my home and asking a few questions about what I like, Susie took me on a shopping spree and helped me look beyond my usual scope. She helped on everything from a whole dining room makeover to picking the perfect cushions and paint for my lounge room.

Susie was also able to advise how to take existing decorating pieces and give better placement in the house. Above all, Susie was respectful of my budget and didn’t try to push me into items which I could not afford. I would highly recommend Susie to any prospective client.

“Sue worked wonders with her suggestions to transform our dated 80’s pink semi to a light, bright and welcoming modern home. She advised us on all the colours and finishes and we were so happy with the result! We also asked her to help style our place when it came time to sell and it sold so quickly, the blue wall made it stand out from the rest! Now we have our brand new home, she has helped us with custom pendant lights, window treatments, furniture, rugs and layout. We can’t wait to see the final transformation!”

Susie has been part of my team for the past 18 months. She has added an exciting and unique dynamic to our business with her fresh and new approach in the design of commercial and hospitality projects that we have undertaken.

Her recent accolades, style and talent with residential design is one of the primary reasons we have selected Susie to join our team

Apart from that, Susie has a wonderful warm and friendly personality which complements both her style and class that extends into every facet of the designs that she does. On behalf of our clients that she has worked for and completed a number of projects with, those clients have nothing but the highest regard and respect for Susie.

As a Builder, and from the construction perspective, I have worked with many designers over the past 25 years and it is rare to find a designer that is as confident in her own design but also accommodating when it comes to build-a-bilty. Some designers don’t necessarily listen or take advice from other experts in the Trade, however Susie has demonstrated to me on projects that move quickly, that she will listen and accommodate recommendations and as result, the look, feel and designs that she had originally envisaged have been achieved

No doubt then, I have no hesitation to recommend Susie to design, decorate and style your home, office or restaurant with that keen eye, great sense of style and attention to detail. She has an ability to bring together many colours, pieces and finishes which are different, that stand out and is a signature of her very own style.
