Today we are back with Susan for another round of interesting Q &A.

TJ: What has been your favorite design job so far?

Susan: My favorite design project was a project in the Virginia mountains. This was a second home for my clients. I was allowed to design the house from the furniture to the silverware in the drawers. The project will be featured in the October edition of Southern Living. The home will be used for the cover shot as well as 5 interior pages.

TJ: WOW. That’s pretty impressive! Do you read many design magazines & blogs? Which ones?

Susan: Sure – I read them all! I even read blogs. Traditional Home, Domino, Southern Accents etc. Modern and traditional – I can get ideas and inspiration from anywhere but the best source of inspiration is by traveling and seeing new things.

Tj: You’ve even done some blogging of your own, right? How did you get into blogging about interior design?

Susan: I started blogging to write down all my thoughts on my work and the work of others. Clients and others really responded to it. They like to see all the work I have done. They are also interested in the process so we are adding video of projects. All the writing has inspired me to write and book. I am only about half way through but I enjoy putting my thoughts down on paper. It is very therapeutic. The design life can be very hectic. Keeping all the subcontractors on schedule is a bear!

Well that was fun! Thanks again Susan. We are looking forward to the video blogging and to your book!

And thank you all for reading.
Have a superior optimum day,
TJ
