Designing Homes and Spaces that invite you to Stay...


Meet Susan...


Susan Wilson is an award winning interior designer originally from Chesapeake, VA.  She has designed model homes, show houses, residences, club houses, and offices throughout the Tidewater area. Susan lends creativity and expertise to many local builders by assisting them with their architectural styles, interior features, and selections.  She has successfully bridged the gap between builders and homeowners to achieve their "dream home".  

Susan has received Coastal Virginia Magazine's Best of COVA Reader's Choice Awards in  2017 and 2018 for merchandising.  She has been the lead designer for the Coastal Virginia Idea House partnering with Stephen Alexander Homes and Coastal Virginia Magazine.  These Idea Houses were featured in Coastal Virginia Magazine in 2015, 2017, and 2018.  

She has also participated in the St. Jude Dreamhome campaign many times designing interiors for local builders: Stephen Alexander Homes and Kirbor Homes.   In 2018, she was the lead designer overseeing the first St. Jude Dreamhome Designer Showhouse featuring 6 local designers.  St. Jude raised over $1.1 million dollars during this campaign.

For Susan, every project is about creating a home or space that tells a story and brings warmth and comfort to those who enter it.  

New for 2019

A busy 2019....

So thankful for all the exciting design projects coming up in 2019!

Retreat at Bennett's Creek in Suffolk, Va -

Decorating will soon be starting in Late March-April for this new riverfront community in Suffolk, Va.  This neighborhood is being built by Weldenfield and Rowe with whom my first collaboration was at Riverview at the Preserve in Chesapeake 2 years ago.  The interior design scope will include a clubhouse and 3 different model homes.  The clubhouse interior is a casually elegant rustic farmhouse feel which fits perfectly with the riverfront landscape. Looking forward to transforming these spaces so that prospective buyers will want to call this neighborhood home!.  

Coastal Virginia Idea House 2019 in Virginia Beach, Va -

Selections are in process and construction is well underway for this show house in Ashby's Bridge near Sandbridge Beach.  This home is being built by Stephen Alexander Homes..  The interiors will have a modern farmhouse, relaxed coastal vibe to coordinate with its white farmhouse exterior. Decorating will start late May. Stay tuned for the tour dates!

I am blessed to have 2 new residential clients that are building waterfront custom homes. It is always a joy to be working near beautiful views!

Look forward to sharing these projects with you soon!
