Atlanta-based Suzanne Kasler has become one of the nation’s most popular designers. Her approachable rooms offer a kicky, eclectic spin on her region’s traditional canon—abstract art, European antiques, and classic modernist furniture are part and parcel of Kasler’s inviting style.
For over twenty years, Kasler has created warm, inviting environments that strike a balance between elegant, traditional design and practical comfort. Her neutral palette, spiced with hits of color, creates warm spaces that are elegant yet inviting. Suzanne often asserts that “a room should be collected, not decorated.” Incorporating the personal collections of her clients with fine art and antiques, contemporary pieces and custom-designed furniture, Suzanne’s meaningful interiors straddle that rare middle ground between sophisticate and ingénue. She brings a comprehensive knowledge of interior architecture and decorative arts to her design work.
Her preferred approach to designing a house starts well before the blueprints are drafted. Ms. Kasler, who grew up largely in Indianapolis, likes to work closely with the architect to get the floor plan right and guarantee that she doesn’t have to camouflage poor bones.
Kasler, who has masterminded interiors at Tennessee’s famed Blackberry Farm resort (in collaboration with founder Kreis Beall) as well as countless homes across the U.S., also designs a line of furniture for Hickory Chair.
Although her brand has expanded exponentially over the last few years, Suzanne remains true to her passion for designing interiors: “Being able to work as a designer is a gift—an amazing opportunity to connect to people and design spaces that inspire them.”
