Meet Suzanne

headshotSuzanne Kipp is an Interior Designer on the North Shore of Chicago with a passion for creating elegant, timeless interiors. With over twenty years of experience in all aspects of interior design and decoration, Suzanne has continually refined her eye and style with a constancy of classic design elements mixed with warm, approachable accents.

A graduate of Miami (Ohio) University’s Housing & Interior Design program, Suzanne incorporates her strong, technical knowledge of interior architecture and planning seamlessly into her work. She started her career in the contract design industry, which reinforced her keen understanding of the balance between functionality and aesthetics.

While commercial design proved a terrific training ground for high velocity, time-sensitive design work, personalized residential design has always been Suzanne’s passion. She was a founding partner of the residential firm Trio Design Group in Winnetka, Illinois, and later formed her eponymous firm to allow maximum control over both her and her clients’ projects. Her work has been recognized in Midwest Living, Better Homes & Garden’s Beautiful Homes and Traditional Home publications.

Suzanne’s design strength lies in creating beautiful, serene sanctuaries that provide a respite for today’s harried families.  Architectural details and a much celebrated eye for subtle colors afford her spaces a sleek, personal touch; while also spotlighting exquisite antiques, fine artwork, and unique personal objects. She manages to combine both high-style glamour and refined simplicity into environments that are elegant, yet unpretentious.  In the end, Suzanne believes a home should tell a story of those who live there – not to define them, but to celebrate who they already are.
