Reflections On Ramsey Businesses ward-winning decorator Susan Tenny, C.I.D., provides a complete inhome or in-office interior decorating service by bringing thousands of samples of drapery fabrics, furniture, carpet and area rugs, wall coverings, and accessories directly to her clients. She then is able to design the room in the client’s own lighting and existing furnishings. “Working this way tends to be very comfortable for the client as they can really see what works in the room, plus it’s a huge time-saving convenience.” Susan specializes in “Lifestyle Design,” which is all about the client’s personal style, taste, functional needs, and budget. “My clients really enjoy working with a knowledgeable decorator who is the owner of the company, rather than trying to select pieces by themselves with only the aid of a salesperson who may not be around when your order is supposed to be placed. “We don’t charge design fees or hourly Susan Tenny, C.I.D. rates nor do we have ‘minimums.’ I pride myself on my ability to work within my clients’ budget, custom designing the room for function, comfort, beauty, cohesiveness, and flow. By taking careful measurements and making floor plans, we avoid expensive mistakes. We handle all the details, ordering, and scheduling, and are personally on-site to supervise installation and delivery. We follow up with our clients afterwards, as their complete satisfaction is of the utmost importance. “My clients are working directly with a small business owner who has the power of a large established company behind her,” she adds. “Unlike a store, we have no inventory or loyalty to a particular manufacturer. We listen to our clients and put their needs first as we make our choices from hundreds of vendors.” Susan is ready to help clients with projects of any size, whether it’s just one window treatment, a room that needs one or two updates, or a large-scale makeover.
