Su Bacon Designs

Whether it's Craftsman, Mid-century, Spanish Revival, French, Italian, Contemporary, or funky eclectic, your surroundings should reflect your uniqueness and personality, and it should be a custom fit to your needs and lifestyle. Su Bacon Designs is inspired, first and foremost, by you and by your vision for your home, restaurant, or commercial space.

The job of a designer is not to imprint themselves onto your environment, but to facilitate your process as you dream and make plans for your domain and the future you envision.

To achieve this level of personal service, Su Bacon Designs is keenly focused on getting to know what you love and what you need, on answering your questions and alleviating your concerns. You want to know what's possible and how to combine all the elements you want into your plans. You want a designer with experience, empathy and insight.

Get started today. Contact award-winning designer Su Bacon for a consultation. She wants to start getting to know you.

“The highest compliment I get is when a client tells me someone said, ‘Wow, this home is so you. How did you do it?’ That's when I know I've done my job and I can smile.”– Su Bacon
