Creating a dream space is not an easy job. It takes a team of carpenters, electricians, plumbers, painters, and other professionals to create the most eye-catching designs under the leadership of an interior designer. An interior designer is involved in every aspect of the process, starting from furnishing to designing to selecting colors, along with many other factors. They are well aware of how lighting, colors, surface finishes, and several other things influence the look and feel of the final product.
However, to create those eye-catching designs, one needs creative thinking and a tremendous experience with an aesthetic sense. One such interior designer is Susan Semmelmann, the founder of Susan Semmelmann Interiors, delivering a unique and creative outcome while making the entire interior designing experience fun and exciting.
A veteran of the industry, Susan has worked in several facets of the construction and designing industry for more than two decades, and through those experiences, she has grown to love her family of fellow designers, architects, and builders who work together to make dream home while sharing the common goal of supporting the community.
Susan initiated her entrepreneurial path with a wealth of experience, a forced enthusiasm, and a small group of allies. Soon her passion, coupled with great team efforts, helped her find progress. Her customer base expanded quickly, and so did her team to meet the growing demand. At present, the firm is in the process of launching its Fort Worth Design Studio, which will serve as a design resource for the public and other design professionals. The firm will also have an online store, making beautiful and innovative products available directly to the public.
As the founder of her firm, Susan prefers to begin each consultation with a dreaming conversation; what is the client’s vision for their home, and how Susan and her team can partner with them to bring those visions into reality. The firm offers hundreds of luxury vendor lines with a wide range of styles and choices that can fit any taste. Additionally, Susan Semmelmann Interiors offer its clients a fully customizable design experience with its own line of bedding, drapery, and furnishings manufactured in-house using cutting-edge technology.
The Greatest Professional Accomplishment
Susan feels launching her own brand in 2019 is one of her most outstanding achievements. She says, “I started Susan Semmelmann Interiors because I had a dream and a vision for a company that I finally wanted to pursue; to write a new story with a heart of giving as the centerpiece.”
Susan Semmelmann Interior’s employees are on a mission to be givers, to be gracious, and offer their time, talents, and resources to those around them, to be authentic and relational with clients, co-workers, and business partners to bring beauty in many ways.
“The spirit of living is in the giving” has been my mission statement from day one.” Susan explains, “I launched my brand because I didn’t want to be limited in my ability to create
something truly magical. We are experts in luxury design; it’s what we do. Bringing joy and giving back is why we do it.
Preparing for Challenge
Susan feels flexibility is of utmost importance as she often needs to adjust her plans on the move. However, her team is terrific at working together in order to keep everything in line and on track. Through this process, Susan has become a student of her environment, always learning and adjusting the path forward.
For Susan, success looks like a thriving family, connection with close friends, happy clients, and broad community outreach. She considers these the pillars in her life that sustain her and get her moving daily. She says, “The practice of keeping my purpose and passion in front of me first thing every morning is essential to realizing these big dreams and experiencing joy in the process.”
Creating a Dynamic Work Experience
As the founder and owner of SSI, Susan is entirely focused on creating a dynamic and exciting work environment with her fantastic team. “I have trusted people around me who have been by my side for years, laboring to bring the dream of SSI to reality. Everyone has their area of expertise, but we all pitch in when and where we are needed.”- She stated.
The firm has also developed a ‘fingers in the dirt’ mentality, where none is above or below any given task. Susan loves being in the field with her team and meeting clients face-to-face.
Getting Ready for the Future
“We are so thankful that our company has experienced steady and significant growth over the past three years! We focus on client satisfaction first and foremost, and happy clients bring referrals. It’s a simple equation with amazing results.”- states Susan.
With SSI, the client requesting a one-room makeover receives the same focus and attention as the entire home design. Both the projects are equally impactful to the clients, and SSI wants to make each one special and unique. The firm’s present in-store and online expansion means that it now has more opportunities to collaborate and connect with broader community outreach, and Susan is very excited about that.
