Hello Everyone. I hope you had a wonderful week and weekend. Though I was busy over the last week, I did feel like something was missing from my daily thoughts (blogging) and by the time I had finished all of my work (which was mostly paperwork and book keeping) I was ready to create another post.
Today I wanted to talk about Suzy Hoodless. I came across Suzy’s work by chance. One day, a fellow blogger and Interior Designer who specialises in children’s rooms (Ursula from Room to Bloom) had tweeted a response to a request for a recommended hotel to stay at in London. The recommendation was for The Hoxton Hotel in Shoreditch.
I had never heard of this hotel and being curious and knowing Ursula’s good taste, I promptly looked it up. This is when I discovered the talent of Suzy Hoodless.
Suzy seems destined to work in the design industry. She started out as an assistant at Designers Guild working under the very talented Tricia Guild in 1992. Her next move was then to House and Garden magazine after which she joined a start up magazine called Wallpaper as Interiors Editor. After 5 years, Suzy then branched out on her own and started up a Design Consultancy focusing on residential and commercial projects.
Soon after she was approached by 2 sisters who requested her to provide creative input in their new homes in Scotland, this was the start of what has been a very impressive career thus far. Suzy has since moved on to work on numerous commercial and residential projects from The Hoxton Grill for The Soho House Group to a private Beach House in Barbados. She has also collaborated with companies such as The Rug Company and Osborne & Little to design respective collections.
Suzy’s designs are not contained to any particular period or aesthetic which lends itself to be eclectic. She tends to take stunning pieces and then creates a room around them helping them all to appear to work together. I have provided two interiors which showcase her diversity. Both are homes for families, one a lodge in Scotland and the other in West London but totally different in feel yet cohesive in style within their own spaces.
Which home is your favourite? If you’d like to see more of Suzy’s work, take a look at her website SuzyHoodless.com.
Have a lovely Monday, it’s sunny over here in London so I think a picnic might be in order. Till tomorrow. xD
