"Working with Susan was a pleasure. When I first purchased the hotel I was overwhelmed by the scale of the renovation that was needed, but Susan was able to break down the process into manageably sized tasks. Working directly with the contractors, the architect, and the engineers, Susan was able to translate my ideas and vision into something tangible and cohesive that radically transformed the project. She was able to source materials and integrate design elements that would have been impossible for me to find on my own. The over all results of the project are stunning. I have received so many compliments and pleased reviews from guests and locals alike. I would highly recommend Susan Spieler as a designer for any project large or small."

"Susan and I have worked together on two house projects over the years. I found her to be an excellent listener with a very keen eye. In both cases she was a brilliant source and always an enthusiastic retriever of various materials. She is able to provide whatever degree of professional advice any client would require and I can recommend her without reservation!"

"It has been our pleasure to work with Susan Spieler for over two decades on multiple projects, large and small. For our new home in Santa Barbara, Susan not only came up with very pleasing palette for our house colors, but also she advised us on broad design concepts that unified the internal and external aspects of the property. In addition to the “big picture” conceptual work, she also excelled at all the details. She fully furnished our house and she ably translated our personal preferences into the design. She also did a wonderful job of choosing art objects and other decorative pieces to complete and complement the decor. Susan Spieler has absolutely impeccable taste and we would recommend her highly."
