After a successful career in Human Resources, I wanted to move into a field that better utilized my creative abilities. Once I started taking Interior Design courses at Harrington College of Design I knew I had found my niche.
After graduating in 2006, I worked for two well-regarded residential design firms. Using the skills I gained there, I started my own firm, Susan Rayner Interiors.
My aesthetic is clean and classic, whether the style is modern, traditional or somewhere in between. I am passionate about creating positive change for my clients.
I have a friendly, collaborative approach that allows my clients to enjoy the design process. This ensures they will love the end result – a house they enjoy coming home to.
Ready to create a beautiful, unique, functional space in your home?
Here’s what clients have to say:
Before working with Susan I was unsure how to put the room together and unable to make decisions. While working with her I was able to ask questions and discuss ideas and options. I was very pleased with the comprehensive binder that she so carefully put together for me. I was also pleased with the choices – there were inexpensive as well as some pricier options. I took the binder with me when I shopped and it really helped. The Room Design Package as allowed me to put together a new room that makes me happy.
Susan is a very creative and talented designer. I loved how she came up with so many ideas that I would never have thought of. I can’t wait till the next project!”

Before working with Susan I was stuck. My Room Re-Design Package allowed me to envision what I previously couldn’t. I was very happy with the suggestions. She really nailed my style. I was happily surprised that it worked so well. ”
