With influences ranging from architecture, art, fashion, and travel, designer Suzanne Kasler’s work reflects her wide range of interests and inspirations. Her designs, described as “luminous, distinctive, and timeless,” have earned her recognition as part of Architectural Digest’s AD100 as well as on Elle Décor’s A-List. A master at mixing styles and eras seamlessly, she creates spaces for her clients that feel natural, elegant and unique.

A lifelong love for design drew Kasler to study Interior Architecture in college which led her to go on to work at several commercial firms before discovering that her passion was truly in residential design. “It was a natural evolution to shift to solely residential design after my husband and I relocated to Atlanta.” In addition to her work as an interior designer, she has gone on to produce signature lines for brands such as Ballard Designs and Visual Comfort amongst others.

Creating so much beautifully designed work requires deep wells of creative inspiration. For Kasler, one such well is her love of travel. “Paris is one of my favorite travel destinations. Going to the restaurants, shops (big and small), I always find their sensibility, color palettes, architecture, edited style and details so inspiring. I find something new and interesting every time I am there.” It is no surprise then that French Modern is one of her favorite eras for design. “Everything Jean-Michel Frank did was innovative, chic and truly timeless.”

Another source of inspiration is her appreciation for the work of designer John Saladino. “He always focuses on the interior and the architecture as a singular element. The interiors and the architecture are seamlessly one. This idea has always inspired my work.”

Regardless of the style of a particular project, the mix of modern and antique or vintage pieces is a go-to for creating unique spaces for her clients. “I always say that it’s really all about the mix! I don’t ever just use one style, vendor or era. A good interior must feature a range of styles. Also, it’s about living with what you love. Finding special pieces that resonate and speak to you is a great way to choose.”

When designing her own home, she brings the same love of finding unique pieces, often vintage, to make her space feel special. “For my own personal style, it’s all about the mix! As I collect things, I love antiques, modern, vintage, high, low and the best thing about doing your own space is that you can really live with a more personal mix. The beautiful console in our entry was found at the Paris flea market. It’s unusual proportions and is covered in parchment. I used it as a muse for the Verdun Cabinet in my new collection for Hickory Chair.”
