Susan Rust Interior Design | Testimonials and Reviews


Interior Design

We hired Susan to help us with a 2700 square foot renovation of our home in Elbow Valley. She spent a lot of time listening to what we wanted and developed a floor plan for us that was perfectly suited to our family. She had some great creative ideas that we hadn’t thought of which makes our new space unique. She chose all the materials, designed all the cabinets and built in millwork, designed the lighting, selected all the plumbing, light fixtures and hardware, and helped us with the decorating. We loved how she put it all together and made it flow perfectly from the other areas of our home. We were very happy with Susan’s professionalism, her attention to detail, and the extra effort she put in to make our home look fantastic! We love our new space and we receive lots of compliments from family and friends. We would highly recommend Susan to anyone who is looking for a great Interior Designer!

Betty & Curtis Dyck Home Renovation

I met Susan through a referral for the good work that she did installing blinds at my sister’s house. Susan designed and managed the renovation of my condo, including the kitchen, living room, bedrooms, and bathrooms. Susan has an easygoing personality, so it was very easy working with her and making decisions with her. She listened carefully to my requirements. Her design was personalized and functional and included my necessities and preferences. Susan made the effort to obtain the best quality, functionality and beauty within my budget. The final appearance of the condo was awesome. When I decided to sell, it was bought by the first person that viewed it, in less than a week. I am highly satisfied with Susan’s work and have requested her professional help to improve the appearance of my new condo.

We have worked with Susan Rust on numerous occasions. She has done two complete home designs for us within a 15 year period. Both builds were high end projects complete with consult on decor and finishing. We found Susan to be extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. She has a high degree of professionalism and yet maintains a personal touch. Since our two major builds Susan has been available for consults on updates to the interior and exterior. We would recommend Susan without reservation.

Susan Rust is an individual who works with incredible integrity, thoughtfulness, and attention to detail.  Her designs are both beautiful and functional. Since the beginning of the design process, Susan was a careful listener. She ensured that my office space was used efficiently without compromising the specific functional constraints required for my well-being and without sacrificing the ambiance I wanted to create in my optical showroom.  I can see how comfortable my patients feel by the amount of time they linger and casually talk to my staff. I believe her design choices will endure aesthetically and functionally as my practice grows.

I consider myself fortunate to have found Susan and for her to have chosen my project. She went well above and beyond her responsibilities during a difficult time for me. There are few individuals that have the ability and fortitude to positively affect another person's life in such a way during their career.  I highly recommend Susan Rust as an interior designer, especially to those who are also thoughtful individuals and have a design dream they want realized!

We asked Susan to refresh our office appearance ten years after our last renovation. She delivered exactly what we wanted - a very colourful, modern renovation in a short period of time! The end result looks amazing, and the quality of the materials she chose will keep it looking new for years to come! Not only is our office a beautiful place to work at every day, but our patients and customers are ecstatic about the new look!

Thanks so much for all your support and assistance with my decorating needs from staging my house to sell, to choosing paint colours, flooring and lay out for furniture placement. Your staging was superb with meticulous attention to detail, right down to the bowl of lemons on the kitchen table. Thank you also for your advice and assistance with hanging my art. And finally thank you for assisting me with the selection, order and installation of my Hunter Douglas motorized shades, which work with a remote and are controlled from my I-pad. I have found your ability to see the final product and provide advice accordingly, extraordinary. Colour choices as well as co-ordinating fabrics, flooring and all the other materials have been excellent. I am also grateful for advice on the deck, and anticipate a gorgeous fireplace wall with custom built in cabinets, which is in the planning stages!

She has been able to enhance our home with her great ability to see things we could not. Some I have never been able to imagine. She has supplied all of our Hunter Douglas blinds, motorized silhouettes and draperies with a very caring and professional attitude. Any problems with the blinds have been dealt with promptly and efficiently. Thank you Susan!

After purchasing a new home in the community of Aspen Woods I consulted with Susan at Susan Rust Interior Design in regards to window treatments.  Her professional service and expertise was greatly appreciated.  I was unsure of which blinds to choose for the whole home and Susan made the experience a breeze with her vast knowledge and design experience.  She delivered them in a timely fashion and also installed them.  I do love my Hunter Douglas Vignette shades, Thank you Susan!
