AN UNEXPECTED COMBINATION

Todd Martz and Susan Nelson, design professionals with more than 35 years combined design experience, understand
the importance of listening so that clients get the best results. Todd, a little more conservative, and Susan, a little more
exuberant, have created a design mash up that gives the client and the store the best of both.

Susan

Susan studied interior design at Marymount University after a career in politics and raising children. Her past experiences taught her the value of a sense of humor, responsibility and respect. Those values continue to be important as she works with clients to provide practical and personal solutions to their decorating challenges. Susan has a love of color and an ability to mix patterns to create inspiring and unique spaces. She has participated in the DC Design House and her work has been featured in Home and Design and Traditional Home.

MC

Susan’s help on refreshing three rooms in our house was invaluable. It was a complex job with lots of moving parts. The open floor plan-living and dining space – had to work together and O wanted lots of color and patterns. Susan offered numerous options and we selected 8 fabulous fabrics. We also upgraded the sunroom with 4 additional fabrics. We purchased 2 new loveseats, 2 side chairs and a bench. Other pieces – i.e. dining room chairs seat were re-upholstered;kitchen chairs re-painted and new seat cushions made. Susan would offer at least two price point options and make suggestions about window treatments, cleaning existing rugs and wall colors.
