“My husband and I are normally ‘DIY’ type people, but due to a fire that required an unexpected whole house remodel, we got the opportunity to put Susan’s design expertise to good use.  I don’t know what we would have done without her!  Susan designed a new kitchen for us which I absolutely love.  She is very well versed in the essentials of a functional kitchen with a good flow for cooking and entertaining.  I trusted Susan to draw on her experiences and her own kitchen layout to come up with a design that worked for our house and was within our budget. The end product is marvellous, with features such as 2 islands. custom built cabinetry with Hafele inserts, display shelves and many other unique features that suit our style and the way we live. In addition to the kitchen, Susan also designed our two bathrooms.  She helped me find some beautiful tiles, helped line up tradies for the installation and also provide general oversight that the job was being done properly. As this was a whole house remodel, Susan has also assisted me with paint colors and furnishings throughout the house.  One of the many things that I really love about working with Susan is that I can provide a general idea on what I have in mind, and she will provide me great options to chose from.  It was invaluable to have assistance with the leg work for this project.”

“I am a fellow interior designer and architectural photographer and had the pleasure of photographing Susan’s own residence, a 60’s house in Meadowbank. Susan took me through the house and in each room explained what she had done to transform it from a basic 60’s house to a home with that definite ‘wow’ factor. From built in shelving units that act as a screen and place for sculpture, a stunning modern kitchen with bar fridge and custom made mosiac splashback, through to the spacious and beautiful tile design of the master ensuite, along with many other features her house was amazing. From what I have seen I would highly recommend her design skills and flair and she is lovely to deal with.”

“Susan Templer is a pleasure to work with. She was able to focus on what I wanted and create spaces that are beautiful and functional. The end result is that we now have a beautiful home that is an aesthetic expression of our own personal taste, which Susan helped us create.”

“Working with Templer Interiors was a great pleasure. In addition to a sophisticated design aesthetic, Susan Templer demonstrated real passion and professionalism in her work. My kitchen and bath turned out better than I imagined.”

“Susan helped me reconfigure my lounge/dining area and the result is fantastic! She listened to what I wanted to achieve, made some suggestions and stuck through all the details to get it done. She really knows how to listen, and uses her talent and experience to get the best results for her clients. Going forward, I would never consider another renovation, big or small, without consulting Susan first. ”

“My husband and I had recently moved into a new house knowing the kitchen and bathroom needed a complete overhaul. Having never done anything of this scale, Susan helped guide us through the process and keep our expectations (and budget) in check. She took me shopping and educated me on the various materials, products and appliances. Susan was happy to be as involved or as hands-off as we needed. With a relatively tight time frame, she used her experience and strengths to coordinate an excellent team of tradesmen and keep the project under control. It’s an absolute joy now to cook and entertain, and we walk into our fabulous new kitchen and bathroom with a big smile everyday!”

– Lisa and Matt Clark, Auckland

“Susan helped me pick out many different types of materials for my kitchen remodel and most importantly, ‘held’ my hand and gave me confidence when builders and installers encountered problems that I found confusing and overwhelming. Susan also encouraged me to add some personal ideas where I was unsure of the mix and it’s turned out beautifully!”

– Lisa Elizabeth, Auckland

“Susan was always available, ready and willing to problem solve. She is reliable, easy to talk to, and gets the job done. Susan is truly a hands-on person and will oversee each detail just to make sure her clients are happy and satisfied. With my busy schedule, there were times I couldn’t be there to meet with the contractor or did not know how to communicate what I needed. When that happened, Susan was there, ready to step in and handle situations that I could not. Susan is a great listener, has fabulous ideas, and is able to keep everything calm and under control. She is not afraid to roll up her sleeves to get things done.”

– Katy McMurray, San Francisco

“When we bought our house, we knew we wanted to remodel the 50-year old kitchen. We went to a number of stores, watched a lot of shows, and got ideas, but we didn’t know how to bring it all together. Susan helped bring our scrambled thoughts into a cohesive design for a functional kitchen. We love our kitchen so much that Susan is helping us with our bathroom remodel as well!”

– Russell Wong and Wiana Quan, San Francisco

“When we started on our remodel, I wasn’t sure what I wanted the finished product to look like. But I was very certain that I wanted to focus on form and function, without compromising one for the other. You always kept that in mind during the design and planning stages, and now the finished product reflects just what I asked for. Form and function – you really provided that, just as requested! ”
