​​​​Meet Interior Designer and Owner Susan Templer

Owner and principal of Templer Interiors, interior designer Susan Templer specialises in all aspects of residential interiors, with particular emphasis on kitchen and bathroom renovations and new build projects.
After graduating from San Francisco State University with a BS in Business Management, Susan had a lengthy career in retail management, including five years as store manager for a large consumer electronics retailer in San Francisco.

When Susan purchased her first home, a DIY renovation reawakened her interest in interior design. She achieved a Certificate in Interior Design from Canada College, where she majored in Kitchen and Bathroom Design. That led to a design and sales job at a prominent, high end kitchen and bath showroom in San Francisco.

Interested in expanding beyond kitchens and bathrooms, and keen to provide a full service solution to her clients, Susan established Templer Interiors, her own independent design company.

After 12 successful years in San Francisco, including having her work published multiple times and an appearance on Home & Garden Television, Susan relocated to Auckland in 2009. She continues to run her interior design business, but now has a view of Rangitoto rather than the Golden Gate Bridge!
