About Guest Interiors
Guest Interiors is a full-service interior design firm. Owner Susan Guest, has the talent, training, education, and vision to make your project a success.
Susan thought she had her life all planned until, as she puts it, she was “bitten by the design bug.” She initially planned to pursue a music degree, but ended up with one in design after taking a design class on a whim. The rest, as they say, is history.
Warm and approachable, Susan has the ability to make a large, seemingly painful project fun. “My clients can have an entire new look without having to leave their homes,” she says.
After graduating magna cum laude from University of Mississippi in 1984, Susan’s continued commitment to excellence is reflected in her involvement in ASID (American Society of Interiors Designers) as 2013-14 President, NCIDQ certification, and receiving a residential design specialty award from the Carolinas chapter of ASID. Susan is proud to have her work featured in “Spectacular Homes of the Carolinas.” She is a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. Recently, Susan joined the Sustainable Furnishings Council and complete her Green Leader AP. Guest Interiors will now offer clients eco-friendly options along with our other fabulous products.
Her passion for others is evident in her community involvement including twenty years in the Hickory Choral Society, mentoring for Project Potential, Safe Harbor Rescue Mission, Humane Society of Catawba County, church, and civic organizations. The four loves of her life are her husband David and her three Italian greyhounds.
