Hey everyone! I’d like to introduce you to the woman who heads up our Commercial Interiors department. She works on our projects that consist of Corporate Offices, Ophthalmologists, Obstetrics & Gynecology as well as numerous Doc In A Box locations. Sue Brown has been working in the Interior Design industry for over 30 years! While she and our director, Michele Brown, are not related by blood, they’ve certainly known each other long enough to be considered sisters.
What does a typical day look like for you?
Busy, just like everyone! My days at work are always different depending on what projects I’m working on. I live in an older home so have a lot…did I say a lot?...of home projects. There are usually a couple of art projects that are in some state of evolvement that consume daily time once started. So… yes, busy!
What’s your favorite piece of furniture you’ve ever owned?
A mirrored dresser from my grandparents. It’s beautiful, has a family history and even has a secret compartment! My favorite accessory is an antique French letterbox that my brother gave to me. Elegant and fun!
Favorite restaurant in Jacksonville?
River & Post, of course! Favorite restaurant out of Jacksonville is Blue Duck Tavern in Washington DC.
Favorite Holiday and why?
Thanksgiving…hands down. Being with family and friends, cooking, eating, sleeping and no stress. What more do you need from a Holiday?
Favorite aspect of the Interior Design business?
Interior design has two aspects that let you use both sides of your brain. There is the problem solving aspect in space planning, detailing drawings and figuring out how to build something. Then there is the aesthetic side of it with color, using awesome finish materials and lighting. It’s rewarding to see both sides of the process create a great project for our clients.
What was the last show you binged watched?
GOT Season 7. Getting ready for GOT Season 8.
What are some accomplishments that you are really proud of?
Having great relationships with long-term clients and people in the industry is an accomplishment that I’m proud of.
What fad did you never really understand?
Bedazzling…don’t get it!
