Designer Spotlight: Suzanne Kasler

“Gracious words are like a honeycomb, sweetness to the soul and health to the body”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭16:24‬ ‭

I have been following Suzanne Kasler’s work for many years through shelter magazines like Architectural Digest, Traditional Home, Veranda and many others.  When her first design book “Inspired Interiors” was published, I didn’t waste any time buying a copy.  Suzanne brings Southern charm, European sensibility, and a respect for architectural details to her interiors.  She is known for her classically inspired rooms, pretty palettes, and comfortable spaces.  Her use of a neutral palette accented with hints of color creates warm spaces that are elegant yet inviting.  I know you will enjoy her beautiful rooms!

A classical design for this stunning dining room…a beautiful mix of gray and gold highlights…hand-painted wallpaper, elegant chandelier, and dressmaker details for the chairs’ linen slip covers.

A skirted round table and soft pink window treatments give a feminine touch to this dining space.

A large chandelier makes a statement in this dining space with its gorgeous fireplace.

In this neutral dining room, I love the settee used at the opposite end of the table.

The mix of chairs, the mirror, and the painted ceiling lends drama to this space.

A beautiful Rose Tarlowe library table and wood beams welcome guests into this house in the country.

Floral print window dressings mix beautifully with a striped club chair.

Creamy tones with pops of orange for a comfortably elegant living space

The beauty of the arched windows provide a wow factor for this formal living room!

This rustic but elegant family room is so perfect.

Since I love a soft shade of blue, I could easily live in this space.

Notice how Kasler uses neutrals to ground a space and then adds small doses of color.

What a beautiful mix of pattern and texture in this living area!

I love paneled libraries and this one is perfect…a rainy day, a cup of coffee, and a book would be bliss!

A sophisticated library with low-slung leather chairs and a dark Russian blue color inside the bookcases


 Isn’t this a gorgeous bedroom?  I love the blue chandelier printed on the curtains, bed hangings, and the chair!

This is not red but actually pink…still a very brave color for this bedroom!

What a gorgeous retreat!
What lady wouldn’t enjoy this lovely dressing table?

Thank you all for reading and I would love to know…do you prefer rooms that are neutral with a pop of color?  If so, tell me about it in the comments!

  1. Such beautiful rooms! I love the wood beams in the Rose Tarlowe Library. I dream of having a living room with beams like those. As to your question on color, I love color. However, I have found that over the years, I like to have my sofa be a neutral color. Therefore, I can easily change out the pillows to create a new look. With that being said, I am still a color person. I love lots of color in my pillows, florals, accessories, artwork, etc. I would love to have patterned window treatments, but because I know it is something that I will probably have for awhile, I tend to go neutral on my window treatments. If it was in the budget, I would have lavish patterned window treatments. Thanks for sharing all the beautiful inspiration! I hope that you have a wonderful Labor Day!!!

    Ya que pides opinión de preferencias te digo las mías. Me encantan los tonos neutros con toques de color como flores, algún adorno y cuadros preferentemente de colores suaves, para mí resultan muy agradables y relajantes. También me fascinan los ambientes rústicos como en la foto nº 11, acogedores y elegantes a la vez. Hay que tener en cuenta que mi estación del año preferida es el otoño/invierno.
    Todas las imágenes son muy elegantes, me encantan…
    Gracias por mostrar tanta belleza
    Since view preferences ask tell you mine. I love the neutral tones with splashes of color as flowers, some ornaments and pictures preferably soft colors, for me are very pleasant and relaxing. I was also fascinated by the rustic settings as in, cozy and elegant at the same time no picture 11. Keep in mind that my favorite season is autumn / winter.
    All images are very elegant, I love …
    Thank you for showing so much beauty

    • Hola Dolores, muchas gracias por compartir sus gustos de decoración conmigo. Me encanta los colores otoñales cálidos, así! Con la esperanza de que está recibiendo muy necesario descanso! Bendiciones, Pam

      Hello Dolores, thanks so much for sharing your decorating taste with me. I love the warm autumnal colors, as well! Hoping you are getting much needed rest! Blessings, Pam

  3. Dreamy Pam, especially those dining rooms! I want to update my dining room so badly, I would love to do it in all shades of whites…I’m pinning some of these to my dream dining room board, thank you!

    I do declare! There’s something in each one of these photos that speaks to me! I’m so bad about seeing photos of beautiful rooms and not paying attention to who the designer is, but I’ve heard (and read) about Suzanne’s work for years, so I know she’s got style that will last through the ages. Thanks for enlightening me on so much of her gorgeous work!

    I can hardly choose which one of these rooms I would choose for myself because I am crazy about all of them. I love simple elegance with the focus on lines and fabric and the blue….I’m in love with that shade. Some of the rooms with the neutral tones, highlighted with a mix of linen and silk are just so, so transforming that it makes one think that they could live an elegant yet simple life in them. Atmosphere and environment are as important inside as they are outside.

    Such wonderful images and so many different design styles. What I love is seeing so many different looks but every picture has either great architectural elements, a showstopper chandelier, bold color, or that one head-turning piece of furniture that pulls the room together. Beautiful. Thank you for the inspiration.
