She’s a bundle of energy, a firecracker of a woman whose vitality and passion for life imbue every facet of her personality. For many years she has been recognised as one of Queensland’s leading interior designers whose work in and for the industry carries her signature style – always original, always interesting, always fascinating.
She is, of course, Suzie Beirne of Maison Jardin.
Suzie’s latest project is the fitting out of her new showroom/studio where paint colours and the latest fabrics rub shoulders with home accessories and artworks in a custom designed space which will allow her clients to select the finishes and fittings for their projects.
Speaking to one of Suzie’s past clients, whose home was featured in Queensland Homes magazine was an illuminating experience. “Suzie led me through the process of furnishing and decorating our new home” she said. “The choices were allways mine, and we would discuss pieces I needed, and she would suggest colours that would work. If I bought anything she would tell me whether it worked or not – I always felt that the decisions were mine, but the backup Suzie gave me was wonderful. I had so much fun, and I am so happy with the end result.”
Suzie’s expertise extends across the whole gamut of interior design and has been recognised by her peers. In 2002 she received an award from the Design Industry of Australia for her work in advancing the design industry and as a designer since 1978, she has made a significant contribution to the recognition and prestige of the industry here in Queensland.
