Our next bInspired designer is Atlantan Suzanne Kasler. You can find her lovely book, Suzanne Kasler: Inspired Interiors, if you want an in-depth look at her comfortable, French/Continental style. I particularly appreciate that she rejects over-designed, fussy elements, which allows the architecture of the room and the furniture to take center stage.

A few of her inspirations:

Paris: “To me, it is the most beautiful and inspiring place in the world.”

Eiffel Tower: “Metal, wire, crystal, paper, silver, porcelain… you name it…”


Note the antlers on the wall. Faux taxidermy is very hot right now. Jason Champion and Jen Guerin used it (in a very different way than Suzanne Kasler here) in the first episode of Design Star this year. What’s your take?

I love the neatly stacked books on the dining table. Not practical, but beautiful and symetrically soothing.
