A Conversation with Susan Wintersteen

Wouldn’t it be great to live down the street from your showroom, have a collaborative team environment with multiple designers working for you, and take summers off to focus on family time? Sounds like a fantasy for us designers, but it is reality for Susan Wintersteen of Savvy Interiors. 

In this episode, we talk about:

  • Which financial numbers are the most important to focus on in your business
  • What the Savvy Interiors design process looks like and why it’s beneficial
  • Outsourcing the tasks that don’t give you joy
  • Preparing for recessions and how to act quickly in response to a bad economy
  • Why she avoids doing design projects outside of her local area
  • Being innovative and trying new things
  • Susan’s nonprofit that designs healthy and functional rooms for children with cancer
  • Partnering with Make A Wish Foundation so designers can give back
