Meet the Team

Savvy Interiors began when Susan started tapping into her talent for interior design she likely inherited from her grandmother — a respected interior designer in Orange County. Susan adores design, between remodels of baths and kitchens. Susan will often shoot straight, she won't hold back on opinions and is incredibly decisive. She can work with you to identify your priorities, your budget, and how to maximize your space all with a slightly fun, playful attitude. She believes that remodeling should be fun and an adventure. The perspective she has gained working with her non profit has grounded her to marry function and form and maximize your project.

Jillian was born and raised in southern California, then moved to Chicago for about 7 years where she met her sweet husband, and dragged him all the way back to CA! She has a passion for interior design, a love for anything antique and a knack for refinishing vintage furniture. When she's not working you can find her doing yoga, rearranging my furniture for cardio or pretending to be a foodie on the weekends.
