About Us

Susan Deliss is principally a textiles dealer and designer, with her own range of textiles sold all over the world. Her interior decorating work is thoughtful, original, beautiful and comfortable. She is knowledgeable about the practical aspects of making a home and happy to roll up her sleeves to go on site, but don't expect her to produce computer drawings - as much as possible, Susan's work is considered and judged by eye. Susan excels at combining colour and pattern, artwork, furniture and textiles.

How would you describe your style?

My style involves combining colour, pattern and design to imbibe each home with a feeling of history and personality, unique to its owner. With a mix of antique and new textiles, creative combinations of wallpapers and paints, and globally-sourced furniture and objects – rarely from the usual channels, but instead from my travels and many contacts - I help my clients see the potential of a house in a new way, without them having to let go of their own or the house's story. No two of my interiors will ever look the same.

Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

Redecoration of an entire Georgian rectory in Suffolk. 6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 3 sitting rooms, kitchen, dining room and lots of hallways. I got a brief from the clients, then interpreted and distilled this in a way that would suit the house and the clients' lifestyle, but also give them something original without being modern or gimmicky. I designed the entire scheme for the house, sourcing wallpaper, curtain fabrics and paint colours for every surface. I found all of the tradesmen, project managed along with the client, and commissioned a lot of bespoke items for the house - antique linens from my stock were hand dyed to go with wallpaper; wallpapers were hand printed; walls were lined with hand printed fabric that I source in Paris; tiles were hand painted to fit the bathroom with Iznik patterns from Turkey.
