Susan Simmons’ design philosophy focuses on the maximisation of a space’s potential whilst embracing the owner’s personal style. Sophistication and modern aesthetics blend to reveal an inviting soul.

From hand-made craft stalls at local markets to shipping containers; teaching art, styling advertising for print & TV, designing beautiful spaces – Susan’s vision has always combined design detail with flair. An ability to connect and collaborate allows dreams to become reality.

Named as one of Australia’s top designers by Australian House & Garden, The Essential Detail has completed projects from waterfront luxury to grand homes on acreage to commercial projects such as Vines Restaurant & Cellar Door at Hollydene Estate plus everything in between.

Unique.  Personal. Welcoming.
