My Design Philosophy...

I love it when I enter a finished room and it tells a story!  Your story!  When I am invited into a clients home, my challenge is to get to know how the family lives in their space, and how I can help the space function on the level of their needs.  I love creating a collected look that is a wonderful compilation of life’s journey, and reflects your passions and comfort.  I enjoy the challenge of repurposing your treasures and existing pieces, and adding a few new pieces, to create an inviting updated space. 

About my Design Services...

Throughout my career I have had the opportunity to work with textiles in both drapery and upholstered items.  I love working with color and using the subtle differences a shade can make to personalize your home.  Taking things out of context and reworking them to create something both beautiful and useful is exceptionally fulfilling.  During my career, I hosted a radio show designed to provide on air design inspiration and answers to design questions and problems; this experience taught me how aide my clients to articulate their design dreams, along with teaching me how to better visualize and verbalize design concepts.  As a designer with Walter E. Smithe I am able to utilize our vast vendor base to find the perfect item to create your exciting space.  I look forward to dreaming with you at our Glendale Heights store!  



"My husband and I have been working with Susan Walk since the summer of 2014.  In 3 separate instances she has bent over backwards for us and finding what we needed.  Susan makes things convenient by sending us pictures over email so we didn't need to make numerous trips to the store.  She even asked us if we wanted her to meet us at the Oakbrook store just to see a sample of a sofa.  Her service towards us has been top notch, and her design experience/suggestions has been priceless.  Thank you Susan.  We couldn't have put together our living room without you!"  Elizabeth and Chris T., Bloomingdale
