“Every great design begins with an even better story.” 

– Lorinda Mamo, designer.

Susan Benjamin has been decorating and designing film, television, and interiors for over 25 years. Her passion was ignited at age 9, when she and a friend won Honorable mention for their elaborate, hand built, and meticulously decorated dollhouse in the Village art show in Roslyn, Long Island.

“I bring my passion for literature and art to all my projects. When decorating for film, I create the character in a story. When decorating interiors for a client, I express their personality and lifestyle.
