"Susan Jenkins is absolutely amazing! She has such a skilled eye that shows talent, knowledge and passion for her craft. She knew exactly what I wanted in design and I am thrilled with the outcome. She is budget conscious and very attentive to her client's wishes. She is timely, accessible, responsive and detail oriented. She emulates the highest level of professionalism while maintaining an equal level of relatability.  Susan is a gem and it has been a privilege working with her. I highly recommend her for any and all projects in the design world. I call her a magician!"

"I reached out to Susan shortly after our offer was accepted on a home. We needed to paint most of the inside of the house, paint the cabinets, and refinish the floors, and I had no idea where to start! Not to mention we had about two weeks to select all of the colors before the work needed to start, and I was 9 months pregnant! Susan quickly jumped in, walked through our house with us, and put together paint boards to choose from. She worked with me as we went back and forth on paint and stain options that would work best to take the red tone out of a two-story stone fireplace and coordinating paint colors for the rest of the house. She thought of so many things I never would have considered and always had the big picture in mind for our home. She was truly a life-saver and I know we would not be as happy with the finished product without her. With her help we were able to add tons of value to our home with just paint and stain before we even moved in! I'm already planning to use Susan to design our living room. I can't recommend her enough and have already recommended her to friends!"

"I'm so thankful we partnered with Shelter + Sanctuary to transform our dated family room into an elegant living space. Susan made our update and remodel a pleasurable experience and not the painstaking chore we were anticipating. Adhering to our budget, she gave us excellent guidance on where to splurge and where to save. Her graceful sophistication combined perfectly with professionalism and the free spirited creativity of an artist made her an excellent fit for our design implementation. We are so grateful we found Shelter + Sanctuary!"
