Arizona Second Home Market

Most of Design Directives’ new construction/remodeling work begins as referrals from architects with whom that have worked with for many years. These are generally large, multi-year projects, working with clients and architects from the ground up, starting at the floor-plan stage then moving into materials specifications, cabinet designs, and through to furnishing and art/accessory selection. Most of their clients in this category are from out-of-state and are building a winter/golf vacation home in Arizona.

Furnishings Projects

Most of their furnishings projects are referrals from realtors or existing clients. Generally they are people who have bought an existing home (often a vacation property) and require furniture, window coverings, and flooring. Sometimes minor renovations are required and they provide colorization and materials selection services.

Most of Design Directives’ clients’ homes are in North Scottsdale including the neighborhoods of Troon, Troon North, Estancia, Desert Highlands and Desert Mountain.

Scottsdale Customized Furniture

An integral part of many of Susie’s upscale design projects is her creation of one-of-a kind furniture. Susie feels that the most crucial part of her job is to ensure that each piece reflects her client’s personal style while embracing the spirit of the natural environment. She pays close attention to every detail, color, and texture, and the end result is a mastery of form and function, art and usability.
