“From the moment Sumner and I first discussed my design project, I was struck by her uncanny ability to listen and capture my ideas in an almost read-my-mind inspiration board and spot-on materials selection to create a coherent artistic vision. Her professionalism in adhering to the budget and attention to detail were readily apparent as she worked deftly with the general contractor across multiple time zones. She has truly transformed my rental property into a gracious, light-filled home, thereby adding significant value. I look forward to working with her on another project.”

“Sumner dreamed up a total image for our Bazaar: a theme, tagline and outstanding décor. Not only did she create a coherent overall vision, but she also executed it with elegance and élan. The ‘dazzle’ she imagined became the watchword for the entire event. We can’t wait to work with her again.”

“As a colleague of Sumner’s in the marketing team of a major French company for several years, she was always very exacting, focused on substance and form as well as passionate about brainstorming. She has so much style, putting her heart and soul into everything she undertakes. She is truly the most Parisian of Americans!”

“Having known Sumner for 20 years, she has always spoken of her passion for interior decorating - and now she has created her agency. She is not only bilingual but also bicultural, with a deep understanding of Anglo-Saxon and French cultures. This unique perspective is a great asset, key differentiator and clear competitive advantage.”

“Having worked with Sumner in finance in New York many years ago, I remember when she decided to move to France to follow her dream. She never let any obstacle get in her way and enjoys taking creative risks, with a natural eye for color and style. I’m not surprised at all she is succeeding in this exciting new venture.”
