Susie Hardy is the founder and principal of Everyday Living Design. A graduate of George Brown College, Susie brings more than 15 years’ experience to residential and small commercial design projects. Her engaging personality and passion for the industry make her a valued and well-respected professional within the field. She believes your home should be a reflection of who you are, and be versatile enough to grow with you. Function, beauty and harmony are touchstones in her work, which combines traditional and modern elements.

Susie transitioned from a career in hospitality in 2005 to launch Everyday Living Design. She is attuned to the positive impact beautifully designed, inviting interiors can have on daily family life and the benefits of efficient and welcoming workplaces for both employees and their clients. Susie excels at nurturing client relationships. The clear and efficient systems she devised for ELD ensure a smooth low-stress design process. The firm has completed projects throughout Canada, the US and Central America. On a personal note, Susie’s appearances on HGTV’s “Superstar Challenge” and “Canada AM” are a testament to her dynamic personality and enthusiasm for all things design. When she isn’t running between job sites, Susie can be found entertaining and soaking up the sun with her husband and two children, Elliott and Avery, at their family cottage.
