Meet Susan Knof of KNOF design in South Beach
What a pleasure to understand the meaning of WELCOME TO MIAMI! Thank you to Voyage MIA for covering the story behind KNOF design. Link to full article above.
Susan, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
The path of where I have gotten to today is the story of a true journey! One that started in New York City and has taken me to Dubai, London, Baku, Bali, Moscow, Milan, Lisbon, Luanda, Sofia, and beyond.
The Interior Design Yearbook is specifically aimed at architects, interior designers, specifiers, contractors and key designers in the sector. The Interior Design Yearbook provides inspiring and original information on the trends of today and future innovations. It is a first class directory complimented by market predictions and expert analysis.
This year Creative Director, Susan Knof, contributed to the Yearbook discussing International Design.
Contributing designers have previously included Giorgio Armani, Tara Bernerd and Anouska Hempel, whose experience and insight into the interior design industry have proved invaluable to designers and suppliers alike.
Susan Knof summed up the project by saying ‘Above all, this penthouse scheme fulfils the client’s brief, providing a home with clever planning and an astute awareness of detail. But, more than that, the quality of the finishes, the balanced palette, the customised furnishings and an overriding commitment to considered designfuse together and culminate in a sophisticated and harmonious contemporary luxury penthouse.’ To read more about this project, see full details on the ARCHELLO website.

Layer upon layer of texture
One of the keys to pulling off a neutral design is using different textures. Think of a soft fluffy rug, paired with whitewashed wooden floors and a glossy table. You can take more risks when you’re narrowing down your colour scheme and allow the textures to create a strong visual impact. Textures are also great to avoid a neutral room from becoming too sterile. Using natural finishes such as wood and brick – either painted or left au naturel – can add warmth along with an industrial element. Interior designer Susan Knof of Knof Design shares “Neutrals for SS16 is all about the details and layers! Create an interesting composition with material variety; wool crepes, silk satin mix, floral lace, and delicate patterning. I would also include some subtle metallic embellishments, beaded detailing, exposed stitching, stud work patterning and free flowing tassels. To add interest I love getting inspired by the delicacy and details of the fashion world, Chloé is one of my all-time favourite fashion brands to look to.”
