Blue Artichoke Interiors is a passion of interior designer and painter, Susie Goldstein, who went back to school to get her interior design degree after having worked as a faux finisher, stencil artist and custom furniture painter since 1995.
Blue Artichoke Interiors offers furniture makeovers as part of an overall interior design plan or individually on it's own. Blue Artichoke Interiors' Susie Goldstein loves a bargain, so her designs love to incorporate giving new life to well-loved, quality furnishings. With her background as a faux painter, stencil artist, and custom furniture painter, Susie loves making her own sophisticated DIY projects for the spaces she creates and hunting down amazing vintage finds. These creative, vintage furniture makeovers add flair and personality to a space as only one of a kind pieces can.
Susie has been married to her husband Michael, a painting contractor, for over 25 years. Together they own and run Gold Standard Finishes, a commercial and residential painting and coatings company. They are the parents of two talented grown daughters. Susie and her husband live in Scottsdale with their two senior dogs and love living in Arizona after migrating from the Midwest to the Southwest in 1995.
Susie believe that happiness is a choice that one needs to make everyday. A positive outlook doesn't change the bumps in the road, it just makes the bumps a lot easier to bear.
