This week’s featured interior designer is San Francisco-based Tucker & Marks, Inc. Founded over 30 years ago, in 1986, by Suzanne Tucker and Timothy Marks. The studio creates personalized living environments, from family homes, mountain lodges and beach houses, to country villas and estates, and apartments in some of San Francisco’s most elegant addresses.
Santa Barbara native Suzanne graduated from UCLA with a BFA in Design and describes her style as “European in look but West Coast in scale”. She is known for her romantic approach to design that is both sumptuous and inviting at once. Timothy F. Marks, the Managing Principal and CFO of Tucker & Marks, is a native of Michigan who first began in design production and project management. He graduated from the University of Colorado with a B.A. in English and attended the Harvard School of Business Executive Education Program. Tim oversees the business side of things, while Suzanne handles the creative side, and says,
“I believe good design is not about trends or rules but about creating timeless beauty that enhances one’s daily life. It’s all about balance – color, form, proportion, scale, light, art, new and old.”
