My wife and I engaged Susie to remodel our oceanfront condo in North Wildwood. We wanted to improve the functionality while adding beauty. Susie was a godsend. Somehow, Susie checked the box on our entire wish list. She thinks outside the box and brought us many ideas and suggestions that we never considered.
Living three hours away from our condo, I was concerned with project management and contractor quality. Susie solved that by bringing high quality professionals to us. Her contractor, cabinet dealer and appliance retailer have been great. It is so important to deal with reputable people when service is needed.
We are enjoying our beautiful condo and look forward to retiring here. I am sincerely grateful for Susie’s efforts, professionalism and patience. I highly recommend her for any project.
Susie managed my condo renovation project from end to end, transforming a typical ‘shore condo’ into a modern, sophisticated space. She goes well beyond furniture and fabrics to designing a fantastic Italian-tiled build out wall for a beautiful new fireplace and TV. My kitchen is completely transformed by her vision. She advised me on everything from drapes and rugs to a gorgeous living room furniture suite. Susie managed the whole project beautifully and I highly recommend her project management and interior design work.

We are now on our 2nd project with By The Sea, and Susie. We started with a remodel of our bedroom and master bath, and now we are onto the living area. She has been super professional and made our bedroom an oasis that just feels wonderful. Susie broke it all down for us and made our journey completely seamless. She didn’t push her style on us or steer us toward super expensive decor that was not necessary. The end result was simply OUR style with her professional vision. She is exactly what you want in at pro. All this, and she is extremely patient! Re-decorating a space can be daunting. We had been putting it off because we didn’t think we could tackle it all without being completely overwhelmed. She recognized that and took it slow enough that we could create a space that was just perfect for us! Thank you Susie : )
Owner Susie is fabulous. She decorated two homes for me in Ocean City, New Jersey. I was thrilled to death with every aspect of her work. I love décor as well as the fact that everything happened on time and at the price I was quoted. She is so creative! I love my back yard oasis! She is hands on and her attention to detail is even more intense then my own! I was so thrilled I then had her do my new Condo in Center City Philadelphia. she absolutely nailed the vibe I wanted there. I cant wait to have her do my Florida home!
Susie is amazing! I hired her to help me pick fixtures, paint, and the overall look of my 100+ year old row home in Philadelphia. The house had previously been condemned by the city, so this was a complete renovation from top to bottom. I had a family member (who had recommended her to me) managing the project with me, and Susie handled the all the personalities involved with complete and total grace. She picked the most beautiful gray and white paint scheme for the home, which garners a ton of compliments and looks perfect with my existing furniture and textiles. For the bathroom and kitchen she chose oil-rubbed bronze fixtures to match the age of the home. But my favorite piece is definitely the dining room chandelier. It’s wonderful vine structure is something I never could have found on my own and quickly became one of my favorite features of my home!
Susie from By the Sea Home Decor was wonderful to work with. We wanted to update our shore home with new colors through out, new counter tops and appliances in the kitchen, all new window decor, update bathrooms with vanities , lighting, and faucets. Plus decor items and bedding ensembles through out. Susie handled the contractors, providing samples and helped guide us through the whole remodel. Since we work full-time and not located in the immediate area, Susie would leave ample samples to choose from and took us thru one step at a time. The whole project was thought to be over whelming but not when Susie was in charge. The whole home flowed and was coordinated through out. She met all our expectations and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend her services without hesitation.
I hired Susie from By the Sea Home Décor to renovate my kitchen, dining area and living room at my NJ beach condo. Susie met with me to understand my style and budget and worked with me to achieve the exact “look” and “feel” I wanted. She shopped carefully for materials, getting great buys for me, and used contractors that were honest and meticulous in their work. She also continually checked in on the work and sent me regular updates. I was so pleased that I am hiring her again for bathroom and bedroom renovations!
We worked with By the Sea Home Decor when we built our retirement home in Longport, NJ. She always did the research and gave us choices that we always loved including tile, lighting, furnishings, window treatments, and wall colors. We walk into our home and just are always amazed at how it makes us feel. She is a pleasure to work with and is very mindful of staying in budget. I would and do recommend her whenever I can.
Susie is a very talented interior designer who is working with me on the color palette for my home. As a design professional myself, I know to go to the experts when needing a specialized service. Her customer service is outstanding. Her ability to work with others and respect their opinions is exceptional, and her results are spectacular. I highly recommend her.

I stumbled upon Susie’s website and immediately called her. We met last weekend at my beach house and WOW! She gave me so many wonderful ideas from wainscoting to paint colors to hardwood for my floors to changing out my lighting and ceiling fans. Everything she suggested I absolutely loved! Not only is she very nice to work with, she is very educated in the products she recommends.

We met Susie during the construction of our dream home in Longport. She was an absolute delight to work with. She interviews her clients and learns all of their wants and desires and runs with it. Most importantly though, she stays on budget. She made our home beautiful. Her selections are timeless and the selection process was easy and fun for us because she took the guess work out of it. When we walk into our home, each and everytime it takes our breath away.

Working with Susie was an absolute pleasure. She totally transformed our home. She kept us on time, on budget, and focused. We never could have done our project without her.

When we first saw Susie’s work we thought we might want to work with her while building our new home in Ocean City….after meeting with her we knew we did not have to look any further. The entire experience from kitchen and bath designs to furnishings and accessories was made easy and enjoyable….far less stressful than past experiences. Susie’s knowledge and access to unique material’s and furnishing combined with her enthusiasm and accessibility made building our dream home exciting and fun.

“We had the pleasure and good fortune to meet Susie DiGironimo while we were in the early stages of building a new home in Ocean City. We were overwhelmed with all the decisions we had to make concerning kitchen and bath designs as well as floor and wall coverings, electrical plans and other phases of construction design. Susie stepped in with all of her knowledge and experience in this phase of work and assisted us in making these decisions, thereby transforming a stressful time into a very enjoyable one. We told her we wanted a summer cottage look and she was able to incorporate this feeling into every nook and cranny of the house even before we put one stick of furniture in it! Once the construction phase was completed we asked Susie to help us with her interior decorating skills so that our summer cottage would be complete. Once again Susie took charge and gave us a presentation of colors, furniture and window treatments which we absolutely loved and our home turned out to be everything we imagined and more.
Susie really “listens” to her clients and does her best to make their desires a reality. She is very attentive, following up on every last detail to complete the job to great satisfaction. Most of all, Susie is very warm and enthusiastic about her work and proud of what she accomplishes and how happy she makes her clients. We can attest to that…..we have a beautiful new home and we have made a new friend!”

We started from scratch with this home, and it turned out beautiful! We went with a tropical feel for the home. Her expertise in choosing just the right colors, furniture and accessories really made it Spectacular. I am also working with Susie on a renovation project on a rental Home. The house is 14 years old and was in need of a makeover. She has truly made this experience a pleasure as renovation projects are usually very stressful. She has dealt with the coordination of all the contractors, chosen which areas needed renovations, like the kitchen and bathrooms, She has made the designs and selections; chosen new furniture, window treatment, accessories, etc. I know I couldn’t have done this project without her. I would definitely recommend Susie DiGironimo for any Home Improvement and Decorating Projects you may have.”
