{not just another design blog...}

I, Sarah Cruze, am a thirty-year-old newlywed and Registered Interior Designer living in North Alabama. My design philosophy is to enjoy the simple pleasures in life, respect the interests/styles of others and appreciate good design when I see it. I believe that everyone's home can be uniquely their own. At Sarah Cruze Designs, I embrace the true essence of being resourceful, organized and living "simply." So why am I starting this blog you might wonder? No, it's not just another design blog.... My hope is that my musings will inspire others to create, explore and appreciate the simple pleasures in life, with me.

Living here for just a few months after getting married this year, I have noticed a few things about Huntsville. It is a beautiful town primarily populated with pragmatic people, namely engineers. Don't get me wrong, I have a unique love for engineers; my father is one, and I am married to one! But this town also needs more creative people. So, here I am.  After earning a dual BA degree in Art Education and Photography from the University of Kentucky (UK- GO CATS!) and an additional degree in Interior Design from Samford University, located in Birmingham, I am officially ready to kick off the start up of Sarah Cruze Designs.

My husband is my biggest fan of what I do. What is that you may ask?  Help clients make their house a "home" choosing all the right colors and designing with simplicity.... Help organize client's homes and de-clutter the non essentials....  Ready client's home to sell for more profit and in less time, AKA home staging....  Photographing special moments, precious faces and breathtaking landscapes. Additionally, I study pretty handwriting and am a self-taught calligrapher.... So if you want those wedding or birthday invitations to go out in style, allow me to hand-address them. Oh, and I design logos, too! If you are in need of any of my creative services, just call or write me:

This summer, I have the pleasure of coaching the Whitesburg Tide swim team, teaching swim lessons and managing the Whitesburg pool (yes, I was a collegiate swimmer at UK, too!). Interested in joining Whitesburg Pool or following the swim team results? Check out the Website:

I will still be available for design consultation appointments. I will post project "before and after" photos as they come. In the mean time, I'd love to tackle your design challenges or photograph your little darlings, or not-so-darlings ;-)... Just give me a call to set up an appointment! 256-655-3667 +
