Since co-founding Inarc in the early seventies and later Carr Design Group,  Sue Carr has played a crucial role in the evolution of Australian interior design. Navigating the early days when the career path was largely unheard of,  Sue has a far-reaching legacy, earning gold at the Interior Design Excellence Awards.

Sue Carr was also recognised for her leadership by the Financial Review’s Westpac ‘100 Women of Influence’ 2016 event.

Recently minted Member (AM) of the Order of Australia (General Division) for significant service to interior design, education and women in business Sue Carr – actually started off training as a scientist and landed almost by default, as an interior designer. 

Her scientific training has imparted a unique approach, somewhat analytical that she has for all her design projects.

As the Founding Principal of Carr Design, Sue shares with us her 50 years in the industry, the changes she has seen, and what she thinks makes a successful architecture and interior design business that has a timeless approach, and one that also fosters a strong connection with her clients.
