The Sursy Studio is the creative and interior design arm of The Sursy, an experiential design and development group based in Denver, CO.

The Sursy Founder and Chief Creative Lauren Richardson is the lead interior designer and brand strategist behind the Studio. Having launched her career at an early-stage social media startup before spending years working for Fortune500 brands on the agency side in the experiential world, Richardson built credible marketing chops and expertise in brand building, creative strategy, design, and production.

The Sursy Studio offers niche interior design services catered specifically to short-term rental hosts. Our specialty is in curating an eclectic mix of thrifted and locally-sourced furnishings to create livable (and shoppable!) spaces perfect for the homeowners and also for their guests.

We optimize the properties we design – those that ultimately become part of our collective of shoppable homes – to be as income generating as possible by creating spaces that are aesthetically pleasing, filled with locally made furnishings and luxury amenities, and by implementing hosting best practices, all to achieve the highest customer experience possible and maximum earning potential for our clients.

The Sursy Studio also offers customized marketing and brand strategy consulting services aimed at supporting entrepreneurial creatives and small businesses with brand messaging, social media, marketing strategy, and beyond.
