About Spruce

Inspired Interior and Custom Design to Fit Your Lifestyle

What inspires you to get up, walk downstairs, and brew your cup of coffee? Why are you inspired by the world we live in? What makes you feel most comfortable in your home environment?

Each individual client is unique and is driven by their own “why.” My goal is for your home to reflect who you are, your purpose, and your style.

Frequently people tell me,

“I don’t know
what my style is”

My experience working with hundreds of unique individuals has developed my signature process that allows us to work together as a design team to identify the style, look, and colors that express your lifestyle.

Do you have a particular design in mind? Let me and my design team run with your idea and transfer your concept into your living space reality. Our time designing together is a valuable time used to create an authentic design that truly reflects the “real you.” Let’s talk about your design objectives and turn them into a beautiful and satisfying living space that reflects your taste and way of life to make your vision a reality!

Fiona Hughes

Designer

Fiona started her career at the Savoy Hotel Group in London working on all their design projects. After 2 years, she switched her focus to private residential design with an Interior Designer in Mayfair where she worked for several years until that designer opened a studio in Washington, D.C. She moved to the States to help the designer organize and run his business. She worked there for 30 years, with about 10 working with high end builders and developers in the Metro DC Region.

Fiona’s passions include her family, work and the non-profit foundations she has founded and runs in her free time. Fiona and her husband have three grown boys and have lived in Utah for five years. Fiona began working at Spruce when Jenn first opened the store in Midway.

She loves eclectic styled antiques and textures; incorporating old with new. No matter the style of the home, I design with a comfortable and welcoming feeling.

Susan Duncan

Susan moved to Utah and joined the Spruce Team in 2020. She brings a strong passion for the client experience, loves to work with color, and brings designs to life with her visual presentations.

Gladys is passionate about the outdoors and the inspiration that it brings from skiing, to kayaking, to camping and her love for dogs. She also loves to cook, and we can say she is a bit of a foodie.

Our History

When I decided to live and move my business to Midway, I decided to purchase a dilapidated historic home on 206 W. Main Street. An original Midway home, constructed in 1872, I had a vision for this quaint home that holds years of stories behind its many walls. I wanted to renew this historic home as a center stone gem of the community.

I peeled through layers of wallpaper, dating back to the 1940s. You could see the decorating trends going farther back into history as we took the old wallpaper off the walls. Intending to preserve as much of the historical significance and charm of our “new” home, we performed renovations, uncovering some of the original shiplap, and protected these elements into the final design. The construction team and I found historical artifacts and placed them in a display case in my studio. It’s like having a history museum of the house!
