Bruce Norman Long

Bruce’s passion for interior design began at an early age. Fortunately, he was born into a family of antique and art collectors that nurtured his talent. He earned an architectural degree from Rhode Island School of Design, and went on to work for the renowned Mark Hampton. Bruce launched his interior design firm in 1993 and has built a devoted clientele by executing timeless designs that always remain classic and fresh.

Bruce listens to and understands your point of view, infuses it with his sense of style and wit, and gives you a very personalized experience delivering a home that speaks of you as an individual. His precise eye and careful editing ability allow him to produce work that is a valuable investment in your home. Bruce adheres to a design philosophy that if a room goes unused, he hasn’t done his job.

Bruce’s warmth, enthusiasm, and community spirit extend throughout his life, as he donates much of his time to charitable organizations. He serves on the Appleford Committee in Villanova, PA, as a trustee for the James A. Michener Art Museum in Doylestown, PA, is the past president and vice president of the Phillips’ Mill Community Association in New Hope, PA, and has participated in various designer show houses including the prestigious Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club Decorator Show House in New York City.


"Appropriateness is the foundation for the ultimate success of any well decorated room. Every room in a house should be used; if it goes unused I haven't done my job."
