Gretchen Reinheimer brings an added dimension to her interior design services. Her trained eye combines the practical with the esthetic and reflects architectural skill and sensitivity to designing space with purpose.
She’s an avid listener, probing and exploring with passion and dedication, resulting in a distinct and unique vision for each project. Never complacent, Gretchen inspires her collaborating partners, whether architects, contractors or tradesmen to reach higher and deliver first rate work.
She is a connector and builder, committed to developing long term relationships with her clients and her industry partners. As the integral link between architect and general contractor, Gretchen probes, examines, challenges and even tests the boundaries. Her enthusiasm and passion know no bounds as she strives for extraordinary design statements. Gretchen is a visionary. She can see the finished product, long before the project even starts, and can guide each step of the process effortlessly and with purpose.
Clients feel comfortable knowing that Gretchen has their best interest at heart.
Respectful of their pocketbook, Gretchen listens carefully to their wishes and dreams, sensitively creating a budget that achieves their objectives without sacrificing the integrity and quality of the project.
It’s not unusual for Gretchen’s clients to hire her for successive projects. She proudly will describe how one small bathroom or kitchen renovation evolved into a series of projects that has spanned years of successful collaborations with her clients. Or, a client who had initially hired her to design his office space was so excited with the results, that he encouraged Gretchen to translate her commercial design skills to the residential side, engaging her to design their new home.
Gretchen prides herself as the consummate design professional, making sure to reflect each client’s sentiments. She encourages them to share their thoughts and concerns, and to allow their collective voices to be heard. Gretchen emphasizes that her clients should never be afraid to offer their preferences, whether it’s regarding the architectural design and structure; or the right color, furnishings and finishing touches. It’s these small details that elevate the project to a higher level of excellence. Gretchen refers to these as “the jewels” as they reflect the distinct look of the project: the lighting, fabrics and decorative accessories, to name a few. She inspires her clients to push harder, probe further, even if they get hung up on the most minute detail, like a drawer pull. There is no silly comment or stupid question.
Gretchen's childhood reflected a treasured existence, growing up in a family where parents encouraged their children to follow their dreams. This resulted in stretching her imagination, reaching further and finding passion in everything. Gretchen has taken that enthusiastic spirit and transferred it into her projects. With patience and resolve, Gretchen has explored unchartered territories, looking for the unique find.
Whatever the style, Gretchen approaches each project with expertise deeply rooted in classic architectural design. She always stresses the importance of form and function, making sure there is a unified and consistent flow throughout the space. Her designs have staying power and longevity, leaving a distinct and indelible mark on the design world.
