Rentschler & Company Interior Design




Praise for Rentschler and Company

"Mary has helped us with three different homes in three very different places: West Tisbury, Washington, DC, and Atlanta. These were no small undertakings: Each involved additions, structural changes, and major reconfigurations of interior and exterior space. She approached every project freshly, with exquisite sensitivity to space, place, color, light and surroundings. Mary is a force of nature, but she devoted herself to learning how we lived, what we treasured, and how we proposed to live in the space. She has strong convictions, but is equally willing to listen, to learn, and to accommodate. The results have been spectacular, colorful, true to their settings, comfortable, and -- most surprising -- unique. We could not have done better."

"We have had Mary help us with the design and decorating of our single-style summer home, our 1865 farm house in Massachusetts, our daughter's historic Boston townhouse and her 1945 cottage in Texas. Mary had an extensive challenge in all places since each involved total gut rehabs. Every wall color, light fixture, tile, sink and appliance had to be selected. As you may have guessed, I could not recommend anyone more highly and also as a great person to know.

Each family lives differently in their home and Mary starts her designing around your lifestyle, not hers. Mary is a good listener and hears your concerns and stays with your concerns until the right choice of fabric, paint or furnishings is made and everyone is comfortable with the complex interrelationships. Of particular importance was her ability to work seamlessly with the various contractors and architects, often an acrimonious environment."

"Mary has a great eye and is extremely creative... she attends to every detail. She understood our needs and style perfectly and could anticipate our desired end result. Helping us to not only create the rooms we had hoped for but was an integral part of our team from the beginning of our project – helping us create our unique dream home. Her advice and recommendations were always "spot on" and we truly appreciated her resourcefulness and ability to find both common and unusual items. As we walk through our home, we always feels Mary’s presence here while still reflecting our own taste. Our renovation and construction was a daunting project. Mary persevered and endured and kept us focused and on task. We enjoyed working with her immensely as she is extremely personable and committed to the needs of her clients!"

"Mary brings sunshine into your home. Her positive attitude and bright personality enables her clients to express their desires with ease. Mary is extremely resourceful, available, accommodating and efficient under time pressures. Mary has a great eye for color and patterns that work together and always manages to add in that special item to spice up a room. She has a high level of knowledge with lighting, furniture and fabric suppliers. Her resources with reputable suppliers on Martha's Vineyard to get the work done is invaluable. She travels to Boston and New York regularly to bring the best options to her clients. Our newly renovated home on Martha's Vineyard is spectacular because of Mary's knowledge and guide from start to finish. She was our leader during our renovation project because we were not geographically close and able to watch over the work daily, and her talents were endless!"

"Mary Rentschler was involved from the very beginning of our recent home renovation project. She totally "got us" and our style. Mary and her design team created this beautiful and wonderfully inviting space for us. We love coming "home" to our Vineyard house. Mary is creative and intuitive and responsible and very reliable. We've done many renovations... This is the first time I wish we could do more. Thank you, Mary."

"What fun we had working with Mary. She is a great listener, has a terrific eye, and was able to understand exactly what we wanted, even when we didn't completely understand it ourselves! Mary helped us create a vineyard home that is a perfect haven for our family, and a great gathering place for our friends."
