A boutique design practice based in Austin, Texas, GREER is an interior design studio focused on creating timeless residences. GREER’s signature is an architectural and holistic approach to design, where every detail is meticulously executed, the result being stunning rooms and spaces. Their residential work represents a range of client aesthetics and tastes; what they all share is a timeless and classic elegance.
Since opening Greer Interior Design, Jennifer Greer Hartmann has collaborated closely with her clients to achieve a unique balance of classically modern interiors. Known for not having one particular style, she believes that interiors should reflect the surrounding architecture and more importantly, the people living in them.
Though Jennifer’s focus has primarily been residential work, she has also designed restaurants and corporate interiors, in addition to custom furniture pieces for many of her clients. Priding herself for never having had an unhappy client, Jennifer frequently works with her clients on multiple residences, and enjoys partnering with other design professionals and disciplines to meet the needs of various projects.
Jennifer has been a designer for over ten years and obtained her degree in Interior Design at The School of Visual Arts in New York City, where she was influenced by the culturally rich environment of urban living. She focused on learning much about architecture, the arts, and antiques before moving to Chicago to work with the highly respected design team of Gary Lee Partners. In the six years that she was there, she became an associate and served as a senior designer and project manager in their Residential Studio. This experience gave her the benefit of working on many high-profile projects within a large multi-practice firm where adherence to budget and schedule are as valued as design in measuring project success.
Lindsay Granfield Maki believes that designing someone’s home is a unique and personal process. She is known for both the quality of her work and the very highest standards of professional integrity and service. She and Jennifer have collaborated professionally for over eight years.
Lindsay’s work is best characterized by the nature of her process rather than a particular architectural style. While her client’s needs and preferences frame the entire project, the project is approached with her philosophy that the best architecture is designed from with-in, resulting in an aesthetic that is warm, intimate, classically proportioned, well- detailed and with a materiality that is inspired by each project’s unique nature, site, and context.
Lindsay has been practicing Architecture and Interiors for over ten years and received her Bachelor’s and Master’s of Architecture from Tulane University in New Orleans. Following years of practice in Washington DC, she moved to Chicago and joined the award-winning firms of Searl and Associates and Gary Lee Partners. As an Associate and director, she led the design and execution of both residential and boutique corporate projects. Lindsay’s on-going relationship and commission’s with the Austonian’s development team are a good testament to her service and design, as well as her range of experience in both commercial and residential work.
Lindsay is very passionate and proud of her philanthropic work. While in Chicago, she founded the not-for profit, Civic Blueprint. In addition to her private commissions, she is currently the acting director of Designs for Dignity in San Francisco.
