Testimonials & Recommendations

I have worked with Gretchen in New York for many years. She is a true professional and friend. New York’s loss is Tennessee’s gain! She gives you that extra touch many designers just don’t have. I am so proud to watch her business grow from afar. I wish many years of success ahead for her. Come meet her and I’m sure you will feel the same as I do.

You are beautiful inside and out and so incredibly talented Gretchen!


Gretchen does indeed have a great eye and a wonderful ear!! Her sense of color and its effects are finely honed. When we get stumped on a project or looking for ideas to start, we call her. Sometimes it’s a tweak, and sometimes it’s just been encouragement. But it’s always wonderful to know she’s there. When she says all levels of attention and care, she means it! I’ve seen her larger projects and they’re awesome as well!

Gretchen always does a beautiful job! She listens and pays attention to the details! She has helped us over the years with different projects and with 2 large remodel projects at our home and river house. We are very grateful for her and her expertise!

The team at Ruvo Designs were a dream. They truly listened and seemed to always understand the vision for our new home. Along the way, they would offer many ideas for us to consider. Some may have stretched our initial thoughts, but they were always a willing partner as we mutually agreed on concepts and ideas, before moving forward. The end result is a beautiful home and a very happy client. We do not hesitate, recommending Ruvo Designs to everyone impressed by what we truly accomplished together!

Ruvo Designs has worked with us on several of our Nursing Home and Assisting Living projects. We have found their designs to be fitting for the type of project, appealing to our residents and staff, and cost-conscious. That is a rare combination and is probably the most important factor in our decision to do so many of our projects with them.

I have been a client of Gretchen for several years.  She and her team helped me with a remodel and refresh of our home.  She is an out of the box thinker and truly went above my expectations.  I would highly recommend Gretchen.

As a contractor, when it comes to Interior Designers, we find them to be disorganized and unable to operate within the time demands of our projects.  Gretchen and her team are the rare exceptions.  Not only are we impressed by the end product of their designs, we believe she and her team are some of the best at communicating their vision, working with us on potential alternatives, and organizing the information in a way that allows the work to proceed in a timely and organized manner.  I’d be happy to work with them on any project.
