About Us

Our process is easy-going, collaborative and responsive. Smiling and laughing will definitely be involved. We put listening first. We believe that design is in the details. Everyone on our staff, from the principal designer to our showroom assistant, is detail-oriented. Not to mention relentlessly human and down-to-earth. Even though we are an award-winning firm with a national presence, there are no prima donnas here. That’s just not our style.

Garrison Hullinger – Principal & Owner

Garrison Hullinger is an interior designer with a passion for creating home environments that are as warm and beautiful as they are comfortable and functional. He believes in maximizing every space using colors and textures, preferring palettes inspired by the “amber waves of grain” landscapes of his Midwest childhood. Those early years of living far from traffic lights and skyscrapers also shaped his fascination with cities. Garrison enjoys incorporating urban textures – from masonry and stained glass to gates and grates – through fabrics, lighting, wall coverings and art. He brings a deep understanding of color, form and construction to all of the firm’s work, and insists that your style be faithfully yet surprisingly interpreted in every aspect of your project. Widely quoted within the industry, perhaps his greatest asset is the ability to instantly see the potential in any space, and to artfully facilitate every detail from start to finish.

Take a closer look at Garrison’s journey in becoming a successful small business owner, marketing expert and top notch interior designer.

GHID’s work continues to be featured in print and digital magazines including, Wall Street Journal, Embark Magazine, Portrait Of Portland, House Of Fifty + more!
