Greenauer Design Group is a full service boutique design firm, headed by Melissa Greenauer. Committed to providing the client with individual attention wherever the project location, the talented and creative team at Greenauer Design Group has mastered the art of personalized design in hospitality, commercial and high end residential projects.

The Group’s interior projects are never any one style; they are a collaboration of ideas, styles and architectural detailing combined to create a unique look every time. Melissa brings passionate energy to each assignment and develops a personal relationship with each client and project. Her unique ability to translate a client’s personality and lifestyle through design provides them with a captivating, comfortable space.

Melissa has a talent in her ability to balance travel and design. Not only does she keep busy with projects in her resident home and main office in Vail, her projects have also taken her to New York City, London, Beirut, and Dubai

Always in tune with her surroundings, Melissa draws her inspiration from nature, cityscapes and far-off places. Multi-tasking is her forté. She loves to find one of a kind objects, that can set a room apart and allow the space to develop around it by adding textures, colors and scaled style.

Melissa began her career in landscape architecture and soon found her heart lay in interior architecture and design, with the understanding that interior spaces should connect to the exterior of the property.

“I developed an understanding of how lengthy the architectural process can be from first drawings to finished build and realized I preferred to work with a client once they have committed to a structure. Designing from the core walls in, is very gratifying and much more fun!”

With an innate entrepreneurial spirit and a love for interior architecture and design, Melissa opened her design firm in April 1998. Her background in Landscape Architecture and Interior Architecture gives her the appreciation and understanding of every element of the design process from concept to completion. Her determination to source products and style elements in the global marketplace has allowed Melissa the opportunity to work on top projects with clients around the world.
