About Bartram House

At Bartram House our mission is to create luxurious and timeless interiors that reflect the taste and lifestyle of our clientele. Bartram House is recognized for its ability to coordinate a project from concept to completion.

Through a consultative and concierge approach we offer our clientele a comprehensive service in creating interiors for the lifestyle they wish to live. From space planning and budgeting, to purchasing, delivery, and placement of decor, we fashion interiors with character. We accentuate a space with the elements of light, color, texture, and pattern that compliment all newly chosen decor, as well as family heirlooms. Our goal is to define our clients’ taste with certain distinction. At completion, our interiors leave a look that feels like it wasn’t just created, but simply… has always been in place.

With more than three decades of collective experience Bartram House has developed deep-rooted relationships with a panoply of firms in architecture, contract building, skilled craftwork, and the finest purveyors of decor and works of art. Bartram House works closely with each professional and in every phase of your project. We have the flexibility to adapt to any modification desired by contractor or client.

“Pulchrum Est”
(Beauty Is)

“It is difficult to define precisely what it is that makes a space ‘beautiful’ because there is no real defined list of aesthetics. But with Bartram House Interiors, somehow you just know that it is.”

Richard Hinkle

Richard brings to Bartram House a solid grounding in fashion and interiors, allowing him to contribute to projects from the architectural/engineering phase through landscaping. He is a direct descendent of John Bartram, an early American botanist, who is the Bartram House namesake. He worked in couture in New York City before following his passion for interior styles and decor.

“I don’t cookie cut. Everything is tailored completely to the client, and I take a concierge approach. I work with many different styles, and I like to do Classic with a twist that will still look fresh 10, 20 or 30 years on.”
