“From inventory I have built for 30 years, first as an antiques dealer and avid collector to an interior designer, comes this capsule collection of decorative arts,” states Pribell.   “My work is guided by a passion for pattern, color and texture as well as extensive knowledge and experience with antiques and fine art.”

A graduate of Harvard College, Heidi Pribell’s celebrated and award winning career spans her work with antiques, having placed objects the The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the Rhode Island School of Design Museum and the Los Angeles County Museum at the behest of actor and collector Steve Martin to interior design work across the country.  Heidi Pribell Interiors counts Academy Award-winning Documentary Filmmaker Errol Morris among valued clients.

Heidi Pribell is distinguished in the industry for her astute recognition of home trends in the creation of spaces that appeal to property owners and the real estate market alike.  John Bigelow of Hammond Realty, Cambridge, MA gives Heidi Pribell credit with increasing a client’s Brattle Street area home selling price by one million dollars.  “Heidi has an intuitive sense for choosing furnishings and accessories that highlight the special architectural features of a home.”
