Design Approach
My approach to interior design is patient and receptive. Some clients know exactly what they want and others are less sure and need more guidance through the project. Communication is key and essential to creating a successful experience. Have fun, let go of preconceived notions and enjoy the process.
Mission Statement
My passion for creating beautiful, sustainable and eco-friendly residential and commercial interiors lies within the marriage of old and new, art and science, interior and exterior, and the experiences they create between us and nature.
Design Philosophy
Clients hire an interior designer to take a space from ordinary to extraordinary! I consider design to be as much about function as it is about beauty. I believe in creating relationships, working collaboratively, environmental responsibility, customer service, quality products, and respecting budgets.

Bethlehem Lutheran Parsonage Bathroom

I want to give some love to Rhea Mader and her awesome business Tumbleweed Interiors! SheIMG_0815 masterminded the MUCH NEEDED bathroom overhaul at my church's parsonage (aka my parent's house!) and delivered much more than anyone could have asked for! I know it will be enjoyed by many more years of minister's families, but most importantly my mom has a handicap-equipped and SAFE place to bathe! That peace of mind means more to me than you will ever know, Rhea!!

Karla and Kendall Pihl

My husband and I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Rhea at Tumbleweed Interiors! We wanted to do some remodeling to our home, and once we started working with Rhea on one room, we knew we wanted to continue using her to help us with some other projects. Rhea was so easy to work with, and the changes that she helped us to make have made us feel like we have a new home! We would recommend her to family and friends alike. It’s great doing business with Tumbleweed Interiors!

J.O. Sundstrom Conference Center

Rhea understands the customer’s needs, wants and budget and making it work together for an excellent end product.  She worked extremely hard to meet our expectations and timelines, and was unwilling to accept less than satisfactory products from vendors.

Gina McFall – Kitchen Remodel

Rhea, you took care of everything that I didn’t do and I loved that.  It relieved the pressure on me to do it all.  It was AWESOME.  You are so personable, friendly, professional, and helpful – and I felt like you were in it to do the best job to please me.  You had many ideas, were flexible to changes and were doing it happily.  I sure didn’t know what I was doing.  I would recommend you 100%.

Brad and Gina Windholz – Fireplace Wall Built-Ins Design

We needed a professional to take on design, to offer options that we hadn’t thought of ourselves.  Rhea gives a very good first impression and is a good listener for what we wanted out of our project

Heim – Whole Home Remodel

We are greatly appreciative to Rhea and her vast knowledge as she assisted us following damage to our home caused by tornado. Rhea calmly led us through options available with consideration to budget, and listened attentively to our needs and dreams. We challenged her, and she creatively developed a house plan that incorporated necessary compromises, yet still included our visions.

Rhea provided options and encouraged us to look outside the box. She worked with the contractors, did not hold back guidance, and was there every step of the way from floor joists and lighting to paint color and decor. Even when we would throw in a different idea mid-stream, Rhea was professional and helped us realistically make allowances when possible. She even included a few of her own unique suggestions!

Our delight with her services continues to be experienced daily in our home. We have had many visitors who admire the beautiful changes in our home and often state that it looks as though it should be in a magazine. Upon the completion of the whole house project, we can honestly say, Rhea Mader took our house out of a chaotic storm and into the calm, welcoming environment of a home. Thank you, Rhea.
