“My saving grace was the great job you did preparing me and my furnishings for the move, and the cottage for my arrival. Although most other things did not go smoothly, everything you did worked out perfectly and I am appreciating your work every day! In addition, I have received compliments from the very first day from relatives and staff here, commenting on the colors and materials you chose, and the furniture arrangements you created. It all works beautifully! Thank you! Thank you! The transition has been challenging, but I like my little cottage so much that I know everything will be just fine when I figure out how things work in this community and get used to the area. Thank you so much for being such a great help to me over all these years and the many different projects, whether large or small. I have come to you when I had plans but didn’t know how to make it all work. You always came to my rescue, held my hand through the entire process and went out of your way to solve every problem until I had an outstanding results – a very happy and beautiful place to live and enjoy every time! I am so grateful for being able to rely on you and the knowledge and energy you put into your work. In addition, your attention to detail makes everything work beautifully – a home that is a pleasure to live in and experience! With sincere gratitude, many thanks and best wishes.”
“After seventeen years, we felt it was time to sit down and, in writing, express our sincere appreciation for all your work. You should certainly realize your value to us since we have put our trust in your knowledge of design on six houses. You have worked with us on three homes in Durango and our present home in California. Moreover, you totally decorated the homes at the lake in Havasu City, Arizona strictly from the floor plans.
We do not think we can fully list the many ideas, services, and products you have provided over the years. You have done everything from assisting us in building a new house to remodeling existing houses to simply decorating others. We have consulted with you on colors, wall coverings, floor coverings, window coverings, lighting, fans, bath and kitchen fixtures, appliances, furniture and accessories. You have been the steward of design on both the interior and exterior of our houses. Your vast resources have resulted in quality and tastefully designed homes.
We also wanted to thank Bob for the many hours he has spent delivering furniture, hanging window coverings and placing artwork on the walls.
Hopefully, in the next few years we will build on our Idaho Property, if not somewhere else, and we will need you again.”
Sincerely, Dennis and Mary Alice Foote
“Our excitement in deciding to build our new home was soon displaced by the realization of the many, many decisions that needed to be made. We needed help. After interviewing several interior designers, we chose Linda. We made a great choice. Her skills and knowledge were invaluable in turning our concepts into reality. We involved Linda in the design of our house as well as the interior decorating. Our style is a blend of southwestern and contemporary. She added her input and perspective to many architectural details such as the fireplace wall, kitchen, lighting, front door and room layouts vis-à-vis furniture options. Next came the selection of colors, flooring, bathroom tile, light fixtures, furniture and many others. Linda was a great help in making our dreams come true. Not only does she have a talent for building on ideas, but she let us know in a non-confrontational manner when she thought something was not going to work. She’s patient and she listens. Linda has an excellent knowledge of furniture, fabrics, lighting and local crafts people. Another quality we really appreciated is that she always brought us selections within our price range and was mindful of our budget. Although our decorating pace has slowed down, we still are relying on Linda’s talents as we finish up our home. We certainly recommend that you consider her for your decorating needs”.

After determining our price range and the general style we prefer, she expertly guided up effortlessly through sample books and catalogs as we zeroed in on exactly what we wanted. Linda knows her companies, knows their products, and knows hot o smoothly expedite a client’s selection process. Her professionalism reached so far as to provide us with updates on estimated shipping times and other arrangements. All in all working with Linda was a wonderful experience. We got what we wanted, and we recommend her without reservation.
