"Prior to Linda’s revised edition, my living/dining room was what I thought of as comfortable. However, over one evening and most of the next day, she transformed that one large room from what I later realized had been ‘technical guy utilitarian’ into two separate spaces - a warm and inviting sitting area and a flexible dining space. As Linda describes, she utilized existing furniture, art, etc. as well as ‘found’ art/objects. She could visualize potential spatial differences that just didn’t register with me. A couple of days after she left, I moved the sofa the 8” she had suggested before leaving which resulted in a big improvement in the feel of the sitting area. The new hasn’t worn off and every time I walk into Linda’s version of my living room, I like it more. I look forward to incorporating her ideas into the revisions I’ll make in my bath and future kitchen upgrades. Thanks again!"

This is an Albuquerque styling makeover in the minimalist New Mexico style, with earthy colors and patterns that reflect the beautiful landscape. The owner already had everything you see here, but his furnishings and art were boxed or stacked in a junk room or randomly spread about the house. We cleared out the clutter and donated unused items, re-purposed and rearranged the furniture, reclaimed beautiful unused rugs, and re-hung all the artwork to create this welcoming living room and dining area. The only new purchases were the two throw pillows. We're updating the bathroom and kitchen long-distance. Stay tuned
for finishing touches!
