Our Story


Founded in 1984,  Banks Design Associates, LTD, provides residential clients with the unique combination of architecture and interior design services nationwide.

From the design of a whole house to a major renovation, or strictly the interior design of an existing home, BDA believes that each family or individual client has a unique "wish list" of ideas and visions to contribute to the design of their project. As a result no two projects look the same. Each solution is developed and tailored to the client's dreams.  Creative design development, technical analysis and complete project follow-through make those dreams a reality.

Banks Design Associates  has been honored with numerous awards for design excellence; we are often quoted and frequently published in national design magazines.

Proprietor Linda Banks, has been implementing her classic design style with great success since founding Banks Design Associates, LTD.  BDA's architecture, decorating, and kitchen designs have been widely published, including features in; TRADITIONAL HOME, HOUSE BEAUTIFUL, CLASSIC AMERICAN HOME, RENOVATION STYLE & MAINE HOME + DESIGN. Linda's famous, tried-and-true design ideas and home furnishings are available through  SIMPLY HOME, our 8,000 sq.ft. recently renovated design center and retail store.
