“I have worked with many ASID designers. Linda Banks is outstanding due to her ability to comprehend the total project. As the project was built, she noted discrepancies between the architectural drawings and the on site structure. Her deep experience allowed her to offer excellent ideas and her inspiration solving difficult design issues was exceptional. She educated and helped me appreciate a cleaner, fresher style. Linda’s eye for color is superb. My husband adds that Linda is very skilled in listening to her clients to make sure they get just what they want.”

—Keith Granet | Granet & Associates, Management Consultants to the Design Industry, NYC/Santa Monica, CA
“I have worked with Linda on both the architectural and interior design plans for four homes of varying size, style and complexity. Her creativity, energy, enthusiasm and warmth are boundless. Additionally, she has the exceptional ability, and takes the time and interest, to read her client’s mind and hone in on their wishes, even when the client is not quite able to articulate them. This quality contributes to an end result pleasing to both the client and the professional.”
—Lauren Kratovil | Homeowner
“Linda is a very talented individual who has an excellent mentoring ability. As an intern at Simply Home, I have received wonderful opportunities to travel with the designers to see many of the projects they are working on, to sit in on client meetings, and to also help select fabrics. Linda wants me to observe and experience life as a designer. I am so thankful to Linda for exposing me to the real world of design, for allowing me to participate and learn in different environments. Because of her wonderful mentoring, my design abilities have been strengthened."
