Linda L. Stimson, Inner Visions Interiors
The Boston Design Center welcomes the public to browse the boutiques and shop the trade showrooms with one of our 15 onsite Designer on Call professionals. The program includes a free one-hour consultation and full access to all the resources at the BDC.
Linda L. Stimson, owner of Inner Visions Interiors, has been creating lovely, comfortable homes for her clients around the Metro Boston area since 1983. She is seated in the lobby of the BDC and ready to greet the public on the first Tuesday of every month.
Based in Bedford, MA, Stimson, an Allied Member of ASID, specializes in residential design and is a true professional. She starts every project with an “exercise.”
“I ask a new client to gather ten pictures of rooms they like and a few they hate,” she explains. “Within ten minutes of reviewing those photos, the client and I are on the same page about their style, color and many other preferences.”
Understanding that there are often multiple components to a client’s design vision, Stimson works carefully and thoughtfully to create schemes that will combine them in a way that will result in easy, comfortable living spaces. Following the initial consultation, Stimson puts together a concept board for a complete floor plan with ideas for furniture placement, often using rugs to anchor the color scheme. While her trademark rooms feature a lush color palette and layered lighting plan, Stimson’s philosophy is rooted in collaboration. “My goal is to absorb my client’s style and return with a full plan that reflects their good taste.”
Stimson understands that many of her clients are looking for a home environment that is not only tastefully designed and beautiful, but is practical and easy to maintain. Tables topped with glass, metal, laminate or stone eliminate the need for coasters and have an elegant, modern appeal. Floor coverings and furniture are stain resistant and easy care.
Shop with one of our Designers on Call at the BDC Monday through Friday, 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
