Testimonials

We have worked with Linda on several large projects. She has been wonderful to work with! She does a great job of incorporating our needs and preferences but also provides design advice to fit our home and family. Because my husband and I and both work, she went above and beyond to meet at times that were convenient for us. She's fantastic to work with, and I have recommended her to friends and family.

Linda is an exceptionally talented and knowledgeable designer. She has really put my mind at ease with her attention to detail and understanding of my attempts to express my design goals. I have used her on all my decorating projects-big and small - in my new house. Each project has been completed with results beyond my expectations and on budget! I would not consider another designer. She is also easy to reach and prompt to respond. I have recommended her to my family and friends. She is truly a joy to work with.

Linda wants her customers to be happy and goes the extra mile to make sure that they are. She always returns phone calls promptly and has a good eye for style and what pieces would fit in my house. Highly recommend.

Linda does the most amazing work- our home has never looked so perfect.
We have used many designers over the years in various residences, but no one
made our home look so chic and sophisticated but still comfortable for us.
We would not do another project without Linda Rickles Interiors.

Designing a Bespoke Headboard

 

We worked with our client to design a one-of-a-kind headboard that draws the eye upward and is architecturally in proportion to the room.

She wanted something soft and romantic, but with a cutting edge. 

We've incorporated the fabric into the dust ruffle for a continuous look that is simply luxurious.

3 Ways to Design your Bath for Aging in Place

Image

 

Here are a few tips for designing your bath for longevity and aging-in-place:

 

#1. Install a linear drain to eliminate a curb and elevate the design of any bathroom. Water is drained more efficiently and hygienically using this method, and multiple shower heads can be accommodated. This design is specifically beneficial for use with wheelchairs and walkers. 

 

#2. Install grab bars to prevent falls. Grab bars are another tool that can help individuals maintain stability. New styles are developed continually so they do not look institutional. 

 

#3. Install higher toilets for greater comfort, and relief to your knees. "Comfort Toilets" feature bowls that are a few inches higher than the average, at 17 to 19 inches high. The increased height can be a great benefit to the elderly, taller individuals, or those with mobility issues.

3 Ways to Add Comfort to your Bedroom

Image

 

Did you know that the average human being spends about 227,760 hours in bed? That’s about 26 years, in total, that you are spending in your bedroom. Today we are going to talk about how to add comfort to one of the most utilized and most underrated spaces in your home.

 

#1. Luxury Sheets

 

A good quality sheet set and comforter can make a world of difference when it comes to your bedroom. Get at least a 400 count for sheets. They will launder beautifully and be soft to the touch.

 

#2. A Comfortable Seating Area

You never know when you’ll have company in the bedroom ;) 

Place a small loveseat or sofa, plush pillows, and a small side table for your guest to set down their drink. Even if it is just for yourself, it adds another dimension to the bedroom, to read, watch TV, or just meditate.

#3. Lighting

There are three kinds of lighting that matter when it comes to your bedroom: Mood Lighting, Task Lighting, and Overhead Lighting!

Mood lighting creates romance. Use side lamps on a low-level of light or candlelight. Task lighting will allow you to read in bed, or perform other tasks. Overhead lighting creates general illumination for the room. A chandelier is particularly romantic in a bedroom to replace any can lights. Make sure that all of your bulbs are the same, warm or cool light!

 

A Pop of Color in a Sea of Neutrals...

Image

I absolutely loved working on this project. The client was a young family with two small children and a dog. I

If you have young kids or animals then you will appreciate knowing that we used pet and child-friendly performance fabrics!

We've thrown in a few pops of color among a sea of neutrals.

Why is this important?

Because it makes the area far more interesting with a neutral background.

With a few accessory changes, you can get a totally different look!

Adding complexity from the layering of colors and fabrics makes it rich, youthful, and inviting.

How to Add Luxury To Your Bath Renovation

Image

Today, I want to reflect on one of my top-three favorite bath renovations of 2020. As people are spending more time in their homes, clients are reaching out because they desire more comfort, function, and beauty out of the spaces that they use everyday. 

Let's talk about Luxury. Luxury is a feeling - it is an experience. Think about the last time you experienced luxury. It can be hard to pinpoint exactly where that feeling came from. Perhaps it was the heated floors, the warm towels, or the soft lighting. Or maybe it was the look in someone's eyes as they gazed upon your spectacular new room. Bringing luxury to a space is an art and a science. 

Here are a few things we did to add luxury to this space:

  • Marble: We used light colored marble for the vanity, floors, and shower. The chic color and glossy surface gave the room a cohesive look, attracting light and making it feel more open

 

  • Modern Hardware: We selected modern pulls in a champagne hue, an accent that you can see repeated in the mirror, the seating, and the faucet. This glimmer of champagne enhances the feeling of luxury. 

 

  • Lighting: Never underestimate the power of a good light fixture. If you look above the main vanity, we've selected something very unique, with just enough sparkle to make you feel like you are at your favorite spa or luxury hotel.

I've been so fortunate to hear from these clients on a regular basis. They have been so happy with this project and it has deeply enhanced their level of comfort. As with all of my projects, my clients’ satisfaction always comes first. 

Our Renovated Loft

Image

I was thrilled to start working on a project with a woman who was recently divorced. She sold her 6-bedroom home in the suburbs and transitioned into a newly renovated loft in Buckhead. Cheers to a fresh start and a new phase of her life!

 

Loft spaces are intimidating to many, but here are a few ideas that you can use to make your loft-space as comfortable as possible. 

 

  1. This room has a lot of natural light, and managing that light is a big job. You cannot see this from the rendering, but the client and I added custom window treatments for comfort, privacy, and light control. 
  2. The high ceilings, and original metal and exposed brick felt stark at first, so we used a variety of soft pinks, beiges and denim to soften the look and feel of the unit. This made it truly her own taste and space. We painted the brick, and added false beams to enhance the architectural detail. 
  3. We added hardwood and sub-flooring to the concrete floors to create a warmer, cozier look. These floors feel amazing!
  4. We added a shell chandelier and accessories - some newly acquired, and some from the client’s collections!

 

Loft spaces do not have to be difficult to design. Working with a trained professional Interior Designer certainly helps!

 

A Light Filled Foyer

Image

A foyer could be one of the most overlooked areas in a home. This welcoming foyer sets the tone for our client’s personal style. It is traditional with a modern twist.

Upon entering the two story foyer, you will notice an abundance of light that quietly fills the elegant space. We’ve placed a table for greater definition and to center the space, creating a focal point from the entryway and looking down from the top of the two-story staircase. 

Our fig leaf ferns and delicate orchid bring the outside subtly inside. The color scheme is meditative and reminiscent of skies and streams.

This foyer overlooks a traditional dining room with an abstract mural and sophisticated chandelier.

Remember, the foyer is the first place to welcome friends, old and new - and you never get a second chance to make a first impression!
