Linda's ability to mesh styles together effortlessly is what makes Linda still one of my favorite designers.
It was 2004, when I was just learning the interior design business and was working at a full service interior design and furniture store,when Linda came in, in need of assistance for The
Coastal Living Cottage Of The Year.I was the lucky one that got to assist her through the process of ordering furniture and picking fabric for the various pieces that were going into the cottage.She was so friendly, and down to earth and very receptive to my ideas! I thought "wow" Linda Woodrum really likes what I am suggesting.Linda was in and out of the store for a few months, where I would ALWAYS strike up some engaging conversation with her so i could pick her brain, but I had an ulterior motive, I wanted to be her apprentice...
I am pretty bold and not easily intimidated, so at the end of our brief working relationship I asked her if she was in need of any help,or if I could shadow her.She giggled,and was so humble, she didn't need any help at the time( but of course I new this because she had her partner, but hey, it doesn't hurt to ask) She gave me some valuable advise that I still use today.You can see the rest of the house at http://www.hgtv.com/
