Linda Curtis knows that interior design can be an intense process that involves a lot of investment. That’s why a 10-year veteran of Norris Furniture & Interiors ensures her clients have a fun and relaxing experience as she helps them transform their house into a home that is functional yet beautiful and timeless.

The New Jersey native moved to Bonita Springs in 1994 from Northern California. After being a stay-at-home mom for 10 years, she went back to school to become an interior designer. She proudly holds ASID certification from the American Society of Interior Designers.

Tell us a little about your first project.

This is a new construction, whole house project in Naples with a budget of around $80,000. The client and I had a great time and it never seemed like work. We chose light blue and light green and mixed some navy and white furniture. awesome. I am very happy and can hardly wait for my next big project.

How about a challenging project?

The most challenging project is when the wife wants one thing and the husband wants another, so I help them find the delicate balance.

What is your favorite project?

I like that clients are open to my suggestions and willing to challenge the envelope a little. A late favorite transitional look that uses lots of white, silver, and gray, clean and fresh, but with definite sparkle and WOW. I designed the curtains and selected all the furniture, artwork, lighting, linens, rugs and accessories. everything. The result is a beautiful home that will stand the test of time.

Tell us three things you think are must-haves in a great room/family room where people gather.

A deep and comfortable sofa for chatting or watching a game or movie. There are food and drink tables everywhere. An area rug pulls the entire space together, creating a sense of intimacy. The heart of the home is often the gathering space, so the most durable and beautiful items are placed there for everyone to enjoy.

In the spacious main living area, interior designer Linda Curtis has created two comfortable, harmonious lounge areas with two identical full-size sofas. The office is functional and functional, yet still sophisticated, a brief departure from the established luxury of the rest of the home. Bright shades of pure white and white create a charming setting in the master bedroom suite. The outdoor living area features a high-contrast colour scheme with crisp white fabrics and neutral marble floors paired with dark finishes.

For clients new to Southwest Florida, what do you find surprising to many of them about having a home here?

I think it’s always surprising that newcomers have become so active in the field. Golf, pickle balls, parties, you name it – life in Southwest Florida is richer because everyone comes here to relax and enjoy the good life.

Describe the perfect client.

My perfect client has a lively personality and knows what they like. They are direct and can make decisions without worrying that they might regret it later. They also want everything: curtains, lighting, furniture, rugs, art and accessories, and feature walls. That said, I treat all my clients like my favorite clients because they are!

Do you have design troubles?

My main design annoyance is when a client tries to tie an old thing in a new home and reduce the design to that object, not the other way around. I’m trying to explain that our designs need to last 10 years or more, and this project may not be the best inspiration. Of course, if it was an heirloom, we would definitely make a prominent space for it. That’s not the same.

Retrofit or start from scratch? Do you have a preference? Which do you prefer?

I’ve been lucky enough to do more new builds, but our remodel is just as gorgeous as the new build. I work from floor plans, so whether the house is brand new or remodeled, it’s always a new space for me.

Any words of wisdom for a young man who thinks he wants to be an interior designer?

Know who your customers are. Read, research and observe designs from around the world. Bold and creative. Friendly and understanding. This is a great field!

If you don’t, what do you think you will do?

If I wasn’t into design, I would wish I had made the decision to enter the design world. ¦
