Most interior decorators try to impose a preconceived style of their own on their clients. Linda Ashley works with her clients to help them discover their own personal style, then uses this style to fashion tasteful and memorable spaces that are certain to fit their lives. From traditional rooms accented by fine art and antiques to ultra-contemporary statements of cutting-edge artistry, Linda works hands-on to create strikingly beautiful results.
Since Linda Ashley Interiors accepts a limited number of projects, each client receives dedicated, individual attention directly from the designer. Linda Poletti Ashley guides every step of the process herself, from initial consultation and sketches until the final details have been mastered. Working from her office in West Palm Beach, Linda often spends years on a single project, exceeding her clients’ expectations and enriching their lifestyles with surroundings that inspire and impress.
Linda’s approach is influenced by her work as a design associate and project manager for noted firms Cullman & Kravis and Tui Pranich & Associates. With a background in design and textile science, she incorporates a refined use and knowledge of color, texture, pattern and proportion.
While studying interior design in London she immersed herself in contemporary as well as period European design and aesthetics, which are so often evident in her work. Linda’s designs encompass a wide variety of styles that draw from her passion and respect for the antiques and architecture of the past as well her appreciation and understanding of contemporary art and design.
Although Linda is best known for her work in South Florida and the Palm Beaches, she has completed projects for Fifth Avenue apartments in New York; a country estate in Greenwich, CT; a summer home in the Hamptons; a private residence in Nashville, TN; a pied-à-terre in Beverly Hills, CA; a golf retreat in Sea Island, GA; a ski chalet in Vail CO; and a family lodge in Lake Burton, GA. Beyond traditional residences, Linda has designed a luxury tour bus, consulted on a motor yacht restoration and styled a 250-guest wedding for a client’s daughter.
