LINDA A. TOM, OWNER & PRINCIPAL DESIGNER OF LINATO DSGN, LLC. My journey into interior design started as a child. I was in loved with the old architecture of buildings in Los Angeles, the grand homes of Hancock Park, and Pasadena. And a student in elementary school drawing pictures of the California missions—then traveling to San Francisco for college sparked a love for details and how an architecture influences and creates a vision translate into the interiors.
I once was a DIY homeowner. I remodeled three personal homes, helped select finishes for a custom home in the Glendale Highlands and a family home in North Orange County. So, interior design was the natural step, was to take a certificate program at an accredited interior design program. The process leads me to complete the bachelor’s in interior design in 2000
As I pursued my love for the field of Interior Design, it was indeed a second career and educational pursuit for the last 18 years. My first love is in Elementary Education, as such, has influenced me to be an advocate for educating, training and guiding both my fellow co-workers, member of design and clients for the best process and practice as an Interior Designer.
I have been an ASID California Orange County member and involved in the pursuit of helping others connect and partner with fellow members. I have a passion to be inclusive and strive to join, engage and invite others to join our local chapter. Being part of a design association is connecting with your network of designers, industry partners and give us an opportunity to align with the value of interior. Design Impacts Lives and Design Matters.Interior design is my passion to help others find their vision and create a home reflection of the client’s personality, memories and giving each room a practical space for living their way. I look forward to meeting with you to create and design the space of your dreams.
