Growing up, Lynn’s passion for design was influenced by her mother, who is an interior designer, and her grandfather, who was an artist and cloth designer for a prominent mill in Southeastern Massachusetts. With over 17 years in the interior design industry, Lynn has built her passion into a skillset. Since joining our Budget Blinds team, she has become known for her love of custom drapery projects, due to her love of pattern and textiles. It’s Lynn’s experience with full scale design projects though, that allows her to be a great asset for clients looking for that perfect window treatment to bring a whole room together.
