What is comfortable luxury? Comfort is physical, emotional and also practical. Furnishings and decor should feel good to the body, look good to the eye and also serve a purpose. A room that doesn’t function as it’s intended, regardless of how beautiful it looks, is not comfortable. Luxury is when all the necessary comforts are combined with beauty and quality craftsmanship. We believe in the importance of fine detailing and quality materials that last.

Massachusetts Interior Decorator Linda Merrill believes in comfortable luxury.

Linda Merrill is an award-winning interior designer and decorator based on the South Shore of Massachusetts in a cottage, dubbed “Nook Cottage”, by the water. Summers spent on Cape Cod at her Grandparents house turned into a lifetime passion for the ocean and all things coastal living. Linda has spent her adult life living up and down the Massachusetts coast from Newburyport to Boston to Duxbury, Kingston and Sandwich on Cape Cod, never living more than a couple of miles from the water. A 12th generation New Englander, Linda’s design aesthetic is strongly influenced by the history of the region and the natural environment of the ocean.
