Banks Design Associates, LTD & Simply Home
6 Reviews
Founded by Linda Banks, ASID, Banks Design Associates provides residential clients with the unique combination of architecture and interior design services nationwide. Simply Home is our retail store and design center, and home base for both companies.

From the design of a whole house to a major renovation, or strictly the interior design of an existing home, Banks Design Associates believes that each family or individual client has a unique list of ideas and visions to contribute to the design of their project. As a result, no two projects look the same. Each solution is developed and tailored to the client's dreams. Creative design development, technical analysis and complete project follow-through make those dreams a reality.

Banks Design Associates has been honored with numerous awards for design excellence—we are often quoted and frequently published in national design magazines.

Linda Banks has been implementing her classic design style with great success since founding Banks Design Associates. BDA's architecture, decorating, and kitchen designs have been widely published, including features in Traditional Home, House Beautiful, Classic American Home, Renovation Style, and Maine Home+Design.

Linda's famous, tried-and-true design ideas and home furnishings are available through Simply Home, our 8,000 square foot, recently renovated design center and retail store. It is Maine's finest source for architecture, interior design services, and home furnishings.
