Behind the Boutique
Meet our Founder and Operating Owner, Linda Taylor. Linda consumed art and creativity in her soul from a young age, growing up near the sandy beaches in Southern California. As a child, she attended the school of Visual and Performing Arts in San Diego, CA, where she was first exposed to the world of theater, set design, and fine arts. This translated into her post-secondary education, beginning her studies as a theater set design major at West Liberty University, WV. After graduating with a degree in International Business, Linda enjoyed a fruitful and challenging career journey in multi-unit, regional level management, working her way up as a leader in retail executive operations and workforce solutions.
After battling and defeating Head and Neck Cancer three times over the span of eight years, Linda and her husband, Trevor, decided it was time for a slower pace and more inspiring environment that would assist Linda in her healing process as a Cancer survivor. Following God’s plan, they relocated from Las Vegas, NV to Albuquerque, NM in the summer of 2019. Once settled in Albuquerque, Linda deepened her journey as a furniture and décor artisan as she struggled to find local artistic furnishings that complimented her unique style and new home. And, what a blessing that struggle came to be!
When she is not reimagining and creating for clients, Linda enjoys time with her husband, Trevor and daughter, Gabby. She dabbles in photography and loves music, traveling, a good cup of coffee, and the summer season.

What if a piece of furniture could bring life and transformation to your home, as well as evoke a feeling?
