A Lake Minnetonka-sized thank you to editor Jenny Bradley, writer Kelly Kegans and photographer Werner Straube for this lovely reminder of a great collaboration with our clients and partners.
ENGLER STUDIO wins four first place awards in the 2017 aSID MN Competition!
When the homeowners acquired a classic lake home, they commissioned Engler Studio, Peterssen/Keller Architecture and Streeter & Associates to untangle a mish-mash of additions and other suspect remodeling projects, expand lake views, merge the inside and outside—and make it all look effortless! Challenged to create interiors that were charming, collected, unexpected and other compelling attributes, Linda Engler and Jenn Taft envisioned an intriguing balance of new and old, traditional and modern, organic and refined, masculine and feminine. Starting with a quiet, neutral shell, Linda and Jenn used a limited palette of patterns and colors enlivened with splashes of wit and whimsy. Guided by Engler Studio's signature mix mentality, they combined vintage Murano glass chandeliers with hefty industrial light fixtures and nautical accoutrements and custom furnishings including a flock of modern chairs lacquered in electric yellow, three tables and one porch swing. Mixing antiques from northern Minnesota with original contemporary art and photography and colorful rugs, Linda and Jenn gave the house a singular, modern vibe.

FROM CLIENTS & COLLEAGUES
Hands down, the BEST Interior Designer in the Twin Cities! Linda "gets" your taste, stays under budget, delivers on time, and is a blast to work with!! We couldn't recommend her enough!
"Engler Studio brings a fresh, uncluttered, and open feel to their work that subtly enhances the spirit of the architecture. Linda and her team merge design sensitivity and technical competence with the ability to hit client budgets and the discipline to meet the rigorous demands of tight construction schedules. It was a privilege to have the opportunity to work with Linda's group on a couple of recent collaborations. Their execution is elegant, under-stated, and sensitive to the architectural vision."
– SHARRATT DESIGN & COMPANY
"Linda and her team of design professionals are the best in Minnesota. They help translate your ideas into life. Not only does she bring an expert eye and a vast level of experience, she is fun to work with. Linda has a wonderful sense of humor and is always upbeat and in a good mood. That's what counts— making the design experience fun and enriching."
"We recently built a new home and wanted a designer who could go beyond echoing what the latest home catalogue offered. Instead of Pinteresting the house together, Linda and her team meshed their talents with our taste and added originality and charisma. And most importantly (with a family of three busy kids) the materials have lasted under tremendous traffic. Highly recommend!"
"We hired Linda Engler to help us decorate our home to a more up-to-date, sophisticated and cozy environment. Linda was essential in exposing us to new textures and patterns. She gave us a whole new look for our main living space, office space and master bedroom. We couldn't be happier with the results."
"I love working with this group! I hired Engler Studio because of several designs I had seen in several different magazines. I worked with Linda on redoing my basement from a teen hang-out to a place where my husband and I can watch TV or entertain friends. Linda and her team did a great job designing the space and picking out furniture and fabrics. Although I hired the firm for Linda's expertise, I loved working with everyone in the office. Everyone I worked with responded quickly and had wonderful ideas to add. I would recommend them (and have) to anyone. The best group to work with!"
"my style with designer expertise, Timely, on budget, Easy to work with, quick response times and unique resources others don't have. Linda and her team go above and beyond. Hands down, the best I have ever worked with!"
"Linda and her team helped us envision and implement an update to our living room, dining room and den. They did a great job of making the rooms flow smoothly which resulted in comfortable living spaces. I particularly appreciated their ability to use existing items through reupholstery and re-purposing. They were very transparent in pricing and timing and met all of our expectations. I have recommended them several times to others who have also been very pleased with their work."
"We hired Linda to do a complete redo of our house tied to a remodel. What a great experience! First and most important, she spent time getting to know us. Our likes, dislikes, how we used our spaces. This made the design process easy and fun, end to end. Linda challenged us to stretch ourselves, which we loved, and was totally fine if we pushed back. She was also open to challenges on price and when we felt something was too much, she came back with great alternatives. In the end, we have a home we love and several years later a home that still looks and feels new and fresh."
"Linda Engler has done several projects for me, including two bedrooms, a lower level design, a living room, two bathrooms and a design for a complete Kitchen and Dining Room remodel.All of Linda's work garners compliments from visitors. She has a flair for choosing colors and fabrics. My kitchen still looks as fresh and up-to-date AS the day it was finished. Linda is a pleasure to work with."
