Linda Price-Bennett is a key member of our retirement home design and delivery team. She has brought a strong sense of style and functionality to our team that has made our projects substantially more appealing to our investors and ultimately our facility residents. Linda deals very effectively with large scale, tight deadlines, and long-term planning, and she has earned the trust of our architectural and engineering teams, as well as our suppliers. Importantly, she has imbued a strong sense of lifestyle into our projects, which has led to important fundamental design changes in both style and function. Her experience and strong relationships with suppliers have led to significant future cost savings. Overall, our projects benefit greatly from Linda’s contribution, and I recommend her highly for any housing design/development projects.

"Linda created a wonderful design vision for our lakeside condominium and managed the project from concept through to final completion. She reconfigured the space to deliver spectacular views of Lake Ontario from every vantage point in our home. She then selected beautiful artwork that we purchased under her careful guidance. She helped us understand that our new artwork is now growing as a financial investment – a bonus we never initially thought about. Every day we enjoy the results of her work. You can’t go wrong with Linda – she listens to your requirements, works within the budget, and delivers a 'Wow factor' that’s unbelievable!"

"We hired Linda for a complete redesign of our riverfront residence. She made significant changes to the rooms and common spaces to maximize the view of the river from as many rooms as possible. She selected interior colors consistent with the surrounding environment, then found us beautiful artwork which wonderfully complemented the interior look and feel, while at the same time reflecting the outside surroundings. She put a great deal of thought into her selection of art, and we’re extremely pleased with the results – we greatly enjoy her selections. We have since relied on Linda to select more pieces of our growing investment art collection. We are thrilled with the work she has done for us and recommend her highly to anyone who’d like to have a beautiful living space, especially in a waterfront setting."

I also used Linda’s services to start a collection of art for my personal residence in Seattle. The home is on a heavily wooded lot with a natural stone outcrop. She selected a series of impressionistic oil paintings that reflected the trees and stone outcrops outside the home. It is breathtaking. She then proceeded to commission a sculpture for my dining room – an interesting derivative interpretation of The Three Graces in Musee D’Orsay in Paris. She also commissioned a painting by a well known west coast artist of colourful fish swimming in a water pool, which beautifully complements my home. The sculpture and paintings continue to be a focal point of conversation in my home, and I am so proud to own such a unique collection of investment art. I have Linda’s amazing talent and industry connections to thank for this, and I highly recommend her to anyone wanting a special living or working space."

Innovative and Creative Thinking
We have had the pleasure of working with Linda Price-Bennett as an Interior Design consultant on our medical office renovation and as Project Manager on our personal home and property renovation. These projects have yielded excellent aesthetic and functional results with Linda providing a high level professional involvement throughout. On both projects, Linda met with us regularly for planning purposes, to seek our preferences and direction, and to share her research findings in a timely and logical fashion. She applied innovative and creative thinking in all aspects and was always willing to explore estimates, options or resources that were suggested. Linda managed the timelines and budgets of the many aspects of our personal project. This required much organization as this involved legal matters, local grading/hydro items, waterfront issues, landscape design, pool/spa items, home exterior, mechanical aspects, electrical and lighting considerations, security/IT/entertainment aspects and interior design, as well as interactions with our general contractor and subcontractors. Linda displayed skills with trouble-shooting and problem-solving and provided efficient communication. We recommend Linda and are thankful for her gifted abilities and assistance on our projects.

Wonderful to Live In
Linda did a wonderful job on our renovation. She listened to us and nailed the essence of what we wanted – “A family room with a kitchen in it”. She then layered in nuances and ideas that we never would’ve conceived of – including desk space and furniture and colour ideas. Linda worked collaboratively with the local contractors – getting relatively smooth results in a hot market. I whole-heartedly recommend Linda. She was a pleasure to work with and the spaces she created are wonderful to live in.
Outstanding! Dramatic! Fun!
I don’t know how to thank Lida Price-Bennett enough for the beautiful results she and her team created in my hair salon. Linda was fantastic, organized, professional, and great to communicate with. She respected our input and ideas and took them to a whole different level!
Eclectic and Elegant
I have had the privilege to collaborate and work with Linda on several design projects. Not only is she extremely professional, personable and a pleasure to work with, but her design philosophy and expert skill is apparent in all the work she does. Her individual design style is always beautifully executed and leaves everyone she works with overly satisfied. Truly an eclectic and elegant designer with a vast knowledge base. Looking forward to a continued design relationship with Linda Price-Bennett.
Beautiful and Functional
We had seen a number of projects Viali had completed for friends and colleagues and knew with Linda’s guidance we could create a home we would be happy in. Linda’s ideas and recommendations, and professionalism made the whole project a success. Linda walked us through the process, and helped us make decisions that we are happy with today. We can recommend the Design Consortium without hesitation or restrictions to anyone planning to make their place of business or home a beautiful and functional place.

Very Easy to Work With
Over the last 2 years, Linda has been an integral part in helping with designing and finishing our new home. I enjoyed the process of working with her and her team as we built our new home. Linda contributed to all aspects of the project. She provided us with excellent support and guidance in the areas of lighting both in location of electrical and selection of fixtures, color schemes in paint, finishes and flooring, selection of furnishings, and home decorating – that pretty much sums up the whole home being completed from top to bottom. Giving direction and guidance for the finished product and working closely with us, Linda guided and supported the process all the way. Her biggest attribute was listening to me and providing suggestions that would compliment my direction for my home. She is very easy to work along side with and I enjoyed the process with her. I can confidently recommend Linda as an expert in her field no matter what the “project” is.
Clear, Organized, Accessible
We contracted Linda Price-Bennett to help us renovate and re-design the living room and entry way in our Mid Century Modern riverfront home. We have nothing but good things to say about our experience with her. Linda really listened to what our needs were and took the time to get to know our style preferences. She did an excellent job focusing on our artwork to ensure it created the right level of drama in the space. The result is a beautiful, sophisticated and functional space that integrates the exterior views and colors of the river, with the interior of our home. We will love and enjoy this space for years to come. Linda was clear, organized, accessible, worked within our budget and always met deadlines. As a result, the process went smoothly and was surprisingly stress free. Linda was a joy to work with. We would recommend her without hesitation.
Exceeded My Expectations
Linda has made our home an inviting, unique and beautiful place to live. Working with Linda is pure pleasure. She is prompt, committed, artistic and practical. She listens carefully to what you are looking to achieve and then creates that and more. We have loved the rooms she has designed for our family. Having worked with other decorators over the years I am at times shocked to find how much attention to time limitations and detail she gives. Every room has been finished exactly when she told me it would be for the price she told me it would be. Linda’s rapport with the trades is admirable and she supervises all the work so it is done with little or no intrusions to our daily lives. I have recommended Linda to many of my friends and they have all been thrilled with the results. Linda Price Bennett is a professional, highly creative individual who definitely chose the right profession given her wonderful talents in the areas of interior decorating and design. Recently, I hired Viali to provide consulting services for a couple of decorating projects in my home. She took time to listen and I was impressed by how quickly she was able to understand my needs and assess my personality and style type. Her decorating advice exceeded my expectations and with her creative flair, she proposed ideas I never would have thought of. My advice – hire a professional like Linda – she’ll save you time, money and stress.
We work to ensure your full satisfaction with every aspect of your project.
