insatiable curiosity . inventive solutions . deadline-driven discipline
Linda Baron
At StudioBARON Design, a boutique studio inspired by majestic Marin, our clients savor the creative process as much as the outcome. We parse every detail to produce beautiful, intentional, relevant spaces. Wherever you live, work or play, you want it to tell your story! We want you to love, love, LOVE it, long after our work is done. And, even, dare we say, to find a little magic along the way.... Please call to chat about your project.

Formerly a photojournalist for The New York Times, Linda Baron, the firm’s founder, draws on her extensive reportorial background to create a narrative for each project. Clients praise her signature curiosity, and immersive attention to detail. A graduate of Cornell, Linda double majored in Russian and American history, and believes her Liberal Arts foundation gives her perspective, both big picture and granular, as a designer. She finds inspiration in travel / culture far and near, loves a challenge, and fears only complacency (well, and skydiving). She brings the eye of an artist, soul of a storyteller, and backbone of deadline-driven discipline. When not designing, Linda may be found trail running with her rescue dogs, or in the kitchen cooking up something savory and seasonal.
StudioBARON Design offers a full range of services, from concept to completion.
