Lynn Hollyn LYNN HOLLYN, Visionary yet intuitive, dynamic yet sensitive, her designs of architecture uncannily transplant elements of Europe, yet evolve organically from the land. She creates beauty and harmony for dwellers and viewers alike. Most of all, she sees the dreams inside her clients' minds and makes them a reality. Architecture, interiors and landscape are seamlessly fused in Hollyn's celebrated creations. Her clients seek her unique blend of coziness and elegance, where details abound but remain understated. The building process is infused with her boundless energy and quick mind-- and somehow construction seems easy! But the testimonials will reveal this as well as the attributes of her diligent team. The interesting aside is that Hollyn is truly a Renaissance woman: an award winning author, accomplished painter, pianist and gardener, with a passion for tennis and her four grown children! Her secret is to learn everything, forget nothing; bend like a willow but never surrender!

PHILOSOPHY Our homes and gardens reflect the diverse interests and personalities of our clients. We incorporate our love of history and antiques with fine materials and superb proportions to create an atmosphere of old world elegance alongside modern day technological amenities. From exquisite hand-carved woodwork to exuberant hand-forged wrought iron, we design interiors and exteriors with an artist’s eye for detail. The transitions from space to space are fluid like the passage of the seasons, yet each room, as one homeowner expresses it, has a “sense of surprise and wonder. Each view has been carefully considered with special emphasis given to the way light enters…and each corner of the garden brings you to another place to feast your senses.” By orchestrating each aspect of design, from initial architectural concept through completion, there is a melodious flow indoors and out. And long after you have settled in your home, we will continue to tend your garden and find treasures abroad.

“Irrepressible… overflowing with enthusiasm and design ideas,” is how Victoria magazine describes Lynn, who has been featured in all the leading publications, including House Beautiful, Redbook, Traditional Home, California Home and Design, Country Living, The New York Times as well as Victoria Magazine.
