Upcoming Events

September 24, 2019 – Detroit Colour Council presents:

Linda Shears Designs, LLC – Color is all around us

Color is all around us. It is a powerful tool that can unify a room and completely alter one’s experience within a space by how it affects mood and perception of the size of the space. Linda Shears, ASID, invites you to explore color at a deeper level in her presentation on the psychology of color as it applies to home interior.

Linda is a residential interior designer and a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID). She is NCIDQ Board Certified per the National Council for Interior Design Qualification. A recent recipient of the ASID “Lifetime Achievement Award,” Linda has been featured in many national and Detroit-area publications and local TV media.

Linda is one of the Michigan Design Center’s Featured Designers and as such is often called upon to participate in consumer events. She frequently lectures about one of her passions–the psychology of color and color trends in design.

As a residential designer with 40 years of experience, Linda focuses on partnering with her clients to visually create an interior that reflects the homeowners’ individual personality, lifestyle and dreams while maintaining a sense of timeless design.
