Meet the Designers
Becky Smith, owner of The Linen Duck, has created unique and innovative interiors for home owners, residential home builders and commercial clients over her 17 year career. Becky’s career started in Charleston, SC where her portfolio includes acclaimed architects, Southern Living Home builders, and an elite clientele and her work published in 2 separate editions of Charleston Home Magazine.
Tye Smith, Becky’s husband, is a master builder and owner of Bellus Construction. Together Becky and Tye Smith provide a full service team to clients embarking on home renovations and new home builds. In 2014, they added SouthernKitchen & Bath as a subsidiary company in order to meet the growing demand for beautiful and affordable semi-custom cabinets.
In 2017, after completing one of her most monumental projects to date, a complete renovation and rebranding to an underachieving home store in Franklin ,TN her popularity soared. The need for a storefront and design studio became obvious as word spread about Becky’s unique custom design work. Her eye for beauty and balance, have made her designs and selections in great demand. The design studio provides clients a beautiful place to plan their projects and make their selections. The storefront boutique allows everyone the opportunity to take a piece of Becky’s flare for design home with them. By August of 2018, the location for The Linen Duck had been identified, the renovations complete and the store front and design studio officially opened.
Since opening the design studio and storefront boutique, The Linen Duck, has been able to serve hundreds of clients across the entire Greater Nashville area with full room designs, renovations projects and furniture plans. Becky Smith, has been seen on Talk Of The Town, and received mentions in Greater Nashville House & Home, The Daily Harald, and Destination Tours.
“Working alongside homeowners, builders, and architects for 16 years has convinced me that there are two parts to design. One part is specified and executed visual aesthetics that go beyond the expected, and the second part is problem solving. Every space one seeks to improve, whether large or small, has a problem to be solved before it can become beautiful. Of the 100 + spaces I have designed, they all have had an underlying design challenge. My passion is what comes after the problem solving, and that is pulling beautiful textiles and color together with new and found objects to create stunning, yet livable rooms for my clients.” Becky Smith, Owner The Linen Duck
