I have worked with Linda Carbutt, owner of Alba Home in Lambertville, NJ, several times. Linda has an incredibly refined, sophisticated eye and an amazing capacity for understanding the budget, needs and tastes of her clients. Her color sense is unsurpassed. Every design project of hers that I’ve seen has resulted in a space suffused with charm, glamour, style and comfort. If Architectural Digest showcased designers who achieved fabulous results within a reality-based budget, Linda would surely be in those pages.

Alba has truly transformed our home in ways we did not think possible. Linda is fantastic at listening to what the client would like but than is able to take that concept and through her vision, talent and skill make it something very special. She is thoughtful of budget and time and how to minimize inconvience to the homeowners. She is also just a pleasure to be with.

Living in NYC, my wife and I had the very good fortune to meet and get to know Linda while taking weekend trips out to Lambertville. In fact, we loved the area so much we moved here full-time in 2012. Having bought a gorgeous 1840s stone home, we wanted to re-decorate the interior in a clean, timeless look — with a slightly modern edge. We believed that Linda could work wonders… and boy did she ever. My wife and I trusted Linda so very much… and her design ideas turned out to be right on the mark. And in the end, we have a dream home we used to just imagine. Hats off to Linda, a gal with a keen, clean design aesthetic and, just as important, a person with a beautiful soul.

Linda Carbutt of Alba Home is expert at all the things I cannot do. As a designer she breaths lightness and sophistication into every room she touches. She is the soul of integrity and has amazing resources. Besides all that she is a damn nice lady.

I worked with Linda as an installer. One of the jobs that I did for her was a house near New Hope, PA. She did a beautiful job of designing it. I work with other Interior Designers but Linda is always the first I would recommend.

Linda Carbutt, owner of Alba, uses a visual vocabulary of understated elegance, combining textures, hues, and elegant silhouettes to create luscious interiors for her clients. Ms Carbutt has perhaps the most important skill, vital to serving clients, the ability to listen and translate an idea and personality unique to each customer. I highly recommend Alba!

My wife and I are shameless fans of the Alba Home design aesthetic – simple, unpretentious, humbly luxurious, always comfortable, and occasionally outrageous. Great meeting of earth (pragmatism) and sky (idealism) – style over fashion – that’s somehow both modern and timeless.
— Jim Stagnitto
Linda is terrific and has a very creative eye. She incorporates the things you love with more contemporary furnishings so that your house is a true representation of your individual style, with all the touches and comfort of a luxury boutique hotel.

Linda is very talented, creative, personable, kind and honest. She has been a strong resource for the past 10 years that I will remain engaged with. She has an exceptional eye for color, design, texture. I can recommend her highly to anyone who wants a lovely home that is tailored to their tastes.

I have engaged Alba for home design advise and have known Linda for many years. She is truly unique both as a talented decorator and as an honest and caring individual. I place her at the top of my lists of professional decorators and trusted friends. She is the simply the best!

Alba Home has been very responsive and accomodating to my needs and was always in a position to offer expert advice. This, combined with quick response times helped me to achieve my design goals quickly. I would recommend the Alba team without hesitation.
