Today we’d like to introduce you to Ayden Martin.
Hi Ayden, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today.
After graduating with a degree in business marketing in 2020, I dove into the corporate world—to find my creativity and passion falling flat.
Through college, I worked under a professional organizer and grew to love the minimalist lifestyle. Though it was closer, this was also not my calling.
My true passion was creating not only beautiful but FUNCTIONAL homes. Beauty and function NEED each other. They go hand in hand.
To make a long story short, I left the corporate scene, fully renovated my own home, & immediately launched White Linen Design Co.
Since then, I’ve renovated & designed various different projects, including 2 out-of-state homes. I absolutely love what I do and am so grateful I started this venture!
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way? Looking back, would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
Of course, there’s been hiccups, as with any new business venture. But I’ve tried to keep the mentality that any problem can be overcome- there are no roadblocks you can’t find your way around.
As you know, we’re big fans of White Linen Design Co. For our readers who might not be as familiar, what can you tell them about the brand?
White Linen Design Co is an interior design company that would best be described as minimalist & functional design. All of my projects are fully customizable, where I offer a free 1-hour consultation to determine if I can help best fit your needs for your project. Whether you want help with something as small as picking out your home’s lighting, or you want a top to bottom house remodels, I am here to help!
Something that I believe sets me apart from others is that I have a background in professional organizing, so each project I spend a large amount of time thinking through the details other designers tend to disregard. I try to imagine how a space will be used, where storage is necessary, etc. I never will buy just “filler” items; each item I bring in is intentional.
What matters most to you? Why?
I work really hard to create a stress-free environment for my clients, whether in their home or their workspace. I believe a home should be a sanctuary, a safe space if you will.
