Creative Classics, Inc.

About Us

Linda Valentino, the sole owner and designer, has been doing residential architectural design in the DC metro area for 25 years. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Architecture from Princeton University and then spent a few years in Manhattan first with an interior design firm and then as a project manager for a construction development company before moving to Virginia in 1990. She started her own company in 1991 so that she could work from home while raising her two sons, Alex and Justin. She is equally comfortable designing new homes as she is with working on large or small remodeling projects and has acted as the general contractor for both of her own homes in Arlington and Falls Church City.
