Barbara Martin started her career in 1978 with a prestigious linen company in Beverly Hills, where she designed linens for Hollywood's elite, Grammy recipients and the Reagan White House. After her experience at the company, she realized her passion was to work with clients on a more intimate basis, so she founded Barbara Martin Custom Linens.

Today, she imports linens from proprietary sources in Italy and works with prominent international designers, creating linens for homes, yachts and private planes, as well as easy-care linens for second homes and children's bedding in beach bungalows. Her linens are made of pure long-stem Egyptian cotton, grown free of pesticide or fertilizer, and come in more than 200 colors.

Initial consultations are complimentary and include measuring the bed to ensure a custom fit and finding key elements important for a good night's sleep. She can provide everything from the correct mattress pad to the perfect sleeping pillow at 118 Apolena Ave. in Newport Beach. For a private appointment, call (949) 723-1879 or visit http://www.barbaramartincustomlinens.com.
