In every project, Allison’s design philosophy adheres to the same guiding principles.
Allison’s expertise is in taking her clients’ unique ideas and needs and turning them into concrete plan that a contractor can actually work with — and that the client will love, too. She is a design guide, drawing from her client’s culture, passions and life experiences to create a space that does far more than meet functional requirements. Rather, the finished project is an expression of the client’s personality and deepest values. From the first meeting to the last, Allison’s design process is every bit a collaborative effort to create her clients’ vision of their ideal space.
With Allison, it’s simple: when clients call, she calls back. When there’s paperwork to fill out, she does so promptly. Allison is more than a creative; she is a solid, business-oriented person who doesn’t get lost in the details. She is a communicator, and is entirely fluid in contractor-ese, so there is no room for misinterpretation in a contractor’s execution of a design. Clients trust her and her team implicitly from day one to handle the many organizational complexities of a remodel, renovation, or new construction project.
Possessing a unique grasp of both form and function, Allison begins her design process by thinking about how her clients will use their redesigned space. Storage, flow, and lighting requirements — all of these come first as Allison sets the scope of the project, creates demo plans, and considers the potential and limitations of the existing floor plans. In this way, working with Allison is like engaging an architect, with a talented design eye that will help her clients fully embrace — and enjoy — the process. At Allison Jaffe Interior Design, imagination and practicality combine for unparalleled results.
