Early on in my design career, friends and family invited me over and asked if I could redecorate using furnishings and objects they already had. I would send them off, have the house to myself and find my inspiration. I really enjoyed the process of simply decorating with what they owned, and so decided to launch Allison Smith Decorate with What You Own Interiors®. This service has become one of the cornerstones of my business. I now include paint palettes and modest purchases along with the process of using what each client owns to recreate a look that identifies and personalizes their home.
