ASD Journey

Allison Smith has 30 years of experience designing homes in the Portland area and beyond. ASD is a full-service design studio providing large and small remodeling, new-build design, custom furniture, commercial projects (new and remodeled), and custom design palettes. 

Allison has been working in and around Beijing since 2006 when she completed a western-themed mock town outside the great wall called Jackson Hole.  In 2018, she was brought back to Beijing to create a rodeo-themed bar and restaurant on the 26th floor of an Armani/Casa building in the financial district.  

For commercial, restaurants, and residential projects, ASD helps with every aspect of the design process; from material selection, floor plan adjustments, project management, to custom furniture design, and all the way down to accessory placement. Each project is unique and catered to by our design team and trusted contractors.

Anisa Kopulos – Design Assistant

Born and raised in Michigan, Anisa moved to Portland to immerse herself in the interior design industry.  Hired in mid-2018, she handles residential projects and a wide range of office management tasks including furniture orders, deliveries, and keeping everything on track.

She has fallen in love with this rapidly growing city and the industry that’s helping it grow.  It’s likely you’ve run into her at various coffee shops around town, or at Powell’s “just looking” for her next read.
