ASD Journey

Allison Smith has 30 years of experience designing homes in the Portland area and beyond. We are a full-service interior 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, Allison Smith Design manages 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.
