This past week the Allison Smith Design team packed up our tools, loaded the rig and set off for Redmond, WA to set up this new-build commercial project.  Allison was asked to design the leasing area and some amenity rooms for this new apartment complex.  This was our first time getting to see the finished product in person so we spent a lot of time admiring how everything turned out!  Can you blame us?!  Look. At. That. Fireplace!

For this particular interior, we went outside the realm of how we normally handle our commercial projects and got funky with a modern 70’s vibin’ decal wall in the entryway.  As Allison likes to say, “Groovy!”  (Shout out to our project manager, Julika, for installing these herself!)

Allison went with natural themed / neutral colored artwork made of different woods to even out those cool funky vibes.

   

We also want to highlight this stunning wall–Another element of this design that we had never done before. (We clearly took lots of photos of this one.)

Lots of dark accessories are found around the entirety of the leasing building.

We hope the future residents of this apartment building love this space as much as we do!  Want to see more? Click here to view more photos of this beautiful project!

This elegant home in San Jose del Cabo includes sweeping desert and ocean views, a sitting area that “floats” in the pool, and an open-concept floor plan flanked by a courtyard. The story of how this home came together includes a collaboration between Allison Smith Design and San Jose based architecture firm, Cubo Atelier.

Beyond the design of the home itself, Allison was also responsible for custom furniture and accessories created in San Miguel de Allende.

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

Eastmoreland Bungalow

Set in an early-twentieth century neighborhood in SE Portland filled with lush greenery, this Eastmoreland home was past due for some loving updates.  You may have seen our previous basement renovations of this home not too long ago.  Well we can officially say the rest of the home is finished!  Allison knew she had to stick to period friendly elements to match the neighborhood–nothing too modern that would be dated in a few years.  The ultimate goal was to maintain the home’s authenticity while still giving it a functional update.

When Allison hopped onto this project, she immediately identified issues with the existing floor plan.  There were unnecessary exterior doors and space being taken up by previous unprofessional planning with home renovations.  In order to open the kitchen up and give it the space it deserved, she planned to take out the existing exterior door and close off the doorway into the now office.  A new exterior door was placed near the master suite at the end of the hallway leading into the backyard.

 

  

One of the biggest requests of our clients was to fix the lack of privacy for each of the older daughters who desperately needed their own bedrooms, as well as to make each bedroom more functional. (None of them had closets!)  To remedy these problems, Allison designed a new bedroom space in the basement for one of the girls and reworked the upper level for the other where they were both initially sharing a room.  This also solved the problem of the girls and father having previously been made to share one bathroom.  Allison implemented a new joint bathroom/laundry room in the basement that the oldest could use as her personal bathroom.

Of course a renovation project this big came with it’s challenges.  Initial design plans included adding a third bathroom to the upper level of the home so that everyone would technically have their own bathrooms.  Unfortunately the city shut down those ideas which forced Allison to maximize the existing space she was already working with.

The most drastic changes are clearly seen in the kitchen and the bathroom on the main floor so these are naturally Allison’s favorite two rooms of the finished product.  Allison’s design inspiration for the kitchen came from vintage tin ceiling tiles.  She found the subtle, yet beautiful tile used in the kitchen back splash and knew she had to use it for this project.

Our team is incredibly proud of this project and we thoroughly enjoy showing off these before and after shots.  Feel free to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ as much as we have.

Fall In A Rec Center

Madison Way apartments, located in the greater Seattle area, received Allison’s magical touch – just in time for fall.

The rec center features camel-colored furniture, which we’ve nicknamed “pumpkin spice” after the famous Starbucks fall-time drink.

 

A sleek waterfall quartz kitchen island blends beautifully into the concrete-tiled floor. A large piece of driftwood, which spans half the length of the island, works beautifully as a statement piece, and harkens back to the “pumpkin spice” furniture.

 

While we’re speaking of statements, I ought to mention the kitchen backsplash we chose.

 

As you would expect, subtle pops of color were used throughout…

 

This rec center simply couldn’t be cozier… makes you want to grab a pumpkin spice latte and a great book to read by this fireplace.

 

 

Happy fall!

As always,
