In 2009, shortly after completing her Jackson Hole project near Beijing, Allison was interviewed by China’s Top Design Magazine. They were interested in her process around choosing color and decor.
You’re easygoing, comfortable, enjoying life’s simple pleasures. This understated palette offers the ideal hint of color to make you feel right at home. Choose slightly deeper tones for your fabrics and keep that softness going with plenty of texture.
Earlier this summer we did a “His & Hers” double bathroom remodel and this palette was the perfect bridge for the gap in their unique styles. Try this palette with rich wood and dark fixtures to bring some drama.

You’re comfortable in your own skin, expressing your personal style no matter what the trends say. The true-to-nature shades in this bold palette play up your strengths. When choosing fabrics, try mixing in a touch of teal to make it all pop!
Our home remodel project in North Bend utilized a chocolate brown and sandy gold from this palette. For the bathroom, we went all-in with spa style. Pebble tile, a walk-in shower, a rustic chandelier, and tons of natural light from new doors and windows.
We continued this palette into the adjacent master bedroom, adding a bold pop of red in the form of throw pillows.
It’s the Summer of Bath Remodels over here at Allison Smith Design. Last time we took you through a classic Bungalow bathroom addition in St. Paul. Next up, we’re showcasing a pair of bathrooms in a sweet ranch home in the lovely town of Silverton, Oregon. It’s a his and hers situation; she prefers the bathroom down the hall with a full sized tub, he prefers the master bathroom with a walk-in shower, but both are in need of some remodeling. We bridged the gap with some similar fixtures, matching mirrors, and gave both bathrooms some much-needed updates and lighting. Check out the photo gallery to see how matte black faucets can give a different feel based on the materials they’re paired with.
Pro Tip: If your home has forced air heating with floor vents, a quick and easy way to update your space is by swapping out the vent covers. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to bring new life into your home. Notice in the photos below how we went from an old, white-slatted cover to a matte-black patterned cover that compliments our fixtures. Vent covers come in a variety of colors and styles, choose one that compliments your door hardware or faucet finish.
