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.

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 


 

 

 

 

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,

Grimey Basement to Gorgeous Bathroom

This adorable home in southeast Portland’s desirable neighborhood of East Moreland is in need of some TLC.

A couple years ago, Allison Smith Design remodeled the entire basement.

We took this:

 

And turned it into this:

 

Keep in mind, this is in a basement. There isn’t a single window in the space.

 

Light and bright paint colors + light and bright materials + a few contrasting pieces = a beautiful, bright space.. even without natural light.

 

 

Beginning fall 2018, Allison Smith Design is taking on this adorable home again… This time to transform the two upper levels.

 

Stay tuned….

Massive Remodel

We’ve been working on a 3-level, 6,300 square foot remodel for a family relocating to the Northwest Portland hills.

It’s been a massive undertaking, as you may know from watching HGTV’s popular shows including Flip or Flop, Fixer Upper, Love It or List It…. Just kidding. They make it look so easy. (and so cheap).

The home is perched atop a hill, which overlooks Portland’s beautiful landscape.

The location is perfect. The home itself, however, is a little quirky…

Check out the before pictures….

 

The home was built in 2004, but you’d never know it from its features.

These archways on the lower level. It feels like a dungeon… and not in a Cool-Dungeon-and-Dragons way – but in a Get-Me-Out-Of-Here way.

The home has a very Chippendale feel to it. Before you Google it (you might not want to – for other reasons), let me explain.

 

 

 

 

Chippendale is a style that became popular toward the end of the 18th century. It’s a combination of Gothic, Rococco, and Chinese style.

The curvature of many features in this home harcken back to the Chippendale trend. The lighting fixtures and stair railing also showcase that Chippendale Chinese influence.

 

 

 

 

 

It isn’t very well-known, but when you see it, you know it. And this house is certainly Chippendale-esque.

 

Despite the original design intent, we’re going to turn this house into a beautiful, contemporary space.

 

 

 

 

Starting with the entry…. We’re taking out these double doors and replacing them with a very custom-looking pivot door.

 

We’re also going to grey-wash all of the stone outside of the house. We knew we’d be ripping out the stone on the interior, so we practiced the technique here.

 

 

 

 

The earthy, multi-colored brown stone exposes the time when it was installed. This colored rock was very trendy in the early 2000’s, and now that the trend is over, we’re simply making the exterior material compliment our new color palette.

 

 

Here you can see the difference the grey-washing makes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here’s the same room shown above, with the stone removed, and you can see hints of the new flooring and baseboard. (Though we’re clearly still in the heavy construction phase)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

While we’re talking about outdated materials, I should mention the tile on this grill. We’ve already ripped it out and come up with an entirely new plan.

The surrounding of the grill is going to be a grey quartz waterfall slab, which is accentuated by the concrete tile we’ve laid… we went with concrete tile rather than wood or Trex decking to get a more custom look and more color variation.

And of course, imagine that stone column in the photo below grey-washed. It’s going to be stunning.

We still have a long road ahead of us.. but we’ll keep you updated. Every day we take strides, and we know it’s going to come together beautifully… Now we sound like HGTV. 😉

 

Stay tuned!!
