This sunny sanctuary located in Scottsdale, Arizona, recently completed in October 2018, was designed with the intention of being a getaway from the client’s original home in the Pacific Northwest during the rainy winter season. Allison Smith Design took this home and transformed it to create a timeless expression of modern artisan design.
Right off the bat, Allison and our client both agreed that the beautiful Arizona desert surroundings should be implemented into the design of this home. A newly opened kitchen and the install of large sliding glass doors supply an abundance of natural light into the great room creating a larger connection to the outdoor living space. Allison and our client decided on a clean color palette with natural hues pulled from the surrounding Arizona landscape.
The custom, handmade furniture featuring mixed woods, metals & concrete textures gives this home a true sense of artistry. Vibrant artwork and accessories warm up the industrial materials used as the foundation of the design.
We invite you to explore the photo gallery to see this beautiful project for yourself. Please let us know if you would like to inquire further about this project.

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 rec center in Auburn, Washington features a bold orange wall, a beautiful blue subway-tiled fireplace, and eye-catching texture for days.
The exterior of this rec center features wooden gables that protrude from the building. The underside of the gables showcase the natural beauty that the Pacific Northwest has to offer. Many of the interior selections harken back to the same idea.
