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.
ASD’s First Airbnb!

When the ASD team travels we love a fully furnished and well-thought-out design with matching flatware, dishes, and bedding (it really is the little things).
Our goal was to design a cohesive vacation rental which spoke with the cleanliness of a hotel and the warmth of a home. Our goals were met in a future Airbnb rental in beautiful North Portland.
A large, open kitchen is open to the adjacent dining and living rooms.
In larger hotels we are offered a magical bed to sleep on, but board games and favorite books are smaller touches of home we’ve considered. We’ve even included a cocktail strainer so when your party needs a well-made cocktail on a warm Portland afternoon, you’re set.
We’ve developed the most comfortable bedrooms.
A nap in the afternoon sun on this bed? Yes please.
For the traveling readers; don’t worry, we’ve included bedside lamps.
We’ve added some new toiletries from Beekman 1802. They’re a beautiful company from Sharon Springs, NY.
