For a home in Chastain Park, the clients came to Alison  when they were in blueprint stage and invited her to collaborate with the architect (Harrison Design) and builder (Monte Hewett) to perfect the house plans. They then launched into the interiors marrying the classic architecture to the interior details. The homeowners really wanted something 
classic – yet unique.     

“We were able to incorporate their request with interior architectural details, wood paneled library, barrel vaulted rooms down to the hand painted Grisaille Mural in the Dining Room,” says Alison. “We then layered the soothing color palette of mocha, shades of blue, cream and terracotta with carefully selected furnishings and textiles to complement and encompass the entire home.” 

For a home on Berkley Lake near Johns Creek, Alison also met the clients during construction. “They were to the point of being overwhelmed with many decisions regarding construction and interior finishes such as lighting, flooring, cabinet and counter selections and more.” Alison’s team helped pursue the interior layout of furniture and followed through to the furnishing selections. The homeowners were looking for an architecturally interesting house with a sophisticated eclectic and collected look.  “We feel that this was achieved above and beyond, and the clients were ecstatic with the results,” says Alison.
