Signature Style

Posted on June 10, 2014

Bravo’s celebrity designers Jeff Lewis and Mary McDonald are great talents in the industry of interior design and many times their clientele hand over a space to them and they take the reigns. Both have not only developed a signature style but have gained the trust of their audience to do so.

Collaboration is an integral part of the AJID design process and I do my very best not to incorporate my personal style into a client’s home. Instead, I focus on how they want to live in their spaces and guide them though the design process with my knowledge and expertise. But I often wondered what it would be like to design spaces completely carte blanch incorporating my own eclectic signature style where India meets France.

Below are two fictional scenarios, a living room and a master bedroom, both very important spaces in a home. Here’s my take if a client with a blank slate said to me, “take it from here, Allison!”

Living Room Story Board


When designing a living room, I begin with the largest piece of furniture, the sofa and work my way down to the smallest piece in the space. The selection of a slate-grey/blue sectional sets the tone for the room and is offset with cream colored accents found in the side table, coffee table and accent chair. Mixing sizes, shapes and styles all aid in tying the living room together. The rug is my favorite piece, although traditional in design, it would work in any space.

Master Bedroom Story Board


More often than not, including myself, a client wants a bedroom room that has a warm inviting feeling and gives them a sense of calm when entering. I selected a monochromatic color scheme for this reason alone. Although the colors are subdued the furniture is unique with nods to the near east and France.
