A Bright Green Beginning to 2017

Sherwin Williams does it, Benjamin Moore does it and so does Pantone. A few weeks back, Pantone released their 2017 Color of the Year, Greenery to an audience of color enthusiasts, interior and graphic designers alike.  

Before the color was announced, I must have been subconsciously channeling green. In a recent master bathroom update, I encouraged my clients to boldly paint their cabinets a deep green color (Sherwin Williams 6475 Country Squire). Not quite Greenery but wow, did it make an impact! 

The color Greenery reflects the global cultural climates and influences many faucets such as architecture/interior design, fashion, and even food. Greenery, is described as a yellow-green hue representing and signifying a new year, fresh start, grass, outdoors, environment  Oh, how we need one of those!

Could you see yourself using this color in your home, painted on your walls, cabinets or as pillow fabric for your sofa. Do you love this color and not sure how to use it? I’d be more than happy to show you how! Call or email us for a cheeky Green consultation! 

Rockin’ the Kasbah

Some of you know that I am just back from my trip to Morocco. I spent the past week making my way around the country stopping in Casablanca, Tangiers, Rabat and Marrakech.

The sights, sounds and smells were overwhelingly inspirational. Morocco is known for its vibrancy especially in tile design and installation and it was fun to capture while traveling to each city.

On Trend: Heavy Metals

Not sure about you but my affinity for all things metallic is growing everyday. We have become accustom to brushed nickel, stainless steel, chrome and oil rubbed bronze but brass and gold are making a strong and not to be ignored debut.

Don’t worry, its not the brass and gold of yesteryear. The reinvented finishes finishes of today have a contemporary spin making it suitable for all types of uses from pillows and accessories to faucets and lighting.

Featured Project: Rainbow Ranch Master Bathroom

A recent residential project consisted of contemporary new construction. See how the design of the handcrafted cabinetry of the kitchen, stairwell, and master bathroom make this a retreat for the couple who live here in Central Texas. Emphasis on the use of natural materials in a clean way allow for a space that is warm, inviting, and completely livable. View more project photos.

Signature Style

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.
