Allison Smith - Principal Designer and Owner

Allison grew up near Providence, Rhode Island. She graduated from F.I.T. in New York City. After a several year hiatus from design while rearing her two children, she and her husband Jerry decided to make the major move down to the Carolinas to be close to family. After extensive planning, Allison hired Gabriel Builders to construct a customized Nantucket inspired house on Lake Keowee. “The process was spectacular, it was a truly wonderful experience. I could not have been more pleased. I want people to know that building your dream home doesn't have to be a stressful experience.” Soon afterwards, the Smiths purchased a home in Greenville as well.  "I knew it was time to go back to work, so I decided to open up a second location of a high end design store offering gift items, furniture and design services. I certainly learned a lot about retail through this endeavor and I enjoyed the experience, but my heart is truly in design”.  And so, the decision was made to open Allison Smith Interiors, a full service interior design firm.
