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.

Jeni is a graduate of Converse College's NASAD and CIDA accredited Interior Design Bachelor's Degree Program. Her passion for design, especially in the areas of hospitality, health care and residential design, along with her ability to communicate, and her organizational skills have increased dramatically through furthering her education, participating in internships, and her work experience. Through the art and design departments at Converse she was able to travel internationally, giving valuable knowledge of international and historical design. On a personal level she has also traveled extensively around the United States and abroad. In addition to her express interest in photography, sculpture, ceramics, and other forms of art, she has been a competitive swimmer for seventeen years. Swimming has afforded me the opportunity to be a team member, a leader and now a coach and instructor. Her love of nature, animals and sports fill her off time hours. She is excited to use her determination, knowledge, and passion for design to benefit all that she or her designs come in contact with.
