We are excited to have another Designer Spotlight week and feature our new team member, Ally Jackson! Ally received her BAA in Interior Design from Bellevue College and joined our team almost 2 months ago. She loves interior design for the creative, yet practical environment she gets to work in and she enjoys the excitement from clients when they have a space they love living in.
What three adjectives best describe your design style?
Timeless, simple, and modern.
What is the best design advice you’ve ever received?
Less is more. When I was early in my career, I had a hard time keeping it simple.
What is your main design aesthetic?
Vintage modern as well as Scandinavian design.
Are there any design trends that excite you?
I am loving the modern farmhouse trend that also mixes in vintage mid-century furnishing styles.
If you had $100 to put the finishing touches on a space, what do you do?
Drapery – I think that it adds softness to any space.
What are your hobbies, when you’re not designing?
I enjoy going to the gym, reading, dancing, hiking, spending time with friends and family, and trying new restaurants.
What is the least glamorous thing you do as a designer?
Quoting. That can take up most of my time.
What color scheme are you loving right now?
Neutrals! I am a black/white/gray/“greige” fan!
What is your favorite part of designing a customer’s home?
The product/material selection. I love the challenge of putting patterns and textures together that the client will love.
