Allen & James Interior Design
Interior decorators with more than three decades’ combined experience, we at Allen & James know that our job is to interpret your vision and, by design, transform it into functional living space that also reflects your individual sense of style and taste with spectacular window treatments, and accessories. And we pledge to work closely with and for you to deliver that vision in rooms of fine furniture for fine living, your way! Patti and Stephanie live by simple words that guide their work from start to finish: “Be certain you’re right, then go ahead.” This straight forward, process-driven philosophy has led Allen & James across more than 25 years of successfully understanding and responding to clients’ expressed needs — because, no client wants a headstrong, “know it all,” interior designer who only is willing to see — or sell — things his or her own way. So, first, we listen and learn. We let the client tell us in her or his own words exactly what space or spaces are to be redone, what the lifestyle expectations are for each and what sorts of looks and styles are desired. After digesting all that input, we provide the client with our summary of what it is we believe we heard and show examples of the sorts of furnishings, window treatments, fabrics and accessories we believe reflect the reality of the client’s wishes. From that, and always working collegially with our clients, we and they pursue the process of giving form and substance to what previously had only been a mental image. As appropriate and reasonable, we sometimes introduce new considerations – styles, colors, textures etc. – into the conversation to help our clients think outside the box. But, regardless of our own tastes and inclinations, we never — ever! – try to force our own perspectives onto our client. We are interior design guides, sourcing experts and helpers, but never dictators of what must or should be. Even when considering small spaces, we encourage our clients not to presume that it means small furniture. We always say, “Even if your small space has to accommodate a large group of people, approach it with seating in mind and stretch your imagination to consider all possibilities.”
