For three years running, Allison has been recognized as an “Austin Under 40” finalist and, Austin CultureMap dubbed her “a star to watch right now. Allison was ranked #2 as the “Best Interior Designer in Austin” by Austin Architects. Her work has been featured in both regional and national publications such as, Austin Monthly, Tribeza, Austin Women Magazine and K+BB Magazine.
“My husband and I initially hired Allison Jaffe Interior Design for phase 1 of a remodel of our home: complete renovations of the kitchen, master bath and powder bath, plus a major facelift of the living/dining/entry areas. We were so thrilled with Allison’s work, that we rehired her for phase 2: two smaller bath renovations, a reworking of the utility room, and updated looks for the den and the boys’ bedrooms. The fact that we went back to Allison for phase 2 is the best expression of our satisfaction with her excellent work!”
“Allison did a great job guiding me through the complex process of a full kitchen remodel. She has up-to-date, extensive knowledge regarding all the finishing materials, ie. counter tops, floors, tiles, etc., and she know all the local stores or web sites to get all the stuff. She is also an expert at CAD and can give clients 2D and 3D computer mock ups. Allison also has a keen eye for details. If she sees a problem or if the client brings one to her attention, she will do everything possible to make it right. But the best thing about Allison is that she won’t take over the project completely. One can be involved as much or as little as one desires.”
“Allison is a bright and determined design professional. We hired Allison to assist with a make-over of our kitchen and some interior painting. Allison did a good job upfront understanding our design preferences, wants and budget. One of Allison’s best assets is the portfolio of skilled contractors that she brings to the project. Being new to the Austin area this was critically important to us. Allison and her team are good communicators, project managers, and enjoyable to work with.”
“Allison Jaffe and I have worked on several construction projects together. Allison has the clients’ best interests in mind as she confidentially guides them through the initial planning phase, then on to material selections and execution. Her systems and processes are designed for clients to receive a seamless design experience with her team. The experience and knowledge Allison possesses is apparent from the moment you meet her! Allison has a wealth of knowledge; she can help with everything from induction ovens to wood species! As Allison guides clients through the process of design, she and her clients work together as important members of the same team. Allison very cleverly processes the client’s wishes while also combining her 10+ years of experience. This results in the outcome of a very happy client! I highly recommend Allison as the next designer on your project.”
“We worked with Allison on our kitchen and living/dining room remodel from project inception to completion, which included a complete gutting and reconfiguration of the kitchen. She was very professional throughout the entire process and helpfully pushed along the process to ensure the project was completed in a timely manner. Allison is a collaborator, who encouraged (and welcomed) our ideas but also provided invaluable feedback when our ideas weren’t consistent with the overall vision, which saved us time, money, and unnecessary angst. Her kitchen reconfiguration was brilliant which resulted in a completely different space, not just a cosmetic redo. She is a disciplined, organized, and transparent professional that was an asset throughout our entire project.”
“This was our second project to work with Allison and again it was a success. Just as she did several years ago, she helped us create a beautiful and “so us” updated look to an aged 1980’s Miami Vice house. Allison helped us create spaces that are reflective of our eclectic taste where we love to spend time and has the gift of being able to pull everything together for a fabulous look. This project was a kitchen, master bedroom, master bath, master closet and media room remodel. Allison only works with the best vendors and contractors in the Austin and surrounding areas. On the rare occasion there is an issue with any part of the project she jumps in and resolves it quickly. I do not need to worry when Allison is on the project… she is 100% involved and demands her vendors and contractors work with the same level of professionalism, integrity and creativity that she has on every day of the project. I had 100% confidence that Allison would do everything that she could to make sure every detail of the project was completed by the deadline. She even brought in additional support in those last few days to get everything pulled together. I am just upset there really isn’t anything else left in our house for her to work her magic.”
“Allison was always available when we needed anything, even when we just needed someone to reassure us we would get through the Reno. From her designs on paper to guiding me through the HUGE options for finishes she was always professional and really listened to what I wanted. I would highly recommend Allison Jaffe Interior Design for any project.”
“I was in the middle of an ongoing remodel project and needed an interior designer. I found Allison on Houzz and the first thing that caught my eye were the pictures of a particular remodel she had done. These photos spoke my language and I knew then, I wanted to work with her. I contacted her and the journey began. Allison was extremely efficient, we had our first meeting at the house and she was able to envision exactly what I wanted. Next time we met, she presented me with a sample book and nailed it. She understood my vision, which is unusual. I was very impressed at her precision and creativity, her ability to get along and professionalism. We completed the remodel and I couldn’t be happier with the results.”
“Allison did a great job helping us with material selection, project schedule, and redesigning our master bathroom. She had a great sense for our taste and style. The way she reconfigured our bathroom really opened it up and maximized the space. The whole thing came together very cohesively and we’re very happy with the finished product.”
“We have worked with Allison for several years and have continually been impressed by her professionalism and organization. She has a keen eye for detail and making sure her clients’ vision become a reality. Allison is one of the best in the business when it comes to prompt responses and attention for detail – an excellent communicator. Seeing Allison work with her clients in our showroom is always a pleasure. You can tell that she respects her clients just as they respect her. Designing and updating your home should be an enjoyable process and her passion and love for design makes it fun. We look forward to working with Allison for years to come.”
“My husband and I worked with Allison to remodel our master bathroom. We had never worked with a designer before but the contract was very clear and detailed and we were well informed and understood exactly what to expect. The project included removing the bathtub, replacing all of the tile, new paint, customizing our cabinets, lighting and paint color. The subcontractors she works with were terrific. The tile work was amazing and the cabinets are custom and exactly what we wanted. Allison was easy to communicate with and handled all the little problems that are inevitable with remodeling professionally and quickly. We couldn’t be more pleased with the way the project turned out.”
“Allison Jaffe Interior Design was my first and only call. Within the first few minutes of speaking with her, I could feel her passion and knowledge and love for her craft. I was a newbie to using a designer and hesitant, but Allison listened patiently to all of my needs and concerns. She took her time and thoroughly explained how the process worked, answering all of my questions. Before the call ended…I was in love!
Throughout the design process Allison continued to amaze me. She quickly learned my design style and gained all of my trust. Allison is extremely talented. She took my vision, spiced it up with her creativity and made this empty house a home. She’s honest, direct, friendly, confident and dependable! I’m so very thankful and forever grateful to have a piece of her talent splashed throughout my cozy home. Passion + Talent + Creativity + Patients = Allison Jaffe- I highly recommend.”
