Finally, An Interior Design Firm With Flexibility


“Creative “matchmaking” between your desires and a world of fresh colors, unique textures and statement furniture pieces is the exciting “art” in the art and science of interior design." Patti Allen and Stephanie James, co-founders of Allen and James Interior Design firm, are committed to inspiring and creating unique spaces for home, work, play and relaxation. With over 25 years of experience and a dedication to client relationships, we have consistently and successfully combined our love of interior decorating with our passion for signature designs. We cherish our unique ability to infuse international inspiration with style, color, texture and vision and are happy to be able to consistently exceed the expectations of any client’s interior decorating or redesign project. As interior decorators, we live by simple words that guide our work from start to finish: “Be certain you’re right, then go forward.” This path has served us and our interior design firm well over the years and has naturally evolved into our flexibility-based, 3-phase Service-With-A-Style business model:

  • Phase One of our time-proven process is … listening to you. In your home, office or even virtually via Skype or another online medium, we first spend time taking you through a detailed questionnaire specially created by our interior design firm. Our questions are designed to help you “dig deep” to express your general opinions about various furniture trends, as well as your personal needs for the space to be redesigned - whether it’s a residential, commercial or showroom design. These questions also seek to bring to the surface your more subtle wants for those spaces, all to help our interior decorators accurately interpret and visualize your every expectation for your spaces.
  • Phase Two is when the concept begins to take form. Based on the Q&A session and your responses, Allen and James’ Interior Design team develops concept drawings for the space or spaces, and then pulls visual examples for you from our international interior decorators network of window treatments, furniture, rugs and accessories resources. This helps you and us to begin to see and hone in on the real possibilities and alternatives for the spaces we’re designing for you.
  • Phase Three puts the plan into action. Once you and we are completely in sync as to the look to be achieved, pieces to be purchased etc., we go forward: specifications development begins, ordering and production follow, and the installation and finishing touches bring it all to completion!
