modwalls Designer Spotlight: Alison Designs

Modwalls’ Designer Spotlight is on Principal Interior Designer Alison Shoemaker of Los Angeles based Alison Designs.  Alison Designs is a full service design studio specializing in both residential and commercial interior design, with vast portfolio covering everything from furniture to remodels and new construction.  A modwalls® trade account since 2009, Alison Designs recently sent us some gorgeous photos of their projects with our tile and we knew we had to show them off and let the spotlight shine!

Interior design comes naturally for Alison, who has been in the business virtually since birth; her mother was a designer, and organizing fabric and wallpaper books as a child gave her an early introduction into new colors and textures.  After spending some time in San Francisco, she made her way to Los Angeles to work with acclaimed Designer Barbara Barry. After gaining a wealth of experience, Alison realized she wanted to open her own studio, and in 2004 Alison Designs opened its doors.

Alison’s work has a classic yet fresh approach that mirrors her design philosophy. The designer believes that, “Great design is never restricted to a particular style as long as you use good design principles.  Whether modern or traditional, you can create an amazing space that reflects your personality and individual taste.”

Alison Design first discovered modwalls® tile in the summer of 2009.

“We’ve used modwalls® for past projects including the pebble tile for shower floors and glass tiles for shower walls and bathroom backsplash. We loved the outcome and so did our clients!”

Her bathroom update with modwalls® Lush® 3×6 Surf tile shows the designer’s talent for creating fluid, timeless spaces by balancing traditional and modern elements.

The dark wood finish of the cabinetry compliments the light, watery color of our Lush® Surf glass subway tile in the shower surround.

We can’t wait to share more modwalls® + Alison Designs projects in the future!
