A Design Star, Hard at Work
No stranger to DIY, Alison isn't afraid to get her hands dirty to salvage a room-making statement piece like this stunning carved fireplace surround and overmantel. Her ability to spot a diamond-in-the-rough, rehab it, then work it into her design lends her finished spaces character and a collected-over-time charm.
