Get to know our newest designer…Allie O’Brien

  1. How would you describe your design style?

    I love the farmhouse, rustic, industrial, traditional, and boho chic styles and my favorite is when you take all of this and combine them into one. I guess you could call it eclectic.

  2. What is your favorite part about working with clients?

    Getting to know them and learning the individual style of the client.

  3. If someone wanted to DIY their kitchen remodel, what advice would you give them?

    After just painting a master vanity cabinet, I would say to wait and save save save and just pay someone to do it. It is hard work redoing things yourself, and involves a lot of time. Don’t start until you are 110% ready.

  4. What is an average day for you like? 

    Since I just started full time this week, I am still in the training and learning mode. I get to work and check emails and then do whatever Chrissy, Dave and Sara tell me to help them with.

  5. What are 3 words that describe you?

    Organized, Creative and talkative…

  6. Where do you look to for inspiration?

    Pinterest and design magazines!

  7. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

    Since I am getting married this September, in 5 years I plan to have started a family and managing working as a designer and raising kids! My soon-to-be stepson will be 9, so I’m sure we’ll be juggling practices of some sort!

  8. If you could have a celebrity as a client, who would it be and why?

    Either Jessie James Decker & Eric, her husband or Jana Kramer. I follow both of these families on social media and just love there styles!

  9. What is your favorite phase of a project (the pre-design work, the beginning/demo, middle, or end/completion)?

    Pre design work and the completion are my favorite parts. It is a tough toss up at which one is better than the other.

  10. When you’re not busy designing at work, what do you spend your time doing?

    Redecorating and fixing up my Fiance’s house, going on walks with our dog Lilly, taking naps, and currently trying to plan our wedding!

  11. Tell me one fun fact about you that no one really knows. 

    My life goal is to be a mom! But I’m sure if you know me, you know that! I am an open book more often than not!
