About Alison Crawford Roane

Allied ASID, IIDA Associate

Since I was a small child – as far back as I can remember – I have been imagining how I could change the physical spaces around me to be more pleasing and comfortable. I would lay awake in my bed at night and imagine building an addition onto my bedroom.

I have also always been interested in helping others. With a degree from Meredith College in Interior Design and 8 years of experience under my belt, I am equipped to do just that!

I have friends and family that wanted to live in a beautiful, well thought out home, but they felt that they simply couldn’t afford it. A client recently told me that she spent less money working with me than if she had gone out on her own. I like to think of myself as an Interior Designer for the budget-minded.

I have worked on a variety of projects over my 8 years – including Retail Design, Kitchen & Bath demos, Bedroom overhauls, Nurseries, even down to helping a customer decide which house would be best suited for renovation.
