How does Allison Sloan Polish design and what is her process

Interior Design

TODAY, PEOPLE ARE INTERESTED IN INVESTING IN EXPERIENCES, NOT POSSESSIONS.  AN INVESTMENT IN INTERIOR DESIGN IS AN INVESTMENT IN AN EXPERIENCE.

Good design can change your relationship to your space, how you live, and your ability to connect with your family and friends in your home.

Well designed interiors and exteriors should de-stress life, bring focus to what’s important, and reflect your personality and interests. I am all about creating spaces that speak to you, and make you love where you live. In order to accomplish this, we start with a series of questions to uncover the programmatic uses and function that the space needs to deliver.

Our Process

EVERY PROJECT IS CUSTOM. BELOW ARE THE COMMON WAYS IN WHICH WE ENGAGE WITH CLIENTS.

  1. Free project consultation via phone or zoom.
    We get to briefly know each other, discuss the project, and see if we want to continue exploring a partnership in design.
  2. In-person initial design meeting, $150/hr.
    During this meeting, we discuss pain points, programmatic needs, and how you want your transformed space to feel. SPd also takes detailed measurements of the spaces in discussion.
  3. Proposal for the work and how SPd will approach your project.
    Either a flat fee or an hourly contract will be proposed, depending on the scope of work and particulars of the project. All proposals can include, but are not limited to, project design/concepting, 2D floor plan and 3D visualization, custom cabinetry design, budgeting, and furniture and paint selections.
  4. Decision on how and in what ways you would like engage SPD.
    A deepening engagement could include:

    • Additional design work.
    • Sourcing/shopping for materials or furnishings (trade savings will be passed on to clients where possible).
    • Securing bids from tradespeople.
    • Project management.

We can discuss providing any of these additional services under an hourly contract.

Our Working Relationship

WE STRIVE FOR TRANSPARENCY AND EXCELLENCE
IN ALL THAT WE DO.

As a client of SPd, you can expect attention to detail and superior project management. Our online portal allows a seamless two-way workflow for tracking time against projects as well as viewing and approving proposals and invoices, even paying via ACH transfers. Additionally, we provide all clients with a shared budget document that allows collective financial tracking as well as a delivery tracker with an up-to-the-minute status of shipping/arrival dates. We believe our clients should be able to see exactly how their hours and dollars are spent. No guesswork involved.

SPd has the highest standards of excellence and only recommends the best trade partners and vendors with the same commitment to professionalism. Unlike other firms, we allow you to contract with them directly and do not markup their services.

And, if space or timing constraints prohibit you from collecting purchases in your home as they ship, we have the ability to work with our receiver to inspect, store, and ultimately white-glove deliver your furniture for the ultimate HGTV full-install type of experience.

Billed by hour

The smartest and most important decision we made in designing, building, and furnishing our new home was to hire Allison Sloan Polish as our interior designer. We literally couldn’t have done this without her.

Now that we’re in our new home, we are so grateful for the experiences and spaces that Allison helped us create. We recommend her without hesitation!

Scott and Diane Eblin, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

Allison helped us to completely transform our primary living /entertaining space. After 16 years in our custom, modern home, we were badly in need of a “refresh”. Allison expanded/greatly improved the initial concept we had, and we could not be happier. She has a phenomenal design eye but is also organized and proactive!

Tracy Harris, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

Allison’s sense of style and knowledge of design were the perfect combination for my one room design project. She listened to my ideas and needs to completely transform the space into one that is not only beautiful, but functional.

Pam Reed, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

Allison was key to transforming our newly purchased modern house – which was a blank slate – into a comfortable and stylish space, keeping with the modern vibe of the home that we wanted. We LOVE where we live every single day – thanks to Allison’s ability to hear our wants and translate them into the home. She respected our budget, listened to our ideas, pushed us to think outside the box, and worked on our timeline. Sloan Polish Design furnished our kitchen, dining room, living room, den, and roof deck.

I would work with her again in a heartbeat – but everything is perfect and can’t imagine changing a thing.

Heidi Tyson, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

Allison is so talented—she is a natural when it comes to design and seeing the whole picture.

Julie Cohoon, ARCHITECT

Allison has an amazing eye and her use of color is always spot on! She helped us furnish a modern new build and we’re thrilled with how everything turned out. She’s also so much fun to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her!

Perri Kersh, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

Allison has an amazing eye for design. We engaged her to redesign our primary bedroom and bath, and we couldn’t be happier with the results. She is very easy to work with and brings a lot of fresh ideas to the table.

There is simply no way I could have managed the bathroom remodel without her – she has handled all the project management by answering design questions, scheduling appointments with vendors, checking progress and generally keeping the project moving on schedule. She has worked within our budget and communicated every step of the way so there have been no surprises.

I highly recommend working with Allison and putting faith in her design judgment – you will not be disappointed!

Jennifer Kanjorski, RESIDENTIAL CLIENT

We built a custom aluminum pergola for one of Allison’s projects and had a great experience working as a sub-contractor. Allison’s taste is dialed in, thoughtful, and pragmatic.
