We hired Allison based on review of her portfolio online, and she didn't disappoint! Our living room and dining room were in dire need of design. We told Allison she had free reign to design the space. She was so awesome to work with - incredible eye for design, professional, communicative, organized, decisive, and a great listener. We wanted a space that was nice enough to entertain while being comfortable for every day family use, with consideration that we have 2 young children and 2 cats. We could not have asked for a better design and outcome. Check out her blog for before and after photos - we still can't believe how she transformed the space and gave our family exactly what we were looking for, even though we couldn't exactly articulate it ourselves! I'll always be a reference for Allison and very highly recommend her for your next interior design project.

We live on a working farm in a redone 1777 Colonial home. Allison designed the perfect sitting and dining area for us, working with a number of constraints - including existing decor in the kitchen and living/TV room, a need to display toy soldiers and using the horse pictures we love. We wanted an updated look, but not so updated that it looked out of place in our Colonial home. Her design is amazing, from the overall look to how every detail helps tie the whole downstairs together. Before Allison, I wondered how the area could ever look good and now it makes me sooo happy.

Allison is a consummate professional with a true talent for interior design. I hired her to help us redesign our living and dining rooms, and with only minimal input from me, she was able to put together an elegant, modern design that matched our aesthetics and lifestyle. She transformed our home by striking the perfect balance between functional, comfortable living spaces and a stylish and contemporary design. Allison really does put the customer first, and was very prompt with dealing with orders, recommending contractors, and helping us make decisions during the course of the project. I highly endorse her, as her rates are very reasonable and the quality of her work is outstanding.

My husband and I recently bought a new home that needed major renovations and a fresh new look. I had never used a designer before; but due to our home's unusual architecture and characteristics, I decided to look for someone to help with my vision. I hired Allison Ducharme because she was located in my hometown and it only made sense to give her a try. Let me say, "I could not have hired a better designer!" At our initial consultation, I explained that we would be gutting and restoring our main living space (kitchen, living room, master bedroom, bathroom). She attentively listened as I explained my vision for a comfortable, timeless look. From that point on, she helped to make that vision a reality (cabinets, hardware, furniture, flooring, accessories, etc., etc.) Allison is efficient, responsive, resourceful and friendly! I have future plans for additional projects and I look forward to working with her again. Thank you, Allison! You are a consummate professional. The absolute BEST!!

I would highly recommend Allison Ducharme for Interior Design. She turned three rooms (our family room, playroom and dining room) in my house into living spaces that I absolutely love! I had not decorated in years because I had young children, but Allison helped us pick furniture, curtains, accessories that could withstand the energy level of two boys. I am now proud to have people over to my house. She is prompt, thorough, detail oriented and always responsive to my questions and concerns. She is very professional and also accommodated our schedule, meeting on weeknights and Saturdays when necessary. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Allison and will call her again when I have projects in the future.

The listing in Walpole which you staged had multiple offers on the first day of showings....went way over list price! Again, thanks for all your help!

My husband and I were finishing up a sun room/kitchen project and just couldn't seem to "blend" our styling opinions! We decided to end the madness and hired Allison! She put such a fresh perspective on things and gave us a lot of new ideas. From the furniture layout to color scheme, artwork and finishing touches to our kitchen, Allison laid out all the finishing touches which added so much pop! We actually wish we hired her sooner! She is an absolute professional and was a pleasure to work with. We highly recommend her services!

I am making an in-law apartment in my basement. Allison came to my house and first met with me to discuss my wants and needs. She measured the space and provided me with a blueprint I can share with the contractors I hire. She modeled my kitchen and told me the cabinets she used and where to order them. She was professional, pleasant and timely with her revisions. This is the first time I used an interior designer and I was blessed to have found Allison. I plan to use her again once the project is underway. I was very pleased with Allison and would highly recommend.

I hired Allison to help me with the remodel of my downstairs family room. She was able to update my 80's family room to a light and pleasing color palette while staying within the confines of my budget. Everything from the carpets to the wall color to the window treatments reflect everything I hoped for and more. She was reliable and on time with all my deadlines. I would highly recommend Allison and will definitely use her again in the future!
★★★★★ E. Howe, Woburn MA
I have worked with Allison on multiple projects over the last five years including a living room, master bedroom, nursery, and den interior design, as well as re-design of a full master bathroom. She has worked with my family on two homes. We were thrilled that we were able to use all of our furniture from our first home in our new home when we moved, and the transition was seamless with her exceptional design work. She is professional and easy to work with. Her design sense is impeccable. I highly recommend Allison Ducharme to work with for your design needs.
Thanks Allison for all your hard work for us!

Allison was amazing. She has great taste and is so easy to work with. My home now looks so nice with all the finishing touches she put in it. She puts colors together so well. She also helped with my daughters new house in NJ. I showed her pictures of the house and she picked out colors for all the rooms, window treatments, designed floor plans for the furniture and even picked out furniture. We did this all remotely. She made it easy to do and is so accommodating with our busy schedules. I would highly recommend Allison and will definitely use her again. She made everything look so beautiful but lived in. I love my house and I have Allison to thank for that.

I was introduced to Allison when looking for some new high end furniture. As I am by no means an expert as to fashion and/or style, while walking around the showroom I met Allison. We spoke for a few minutes as she wanted to know what the look and "feel" that I was going for.
From the brief conversation she set out into the showroom to pick out a new bed set, Living Room, bar stools, rug, artwork and organized the delivery as well as come to my house to make sure everything was in its place. She then helped me select and order a few more pieces of furniture, a beautiful lamp, as well as accessories and you guessed it... she came back to my house to make sure everything fit just right and gave me the look and feel I was looking for.
All I can say is "wow". For over 20 years we have built custom homes for our clients and always had included the use of our designers. I for whatever reason did not up until now, and I cannot believe what an absolutely great job she did. I now have a home were I feel so comfortable in and is kind of a sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of owning a company.
I am so glad that I met Allison. For anyone wanting to make their home something truly special regardless of how big or small the budget. I cannot recommend Allison more. She is not just a consummate professional in her field...she is a great person as well.
Thank you so much!

I was so pleased with the end result of our new house that I wanted to make sure the finishing touches were just as beautiful. My daughter suggested that I hire a designer. Hiring Allison made all of our rooms come together beautifully at a very reasonable price. Allison helped me pick out the right color, style and size pillows, pictures, rugs and furniture. Allison also helped me use accessories that I had. In the long run I felt that I saved money by hiring her and I absolutely loved the end result. Anyone who visits is giving rave reviews.

Allison did a fantastic job helping us transition our first floor from a dumping ground for kids toys to a beautiful but also livable space for a family with young children. I would recommend her in a heartbeat.
★★★★★ Ellen Feeney, Medway MA
I hired Allison to help me redecorate my bathroom. I wanted a fresh, new clean look, with colors consistent with my home decor. I struggled with this bathroom trying to redecorate it myself for quite some time without any success.
Allison was quick to understand the look I wanted and was able to suggest colors and other items. She gave me tons of other suggestions about the house along the way and every one of them was great. I am very pleased with the finished result and already planning other projects with Allison's help.

I engaged Allison to help me create my Master Bedroom retreat after living with a "blah" uninspiring space for so long. Not only did she have great ideas for the space but she also was terrific to work with. She went above and beyond to find the things that would really "make" the space. What I found most amazing was the way she was able to extract and translate the look and feel I had in "my mind" and truly bring it to reality. That's a true talent! I now have a master bedroom that I absolutely love! Thanks Allison!
★★★★★ Susan Perry, Natick MA
I have worked with Allison as she has managed numerous venue design projects, and can say without hesitation that she is an incredibly talented individual who has an amazing eye for design. Allison "gets" her clients, is responsive to their needs and delivers amazing results every time. Her sense of style is definitive, her vision aspirational and the spaces that she has worked in clearly reflect her thoughtful approach. I would work with Allison again without hesitation!
