Lone Star House of Design | Allison Jaffe Interior Design



This is Lone Star House of Design a showcase of divine design from the great State of Texas featuring Allison Jaffe, an Austin designer whose cerebral approach to design is nothing short of genius. We talk about the psychology of design quite often on the podcast because it isn’t easy to understand what someone really wants the design to ‘feel’ like. Allison didn’t start as a designer, to the contrary, she started by pursuing the sciences, specifically, a degree in neuropsychology from the University of Pittsburgh. You are going to hear how Allison modified her pursuit from the scientific to the creative and used her education to drill down with clients to reach their subconscious desires as it relates to the manner in which they wish to live. Sigmund Freud said, “The mind is like an iceberg, it floats with one-seventh of its bulk above water.” To me, this is one of the true assets of interior designers. The truly talented ones have different means and methods for discovering what the client’s true desire is. We all know clients that have said one thing only to later discover they mean something entirely different.

Speaking of discovering true desires…you have needs too. Find some inspiration and new perspectives so you can see, in real time how the industry is changing so quickly.

The first episode featured an amazing designer and a really good friend. Tracy Martin Taylor is the principal designer behind Eleven 11 Design.

Cindy Aplanalp-Yates is the Principal of Chairma Design Group, an award-winning design firm in Houston. Cindy goes into the game a bit later than most. The family came first, then the business. Cindy and I sat down at the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Las Vegas to talk design, trade shows, and the uniqueness of Texans which makes designing in Texas so much fun. This is Cindy Aplanalp-Yates.

I had a great chat with Allison Crawford, founder and principal designer of her eponymous firm Allison Crawford Design in addition to HOTELette, a design/ vacation-rental company. Allison is a highly praised, Austin based designer with a truly unique background and a story about design, business, and real estate. Allison is active in design and real estate investment. She is both a creator and entrepreneur. I truly enjoyed this conversation with Allison and I hope you do as well. Allison is a master creator who blends and bends style to create livable luxury.
