Allison Bloom is the principal of Dehn Bloom Design. Allison's interiors are both liveable and inspiring, often favoring neutral tones, layers of texture and large-scale, colorful artwork. Allison creates engaging rooms which are visually and emotionally compelling. Natural light, good proportions, and elegant sculptural pieces are all key components in her designs. Her interiors often combine raw materials with more refined elements, and include the interplay between natural wood and metal pieces with dramatic lines. Allison has designed many of the eye-catching furniture pieces in her interiors by combining simple sculptural elements with lustrous, glossy materials.
Allison grew up frequenting commercial and residential construction sites with her father. As a Seattle native, natural light and a connection to the outdoors feature prominently in Allison's work. On a personal level, Allison has relocated with her family several times, and through the repeated experience of turning house into home, she has learned that good design --meaning both beauty and functionality-- is vital to a peaceful, practical, inspiring and enjoyable home. Allison has worked in design at Remodelista and Big Daddy's, where she was an editorial contributor and a stylist respectively. She worked in management consulting at Bain & Company and brand marketing at Blue Nile. Allison has a B.S. from Stanford University. She has renovated two of her own homes and is a mother of three children.
