Connecticut and NYC based interior designer Alison Kist believes that people don’t just live in their home, they form a relationship with it. Her style is eclectic, a casually elegant mix of old and new along with the quirky, the whimsical and pieces that tell a story. What she creates is a home that tells the owner’s story, the best sort of home.
