“Talli and Sharon are truly the best at what they do! I knew the minute I met them that they were the perfect fit for my project. My husband and I began the process of building a custom home and shortly after the framing began, I knew we needed help and fast. Talli and Sharon met with me within the week and they poured their time into our project to keep it on track. They designed the fireplace, trim, crown moulding, stair tower, etc. They chose lighting, tile, counter tops, paint schemes, electrical placement, and much more. Then, it was onto furniture, fabric, window treatments, rugs, artwork, accessories, and much more. They are problem solvers. They are extremely professional and their attention to detail is what sets them apart. I trusted them with every aspect of designing my home. I would highly recommend them!”
“Exceeded expectations! A glowing recommendation from a friend led me to Allard + Roberts when facing the daunting task of downsizing and building a new house. From the first meeting Talli and Sharon listened and truly understood that while I wanted a cleaner more contemporary background; I had a life time of art, antiques and treasures from many travels that were important to be incorporated into the design. With an unerring eye for design, they made it happen…beautifully!
It has been a pleasure to work with the very organized and professional Allard + Roberts team. No detail is too small or overlooked. With complete confidence, I can highly recommend their services.”
“Working with Allard + Roberts was a wonderful experience that yielded a fantastic result. Upon purchasing a lot and hiring an architect, we needed an interior design firm that would help us to create our dream house. We engaged A+R to help with this task. A budget and time frame were established. A+R completed our project on time and within budget. They were true professionals and a pleasure to work with. They documented every step of the process and kept us advised. Their knowledge, expertise, follow up,and pleasant work style made the process fun. We ended up with a design that met our needs and looks fantastic. We feel that we were fortunate to have selected and been able to work with one of Asheville’s premiere design firms.”
“The best decision we made was to hire Allard + Roberts. We live out of state and building a new home can be very stressful. Much of the stress was relieved as we could count on them to make sight visits and make many design decisions. They were invaluable to us!! They streamlined the selection process and their organization was terrific. A binder with ALL design selections is provided, including pricing. Team work is a key component of their success.”
“Retro+Fit Design has worked with Allard + Roberts several times over the last few years. We consider them integral to the overall design of the home. They are very easy to work with and have wonderful design “eyes”. Allard + Roberts understand how light, color, and texture are integral in the designed space. They are able to come up with quick solutions when design conundrums arise. I would highly recommend Allard + Roberts.”
“We feel very fortunate to have found Allard + Roberts to guide us through the design of our Asheville mountain retreat. We were initially attracted to an on-line interview of Talli Roberts that shared her philosophy of listening to her clients and then guiding them tastefully. Their portfolio appealed to our aesthetic sense, so it was an easy decision. They used local resources to gain more insights into our taste, and then combined local, national and international sources for their recommendations on furnishing. They recognized that we wanted both fine art and quality handcrafts prominent in our home. They recommended some moderately priced items to fill some basic needs, thereby allowing more funds for the purchase of handcrafted items that moved the design to a much higher level. They recruited local artisans to do custom work, including the construction of a display unit for sculpture and a unique fireplace screen and tools for an irregularly shaped fireplace. They also steered us to some handcrafted furniture including barstools and office furniture that beautifully optimize space utilization and function. Their talent as designers is matched by their warmth and kindness. Our relationship with them doesn’t end with our home. A friendship and respect has developed that should last for years to come.”
