    Working with Alison at Johnston Home was seamless. She looked at the space we wanted to change and had a great idea which we immediately adopted. Alison is easy to work with, she listens to what is most important to the client and then generates great choices. She was able to blend our favorite antique pieces with new updated pieces to create a warm new living space that the whole family enjoys. Alison stays within your budget, is timely, creative and really responsive.
