Alli Preston, Allied ASID
Alli has always been passionate about interior spaces, beginning with the home. Growing up, she loved that the residential design could provide a powerful expression of oneself and directly impact the way others felt while being there. Once she realized she could help others utilize design in that same way for all types of spaces, whether public or private, she knew interior design was the obvious career choice.
Alli attended the Fay Jones School of Architecture + Design at the University of Arkansas, where she graduated with a Bachelor of Interior Design and a minor in religious studies. During her time at the university, she had opportunities to travel across the U.S. and study abroad in Mexico. Her exposure to architecture in such varied locations made her appreciate the unique cultural, historical, and religious influences on design. More than that, it enhanced her understanding of how influential architecture itself can be in shaping the experience and memory of places. Alli strives to use interior design as a way to enhance those experiences and express the local context of a space in a meaningful way.
During her free time, you can probably find Alli at Bible study, drinking boba tea, or hanging out with friends. She also enjoys playing sports (anything from soccer to sand volleyball) and reading fantasy novels or books on Christianity, religion, and philosophy.
