Her sensitivity to the area’s indigenous vernacular is instrumental in creating a finished product where the client can truly enjoy the quintessential attributes that drew them to the East End.
Allison Babcock was first exposed to exemplary architectural beauty growing up in the shadows of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello in Charlottesville, Virginia. By the age of five, her dollhouse boasted a curated design palette that was the envy of the neighborhood children. She graduated from the University of Richmond, while also interning at Richmond design house Nan McVey Interiors. In 1992 she became a design assistant at New York City based, R. Brooke Ltd. She spent the next eight years as a senior project manager at the venerable Cullman and Kravis, Inc. There she worked with many renowned architects and was responsible for several projects that were published in Architectural Digest. Just as important, her eleven years in New York City were spent building an invaluable collection of contacts in the city’s upholstery, lighting, and antique trades.
In 2003, Allison and her husband relocated full-time to Sag Harbor, enabling her to focus her creativity on the East End and enjoy this special part of the world year-round. When not designing, she enjoys travel, gourmet cooking, yoga, her dogs, and being a mother to two great girls.
