Pennsylvania Designer Aims for Total Client Wellbeing

Sallie Smith intends the effects of her interior decorating to reach far beyond the usual measures.

¨My goal is to provide the finest personal service that enlivens the senses, instills wellbeing and fulfills even the unexpressed wishes and needs of my clients,¨ said the owner of Sallie Smith Decor and Decorating, of Allentown, Pa.

Smith founded the company in 2004 as a turnkey decor and decorating company with full access to any type of home accessory. ¨From windows to pillows, kitchens to bedrooms, if you want it or need it we can make it, find it, create it or hide it. Prices are very reasonable, as well.¨

According to Smith, there is no reason to ¨be a slave to department store trends¨ when you can express your own style with her interior fashions. ¨From classic to whimsical, we can help you achieve just the right look in your living space.¨

However, Smith adds she is happy to work with any budget and is capable of creating personalized treatments with off-the-shelf materials ¨that will look like you spent a lot more for it than you really did.¨

Smith offers a free consultation, during which she will meet you at your home or place of business, measure, help you choose colors, discuss fabric, and take photos of your space.

She uses innovative design software to offer a visual representation of how your project will appear at completion. She can also use the program to help with room planning, including downsizing as a result of a remodel.

Smith, who holds bachelor´s and master´s degrees, is a member of the Window Coverings Association of America and the International Furnishings and Design Association. Her work has been featured in Window Fashions Vision Magazine.
