About the Firm

At AGI, we believe a space should have character and interest over perfection. Our clients are drawn to our engaging aesthetic, our ability to mix styles and provenance in a way that provides a beautiful, yet approachable space. Alison Giese Interiors serves the Northern Virginia and Washington DC metro area, with projects ranging from Brazil to Texas. Our work has been featured in National and Regional publications, and AGI was selected as one of the top 100 designers in the Washington DC area. We look forward to working with you!




I believe I bring a unique perspective to the table, because I've worn so many hats. I began my professional life as a Registered Dietitian working in medical sales, and then earned a Juris Doctorate. A life-changing move overseas with my young family directed my focus on design. I found my calling. After moving back to the United States, I earned a Certificate in Interior Decorating, and opened my boutique interior design firm, Alison Giese Interiors.

The aesthetic I bring to AGI is greatly influenced by my travels and experiences. From shopping trips to the Mexican artisan markets as a college student, to studying in Europe, to living in Brazil, my background has cultivated my ability to create a sense of place, with unique and worldly elements.

I love working with motivated and trusting clients to design a home that reflects their story. My work harmonizes clients' treasures with carefully selected pieces that create a balance between old and new, form and function. I truly delight in design, and I try to bring a contagious enthusiasm to all my projects, large and small.

Alison Giese Interiors provides worldly interiors in the Northern Virginia and Washington DC Metro Area.


Alison began her career with an extensive background in nutrition as well as law. Alison impresses on so many levels and not just in design. She is a certified interior designer, but also a fantastic wife and mother. Having traveled the globe and lived in an exotic locale, these experiences give her a deeper appreciation of a global style that encompasses texture, warmth and unique insight.
