"As a child, interior designer Allison Taylor Hennessy ['04] liked to arrange things," reported StAugustine.com (5/6/12). Hennessy turned that organizational and creative talent to good use. In May 2012 she was on the top-10 list of "New Trads" in Traditional Home magazine, chosen from hundreds of submissions. The owner of Allison Hennessy Interior Design in Manhattan's West Village, she serves clients in New York and a number of other states, including Georgia, Connecticut, and Virginia. She has taken on a variety of projects, from redecorating entire houses to creating table scapes for special occasions, but she hopes in the near future "to design a space people seek out for relaxation and vacation. A real dream come true would be a beach resort or other destination."
