It's a family affair with Cheryl Womack, who has been an interior designer since 1985, and Alison Womack, who joined her mother's firm in 2000. The family's roots in residential design go back even further. "My husband's entire family was in the building business," Cheryl explains, "he built his first house when he was 16." After practicing law for 10 years, he too became a developer, with Cheryl working by his side. Their daughter, Alison, studied business and worked in radio and advertising, but was eventually drawn to a career in interior design. "I'd spent so much time around it, Alison says, "it was a natural progression."
Cheryl and Alison specialize in giving clients spaces that are both classically elegant, warm and livable. Their work has been recognized with invitations to participate in seven Atlanta Symphony Decorators' Show Houses, The Alliance Theatre Guild Christmas House and the Street of Dreams, for which Cheryl has served as both designer and judge.

They have been widely published both in books and magazines including Better Homes and Gardens, Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles and Traditional Homes.
They also appeared in a Fox television feature on mothers and daughters who worked together. "Our thinking is pretty much in line," says Alison, "and where it's not, we complement each other."
