Alison Hodd – Owner

Alison-Hodd-Profile-Pic-2Alison is a Mom of two and a wife of one. When Alison launched CAI in 2010 she had two big ideas: find a way to make her love of interior design her profession and create a home-like work environment. Considering her home’s dining room table served as headquarters for several years, and now the new office at 33 Shepherd Road hosts a dual purpose dining room table/boardroom table – she has certainly accomplished that. With the newly acquired space comes the opportunity to welcome clients and other professionals into her office. When Alison is not designing your home or office you’ll find her shuttling her girls around to singing and dancing programs, tap dancing (literally and figuratively) or unwinding with family at her home or cottage.


Dianna Knight – Senior Designer


Dianna Knight has always been passionate about art and design.   With an urge to create, she often made her own clothes and more recently designed jewelry.  She also found beauty in mathematics; the elegant proofs and logical processes and became a high school mathematics teacher in Peel, for 31 years.  She found working with students extremely rewarding.  Dianna joined Catherine Alison Interiors in 2014 after graduating from the Interior Decorating program at Sheridan College.  As a design professional, she believes you can create a beautiful space that truly reflects your style and meets your needs. As famed designer William Sofield says “Design must live as well as it looks”.
