Ashley Whittaker- a-ma-zing designer!

Brooke and I have always adored and admired the interiors that designer Ashley Whittaker creates!  We especially love her use of color, texture, and patterns throughout each space.  Here are a few of our favorite spaces she has designed!


" 'I tried to use some serious furniture shapes and a few antiques in the living room of this house, but I wanted to have fun with the fabrics and color,' says Ashley Whittaker. A custom sofa is covered in a Brunschwig and Fils Avocado linen. The painting above the sofa is by Sally Michel. Slipper chairs are covered in Vizcaya in Celery by AM Collections. Faux-tortoise coffee table is from Todd Romano. Curtains are Granada in Robins Egg by AM Collections. Mantel mirror by Ashley Whittaker. Natura sisal rug from Stark. " 


"At the far end of the living room, a pair of armchairs from Luther Quintana are covered in Dundee Hickory from Clarence House. The ottoman fabric is Nairobi in a custom color by China Seas through Quadrille. The mirror over the mantel is designed by Ashley Whittaker." 


" 'The white chairs and coral chandelier make a big mahogany table feel lighter than it is,' says Whittaker. 'The contrasts make it work. I consider that a universal rule in decorating.' Turquoise on tinted linen wall fabric from Quadrille. 1940s Gustavian-style chairs in coral linen by Travers. Chandelier, Mecox Gardens. Rug, Natura Sisal from Stark."


We love the simple lines of the console against the busy Quadrille wall fabric.  We also love the unexpected use of the color combination: turquoise, hot pink, and white. What a strong impact they make together!


"The sunroom provides an immediate punch of color and sunshine, which makes it a cheerful sitting room in the winter. Curtains are Potella Print Coral from China Seas. The large wicker bench in front of the sofa is from Bialecky Brothers."


We love the David Hicks rug paired with the white garden stools from West Elm.


We are always drawn to the palette of blue and white for a bedroom.  Ashley created such an amazing retreat with this space.  We love the LEONTINE LINENS!!!

Who wouldn't want to put on their makeup here!
