"Ashton did a wonderful job furnishing a new condo that we recently purchased. It was completely empty and had to have everything from beds, dressers, tables, chairs, rugs, lighting, artwork and accessories. We live in another state and were not present for any part of the process. All communication was done via email, text and phone calls. Ashton was an excellent communicator and everything was completed to our satisfaction. She met all the deliveries and the installation was perfect. She also had to coordinate with a contractor that was doing some work at the same time and this went well. When we arrived, after six months away, the condo was completely furnished and ready for us. It is beautiful and comfortable. Ashton helped to integrate our personal tastes with the design aesthetics of the area. I appreciated that Ashton was flexible when I wanted to change direction on several occasions. We couldn't be more pleased and would recommend her to others."

"We hired AshtonForDesign LLC to design the interior of our new home in Louisiana. She met with us to learn about our style preferences (transitional) and she wowed us every step of the way with her spot on design suggestions and wonderful use of color. She negotiated the purchase of 9' cypress pocket doors for use as our front doors and helped us create an elegant serving bar with an illuminated tortoise glass countertop. A room off the front foyer was originally to be used as a study and she envisioned it as a library and designed the shelving and lighting for the space. It's one of our favorite rooms in the home. Ashton selected every fixture, cabinet, appliance, countertop and found a unique great looking bed for the master suite and terrific furnishings for the great room. She designed dream closets and found an outstanding tomato-red hexagon tile that perfectly compliments our vintage chambers range and custom kitchen cabinets. Ashton was highly responsive to our needs and we whenever we emailed her with a design question she replied right away. When the construction was completed, she came and arranged the furnishings and artfully hung paintings. AshtonForDesign was a pleasure to work with and we would not hesitate to recommend her services to others."

"Ashton is a dream to work with! Owning a boutique rental company I found all my efforts were exhausted in creating and laying out our warehouse, but left a lack of energy to focus on my office, something I've not had in several years. I wanted a space that reflected my personal style, that helped hide storage shelves full of props, and bring life into an otherwise corporate feeling office with drop ceilings and carpet we couldn't remove. By rearranging the space to better utilize the room and create a better flow, she was able to create a reading nook that's turned into my favorite corner of my office. When she was sourcing, she knew exactly what my style was and was quick to text photos of finds she thought would work well based on what my needs were. She was also very responsive and answered my questions in a timely manner when it came time to piece everything together. I'm no longer embarrassed about my corporate office turned boho chic and cannot thank Ashton enough!"

"Ashton is an excellent interior designer. She has a great eye and knows very quickly what will work in a space and what will not. She is efficient, timely, and wise beyond her years! I recommend her to anyone who is looking to completely remodel a home or apartment or simply update a room."

"Ashton is exciting to work with. She's creative, good at problem solving, taps into terrific resources, meets her deadlines, and is both kind and professional through it all. She helped us pull together our condo where I had become completely stuck. Her instincts were on-target and among other things, she designed an installed a work space for my home office that i adore and use everyday. We have a new remodel project lined up in Hood River, and Ashton was the first person I called. She'll be with us every step of the way as we transform a small second home."
