Have you ever gotten to a place in life where you feel like every part of your journey has led you to here? Well, that’s how Ashley feels about starting her business Sweet Southern Home & Design. Looking back on her experience, passions, talents and years of helping friends and family with their homes; the perfect next step would be to help others make their dream home a reality too. Ashley founded Sweet Southern Home and Design in 2018 with a focus in flipping old homes with good bones. She found her true passion was building beautiful spaces for clients and moved the business to solely interior design. Ashley loves to bring out a client’s personality and spirit in each space she designs. She loves to mix traditional elements with pops of color and fun. With a love for all things Southern culture, you can find her pulling inspirations from Southern architecture, antiques, and of course her favorite hues of blue and green. Ashley’s passion for creating beautiful spaces for her clients is evident in her attention to detail and management of each step of the process. When the space and design starts to come together, she often can’t contain her excitement and can often be found clapping and squealing to herself. When she’s not designing, she loves traveling and spending time with her husband and two young children.
