We did a major renovation, gutting a kitchen, removing some walls, adding a mudroom and pantry and a redesign of a great room wall with massive brick.
Ashleigh was with us from the start, providing high level review and commentary on architect designs and contractor proposals. She completely designed the kitchen from scratch since we gutted.
Kitchen: I am seriously in love with how functional it all is while still looking great. I was apprehensive about some choices on paper but she had a logic that was solid and once they were in, I knew she was right (which is why I need a professional)!
Laundry Room: she put up some nice grey cabinets with this great tile. Everyone loves the tile when they step into that room.
The wall of brick: I’m not sure I could adequately describe how ugly that wall was before she touched it. She removed some brick and lightened what remained, but the masterpiece was the newly designed hearth and mantel. It really changed the room significantly. Couldn’t be happier.
Window treatments: when we bought the house I failed to notice that there were no window treatments on the entire first floor, 13 windows. Ashleigh was very patient with me as I dealt with the sticker shock of being a first time window treatment buyer.
Overall, Everything came together well and whenever there were bumps (as there always are), she was a calming voice of reason. We started working together February 2017 and wrapped up this project in late summer with a slight delay (on my part) for the window treatments. We are now getting ready to work with her on a new project and looking forward to seeing what she comes up with.

We hired Ashleigh to oversee the renovations of our home in Golden, CO. She came HIGHLY recommended by a trusted friend in the Denver area who has used her several times in the past. Let me tell you, she did not disappoint.Ashleigh was polite, responsive and accommodating. She really listened to us and our vision for the home but added her own touches and direction both from the architectural standpoint and the interior design standpoint. She turned our home from an average mountain home into something straight out of Architectural Digest on-time and on-budget. She was equal parts project manager, interior designed, architect and general contractor - she was highly involved in every phase of the construction and we felt she was pouring the same time and energy into our home as she would her own. Let me be clear: hiring Ashleigh was the SINGLE greatest decision we made.

In early 2014, my wife and I purchased an 1896 Victorian with significant deferred maintenance. We were overwhelmed not only by the house's potential, but mostly by imagining what it would take to achieve it.
With no prior experience to draw from, we decided to complete a major renovation including a full remodel of the kitchen, mudroom and both bathrooms in the house, as well as a small addition. After almost a full year of design, planning, permitting, and construction, we are thrilled with the finished product - and there is no chance we could have such an amazing home without Ashleigh's phenomenal work!
Ashleigh was hired for a wide range of duties including:
-Drawing layouts for reconfigured spaces
-Specifying all finishes, fixtures, and paint colors
-Selecting furniture for several rooms of the house
From the first day we met Ashleigh at the house, she shared our vision of updating a rather unique old home, while maintaining the original character and charm. Ashleigh was able to do what we could not - stay on top of the details from start to finish, to ensure that our vision came to reality. She is knowledgeable and thoughtful when it comes to historical design, taking care to prescribe updates with consideration to the age of the home. Her responsiveness throughout the project was very timely, and she always offered multiple options so that we would have a consistent role in making key decisions.
As a designer, Ashleigh has a trained eye and detailed knowledge of the nuances of period specific design and construction. As a critical part of the renovation team, Ashleigh was a pleasure to work with, exhibiting strong communication skills and honest opinions related to cost, functionality, and aesthetics.
We worked with multiple contractors throughout our project and the only one who was truly irreplaceable was Ashleigh. We get compliments on so many areas of the house, mostly due to Ashleigh's effort.

When people walk into our house they are amazed with our style!
The funny things is that my husband's style is MidCentury Modern and mine is Traditional with a Shabby Chic edge, so it was always hard to agree on something, but Ashleigh made it possible. She was able to bring the best of these worlds into our place, in a way that is just right and beautiful. We are so thankful for her work, she is easy to work with, respects your budget and understands your needs.
We loved working with her!

As a general contractor I appreciate having a designer that understands construction. Ashleigh is not only a very good, detail orientated designer, she also gets how things go together. Ashleigh has a calm and confident approach to any project with just the right amount of take charge attitude She brings her own style and design since to the table but also listens to and works with her clients needs and ideas. I am happy to recommend Ashleigh to anyone looking for a great designer.
