About Me


Ashley is a lover of good food, great wine and cute dogs. I started this journey as a small-town-girl not knowing exactly what to expect- but have gotten so much joy in sharing my experiences along the way. After earning a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design, I worked my tail off trying to make a name for myself in a very cut-throat business. After years of working as a full-time designer, I’m switching my focus and trying a new approach. Follow along on my journey as my husband, two dogs and I take the plunge- moving from the hustle and bustle of Washington, DC to a 60 acre tree farm in the middle-of-no-where Ohio.


Actually Ashley is a lifestyle blog that began as a creative outlet for me in 2015. It started as an outlet to let my family see photos of our DIY home projects as we renovated our home just outside of Washington, DC. Quickly growing, the blog now features home décor ideas, entertaining inspiration, DIY projects in our new Ohio home, wedding planning advice and fashion reviews. I still work part time as a interior designer from our home. If you want to see more- you can check out my E-Design Services here and view my professional portfolio here!
