Designer Q&A | Ashley Goforth

Today I am thrilled to share two new projects from one of my favorite interior designers, Houston-based Ashley Goforth. Ashley's award-winning work has graced the pages of countless design publications, recently placing her as a LUXE gold list recipient, and she's become a favorite around the blogosphere as well.

Her design aesthetic really resonates with my own; she perfectly balances textures and shape, masterfully mixes traditional and contemporary design, and utilizes the most soothing color palettes. I recently had the opportunity to interview Ashley and I am excited to share it with you in today's installment of Designer Q&A:

Nancy Marcus: How would you describe your personal style?

Ashley Goforth: Classic, elegant and liveable.

NM: What do you love most about your career?

AG: I love the process of developing relationships with people while creating a home that truly reflects their individuality.

NM: Who has been your greatest professional influence?

AG: My last boss, Renea Abbott of Shabby Slips, for her generosity in time and spirit taught me much more than just creating a beautiful room; it strengthened my character.

NM: Is there a consistent ‘starting point’ you have for each of these rooms, or do you approach every room differently each time?

AG: I definitely have a formula in which I develop my interiors, but I always start a room with an important element: a rug, piece of art or a prized fabric.

NM: I love the soft hues and neutral palettes in your current projects – would you say this is a key element in your designs?

AG: I gravitate personally towards neutral layered interiors that incorporate soft tones but I am also fairly pragmatic: so I like the ability to transition looks with ease, and neutral upholstery makes this a reality.


NM: What is your next design venture?

AG: I would love to have an e-commerce site where I can sell some of my custom creations to the mass public.  It would be a compilation of all my favorite things!

NM: How exciting! I think I speak for all of us when I say that will be something we would be looking forward to. Thank you Ashley for sharing these two stunning brand-new projects with us!
