Entering her third decade creating elegant, livable interiors, Georgia designer and tastemaker Ashley Holt brings a lifelong passion for beautiful objects, textiles and fine art to her eponymous Columbus firm. As Ashley puts it, creating a beautiful space is only a starting point; meaningful spaces that reflect the inhabitants are the ones that truly stand the test of time. Thus her goal in every aspect of a design is to create a personal space that is not only lovely to behold, but reflective of the people within.  This guiding principle permeates her many published projects across the south: A room is always best when inspired by something a client is passionate about. Ashley seeks to leave every room as though it has evolved naturally over time, not created in an instant. 


A graduate of the University of Georgia with degrees in interior design and public relations, Ashley's passion for gracious living extends well beyond the confines of her practice. She has contributed her time and efforts to many causes for preservation, the arts, and disabled persons, particularly with her flair for events and fundraising. She splits her time between Columbus and the gulf coast village of Rosemary Beach, with her husband John and three children.
