Ashley Avery, Kitchen and Bath Designer

Ashley was born and raised in Chicago, IL, and has worked in high-end residential design since graduating from William Riley Harper College in 2010. At Harper College Ashley received her degree in Interior Design specializing in Kitchen and Bath. While attending college, Ashley served as the National Kitchen and Bath Association Student Chapter President, allowing her to learn the industry firsthand from a professional’s stand-point.

“What I love most about the industry is the impression you can have on ones way of life. It’s not just an interior, it’s a reflection of you,” says Ashley.

Ashley Avery is a 2013 recipient of the National Kitchen and Bath Association 30 Under 30 Award, which was voted on amongst her fellow members of the NKBA. She was honored as one of thirty up and coming young designers to watch. Ashley makes her mark every day, not only on her clients, but also the on future of the design industry.

Ashley was raised on her grandparent’s farmland which makes it understandable that her favorite style of design is modern with vintage charm. Ashley also receives inspiration through her clients’ lives. She sees every new project as an opportunity to make sure each clients’ home suits them and their lifestyle best.

“There is something to say about a well-balanced design. I enjoy mixing unique styles, colors, and architecture into my clients’ homes. Some see mixing styles as a challenge, I see it as a balanced art piece.”
