Studio Ashby: Home, Art, Soul


Growing up, interior designer Sophie Ashby cultivated a passion for modern art, fine antiques, and bold color. After studying art history and interior design, she launched her London-based design studio in 2014 at the age of twenty-five with just one client—and has been cementing her status as a tour de force ever since.

This celebratory clothbound volume presents the designer’s signature style through a selection of extraordinary projects. Readers will discover vibrant, rich, whimsical interiors and Ashby’s aesthetic brimming with bright hues, quirky shapes, glamorous touches, eclectic materials, and inspiration-laden artworks. Ashby’s private family home and the studio’s showroom at the striking eighteenth-century Blewcoat School display her myriad influences and unique artwork-driven creative process. Projects including a Parisian apartment in the Saint Germain neighborhood, town houses in London, and a San Francisco residence spotlight her knack for breathing new life into historic spaces. With a foreword penned by Architectural Digest editor in chief Amy Astley, this indispensable debut provides a fascinating look into the world of one of today’s brightest talents in interior design
