Architecture and Design

Growing up with a mother who worked in interior design conditioned me to take interest in the art of home decor. She taught me the principals of Feng Shui before it was popular in western culture, made coffee tables out of old doors, and painted or sculpted every work of art in our home. She has greatly influenced my taste in art and always encouraged a second look from another perspective. When I was on tour in Chicago, she came to visit and show me around the town where she grew up. As we walked around downtown, she pointed out each extraordinary building, naming it’s architect, when it was built, and what kinds of columns held the structures together. So much history.

I’ve always dreamed about designing my own home. As a child, I would spend time in the classroom doodling images of the house I would one day build. Of course, a trampoline in the bedroom is no longer a priority (remember “Big”?), but a treehouse would be lovely! Of course, there’s no true need for any of these things, but I’m a firm believer that, if you’re going to build something, it might as well be beautiful. Why not use your imagination? So many possibilities…

View beautiful bedrooms, super sexy bathrooms, artistic libraries, kitchens, indoor slides and gardens at Pinterest. Ah, to have a flower, herb and fruit garden!

BEAUTIFUL BEDROOMS:

I wasn’t kidding about the treehouse…

  1. Ashley, I, too, love the interior photos!! We are looking forward to seeing you in White Collar tonight–already have it set to “record”. Glad that your mother posted it on Facebook. Haven’t seen you since you sang happy birthday to your grandmother in Cincy–at lease “several” years ago. Beat of luck and good fortune to you–if you are ever in/near Sarasota, Fl. let us know. You’re always welcome! XX Mary Ann (Linton) Fuller
