Studio Ashby: Home Art Soul

The highly anticipated debut from one of today’s most influential tastemakers in contemporary interior design, published on the occasion of her studio’s tenth anniversary.

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.
