    You are very lucky to have found Ashleigh Underwood! She is wonderful to work with and delivers a great result, within budget and on time. I relied on her expertise, organizational skills and design sense to help me complete a major redecoration of my home in California. I am thrilled with her work. Ashleigh listened to what I wanted to accomplish and proceeded to present me full storyboards for each room, including pricing, finishes and samples of fabric. What she couldn't readily find, she had made and customized to my specifications. I highly recommend Ashleigh for any design job where creativity, quality and panache are appreciated.

    Ashleigh did a great job with our bathroom. She was professional, knowledgeable, and really innovative. We had a small space to deal with in our bathroom and she was great at coming up with a beautiful and functional design while addressing all of our needs. Everybody that comes over really loves the innovative layout. She did a great job!! We love our bathroom and would definitely use her again.

    Ashleigh is amazing, she comes in and really listens to what you want & need, then is able to translate that into something that you never would have thought of. My Living Room which was a nightmare of awkward proportions, an unusual number of doors & windows, and could not seem to fit furniture in an attractive way was her canvas. Ashleigh was able to come in and immediately figure out how to situate things, what furniture would best fit in my space, and made everything beautiful. She worked well with my Husband and I, understanding each of our needs and creating compromise when we though we had none. We also went shopping with her and she was incredibly competent when it came to educating us as to why and where to save & spend our budget. I never got so many compliments on how my place looked and I loved living in that space! In the end, it was so us!

    "I've known Ashleigh since "at the school bus stop" was a place you met people. First we shared a back fence, then weekly sleepovers, then travels to visit Ashleigh's family in Maine and the USVI. But never clothes, damn her Amazonian genes. And then we fell out of touch for the better part of 15 years. When we reconnected as adults, my introspective, imaginative childhood friend was still very much present, though leavened with the experiences -- both positive and difficult -- of globe-crossing relocations and the friends and loves come and gone with them. She has put in the work, y'all, to have not only an amazing eye for design, but also an amazing ear for what people need. And it's rooted in her hard-fought reflections on what she herself needs to be her best self. I work in sports, so the value of a coach is evident to me: everyone from pee wee players just starting out to the most elite athletes in the world have coaches. Sometimes they teach the basics; other times they're thought partners on long-term strategy. Beyond the structure and clear win-loss outcomes of sports, the need for coaches somehow gets squishier, and voicing a desire for one can end up feeling like an admission of defeat. But it's not. Ashleigh makes me better, not because she's better than me -- because she wants to see me succeed. And so she asks me questions that don't occur to me, holds up mirrors I forget existed. But I still can't wear her clothes, confound it all."

    ...We were looking for comfort and class to meet form and function seamlessly. Ms. Underwood not only understood the direction we wanted to go, but also the speed at which the rebuild was going. She did a great select the right materials for our vision as well as our budget. Ms. Underwood's presentation materials were accepted outright and we are very pleased with the final result. We are delighted to recommend Ashleigh. She did a wonderful job for us and we are confident she can do a great job for you.

    I am pleased to be able to write a testimonial for Ms. Ashleigh Underwood, a talented and vivacious Interior Designer...Shortly before meeting Ashleigh, I had received 5 paintings from two different artists with two different styles, that were to be hung in my boutique. It was a challenge for me to to decide exactly where to hang the paintings, so that they would compliment the space, showcase the artists, and at the same time, not distract too much attention from the merchandise that I am selling. Ashleigh was able to use her keen sense of placement and sharp eye for design and advise me on where, and how the paintings should be hung. Needless to say, my boutique looks beautiful, and under her guidance, the paintings served their purpose and are a lovely accent in my space. I would recommend Ms. Underwood to any colleague, and look forward to working with Ashleigh again in the future.

    I highly recommend using Ashleigh Underwood for your design needs. I was fortunate in working with her for our customer in Calabasas whom came to her with no clear vision or idea of what to do, but she was able to make something out of nothing and create something beautiful and perfect. I am more than pleased with the quality of her work. She is very talented, creative, thoughtful and goes above and beyond to satisfy her clients. It was a pleasure working with her and I will definitely work with her again in the future whenever she is in Southern California!
