Fun traditional interior design

FR Review:
Ashley Whittaker is that rare interior designer who can piece together classic elements to create a space that feels fresh, joyful and full of life. Technically her milieu is “traditional,” but it’s a fun, livable version of the style, where a splash of vivid color is just right, and a leopard-print ottoman can feel at home. These are rooms with multi-generational appeal: Visiting parents will be comfortable, friends will be wowed by the style and kids can spill things (as they do) without causing a bank-busting disaster. Whittaker’s clients applaud her taste and her spirit, saying that she has an “incredible work ethic,” and that she will gently nudge them towards exploring new ideas. One wanted a brown lacquer wall, but at Whittaker’s suggestion, they tried a pattern instead–the result was fabulous, a successful experiment.

Unsurprisingly for someone whose work is informed by a classic American style, Whittaker got her professional start working at Ralph Lauren, curating special events. Satisfying a lifetime design impulse, from there she went on to a position at Markham Roberts. Whittaker currently staffs three assistants and a bookkeeper, but handles all of the key decisions herself. Clients say that Whittaker is active and involved, and that she is “always available” by phone.

Whittaker charges a straight design fee, then a markup on product. Her costs are definitely on the higher side of the scale, but the quality is off the charts, say appreciative clients. Above all, they marvel at her ability to make their homes simultaneously “more beautiful and more livable.”
