west elm feature | ashley lauren design studio

Meet Ashley Lauren Snyder. "Interior designer and stylist by education, graphic designer and artist by passion." She's a girl who likes to dream big, create, explore, serve others, smile, travel, cook, adventure, learn new things, meet new people, make friends, nourish relationships and enjoy quality time with her husband. She is all around creative and GOOD. Someone you just want to be around.

Together with her engineer husband, Jacob, Ashley relocated from Joplin, Missouri recently and yes you saw their hunt for the perfect abode on hgtv's house hunters! The Tulsa creative community has been over the moon to welcome her into our little family.

I had the pleasure of photographing Ashley and her d-r-e-a-m-y home for the WEST ELM design blog front+main, which debuted earlier this week. (Cue champagne and fireworks!) Here I'm sharing images of Ashley at home in her inspiring studio (ahem "where the magic happens") plus Ashley at work using a super cool and messy painting technique. I can't imagine a more perfect studio nor one better suited for creating. The loft space already had great bones and abundant natural light, which are enhanced by Ashley's fabulous paint color choices, well-placed practical furnishings, bold gallery wall and so much more.
