Cushion Source™ is pleased to feature interior designer Ashley Gilbreath, founder of Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design and owner of PARISH Shoppe, as our guest blogger this month. Gilbreath previously worked with famed designer Richard Keith Langham in New York City before she went on to perfect her craft in the commercial, hospitality, and residential design industries with numerous clients across the U.S. Gilbreath’s aesthetic vision produces timeless design traditions of blending old and new elements into sophisticated works of art. Her unique perspective results in spaces that are both relaxed and versatile.
Located in the charming Cloverdale Village of Montgomery, Ala., PARISH Shoppe also houses her custom design studio. Gilbreath recently loaned us her studio to use as a backdrop for a Cushion Source photo shoot. During the shoot, she was kind enough to share some of her trade secrets for decorating outdoors with custom cushions and pillows.
