Our Junior Designer Ashley, is a recent graduate from the Illinois Institute of Art-Schaumburg with her BFA in Interior Design. She interned with Interior Enhancement Group in 2015 during design school and continued with us after, becoming a Junior Designer in 2016. She is now living her dream of designing homes that client’s fall in love with. “When I was young I always spent my time re-arranging my room and watching my favorite designer Candice Olson, and that’s when I knew that this was my future”. My favorite aspect of design is using my rendering and 3D modeling skills to create rooms for the clients to visualize. I love getting the “wow” factor when they see and it makes me happy to know their excited about their project. When I’m not designing a room, my inner fashion girl comes out and I love to go shopping especially for shoes. Like Marilyn Monroe said “Give a girl the right pair of shoes and she’ll conquer the world”
