Maybe you’re a Pinterest addict—glazed eyes, parted lips, and swooning over the click-worthy neutral elements of immaculate interior design all over your pinboards. Maybe you’re just into the thrill of the caffeinated hunt on a sleepy Saturday. Whatever your poison, you’re a girl on a mission: meshing gorgeous interior design with your budget. ??Enter Ashley Gilbreath. A Baton Rouge native, Ashley now designs for top clientele and spaces across the Southeast from her flagship Montgomery, Ala. studio. With a knack for blending old and new elements into sophisticated practicality, we knew coming to her would be like going to that good ‘ole “interior designer friend” we all have. Except, ya know, the one that’s worked on some of Alabama’s premiere restaurants and with famed Southern architects like McAlpine-Tankersley.
Ashley and her team—Amanda Reynolds and Emi Price—pulled together a list of five splurges and five steals for your home:
Splurge - Tara Shaw Maison Italian Mirrored Sconce with Applique $1,715
Steal - Bliss Studio Trumeau Candle Sconce $357

To get Ashley’s look, check out Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design’s side project in Montgomery: peering out onto the main street of the sustainable Hampstead community is PARISH, a fresh, unique home store that brings together the best of Southern traditions at an affordable price point. So whether you’re trekking back home after a weekend centered around Jordan-Hare stadium, or coming back from beaches after a long Labor Day weekend, quaint Hampstead and PARISH are worth the stop in Montgomery. Because as charming as Pinterest is, sometimes there is nothing like a creative shopping experience to offer a dose of design inspiration.
