No extra space? No problem. Karen Alpert, blogger at Baby Sideburns, has teamed up with us to show you how to design a multi-purpose living room that’s both functional and stylish. If a children’s playroom integrated with your main living space sounds like a recipe for chaos, you’ll be happily surprised by Karen’s tips and results.
When it’s time to create a fun, functional and vibrant home office space, we know exactly who to call. Amber, also known as PreppyBohemianAtHome on Instagram, is the expert on all things bohemian, so we asked her to partner with us to create a bohemian home office. As it happens, Amber’s original home office was cluttered and dysfunctional and she was over it. Working together we were able to create the workspace of Amber’s dreams.
You’ve seen her photography on our Facebook and Instagram pages many times, because we love how Robin Long, AKA CoastalCraftyMama, has mastered the art of combining two styles – modern farmhouse and coastal cottage – for truly warm and genuine results. It turns out that our fangirling is mutual! Robin is a super fan of Ashley HomeStore and became one of our Ashley Insiders, jumping at every opportunity to collaborate with us. Now, we’re thrilled to announce that our friendship has taken another leap forward with an exclusive partnership.
Ashley HomeStore has teamed up with creative and fabulous Nadia, creator of the YouTube channel “StyledBy Casanova”. Nadia began her journey as an interior designer this year, and we are so happy to be a part of her new adventure. For Nadia, having plenty of space for entertaining, playing games and relaxing is very important, which is why we decided to partner with her to redecorate her second living room space.

My name is Jenny Caspers and I live in a suburb of the Twin Cities in Minnesota. I left my office job to become a stay at home mom when I had my daughter. Nearly two years later, I decided I wanted to do something creative, hopefully for a living. That’s when I created my Instagram page @acleanprismlifeOpens in a new window and started taking photos of my home.
I had never used a camera before, but I found myself loving the process of styling something, photographing it, editing it to my standards and ultimately putting it out to the world. It was so rewarding! I came up with the name “A Clean Prism Life” based on my love of keeping things clean and fresh, and reflecting that like a prism in all aspects of my life and outwards for others.
Little by little, my confidence grew. I participated in “decor hashtag games” where photos “win contests” on Instagram and are featured. Pretty soon my photos were being noticed by businesses, like Ashley Home Store, whose decor items I featured in my photos. What an honor!
Through this experience, I have met an overwhelming amount of incredible people in the decor community and it has changed my life dramatically to be a part of such an amazing network. It has inspired me to keep growing and coming up with new ideas.
My website acleanprismlife.comOpens in a new windowis where I feature a portfolio of my work and offer services like Interior Decorating, Product Photography & Product Promotion, and Photo Editing. I have become much more involved on Instagram and am a Program Director for Decor Newbies Unite, a four week Instagram training course my friend Kelly @homewithkellyOpens in a new windowand I created that teaches people how to organically and effectively grow their accounts, get better exposure, network and more. I also teach a photo editing class and provide mentoring on Instagram as well. I am very passionate about helping others gain the confidence to pursue what they are wanting to do.
My style is a mix of Modern and Modern Farmhouse – I gravitate towards white, black, blue, wood, greenery, clean lines, bold statements, and general simplicity. I believe in mixing the old with the new – keeping items we hold near and dear to our hearts, and displaying them in a thoughtful way while maintaining balance in a room. My goal is to create spaces that are ultimately serene, welcoming, and interesting to the eye. Some of my favorite designers are Nate Berkus and Studio McGee.

You may have seen this word scattered around your Pinterest page, or maybe you heard it mentioned on HGTV. The hype about this word is real. The word is “Hygge”. Hygge is a design style that creates an atmosphere that evokes feelings of coziness, warmth and ease.

We are so excited to announce a gorgeous living room reveal from our friend, Emily Helm of Life With EmilyOpens in a new window. She has blown us away with this beautiful design, plus offered helpful tips for creating a cohesive space with your significant other.
Emily has mastered mixing muted neutral tones, different metals and mercury glass accents to achieve an elegant space that they can still sit in and enjoy.
We love how Emily styled her sofa with a pop of velvet teal pillows. A bold accent color that works for both parties is the perfect way to complete a cohesive space.
