Ashley is the founder of Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design, established in Montgomery, Alabama in 2007.
She previously worked with fame designer, Richard Keith Langham, in New York City and then went on to hone her talents in the hospitality, commercial, and residential design industries with clients across the U.S.
A Baton Rouge native, Ashley returned to the South with her husband, Barrett, and settled in to Montgomery’s historic Old Cloverdale neighborhood with a restoration project of a Southern “Arts and Crafts” style home. Once at home in Montgomery, she founded AFGID, a full-service interior design firm for commercial and residential clients. Her design philosophy is simple: “casual elegance” and in combination with her talent for creating timeless, livable spaces for the contemporary family is truly her art.
Ashley’s reputation for celebrating timeless neutrals and blending old and new elements into sophisticated practicality led to the launch of PARISH Shoppe in 2010, which also houses her custom design studio, located in the charming Cloverdale Village.
You can find Ashley at home with her devoted husband, Barrett, two delightful children, Cates and Rett, and two lovable boxers, Lawyer and Coco. If you haven’t met Ashley, you should also know that some of her best friends are her previous clients.
Born and raised in Montgomery, Ala., Rebecca graduated from Auburn University with a degree in public relations. She is also the newest addition to AFGID. Rebecca and her husband started a dental assisting school in Montgomery in the spring of 2013 where she is the Program Director. She wanted something to do a few days a week and found herself at Ashley Gilbreath Interior Design.
Rebecca is wife to Wright and mom to their two dogs, Tank and Willie. She and her husband reside just east of Montgomery in Pike Road, AL. In her spare time, Rebecca enjoys cooking, playing with her dogs, and spending time with her husband and chances are if you knock on her door after 5:00 pm she will invite you in for a glass of wine!
Jessica is a Montgomery native that just can’t bear to leave her sweet little town! As a young child playing with (and renovating) Barbie’s dream house, she quickly realized her passion for making beautiful things!
Jessica studied Interior Design and Art History at the University of Alabama where she learned that great design is always in the details. In the years following, she worked with both residential and commercial designers, and even spearheaded a few projects of her own! Jessica began with AFGID in August of 2013 and has loved every little adventure with the team!
Meagan was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, and graduated from Auburn University in May 2009 with a degree in Apparel Merchandising and a Business Administration Minor. She just recently moved to Montgomery in April after she married Montgomery native, William Rhodes. Meagan has a background in retail management, so when the girls of AFGID were looking for a PARISH SHOPPE manager, they knew she would be the perfect fit!
Meagan brings fun energy and refreshing ideas to PARISH which we know will be reflected in the shoppe and will be embraced by our customers as well! In her spare time she enjoys heading down to the beach and spending time with her family and is enjoying her new title as “wife”! Meagan is excited about this new season in her life and can’t wait to experience all the wonderful things that are ahead of her in Montgomery!
Born and raised in Montgomery, Ala., Martha Ann graduated from Auburn University with a degree in interior design. “Mae” as she in affectionately known, moved to Telluride in the summers of 2008 and 2009 where she met her now husband, Wes. While attending a holiday party with Wes, she met the partners of One Architects. They fell in love with her fun personality and sweet disposition and hired her on the spot. She graduated from Auburn in 2010 and moved out west to begin her new adventure!
After spending the last four years in Telluride, Mae and Wes have decided to move south and make Montgomery their new home and we couldn’t be more happy to have her as the newest designer at AGID. In her spare time, she enjoys cooking, playing with her dogs, Watson and Molly Sanchez, and spending time with her husband, preferably in the outdoors!
