A true Southern gentleman from Lafayette, La., Ashby himself wouldn't tell you who his best clients are – so breathtaking are the names. It's that discreet. Or at least as discreet as you can be when you have your work featured in the books Great Houses of Texas and Modern Cabin, as well as in a number of publications, including Southern Living, Better Homes and Gardens, Traditional Home, and Western Interiors & Design. Ashby has been keeping Austin, and much of Texas, beautiful since 1998.
