When a mentor-of -sorts and a dear friend tipped us off to her pal Ashley Gleason's stunning home, we couldn't wait to reach out ourselves to learn more. The lifestyle concept-shop proprietor and mother of two has transformed her 1860's Italianate townhouse into a modern masterpiece in the Fishtown neighborhood of Philadelphia. Click for the tour, as Dominic Episcopo photographs the wildly inspiring, down-to-earth decadence.
Fishtown might not be the "burbs," but Ashley certainly has created her own magnificent city- escape for the family, with a gorgeous mix of highs and lows. Stately architecture and grand fixtures are countered with laid-back textiles and playful proportions. Ashley walks us through and tells us a bit about her next big project, Vestige!
The store will be a lifestyle concept that includes vintage, found objects, textiles, home goods and apothecary.
It will feature Ashley's favorite makers, vintage/objects that she has collected, and a small line of made-in-the-USA apparel. Ashley also offers design + inspiration services. It is located in the fishtown section of Philadelphia and is slated to open in May.
