Hanover Avenue Interviews Ashley Darryl


Cute as a button with design talent out the ears, Ashley Darryl is taking the design world by storm! We love a designer who remains humble in the wake of a meteoric rise, and sweet Ashley takes her deserved success in stride with a warm Texas chuckle. She has paid her dues in the design world learning the business from the ground up from the best of the best, and now it’s her turn to shine…. She’s working on some of the most desirable projects with a style that’s refined, thoughtful, and best of all, livable! Ashely opens her entryway up for all of you lovely readers and shows how she created a space that also plays double duty as a dining room. *Gasp* It’s Ashley’s Emerald Entry!!

We got to sit down for a fun interview with Ashley, and boy is she ever smart and sweet! It feels like hanging out with an easy going buddy from camp as she lets the design tips fly. Learn all of the insider secrets behind her room and fall in love with this fantastic designer. Ten bucks says you want to hire her after you see this!


1. Pattern repetition makes the beat go on! This room is inherently a square, and Ashley capitalizes on that with the Albers prints and the boxy, Billy Baldwin chair. She doesn’t overdo it, but these subtle shape repetitions give the rooms a lovely edge. Even the bases of the obelisks are squares!

2.  Double duty space is cool at any size. In small NYC apartments or large country farmhouses, transforming an entryway with a dining table is chic all day long! It feels gracious, unexpected, and capitalizes on otherwise dead space. What a wonderful room to eat dinner with friends!

3. Unlikely pairings are a match made in heaven! Mixing organic or vintage finds with slick, more modern pieces allow a room to feel like it evolved over time. It looks unstudied yet perfect, and it ensures a space has “history”. Look at that Saarinen table with the flea market chandelier!!! PitterPattttt goes our hearts!


Ashley selected Benjamin Moore’s Emerald Isle as the paint color for the walls of her Entry. And we’ve added a few more of our favorite green paint colors for you to explore:

OoohhWeeee! We love how Ashley goes from high chroma to mellow sophistication in her living room. Check. This. Smart. Cookie. OUT! We show you what she did and where to shop the look. It’s the mark of a talented designer who can rock both colors and the neutrals with ease!
