Our Story

How it all started

It began with Ashley Brooke Designs (“ABD”), founded in 2008 in the midst of a personal reinvention.

When jobs were scarce for interior designers during the economic downturn, Ashley Brooke put her new design degree to use elsewhere. With the opportunity to forge an unconventional path, she began building her creative brand around gift products, desk accessories and custom stationery – unnecessary necessities for life and home that showcased thoughtful design and a cheerful aesthetic.

Within a few years ABD products were sold in over 650 stores across North America. In 2018, Ashley Brooke shifted out of her product business to focus full time on growing her lifestyle blog (AshleyBrooke.com). Since then, she has served a passionate and growing community with daily content that inspires and delights through her unique perspective and writing, meaningful brand partnerships, and public speaking.
