Ashley Kelly is an award-winning interior designer whose work is grounded in elegant classics and functional simplicity. For more than a decade, Ashley worked under the guidance of Houston’s highly regarded Jane Page Crump before establishing her own firm in 2019. Ashley’s expertise ranges from new construction to renovations and interior decorating— no project is too large or too small. She applies her keen eye for detail and willingness to adapt to individual tastes through each stage of the design process, developing spaces that truly speak to her clients.
Ashley spends time connecting with her clients on a personal level to better understand their lifestyle and goals for each project, encouraging feedback every step of the way, from conception to fabrication to installation. She is highly organized and has structured her business around client satisfaction, working closely with contractors and suppliers to adhere to timelines and budgets. Her designs have won numerous awards from the American Society of Interior Designers, and she has been honored with a coveted Kitchen Design Challenge award from Thermador. Ashley is happy to travel for her clients, and she enjoys working on special out-of-state projects, utilizing her growing network of industry connections to expand her scope and broaden each project’s potential. While her own tastes trend toward graceful and timeless with an emphasis on practicality, Ashley loves creative challenges and she enjoys adapting her own style to help her clients design their perfect space.
Ashley is a native Houstonian and a graduate of St. Agnes Academy. She holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Interior Design with a minor in Architecture from Texas Tech University. In addition to running her own firm, Ashley is dedicated to her work with Covenant House Texas, a nonprofit organization that supports minors in the region who are experiencing homelessness. She began her involvement by hosting monthly birthday parties with the organization, and in 2017 she co-chaired their annual gala. In 2021, Ashley professionally adopted her married name and unveiled Ashley Kelly Interiors (formerly Ashley Tisius), after she and her husband welcomed their daughter, Olivia.
