WHO WE ARE. Ashley Maddox has been buying, renovating, and selling homes in historic buildings since 2008.   She looks to blend historic elements with modern references, and she is known for her clean lines, efficient use of space, and colorful palette.  A native Californian, Ashley has lived between Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, London, Paris, and Cape Town, resulting in a style that is a mix of French savoir-faire and American practicality, with touches of African-inspired graphics and fabrics.  Ashley has a BA in Art & Archaeology from Princeton and an MBA from Stanford, and she was a Fulbright Scholar affiliated with the University of Cape Town.

HOW WE WORK. In 2017 Ashley established Studio Maddox, a property fund that finds and develops beautiful apartments in the center of Paris.  Studio Maddox has convened a collective of design talent from across Europe and Africa, including architects, art galleries, antique dealers, fabric houses, and tile makers. Under Ashley’s leadership, the fund assembles the best team possible for each renovation project, tailoring the design aesthetic, process and budget to suit the potential for each property.  Studio Maddox has been featured in a number of international design magazines, and Ashley currently serves a Contributing Editor to Condé Nast's House & Garden in South Africa.
