Designer Ashley Whittaker grew up in the coastal town of Gulf Stream, Florida, where pink houses and Lilly Pulitzer fabrics are de rigueur. She cultivated an obsession with punchy, playful hues – evident in this British Colonial town house she decorated for family friends in her own hometown, and featured in the January issue of Southern Living. After spending 20 years building her design firm in Manhattan, Ashley was thrilled to revisit the sunny prints and patterns of her formative years. She also incorporated her eight decorating resolutions for the new year!
