All the Details Behind Country Star Ashley Monroe's Newly Designed Writing Room
With a penchant for pale palettes and rustic accessories, Ashley Monroe turned to designer Brad Ramsey to help revamp her writing room. "I really gravitate towards creams and grays. Pale pink or pale blue splashed in is always pretty," the "Bombshell" crooner tells Wayfair.com exclusively. "I'm really happy with how it turned out!"
CARPE THAT DIEM
For added motivation, this glass weight with the words "Carpe That Diem" etched upon it, serves as an encouraging affirmation for Monroe.
"If a room feels more like an office or too much like a home, it can affect the creativity," the singer says, citing comfort as her top request when finding a space to work in. "When I feel comfortable in the room I'm writing in, it definitely affects me."
A PANORAMIC VIEW
Monroe's writing room has the best of both worlds: it's functional yet chic. "I love the little accents of gold and I love the rug. And the couch. And chairs. Okay all of it!" Monroe says.
TIME FOR SONGWRITING
"If a room feels more like an office or too much like a home, it can affect the creativity," Monroe tells Wayfair.com exclusively. "I love the idea of a creative space with a mix of the two."
A JOINT SETTING
A TOUCH OF COLOR
Two terrariums are front and center in Monroe's writing space, providing a hint of green to the room. The singer is known to be a fan of "clean, simple lines without a lot of color," which explains the presence of warm neutrals and layers of texture throughout.
With Johnny Cash being one of Monroe's country music icons, it was no question that photos of Cash would be included as focal points in the writing area.
MONROE HEARTS PRACTICAL
When it came time to choose chairs and couches, Monroe opted for seats that would come in handy when she and her team would bring in their guitars. Think: low-profile arms and a statement pillow to bring the look (and its practicality) together.
The country star, whose fondness for gold accents is displayed elegantly with these bookends, finds inspiration for her music everywhere. "I tend to let the music hit me when and how it's supposed to, then I just ride that wave on out."
