ASHLEY MANHAN: Co-Founder, Avenue Interior Design

Since it’s 2009 foundation in a bohemian studio off Venice and Abbot Kinney, hospitality based Avenue Interior Design has positioned itself as a tiny powerhouse in an industry full of giants. Now based in Downtown Los Angeles, the team continues to design and collaborate on the industry’s most dynamic properties for the most prominent leaders in hospitality. Under the direction of founders Andrea DeRosa and Ashley Manhan, the studio has become known for it’s refusal to be defined by any one style, instead opting to apply a fresh, distinctive and exclusive design to each project with consideration to brand, demographic and location. Avenue Interior Design values collaboration and prides itself on exceptional communication and respect for the creative process as well as the bottom line. The studio’s primary goal is to create impactful, engaging and influential brand identities that leave guests excited to return - all while maximizing profitability and exposure for our clients.

What do you love most about Your City?

Being from L.A., I’ve always navigated through the city via the hills and canyons. I love the valley and city views, and all the neighborhoods tucked amongst them.  
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant? Avocado toast at Go Get Em Tige

What are you doing at:

6:00 AM –  Pressing snooze…thinking about coffee.

10:00 AM -  Our office is bustling by this time. Typically I’m working with our team on new design presentations, prepping for an upcoming installation or strategizing with clients.

12:00 PM - Favorite Power Lunch spot/meal?

Sushi. Maybe a quick stop at Izakaya on 3rd or if I’m lucky the omakase menu at Matushisa.

7:00 PM -  Having a mental debate whether I should go to Pilates class or make Mexican food for dinner…

11:00 PM – Usually fast asleep after catching up on some TV episodes and a last minute email check.

What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?

This summer I got hooked on iced cold brew- with a little almond milk and simple syrup from Verve Coffee. Our office is above the shop so it’s an easy excuse to get up from your desk.

Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?

I’m a pretty loyal Goop follower- they’re so great curating interesting recipes, new beauty products and city guides. Another favorite instagram account is Jessica Seinfelds, she’s clearly hilarious, given who her husband is, recently came out with a cookbook and is always experimenting with new recipes.

What should everyone try at least once?

If you’re in the design industry or have an obsession with the finer things in life, you must go to Salone del Mobile, the annual furniture show in Milan. It’s a massive gathering of the most creative people, incredibly inspiring designs and set amongst Italy’s most fashionable city.

Where do you enjoy getting lost?

On a nice long walk exploring the amazing real estate Los Angeles has to offer
