Founder and CEO
Roslyn Ashford’s journey into design and décor started within her family. She grew up with fabric, sewing and crafts all around her. Grandma Eula was a quilter and sewer, amongst other skills mastered on the farm and handed down these skills to her 10 children. Roslyn’s Aunt Gloria took to sewing and tailoring clothes and managed a dress shop in Brooklyn in the mid-1970′s, while her mother kept the needle in the home and taught her about fabrics, upholstery, window treatments, and the like. While she didn’t inherit the sewing gene from these three ladies, the creativity and love of fabric was forever stitched into her personal history.
She started her career after earning an MBA and working in Corporate America in Phoenix, San Jose, Boston and DC. After mastering an in-person design and furniture course taught by Lauri Ward, author of “Use What You Have Decorating,” ra reDoes rooms was born in 2004.
After launching the business, she jumped into the design industry, learning about furniture, design and fabric, worked with a local realty company to stage single family homes in Silver Spring, and with a national retailer selling custom blinds and shades. Eight years later, she has grown the company into a small team and focused the business into two main areas, Home Staging and Interior Decorating in the DC area.
