Maxey designed a reclaimed-wood extension to the kitchen island and warmed the gray palette with brass-accented lighting from Visual Comfort.

Hot Talent: Asha Maxey

Asha Maía Interiors

Asha Maxey, who grew up in Holly, Michigan, always had a soft spot for interior design. She studied architecture for a year, then wound up with a degree in marketing. A job in supply-chain management led her to the DC area where eventually a side gig decorating homes snowballed into a viable business. In 2017,
she launched her own firm, Asha Maía Design.

Raised on 10 pristine acres complete with a tree house, Maxey pays homage to nature in her work. “There’s a lot about Michigan that inspires me; you really experience all four seasons there,” she explains. “I love open, airy landscapes that feel clean and fresh, so I incorporate those aspects in my projects. I also make it a goal to introduce fresh greenery into my clients’ spaces.”

Maxey recently put the finishing touches on a Craftsman-style residence in North Arlington and is embarking on a modern condo in Old Town. “I make sure that my clients’ personalities shine through,” she affirms. “In short, I’m all about creating homes that are livable, happy and really feed us with positive energy.”
