Design Outside the Lines

Whether you are interested in a new color scheme for a single room or wanting to fully renovate your whole house, Design Outside the Lines is here for you! Located in Verrado- Buckeye, Arizona, Design Outside the Lines is a boutique residential interior design studio created in 2011 by owner and Principal Designer, Ashli Johnson. Ashli graduated Magna Cum Laude 2011 from Arizona State University – a FICA accredited school ranked number two in the country – earning a bachelors of science in Architecture and Design. This deeper knowledge of interior design from a scientific and logistical point of view is a quality all designers at Design Outside the Lines possess.

We are a full service interior design company, taking your project from beginning to end, materials to linens, with as little stress on you as possible or we can assist you in finding contractors, flooring specialists, electricians, and other trades to help create your dream home. We are committed to making your space just that, YOUR space.
