in full bloom

July 5, 2017



Growing up in Texas, Ashley Woodson Bailey took time to stop and smell the flowers. She later transformed them into art. First as a floral designer. Then as a self-taught photographer, creating dramatic floral prints on wall coverings and fabric.

The artist: Bailey grew up in Corpus Christi, Texas, and from the University of Texas, where she studied art and art history. After college, she worked as a florist on and off for 20 years in Dallas, Houston, NYC, Savannah, Austin and Atlanta. Bailey started creating floral prints and wallpapers after she was in a head-on collision in 2012 and could no longer do the physical labor of being a florist.  She now lives in Jacksonville, Fla., and works out of her in-home studio.

The company: Ashley Woodson Bailey studio, started in 2014. The company offers limited-edition prints, wallpaper, fabric and clothing.

What’s popular: Dutch Love wallpaper ($12 per square foot. Minimum order is 35 square feet). Dark and lush, it has an Old World feel. Also prints ($175 to $5,800).

Other favorites: Fabrics ($208 to $275 per yard), including new patterns: DeWalt; Green Freedom and Frida Pink, inspired by artist Frida Kahlo.

Big break: Jessica Alba, actress and Honest Company founder, bought one of her large prints.
