WELCOME TO THE VIXI DESIGN HOUSE

I'M ASHLEY DENTINO.

I'm an interior designer based in New York City.

When translated from Latin, Vixi means 'to be alive'.

Whether it be a design project, staging job or styling for a photoshoot, this is where I share what I know and learn about how to make interiors come to life with design appeal.

You're in good company with people who love design and are always working on elevating their own spaces.

 

YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.

I’ve designed and/or staged and styled over $100 million of real estate in New York City while sharing the process (and the city) along the way.

You’ll see everything from before & afters to the design techniques I use to make projects come together.

I let you in on my success & my failures so we can develop our eye for design and interior style together.

THE VIXI DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

A Culture of Beauty

A Philosophy of Good Living

A Passion for the Arts

WHILE DESIGN WASN'T MY FIRST CAREER, IT'S ALWAYS BEEN MY PASSION

Born and raised in Scottsdale, Arizona with a family in the business of luxury home building, it was inevitable I would find my way into the industry.

As far back as I can remember I was touring construction sites and dreaming up the potential hidden inside.

For whatever reason, it didn't clique with me that interior design could be my career until my late 20's so I spent the better part of the decade trying different things and living different places.

One constant was that no matter what full-time job I had I would babysit on nights and weekends to earn extra money. I loved it because it gave me the opportunity to set foot in a lot of luxury hotels and exquisite homes in the most sought after neighborhoods where I lived.

I couldn’t get enough of architecture, design and stunning finishes and babysitting was my way of feeding that passion.

INTERIOR DESIGN

Ever since I've been finding ways to go into homes and do my best to elevate the design.

I went back to school for interior design, then moved to New York City to be a part of a high-end commercial architectural design firm. 

As a small, talented team we designed some of the largest and most exciting commercial projects that have changed both the skyline and landscape of New York City.

I experienced collaborating with top developers, architecture firms, marketing teams, real estate agents and tradespeople in the luxury market.

 

STAGING | STYLING | SHOOTING

Now I work in the real estate world and the focus has shifted to staging and styling with some renovation and design work.

I enjoy the fast pace of these projects, getting to see my designs turn around quickly and learning how to style spaces for the camera. 

I’ve learned a lot about bringing spaces to life and presenting them on camera since my babysitting days and I share my projects here to help you do the same.
