About Me

Hi Friends! My name is Ashley Elaine, & welcome to my story. I live in central Pennsylvania with my husband of two years, Michael. A few fun facts about me: I love vinegar! I will drink it plain, and I have ever since I was a child. My eyes are two different colors – green and blue. If you look close enough, you may be able to tell too! Although I do not have any children of my own yet, I have a total 14 nieces and nephews already.

God always comes first for me and my family. I love doing a day of “prayer requests” every so often on my page to engage with all of you in God’s work too. My second passion in life is all things home decor, as to what prompted me to start my self interior design page on Instagram in 2018. I loved sharing my home renovation process and progress with my family, that I decided I wanted to make it more public and share with the design world, and all of you following along! As you’ll notice from my Instagram page, bright and airy homes are my favorite, and bring out the best in my renovations/inspirations. Neutral vibes are what make that airy feeling come to life for me, and keeping my style minimalist and simplistic allows me to always feel the brightness of my work. My overall style can be classified as “boho, mid-century modern,” as to where my “Modernly_You” Instagram name was inspired from and then created. Less is always more for the space I work with, which includes design, color, theme, etc.

My husband and I bought our first fixer-upper home in April of 2017. It is a double home, and while we rent out one half as landlords, we personally live in the other. We have been actively fixing it up and remodeling since the day we moved in. My method of transformation has been budget-friendly, and an always simple, yet classy DIY.

I am so glad you found my page and hope you enjoy seeing transformations just like I do. My page is full of before-and-after’s, DIY’s, thrifted renovations, and pure, loving creativity! I invite you all to follow along and always feel free to ask any question you may have about style / home decor / renovation / anything!
