Muse Noire is a Charlotte-based design firm dedicated to curating contemporary global homes that celebrate culture. Led by founder and creative director, Ashley Ross, the firm reimagines residential and commercial spaces, journeying clients to the intersection of their own cultural heritage and Muse Noire’s palatable script of interior wellness.
Established in 2019, Muse Noire was born out of Ashley’s desire to create spaces that embrace people of color and make them feel whole when they return home. Recognizing the sacrifices individuals make to fit societal norms, Ashley believes in immersing high-performing BIPOC executives in a timeless and tactile environment where they can truly be seen and heard.
Before launching Muse Noire, Ashley served as a fundraiser and executive director for large nonprofits dedicated to helping children and families. However, it was with the start of her own family, alongside her husband Justin and their now 5-year-old daughter Naomi, that Ashley made the decision to transition into a creative career. Together, they have cultivated a contemporary global design aesthetic through their travels across five continents and seventeen countries.
Since its inception, Muse Noire has garnered acclaim, earning design awards and recognition from esteemed publications such as HGTV, Charlotte Home Design + Decor, Rue, SouthPark, Washington Post, Luxe Magazine, and more. Through their innovative concepts, Muse Noire continues to redefine residential and commercial spaces, leaving an indelible mark on the world of interior design.
