MOTIFIED is a play on two words that, when paired together, capture the underlying essence of slow, sustainable living.


Ashley Perkins is a New York-based creative and content marketing professional with a deep understanding of the digital landscape. As a Director of Digital Content at Sachs Media Group, she specializes in developing content that creates buzz and encourages people to take action online. Ashley graduated from Florida State University with a degree in Marketing and Psychology. She currently resides in a restored flour mill building in Auburn, NY with her husband and black cat.


After discovering the slow living movement, Ashley decided it was time for a major lifestyle overhaul. From eliminating clutter to shopping less and spending more wisely, she's experienced some of the challenges and satisfactions that come with pursuing a slower lifestyle.

MOTIFIED was launched in 2016 as a creative outlet for Ashley to share her journey and inspire those interested in taking the leap. The name "MOTIFIED" was created by combining two everyday words that capture the underlying essence of slow, sustainable living - "modify" is to reduce in degree or extent, while "motif" is a singlerepeated design or color.

You'll find a mix of everything slow living on MOTIFIED. Whether you're interested in minimizing your wardrobe, shopping more responsibly, downsizing your living space, pursue a less waste lifestyle, or simply want to slow down and enjoy the little things, you've come to the right place.

It’s about the process, NOT perfection.
