When her longtime clients requested interiors that reflect their love of world travel, Denver designer Ashley Campbell delivered with a mix of new and antique furnishings, accessories and artifacts sourced from points across the globe.
But hidden within the Cherry Hills Village home’s eclectic mix of forms and patterns is functionality befitting the active young family who lives here.
In the music room, for example, a trio of antique metal wheels doubles as a kid-deterring fireplace screen. Kitchen bar stools–upholstered with a washable animal-print fabric from Lee Industries–pull up to a stain- and scratch-proof Caesarstone countertop.
In the dining room, Campbell covered a pair of settees with an outdoor Sunbrella fabric from Pindler. “You can literally take the slipcovers outside and hose them off,” she says.
And though the great room’s black, Chesterfield-style leather sofas are perfect for the “Ralph Lauren-meets-tribal look” Campbell was going for, her choice was driven by kid-friendly function: “That tight sofa back paired with loose throw pillows is so low-maintenance,” she says. “It’s a really cool marriage of form and function.”
