Denver-based designer Andrea Schumacher is never one to shy away from neither textures nor colors. This becomes more than evident after a quick scroll through her Instagram page. Andrea knows how to walk a fine line where her projects are fresh, yet timeless and no two are ever alike. With that in mind, one could only imagine the serendipitous joy of Andrea's clients when they connected over Facebook. While the then-engaged, now-married couple loved the structure and exterior of this Cherry Village home, they felt the interior lacked some joy. The clients made it clear to Andrea that they wanted her to have fun with this redesign.

Andrea began with a coat of white paint to lighten up the previously brown and heavy interiors of the home and things took off from there.

The color palette throughout the home was heavily inspired by the Serendip wallpaper by Manuel Canovas, seen in the dining room. Andrea's clients were not afraid of color and it shows. The couple even chose to go with the very same wallpaper as their choice for colors in their dining room canopy chairs. The textures, designs and colors seen in the Cherry Village home are playful and light hearted.

The great room displays Andrea's innovative creativity and resourcefulness. Andrea and her team wrapped the fireplace in grasscloth, which helps hide the TV. This approach is also much more friendly on the budget than using stone. The matching colored sofas provide for a cohesive and uniform design narrative throughout the space. They were upholstered in Kravet's Ypsilon in Vizir.

Andrea keeps the levity and playfulness going in the sitting room, where plenty of natural light flows in to allow for a custom natural sheepskin rug step into center stage.

As a nod to the home owners' affection for dogs, Andrea added a flocked dog wall covering by Osborne and Little in an adjacent mudroom. The black and white from the mudroom connects to the center table and throw pillows within the sitting room .

The evidently entertaining project makes for a uniquely gorgeous home which does not take itself too seriously and has plenty of color and levity.
