Rustic, relaxed and welcoming, ranch-style homes have always had wonderful ease about them. In Kamas, designer Ashley Amman added a hit of Southern comfort to charm this vacation mountain home and its inviting spaces even more. The designer collaborated closely with her New Orleans-based clients, looking to their Louisiana roots for inspiration and choosing antiques and timeless details that personalize the family’s mountain retreat in Victory Ranch, just outside of Park City. We recently featured this project in Back at the Ranch, and have pulled together the following photos that didn’t make it into our print story to share even more of the delightful mountain getaway.

Designer Ashley Amman married her clients’ traditional style with the rustic beauty of the pristine mountain setting of Kamas’ Victory Ranch community. The scenery also inspired the interior’s color palette. “Pulling colors from the landscape helps blur the line between inside and out,” the designer explains. Organic materials and natural hues were enlisted to meld the décor to the dwelling’s mountain setting. Cathedral-cut white oak covers the floors, randomly stacked stone defines the living room’s fireplace, and wool rugs, linen upholstery and leather pillows replay throughout. “It’s a very informal and calming palette,” Amman says.

Inside the primary bedroom, a simple canopy bed creates a room-within-a-room. An eye-catching chandelier draws the eye upward to the room’s lofty ceiling.
A charming chest furnishes the entry. The designer peppered the décor here and throughout the home with informal antiques and unique pieces. “There’s comfort in mismatched pieces, and antiques are an important part of creating a storied look and feel,” Amman says.
