Why We’re Different
Do you hate thinking outside the box? Are creativity, playfulness, and a touch of whimsy not really your thing? Does it bug you when your interior designers want to get to know you as a person, laugh with you, or develop a relationship with you? If so, TVL Creative probably isn’t the interior design firm for you. However, if you are looking for an interior design experience that transcends the ordinary and gives you a fresh perspective on traditional design concepts and customized solutions to fit your personal style, you’ll love the way we work!
TVL Creative isn’t your average Denver interior design firm. We appreciate a good suit as much as a nice sleeve of ink. We believe coffee is almost as critical as an effective lighting plan. Call us crazy, but we think interior design projects and remodels for your home, office, or retail space are fun, and we want you to have fun too! Don’t get us wrong- we know how to get down to business and give a project the intense focus it needs to get done right. We also know that it’s essential to infuse a sense of play into our hard work, and we make it our goal to balance the two for results you just won’t find anywhere else in Denver. We want to help realize your vision, as well as offer some of our valuable insights and expertise to arrive at the perfect starting point for your project. We work hard to develop new relationships, and work even harder to give our clients the results they deserve. Sure, we’re quirky, but we’re some of the most dedicated workers you’ll ever meet, and will do whatever it takes to complete your project perfectly. Period. We love what we do, and we want you to love it too. Contact TVL Creative today to get started on your residential or commercial remodeling project.
Founder + CEO
TVL Creative was founded by Crystal Russell, a Denver native with a lengthy design background and boundless passion for everything creative. Crystal has extensive experience in various fields and is formally educated in Interior Design, Architecture, and Media Design. Crystal’s far-reaching industry experience of more than ten years has helped her cultivate a brand that delivers innovative design/build solutions time and time again. After being disenchanted with the overly formal and relatively unwelcoming air of other design and construction providers, Crystal established TVL Creative as a company rooted in openness, genuine friendliness, and raw design enthusiasm. Crystal can be found with her hands in just about every area of the business, but spends the bulk of her time currently managing the TVL Creative in-house construction processes and continuing to engage in massive brand development schemes. As a serial entrepreneur, the work never stops for Crystal and you can find her at her happiest when she’s deep in the next big idea.

Whether working with the team or clients, she elevates those around her with a strong passion for thoughtful design solutions and a love of collaboration. Faris is an award-winning interior designer with a background in Scandinavian furniture, styling, and customer service. As a true humanitarian-minded Aquarius, she whole-heartedly connects with TVL Creative's vision of redefining the industry standards to be approachable, accessible, and built on bettering the lives of everyone from client to contractor. The urban cowgirl vibe comes honestly for this East Coaster who fell in love with the West and the beautiful city of Denver. When not at work, you can find Faris whipping up a mean breakfast bowl, treasure hunting in antique stores and consignments shops, or enjoying a podcast.
Ashley says yes to a colorful palette, good design, and lattes (no sugar necessary-Ashley is sweet enough). A lifetime of studying architecture and design mixed with a lifelong love for the details of the world around us has made Ashley a tour-de-force of experiencing and celebrating our built environment. Light and shadow, dramatic pops of color, and gorgeous textures contribute to her enjoyment of life.

Whether it's a full home remodel or redesigning a single space, Ashley delights in the challenge of balancing clients' functional needs with their need for beautiful design.
Christa grew up in the foothills of Boulder, Colorado in a household filled with music, art, and creative expression. With three musicians and a photographer under one roof, Christa was bound to be in a creative industry - and she found dance. Hip hop dance, to be exact! After high school, Christa continued her career in dance and lived and worked in cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Sydney, Australia. Throughout her travels, Christa found that she had a talent and passion for designing and creating spaces; from restaurants to living rooms she loved every facet of design and knew this was her path. She returned to school, receiving her Bachelor of Art in Interior Design at The Art Institute of Colorado, where she met her professor, and soon-to-be friend and mentor, Crystal Russell. Upon graduation, Christa worked as an Ancillary Design Specialist for Workplace Elements, specializing in commercial furniture and design, working on major projects in the Boulder and Denver area including Vertafore and Google Headquarters. Christa is ecstatic to be a member of the TVL Family and gleefully brings her knowledge and passion for furniture and commercial design to the table. She loves creating a genuine connection with each client and strives to bring out the individuality of her clients in each design she touches. She also may or may not break out into dance at any given moment... you've been warned.
