The January/February 2019 issue features the home of Andrea Brooks, an interior designer herself who teamed up with Ashley Cardiel Interiors to makeover her Fayetteville home. “We challenged each other to always push ourselves creatively and at least share ideas aloud,” Ashley said of the collaboration. Throughout the process, the two coined the turn “aristo-boho” to describe the project: “It’s the marriage of preppy, aristocratic colors and textures with the art and accessories of a more bohemian traveler,” she said.

Before and After: Kitchen and Bath
When Leslie and Charley Parnell moved into their current home, they knew right away they wanted to lose some walls and give the home a more open floor plan. Working with designers Scott Paterek and Tammie Weaver of Massimo Interior Design, they ended up with a spacious kitchen (which happened to make the cover of our September issue!) perfectly suited to their urban-inspired style. Their bath also received an overhaul that resulted in a walk-in closet for both him and her. Read the full story here, and scroll below to see before images from this west Little Rock makeover.

Behind the Feature: The Best of Both Worlds
Our April “Before & After” issue includes an iconic Springdale home renovation, which we were thrilled to share with you in the magazine. Designer Ashley Cardiel and Taylor Wood of Woodbine Workshop produced a video that shares all the behind-the-scenes info on their feature. This home has gone through a modern transformation with guidance from Ashley Cardiel Interiors. We are happy to be able to share this in-depth video on the blog.
“A home renovation is a big undertaking in any scenario. Renovating a coveted home that previously belonged to a town’s beloved couple adds to that pressure. When Dr. Joel and Lynn Carver bought their 1940s-era house in downtown Springdale, they knew there would be talk about their purchase. After all, the red brick home, which is situated on a corner lot, belonged to Harvey and Bernice Jones, pillars in the trucking industry as well as the community. The Carvers desired to remodel the home with much needed updates, while staying true to its character and integrity, led them to call on Ashley Cardiel of Ashley Cardiel Interiors.”
