This painting by artist Mallory Page along with other beautiful products, seen at Bear-Hill Interiors in Little Rock, inspired it all. Its cool color palette from pinks to magentas with also a hit of pale orange is beautifully mixed. This piece would definitely steal the show in any space. And, there are more inspiring products to boot! Click here to see this and other colorful painting-inspired finds in our Style feature or find a copy of the July issue on newsstands.
In our July issue, Little Rock artist Rebecca Thompson shares her vintage architectural elements she has collected. With an outdoor space this beautiful, we thought it would be the perfect color inspiration for today. This vignette offers a soft, natural palette that can translate to any space. The lavender color is so subtle, yet makes such an impact and the gray antique bench is the perfect accent among the dark greenery. Throughout her garden you’ll find vintage statues, finials, tools, benches, chimney pots, planters, and keystones—anything with a back story or bit of history to bring architectural interest to her garden. “I love mystery and the story behind all of these pieces,” she says. Where do you find your color inspiration? Read the full story online or you can find a copy of the July issue on newsstands now.

Happy summer! After a rainy weekend, we thought this bright and sunny poolside palette would cheer up your Monday. Sisters and designers, Mona Thompson and Talena Ray of Providence Design give the Bottins a one-of-a-kind home with European flair right here in West Little Rock. We will be sharing more of the interiors throughout the month, so let’s get back to the pool. Staggered flagstone pavers in the dining porch and around the pool blend with nature, while the pool’s deep aqua color was inspired by a resort pool the Bottins spotted on vacation. Teak furniture is topped with neutral cushions, while a muted yellow umbrella ties the space to the interiors. Read the full story online here or find a copy of the new June issue on newsstands.
We hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend with family and friends. Today, we’re inspired by a Little Rock home renovation by designer Bill Beringer. The home once had a smaller galley-style kitchen, but after the renovation they have a spacious open kitchen with a seating area and fireplace, as well as a large breakfast area with a view. The title of this article says it all. It is most definitely a serene space. Tall arrangements by About Vase add color and compliment the room’s ceiling height. We love the color palette used on the table setting and also the hints of blue and green shown in the patterned napkins. See more of the home’s transformation and read the full story online here or you can find the story in the May issue.
