Good morning! We’re cooking up a delicious color palette this morning, all inspired from this beautiful (and oh-so-tasty) tablescape from Euna Mae’s Heirloom Kitchen & Home Goods in Springdale. As seen in our all-new September “Kitchen & Bath” issue, this pretty breakfast table is made up of lots of goodies from Bonnie’s Jams small-batch preserves and Callie’s Charleston Biscuits to the American-made reproduction jadeite salt-and-pepper shakers, which we are swooning over. The colors run the gamut, but we’re picking out our favorites. And, there’s more vintage-inspired finds to keep you at the breakfast table a little longer in our September “Style” section. Click here to read the full story or find a copy of the new September issue on newsstands. Want even more? Scroll down to find our inspiration board below, which includes a mix of images and paint colors we gathered from around the web, all inspired by our sweet and savory breakfast at Euna Mae’s.
This bold dining room designed by Tobi Fairley surely does brighten our Monday! Fairley designed the space for a family of eight, as seen in the August “Family Homes” issue. The teal, chocolate, and yellow color palette is all tied together from the bold and unexpected yellow chandelier and drapes right down to to the floral patterned wallpaper (which is to die for!). We love the teal upholstery on the traditional dining chairs, which help anchor the room. Fairley didn’t overlook one thing in this space, and we love how it all came together.

Harper Howey Interiors brings a casual, shore-inspried style throughout this Fayetteville home. We’re showcasing the family’s formal dining room this week. The home is designed with inspiration from the homeowner’s favorite beach spot, Rosemary Beach, which is along Florida’s Scenic Highway 30A. Homes in the area often feature a cool palette of ocean-inspired blues and greens, slipcovered furniture, and weathered wood. Used for holidays and special gatherings, the dining room’s more formal design still ties in with the overall look of the home. The upholstered bench is the perfect perch for children and brings a sunny yellow into the room’s palette. Read the full story online here or find a copy of the 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.

Designer Barbi Rushing’s countryside estate just outside of Little Rock is filled with beautiful antiques. From the moment you walk through the front door, you’ll realize every piece is not only beautiful, but meaningful as well. The home was built to encompass a set of antique French trumeau doors that lead into the dining room. The bronze doré chandelier hanging over the table belonged to Barbi’s grandmother. And, the center tablecloth was made specifically for luncheons her mother hosted. Along with the family pieces handed down over the years, Barbi effortlessly mixes in pieces she has found using her own artful eye. “I have always loved antiques and beautiful pieces, and I believe all pretty things go together,” says Rushing.

Editor Diane Carroll is entranced with this beautiful French locale. She says, “This wonderful hotel in the Luberon in France looks amazing. I’m getting ready to spend a few days of R&R in the Texas Hill Country, and while it’s not quite France, it’s casually beautiful like this. Gravel courtyards, herb gardens, tables in the shade, and a few local wineries to boot.” (“A Look at the French Countryside” from Beth Davis Interiors via Habitually Chic)
