In this month’s October issue, Joshua Plumlee with Cobblestone & Vine shakes up traditional design for a Little Rock fun-loving family. Plumlee uses color, art, and custom furnishings throughout the home and in the process writes his own rules on traditional design. In the guest room, seen here, Plumlee chose a deep aubergine for the walls, which is the perfect backdrop for the room’s white and gold art, furnishings, and accessories. “They love interesting art; they love color,” says Plumlee of the homeowners. The result of this whole-home transformation is a moody and glamorous–yet inviting–home that delights in its own eccentricities and offers a unique take on traditional home decor. We’ve gathered a few things to help you get the look in your own home. Read the full story online here or find a copy of the new October issue on newsstands.
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.
Homeowner Bill Hardin came back to the neighborhood where he grew up to find this historic Fayetteville home, which he renovated with the design guidance and expertise of Dale Trice of Florida. In the living room, pleated linen draperies recede against the soft white walls. A pearlized paint finish highlights the room’s original millwork, which was also left intact during the renovation. The French painting of a jazz musician is from Boswell Mourot Fine Art. “Mr. Hardin has a very keen eye for design,” says Trice, “he wanted the interiors to feel updated; not necessarily modern or traditional, but somewhere in the middle.” Find more before photos of the rest of the home and read the full story online here or find a copy of the May issue on newsstands.

We’re taking color cues from Katie Henry of Katie Grace Designs in our May issue. She worked with Little Rock homeowner Pamela Rees and gave her home an update to match her personality. The living room, kitchen and breakfast nook are all open to one another, so Henry carried the same color palette throughout the entire space. In the breakfast nook, a pair of lamps Rees already owned started it off and work well with the coral accents. A custom credenza by J & J Custom Cabinets offers storage as well as a serving space and goes great with the modern white chandelier.
