Happy October! In this month’s new issue, we share new takes on traditional design. This week’s Room of the Week features a Little Rock family who turned to designer Joshua Plumlee at Cobblestone & Vine to help bridge the gap between the classic look of their Heights home and their distinctive style. The front entry, seen above, is one of our favorite spaces. The interior of the front door and its surround are painted black to draw attention to its shapeliness and to add drama, while a Chinese Chippendale chair and an X-bench with traditional silhouettes are updated with fresh design details and fabrics. Plumlee used color, art, and custom furnishings to make the home a reflection of its fun-loving owners. We’ve gathered a few items to help you get the look, but contact Plumlee for all your design questions. Read the full story online here or find a copy of the new October issue on newsstands.

From editor in chief Diane Carroll: “A beautiful (and informative) post on Art Deco, a style I’ve always admired that’s cropping up in so many decor and fashion finds these days. Love all the geometrics and graphic design details.” (“Design under the influence: Art deco” from La Dolce Vita)
From art director Mandy Keener: “Excellent post! Love the colorful photos of the garden & that they purchased to keep it a public space–super awesome! Adding this to my list of docs to watch immediately!” (L’Amour Fou from Miss Moss)
