A neutral palette makes for a peaceful retreat for Little Rock designer and homeowner Amber Doggett. Over five years, she and her husband gathered inspiration for the design of their family’s new Benton home. “At this point in my life,” says Doggett, “I really felt like I needed a place that’s calming and tranquil.” She included dressy details in the master bedroom, from the scalloped lattice pattern on the draperies to the gold and ivory Lili Alessandra damask coverlet and the mirrored detail on the tufted headboard. We’ve gathered items to help you get the look. Read the full story online here or find a copy of the August issue on newsstands.
We hope you had a great weekend! With this wonderful, late-summer weather, we’re getting inspired by the outdoor space that designer Amber Doggett shares with her husband and her four children. You can tour the interior of the home in the August issue, but at this time of year, Doggett says the family spends most of their time in the home’s outdoor living spaces. In the covered patio, she adds various delicate shades of blue to the neutral palette to bring in a little extra color. Doesn’t it look like a perfect place to spend time with family and friends?Click here to read the full story and see the rest of Doggett’s home, or find a copy of the August issue on newsstands.

Fayetteville designer Katie Henry of Katie Grace Designs collaborated on this color-infusing makeover of Companions Clothier owner Pamela Rees’ Little Rock home. The result? A bright and happy space that matches the homeowner’s jubilant personality. From the foyer (seen above), there is also a view of the living room and breakfast nook, so the design had to flow with the connecting spaces. Henry started with a lighter version of the home’s palette, which was a fresh coat of Sherwin-William’s Navajo White. A heavy ironwork console and coordinating sconces were replaced with a retro gray entry piece, gold Greek-key style lamps, and original artwork by Arkansas artist Amanda Kella.
