We’re taking you outside for this week’s “Room of the Week” feature. This poolside oasis was built around steep terrain, but that didn’t stop these Little Rock homeowners. They called upon expert designer Larry West, who had designed the interior of their home, and also Scott Girner of Elite Pools by Scott. The pool itself features state-of-the-art technology. Made from gunite (a mixture of cement, sand, and water), the salt-water swimming pool features Elite Pools’ proprietary Smart Pool™ system. Following the lead of the pool and its natural, neutral-based stone surround, West added the finishing touches to the terrace. “Because the area is so woodsy, we wanted to create an outdoor space that fit with nature,” West says. Light tan cushions are mixed with warm-hued throw pillows on the outdoor furniture. The far end of the pool features a ledge, which allows for a swim-up bar on one side and barstool seating on the other. Poolside cocktails anyone?

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’re brightening up your Monday morning with this graphic black-and-white, aqua and coral poolside cabana designed by Tobi Fairley. “We took color cues from the interior of this Fayetteville home, which is done in layers of aqua, light blue and steel grays and accented with orange tones from pumpkin to cinnamon,” says Fairley. Black-and-white stripes on the ceiling highlight the structure’s angles, and give it the feeling of an extra chic poolside hut. The pendants ordered from Restoration Hardware were given a custom aqua paint job to tie them into the color scheme. Banquette seating and custom Parsons chairs offer plenty of seating for extended family and guests. Find all the images and read the full story online in the March “Outdoor Living” issue here.
