A Fayetteville home designed by Harper Howey Interiors is full of color and style and this teen girls’ hangout is no exception. Navy and pink make for a preppy and fun color palette. Imperial Trellis wallpaper by Schumacher creates a whimsical accent wall, while a bright magenta ceiling offers girlish glamour. Paired with a white, tree-inspired table by Stray Dog Designs, two upholstered, high-back chairs from Lighting Emporium provide additional pattern and coordinate with the design.

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.

Today’s color cues come from this Southwestern-meets-Tuscan style kitchen seen in our April issue. This before and after transformation was designed by Kathryn LeMaster of Kathryn J. LeMaster Art & Design. Homeowners Jessica and Clay Barber are parents to five boys and needed to completely rethink their kitchen space. By removing a divisive dining peninsula, adding banquette window seating and removing some upper cabinets, she was able to improve traffic flow and balance out the space. LeMaster also introduced an airy color palette to help create the illusion of a more spacious room. She carefully selected materials, such as chestnut hardwood floors, distressed mango-wood breakfast table, bronze hardware, understated travertine herringbone-pattern backsplash and earth-toned granite countertops, along with turquoise and orange accents, which all add to the Southwestern flair in this traditional space.

These bold blues and yellows that grace our April issue’s cover are perfect for today’s color inspiration. The University of Arkansas’ chapter of Tri Delta enlisted an alumna to give its historic house a fresh new look. That alumna was interior designer Melissa Haynes of MH Design. She features an archival pattern by Brunschwig & Fils in the historic house’s foyer. Shades of blue, green and gold are reminiscent of Tri Delta’s national colors and helps set the palette and tone for the house’s fresh new look. “My approach was to give the house a fresh and youthful traditional style while still preserving and celebrating what is—in my mind—a true Southern sorority house,” says Haynes.

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.
Today, our color inspiration comes from a high-flying collection of birding field guides from a Scott collector. Jerry Butler is an avid bird-watcher and loves spending time looking out the window and exploring the grounds around his home for beloved native birds as well as foreign flyers passing through the state. “March is a particularly good time to watch for new species because of the migration that takes place as winter draws to a close,” he says of the spring season. We’ve been reminded of all the beautiful colors of different types of birds, which are beautifully illustrated throughout Jerry’s collection. Don’t forget, color inspiration can be right outside your window! Read the full story online in the March issue here or find a copy on newsstands.
