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.
It’s almost the weekend and if you’re planning to do any remodeling or decorating, this French-Country inspired kitchen might just be the inspiration you need!

She uses a low-contrast color palette of light neutrals, which creates a serene atmosphere throughout her home. In the kitchen, the island is finished in an aqua tone, posing a restrained—yet playful—contrast to the rest of the cabinetry.
