Living a gracious life involves paying attention to the details. Greeting every guest at your door with a welcoming hello, having a cup of coffee ready to serve at a moment’s notice, using your grandmother’s china for more than just special occasions, with linen napkins and antique sterling silver to accompany it. Whether it was a ready drink on hand, a comfortable chair quickly offered or a phone call promptly returned, we witnessed graciousness in action while compiling an entire issue dedicated to this theme. And don’t for a minute think that gracious means stodgy. During a photo shoot in Fayetteville, we were treated to a delicious lunch served on Old Paris china while tunes from homeowners Steve and Cynthia McClanahan’s rockin’ music collection played away in the background. When we photographed Stephen and Wendy LaFrance’s Edgehill home in Little Rock, tea and cakes were in abundant supply—as were Skittles and (my personal favorite) Sweet Tarts from the candy drawer. For these homeowners, graciousness is a way of life, from how they furnish their homes to the clothes hanging in their closets. Classic, comfortable, elegant…and fresh. Because we know that your home is just one component of how you live, we bring you ideas and tips in each issue for a design-savvy lifestyle: furnishings, fashion, travel and more. This month, we offer you a full stylebook of graciously good-looking apparel and accessories for fall, photographed in a luxuriously lovely home that completes the package. Settle in for an inspiring read, and then click over to our Web site, www.athomearkansas.com, for even more stylish ideas and visuals you can easily (and graciously) share with family and friends.

Glass decanters were born out of necessity to decant, or pour, filter and oxygenate wine. Their various shapes also have a purpose, such as those designed with very large bases so as to not tip over while traveling on a ship. But beyond that, says collector Larry Jordan, owner of Little Rock’s Fabulous Finds Antiques, their appearance is largely ornamental. “The fancier the decanters were, the more impressive,” he says. “It was a sign of wealth.” Jordan, however, doesn’t collect decanters for their monetary value or to hold liquor. “What I’m after,” he says, “is a unique look that no one else has.” He offers a plethora of original ideas for decorating with and using decanters. He often begins by grouping three or five together on a silver or wooden tray, or arranging them at alternating levels using stacked books or brass or silver bases. And he experiments until he finds the look that he wants. This might involve hanging a tassel or two, or even draping a piece of vintage jewelry. “Being in the antique business, sometimes I purchase jewelry boxes and the contents are still inside,” he says. “Wrapping rhinestone necklaces around the neck of a decanter creates something completely different and beautiful.” Switching out the original stoppers with ones he discovers while antiquing is another one of Jordan’s tricks-of-thetrade—even the stoppers were artfully designed and can add appeal. They have distinctive shapes, such as spire or mushroom, and often feature beautifully cut or etched glass as well. The wide variety of styles further encourages Jordan’s artistic license. He is particularly fond of cut-to-clear glass. Through this delicate process, colored glass is layered or flashed over clear glass before being cut, exposing the clear glass underneath. “A lot of times, poorer people would buy decanters made to look cut, but they were really pressed,” he explains, noting one of his own with a pressed thumbprint pattern. Bohemian cut-to-clear glass, which Jordan also has, is cut and etched, sometimes with pastoral scenes. Still others are hand-painted or feature enamel overlay, and they come in a wide array of vibrant colors—amber, amethyst, apple green, which is Jordan’s favorite, and more. When he’s not carefully adorning or displaying them, Jordan is filling them with flowers or using them to hold mouthwash. “I do whatever I can,” he says, “to make the collection all my own.” www.athomearkansas.com 19

We posted the request on our Facebook page: Searching for a foyer in need of a fresh look. Fayetteville homeowner Candace Dixon responded with a few photos, and designer Jennifer Huett, owner of House to Home in Hot Springs, took on the design challenge. “A foyer sets the mood for the entire house,” says Huett. “This space has great elements, like the beautiful front door and the marble floor, which needed emphasizing. I used them as the starting point for the palette in creating a look that’s elegant yet bold with a pop of color.”

ROOM REFRESHER

A Little Rock couple enlists the help of designer Tobi Fairley to turn an outdated kitchen and den into a relaxed yet refined retreat By Tiffany Burgess

After living in their West Little Rock home for nearly 10 years, Wayne and Clair Alley were ready for a new look in the most-used area of their home—a blended-space living room and kitchen. With two of their four children away at college, the couple knew the updates should be practical, encourage spending time together, and offer plenty of seating for friends and extended family. They turned to Little Rock-based designer Tobi Fairley to create a contemporary retreat. Here’s how she pulled the look together. www.athomearkansas.com 23

THE LIVING SPACE 1. Fairley began with a paisley print for the draperies and then selected coordinating patterns in similar colors to create a refreshing, serene environment. “I wanted the space to be an inviting and relaxing area with little visual noise,” she says. 2. Replacing the existing ceramic tile with traditional hardwoods grounded the design and unified the living area with the kitchen. A soft rug adds a cozy touch. 3. A loveseat and a sofa in coordinating hues invite the family to relax with the Sunday paper or share the details of the day. A pair of blue swivel chairs turns to face the TV or the conversation area—depending on where the action is happening. 4. A crisp khaki color covers the walls and serves as a neutral backdrop for the fabric and furnishings in varying shades of blue and green. 5. No piece is more versatile than the mobile ottoman, which serves as a coffee table (thanks to a tray insert), footrest and extra seating for large gatherings. 6. Removing a bulky entertainment center opened up space for additional seating. Relocating the television to the other end of the room kept the conversation area free of distractions.

BEFORE THE WORK ZONE 1. A custom banquette, built by Winfield Cabinets, eliminated the need for a large, formal dining table and builds on the relaxed feel of the rooms. “The kids always fight over who gets to sit in the booth,” says Clair. 2. Fairley added a row of glass-front cabinets to the top of existing wall units to heighten the visual appeal and provide additional storage. Keeping some of the existing cabinetry and many of the appliances netted budget savings. 3. Glazed ceramic tiles from Walker Zanger updated the backsplash and added a touch of polished sheen to the décor. 4. The one change to the layout was removing an awkwardly shaped island in favor of a rectangular, symmetrical version. This created a better traffic flow and gave the Alleys more counter space. 5. Fairley swapped dated fixtures for large, contemporary drum shade pendants. 26

It’s what graciousness is all about. From a historic redo to a newly-built residence, two equally chic homes offer fresh takes on classic style.


A Little Rock designer looks to the past while giving a historic home a fresh and glamorous update Interview: Paulette Pearson Styling: Mandy Keener Photography: Nancy Nolan

Stephen and Wendy LaFrance worked with interior designer Kevin Walsh of Bear-Hill Interiors in remodeling their historic Edgehill home, including retiling the roof and replacing the windows, shutters and front door. The refurbished study features oak paneling and a black marble ďŹ replace surround. www.athomearkansas.com 37


At Home in Arkansas: This home in Little Rock’s Edgehill neighborhood has a rich history.

Kevin Walsh of Bear-Hill Interiors: It’s a historic home designed by the well-known architect Max Mayer and built in 1929—the first in the neighborhood. The homeowners [Stephen and Wendy LaFrance] actually have a book about it that’s been passed down from owner to owner, so we could see how it looked from the beginning. There are old aerial photographs of it surrounded by nothing but land. AHIA: How did its history influence the changes you made? KW: We added on 1,500 square feet, including the kitchen. We touched just about everything. That being said, we wanted to keep it historically correct, not make it something it wasn’t intended to be. I brought in vintage and antique pieces so it would feel collected over time and less new. I also tried to match things that already existed, like door trim and casings in the living room that correspond to the shape of the fireplace. We replaced the windows, shutters and front door, but used the exact style of the original windows. We imitated images we had of the original light fixtures in many of the rooms. Years ago, there was even hand-painted wallpaper in the dining room, as there is now. AHIA: Speaking of that dining room wallpaper… KW: It was at the top of Wendy’s wish list. She found this handpainted wallpaper from Gracie, which allows you to completely customize it. Wendy loves birds, which are in the design, and I wanted a light background so the pattern would stand out. AHIA: The room has a sense of history yet feels current. Was that a design goal? KW: We kept the house super traditional but with a little bit of a modern edge, light and fresh and not overly decorated. It has a reflective quality, through things like mirrored surfaces and beaded accent pillows. Just like Wendy’s personality, it sparkles. AHIA: And yet it all combines seamlessly with Stephen’s more masculine spaces. KW: I like a cohesive look. The home’s color palette ranges from cream and blue to gray, black and white. Stephen wanted a more masculine look in his rooms, so we gave him an oak-paneled study, and it ties back in because of the black marble fireplace surround. Now they have the best of both worlds. The living and dining rooms are beautiful and feminine for formal entertaining, and the study is a great place for the guys to gather and watch TV. AHIA: In what way is the kitchen conducive to entertaining large crowds? 38

KW: It has every modern amenity known to man—a six-burner range, griddle, double ovens, deep fryer, warming drawers, refrigerated drawers, even a brick wood-burning pizza oven. It also has the best candy drawer in town. AHIA: Two words describe the master bedroom: tranquil and serene. KW: It’s actually Stephen’s favorite room, because it’s a great place for him to rest. The wall color is Sherwin-Williams’ Silverpointe, a grayish green blue. I like a grayish tint rather than super clear colors, because it’s softer and a little more dreamy. The window treatments are a gorgeous silk, and we added molding and changed the surround on the fireplace, which was too plain before, to make it feel special. AHIA: Overall, this project seems right up your alley. KW: I personally love the house. It’s one of those homes that is classically traditional and glamorous at the same time. The fact that it’s so beautiful made decorating it easy.

The façade of Cynthia and Steve McClanahan’s Fayetteville home features a Regency-inspired pair of front doors, flanked by outdoor draperies made from Sunbrella fabric. Inside, designer Chris Goddard continued the symmetry with a pair of sofas covered in Nancy Corzine fabric and antique painted armchairs from Marshall Clements. A Donald Roller Wilson painting is center stage on the mantle. The chandelier is from Dessin Fournir; wall color is Farrow & Ball’s Pointing.

Above: “The kitchen was designed around the fact that Cynthia likes to sit on the counter and hold court,” says Goddard, who also notes that the entertaining couple like to roll up their sleeves and cook for a crowd, which inspired dual islands and sinks. The condiments-as-art above the glass-door refrigerator are raku pottery by artist Karen Shapiro. Facing page: Cynthia’s collection of Old Paris china is highlighted in the kitchen’s serving and wet bar area; counters are white quartz and Carrara marble. Left to right: Red and black are used as accent colors throughout the house, such as a 17th-century Venetian chinoiserie secretary from Marshall Clements, roses on a mirrored table from Jan Showers, draperies made from Clarence House crewel banded in a Donghia stripe and tied back with a vintage horn-shaped purse handle, and a 1940s-era side chair.

At Home in Arkansas:

This house balances open and inviting with elegant and refined. How did you manage to make it feel comfortable yet look so chic?

Designer Chris Goddard: To me, good design involves creating a home that fits the owners’ personalities, and this place completely reflects their style.

Homeowner Cynthia McClanahan: Making our home feel inviting was a top priority for my husband, Steve, and me. Our places have always been the repository of food and drink for friends and family, so it had to be welcoming. AHIA: Did you build it with that balance in mind? CM: An open plan was important to us, a place where we could move a few pieces of furniture and shift from entertaining to dining and dancing when the mood struck. As for elegance, I think the layers of detail that Chris added give the house a polished look. He worked with us from initial concept to completion, so details in the construction carry through to details in the décor. CG: We wove layers throughout the house to keep things interesting; there’s always something more to see, a new level to unfold. Elements like the pattern in the living room chandelier being repeated in the ceiling molding, and the X-and-O pattern in the transom windows showing up again in the kitchen cabinetry. We layered color the same way. Cynthia wanted a house that was light, and with that you need some elements to ground it, like a touch of black or deep red. AHIA: While the walls are all neutral shades, the house has a colorful appearance. Surely that’s a result of the attention to detail? CM: And Chris’ color guidance. I initially envisioned an all white house. What I was going for was a place that felt calm, light and happy, and he guided us toward starting with an ivory base and mixing in pink, blue and jade as accents, which are all colors I gravitate to. Now, the house has the peaceful feeling we wanted, but it’s more interesting visually. CG: Textures add to that interest as well, mixing silk with leather, a shiny reflective surface next to aged wood, a carved table alongside smooth steel. AHIA: You’ve mixed eras here too—sitting in the living room, I see Moderne cigarette tables mingling with antique armchairs and what looks to be a very old painted chest. CG: It’s 17th-century Venetian chinoiserie, and it added that strong punch of color that grounds this room. Cynthia bought it years ago, and when you have good pieces, you can move them around and use them different ways in different places. The mix of styles works because they’re all 48

items Cynthia loves, gathered over time and each with good bones and basics. And when you move a favorite piece, it feels fresh again. CM: If I don’t love an item, I don’t buy it. Chris and I have worked together for years and he’s taught me to only purchase items that I love, ones that make me smile or laugh or invoke a memory. That way, your home becomes a reflection of your personality. CG: I’m a firm believer in the idea that it’s better to have nothing than the wrong thing. Wait for the right item, the one that really speaks to you. AHIA: Personal style shows through in all the collections around the house as well, including Murano glass bowls and that entire wall of china in the kitchen. CG: Collections are best grouped together, so instead of being random items they have mass impact. The wall of glass-front kitchen cabinets was designed to highlight the Old Paris porcelain, and it has graphic impact but it’s also handy for daily use. CM: That’s another thing Chris and I agree on—you should use what you collect rather than hide it away. It’s a part of living graciously, using your china or your silver on a daily basis so it’s shared and enjoyed. Items you collect have a rich history, and when you use them and enjoy them you continue to add to the story.

In the master bedroom, Tibetan doors from Marshall Clements create a backdrop for a custom bed covered with a handmade quilt of Fortuny fabric. Lamps are Murano glass circa 1950; the wall color is Farrow & Ball’s Borrowed Light. Facing page, clockwise from top left: In the master bath, Venetian plaster walls highlight a vintage tub and draperies made from Sunbrella fabric and banded with a Fortuny print. The guest bedroom features a custom bed covered in Matteo and Missoni bedding, an 18th-century gilt altar, and an oyster shell chandelier from Currey & Company. Walls are covered in Farrow & Ball’s Pale Powder; a custom side table made from vintage brackets and steel contrasts with a French ropepatterned side chair. The master bath vanity sink and fixtures are from Porcher. For additional images, visit www.athomearkansas.com

Retirement looks good

WE HAVE IT ALL... fun people, gourmet food and activities! -Beth Ward

I love Woodland Heights. This place is really special for me because of the way the staff makes each resident here feel cared for. The attitude of our residents is more like an extended family than you can imagine. In these days when our immediate family lives far away it is a comfort to them to feel that we are safe and happy. Just think, you don’t have to plan meals, shop for groceries, prepare the food, and then clean up. I think the meals are great. An added blessing is how close we are to three hospitals and my doctors are just 15 minutes away. I especially like my water-exercise every day and feel that my health has improved since I have lived the past eight years here. An added bonus: both our heated pool and beauty shop are in our one building. After being left when my children moved on and my husband died, I realized how much I needed people. Although I had friends, there were some places in my heart that needed more. Woodland Heights fills that need.

-Rebecca Jo “Joey” Davidson

There are many reasons we are happy living at Woodland Heights. At the top of the list are the friendly happy residents.

-Raymond & Dottie Bradley

Often I hear our happy residents say, “We should have been here five years ago.” It’s easy to be at home here where the residents become family and the staff always has our best interest at heart. Don’t wait! Come join us.
