From The Editor in Chief

PHOTOGRAPHY: NANCY NOLAN

A new year brings with it a sense of rebirth and a time to start fresh. It is also a time to look to new trends and ideas that are coming to the forefront. We look forward to our annual Design Issue each year because it is truly a way for us to forecast what we believe will be the year’s trends to watch. This issue is full of ideas to inspire changes around your own home. We chose three designers with different styles to feature, and each of their projects touch on trends that have been coming to life recently. I know you will find many inspiring details to covet and try. And, as always this time of year, we share with you the local winners from the American Society of Interior Designers South Central Chapter’s annual awards gala. These acclaimed projects are another way for you to find favorite new ideas to infuse into your home in the upcoming year. For me personally, it is with mixed emotions that I pull this issue together with my team, for it will be my last as editor in chief. I can’t begin to tell you how immensely I have enjoyed my time with At Home. Adding to this bittersweet time, I must also say goodbye to a city and state I have loved and called home for more than eleven years. As editor, I have traveled the state meeting so many wonderful and talented Arkansans who have welcomed me into their beautiful homes and thriving businesses, and I feel that it truly has been an honor. I have seen first-hand just how diverse our state and residents are, and I have enjoyed every minute of this venture, especially listening to your heartfelt stories and learning about your love of this wonderful place we all call home. In closing, I want to say a personal thank you to everyone that has played a part in my life here in Arkansas. I never imagined that I would find myself here, nor did I ever think that I would love a place that wasn’t my initial home so much. I will forever miss the love and life that you gave me. The title of one of the state songs seems to perfectly sum up how I feel —“Arkansas, You Run Deep in Me,” and you always will.

Chip Jones Editor in Chief chip@athomearkansas.com

As we go to press on this issue, we are saddened to hear of the passing of our friend and local design icon Reggie Marshall. His talent and passion will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

BUILDING ON A FAMILY LEGACY

In Arkansas, Jack Hartsell Construction is synonymous with quality. Since Jack Hartsell Jr. started the company in 1970 they have been committed to craftsmanship with integrity in both home remodels as well as custom building projects. Today, Jack Hartsell III, who serves as the company’s vice president, is carrying on his family’s tradition of excellence. The company is continuing to forge a path in the building industry while drawing inspiration from the family’s storied past in the world of construction. For example, Jack III’s uncle worked on the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, while his grandfather, Ollie Jack Hartsell, was a master carpenter. His grandfather, Jack Hartsell, inspired his father in woodworking, home building and circle staircases, which his father and Jack Hartsell III are continuing to specialize in today. His dad built upon this love of woodworking and building when he first opened Jack Hartsell Construction and instilled a strong work ethic as well as a passion for the business in his son. “I grew up in this business and it is a part of me,” Jack Hartsell III says. “My ten-year-old daughter, Caroline, is an aspiring artist; And, it is my hope that she and my brother Cole, who is in college at the University of Arkansas, will help us to continue to carry on the Hartsell legacy,” he adds. Aside from their raw talent and strong ethic, faith is important to the family and has been throughout the years. After Jack Hartsell Jr. finished a 13-month tour of active war duty in Vietnam, he was sent to a small village there to build a church before he returned home. It was the first Christian church in that part of the country, therefore forging a path for others to know Christ. The family credits their church, Little Rock’s Calvary Church of the Nazarene, for their continued success. “The church and our faith bring our family together and it’s a source of inspiration as we build homes to bring families together,” Hartsell says.

“Poised Taupe is definitely not your ‘boring beige.’ Shades of gray continue to dominate the landscape of paint, but there are those who definitely want something different. Poised Taupe just might be the answer. I think it would be great with a black and white color grouping.

Passionflowers, a runner-up for state flower, can also been seen in the design just below the bird. Turn to page 33 to read the full story.

Life/Local Talent

Meet... WINSTON TAYLOR FOR MORE THAN 26 YEARS, THIS AWARD-WINNING CERAMIC ARTIST AND LITTLE ROCK NATIVE HAS CREATED ONE-OF-AKIND GEOMETRIC SCULPTURES INFLUENCED BY HIS UNIQUE BACKGROUND IN THE AUTO INDUSTRY

HOW DID YOU FIRST GET INTO SCULPTING? I always had an interest in art, but I didn’t take any classes at all in public school. I had no training other than just raw talent. I thought I was going to be a racecar driver or a mechanic, which is something I had been doing for a long time. When I got out of the military, suddenly I decided I wanted to go to college and major in art. It came out of the blue! I took my first pottery class in college, well over 40 years ago, and I graduated with a degree in art. I was totally in love with it from the beginning, and I haven’t stopped. HAS YOUR AUTOMOTIVE BACKGROUND INFLUENCED YOUR WORK? Without a doubt. I think my pieces have a mechanical feel about them. Some of it is deliberate, and some of it is my natural tendency and affinity for certain shapes and things that I’m familiar with. ALONG WITH YOUR GEOMETRIC STYLE, WHAT ARE SOME SIGNATURE LOOKS OR TECHNIQUES YOU USE TO CREATE YOUR PIECES? A lot of my firing is done in raku, which in Japanese means “enjoyment.” It’s a fast firing technique that is very hands-on with a quick turnaround. That’s one of my favorite aspects of it, and I enjoy being involved in the firing from beginning to end. I also get a lot of influence from Native American style pottery. One of my favorite pieces has a highly polished surface that I varnished with a stone. This technique is a very meditative process that I love to use.

Designing the People’s House Q&a with Shayla CopaS

we’d love to hear your favorite memory of designing the arkansas governor’s mansion. There are so many wonderful memories from our participation in the design of “The People’s House.” My favorite would definitely be the time spent with our first lady, Susan Hutchinson. She has been such an inspiration, and we were blessed to have the time with her. We often say that the first lady is the third designer on the project as she has such talent and passion for design. We were also impressed at how much care and attention she took to make sure that “The People’s House” represented the people of Arkansas. Mrs. Hutchinson paid close attention to each item selected as she has such a grateful heart to all of the people on the Mansion Association who raised the nonprofit funds to help pay for furnishings. tell us about the famous wallcovering your team designed for the formal dining room. The custom wallcovering is definitely my absolute favorite item we designed. The first lady played an important role in this process and helped us with her knowledge of the native Arkansas birds in regard to scale, color, and stance. The pearlized silk wallcovering was particularly important because we took Paul Montgomery’s traditional chinoiserie mural and customized it into our own product design, which features the Arkansas Yellow Finch, blue jays, mockingbirds, female cardinal, and the passionflower. A lot of time and detail went into the wallcovering with several strike-offs from the manufacturer in order to obtain a realistic look. All of the birds and floral were hand-painted by artists in the factory just for our project. We also paid close attention to their placement. Marianna spent countless hours to make sure that each and every bird was in the correct position in the room. The end result is breathtaking and serene. what is it like to design a home with such significance to our state ? None of us took it lightly. It has truly been one of the most rewarding projects of my career. From the beginning we stopped to take note of the amazing historical “bones” we had to work with. We decided that the Rockefeller Rugs donated in the 1960s were our favorite of the pieces in which to get our inspiration. In the end, a lot of our products complemented the rugs. The wallcovering has tones of the rugs and we also designed custom trims for the project. Navy blue, cream, and coral were dominate in the rugs so we were in luck…The first lady’s favorite color is CORAL!

“This is the people’s house,” first lady Susan Hutchinson says of the Arkansas Governor’s Mansion. “It was important to me that the house feel like a home, and that the people who walked through the door felt invited.” To accomplish this, the main gathering spaces of the mansion—the living room and dining room—recently received a refreshing update. Shayla Copas Interiors donated its time to the project. The firm consists of designers Shayla Copas and Marianna O’Dea. The pair worked closely with Mrs. Hutchinson to update the two rooms, both of which are located at the front of the home just off the main entrance. The Mansion’s architectural features tend toward a more formal feel and this was definitely a consideration when selecting furnishings; however, the design team sought to make the spaces feel approachable. The oriental rugs in each room, which

were donated to the Mansion by the Rockefeller family in the 1960s, set the palette for the refresh and also played into the comfortable, yet refined feel that radiates throughout the spaces. The rugs feature coral and blue hues tied together in an intricate motif. The draperies in both rooms, as well as the upholstered furnishings in the living room, play off of these hues while accents of gold and crystal add a distinguished air. Detail was of the utmost importance to the trio of women. The jewel of the dining room is a customized Paul Montgomery wallcovering that features hand-painted native birds, including the blue jay, finch, cardinal, and mockingbird—Arkansas’ state bird. Additionally passionflowers—a runner-up for the state flower—are scattered throughout the design, making it even more personalized to the local landscape. The wallpaper was applied over muslin allowing it to be removed and stored (or reinstalled in a new location) should a future resident of the

Mansion decide to change the room’s décor. As a further nod to the state’s history, the Chippendale chairs placed around the dining table feature petit-point-stitched seat coverings that offer a pictorial history of defining events or characters. These are not new pieces but rather gifts that were lovingly made and presented to the mansion by a group of Pine Bluff ladies in the 1970s and still fit beautifully into the room today. In the living room, practical considerations were made to accommodate the family as well as guests of the Mansion. For example, the room’s overall lighting scheme was updated. It now includes a Thomas Grant custom chandelier, the gift of a generous donor, which hangs prominently in the center of the room. Additionally, wingback chairs that are large enough to comfortably seat tall guests—including six-foot-tall Governor Hutchinson—and a pair of customized, extended-length sofas provide seating for after-dinner conversations as well as more casual gatherings. A new coffee table with leather-inset slide drawers, which offer an ideal place to rest a cup of coffee, replaced a small tea table that had limited space. “The coffee Design Resources Interior design Shayla Copas and Marianna O’Dea, Shayla Copas Interiors, Little Rock, (501) 258-7396, shaylacopas.com 36 At Home in Arkansas | January/February 2017

table is more in scale with the room and is able to accommodate people when they entertain,” Copas says of the addition. Much as the customized wallcovering and stitched seat covers seen in the dining room reflect local history, the living room also features several nods to the Natural State. For example, custom-made pillows embroidered with the state seal sit prominently in the wingbacks near the fireplace while historical art covers the walls. Eagles, which are a part of the state seal, can be seen in a marble-topped table as well as the mirror that hangs above it. Sitting atop the table is a copper box from the USS Arkansas that was built in the early 1900s and served throughout World War II. All of these pieces of history evoke a sense of deep personal pride for Arkansans who enter the home, while the comfortable furnishings make them want to linger and learn more. “It’s really a grand day that people have been so generous through the association to give and help update the mansion. And it’s been wonderful timing for me to be here with Shayla and Marianna and work on this,” Mrs. Hutchinson concludes.

AN

Enchanting Orchid

ADD NATURAL COLOR TO YOUR HOME WITH A LOW-MAINTENANCE PHALAENOPSIS ORCHID For many people, orchids can be equal parts intriguing and intimidating. If you’re looking to nurture your first orchid bloom, try a Phalaenopsis. Known for their brilliant array of colors, these are one of the easiest varieties to grow—in part because they tend to thrive in the same temperatures that humans enjoy, preferring a range of high 60s and 70s. Adding to their ease of care, they require little light. They can be placed in almost any room of your home as long as they don’t receive direct sunlight exposure. When it comes to watering, less is more. They require an adequate drainage system that allows all water to completely draw off of them. Allowing them to sit in water will lead to root rot. Most Phalaenopsis orchids, such as the one shown here, come pre-potted in vessels that allow for drainage. Additionally, using a balanced fertilizer, which can be found at your neighborhood garden center, can be beneficial for continued growth and overall health. Follow these simple tips and you’ll likely enjoy continuous blooms throughout the winter season. Potted Phalaenopsis orchid available at Tipton & Hurst.

A Grand

New Home

DESIGNER MELISSA HAYNES HELPS A FAYETTEVILLE COUPLE CREATE A COMFORTABLE, NEWCONSTRUCTION HOME WHERE THEY CAN RELAX WITH THEIR GRANDCHILDREN AND MAKE MEMORIES

“It was a dream to build our own home since Dennis is a builder,” says Trude Moore of the Fayetteville residence that she and her husband recently completed. The pair, who raised their two children in a home on the east side of Fayetteville, are now empty nesters—well, unless you count the six young grandchildren (the oldest of whom is seven) who live nearby and frequent their grandparents’ home. As the Moores entered this new phase of life, they were ready for a new house with a lighter, more lively palette and an inviting, comfortable interior that welcomes the entire family. THE UNEXPECTED UPSIZE “Our original plan was to downsize,” Trude says. However, taking into consideration their two grown children, along with their spouses and children, they ended up increasing the square footage of their residence. “I wanted a place where they would be comfortable, and we could all enjoy it together,” she says. The floor plan accounts for this. A centrally located living room that adjoins to the kitchen creates the hub of the home. The house’s more private spaces, including a playroom, guest room, and the master bedroom and bath, radiate from this central point. Additionally, many rooms in the home have a sightline to other spaces, both inside and outside the home, allowing the Moores to keep an eye on the grandchildren even when they aren’t in the same room. “Their family has been growing exponentially, and I think they were excited to have a space where everyone could gather,” says interior designer Melissa Haynes, who was brought into the project early on to offer guidance on the home’s functionality as well as to give the space the style the couple desired. January/February 2017 | athomearkansas.com 45


In the dining room, grasscloth wallpaper lends a casual air while upholstered seats comfortably accommodate the Moores, as well as their children and grandchildren, during family gatherings. A framed Gracie wallpaper serves as art over the sideboard.

USER FRIENDLY Since the child to grandparent ratio in the house is 6:2 at many times, it was important that most everything be durable, washable, and stain-proof. “We chose fabrics that were kid-friendly so they could get on the sofa with snacks. We tried to be really cognizant of that in this room in particular,” Haynes says of the living room. Additionally, the fabric on the chairs in the breakfast nook wipes clean, while the bench’s slipcover can be removed and washed when needed. Comfort was also key. In the living room, Haynes had a Hickory Chair ottoman custom made to allow everyone a space to prop up his or her feet while lounging on the sofas or in the chairs. Even the formal dining room was designed with a desire to be inviting for both the couple and guests. Grasscloth covers the walls, providing a sense of warmth through texture, while a long wooden table (a piece that made the move from the Moores’ previous residence) has plenty of seating for the entire family. While the couple’s children and grandchildren were always in mind when it came to the home’s design and furnishings, the house was built for Dennis and Trude to enjoy. For example, Dennis wanted a view of the backyard from the shower. Haynes worked the floor plan to accommodate this while making other improvements for space considerations. Additionally, the Moores were keen on enjoying both the interior and exterior spaces of the home. In the living room, a NanaWall system of glass doors, which fold back in an accordion fashion, extend the footprint of the home onto the back terrace. Being in the building industry, Dennis outfitted the home with many advanced technological comforts as well. Digital control panels replace the need for numerous switches throughout the home; a Jetson-like sound (part of a wireless driveway alert system) signals the arrival of a guest when a car pulls into the driveway; and the family room’s television lowers into a chest when not in use. PEAK OF PERSONALITY To complement the open spaces and advanced features, a serene palette flows throughout the house, starting with Farrow & Ball’s “French Gray” in the study, which is just off the front entrance. This color echoes the hue of the shutters on the home’s exterior, and variations are repeated in the dining room and carry into the living room. “Melissa understood that I wanted light and bright with a little bit of color, and she helped me to do that,” Trude says. The master bedroom and bath feature blue—Trude’s favorite color—which is also mixed into the living room, breakfast nook, and other areas of the home. Additionally, after talking with the Moores, Haynes felt it was important that the furnishings have significance. She wanted the pieces used to not only include practical selections but also meaningful ones. For example, in the study, antique maps that belonged to Trude’s brother are prominently displayed over the settee for guests to see upon entering the home. In the living room, a framed collection of dried Texas and Arkansas wildflowers are a nod to the states where the family has lived. It is these personal touches—paired with the sound of little voices laughing while the Moores enjoy the company of family—that make the house a home. 46 At Home in Arkansas | January/February 2017

DESIGNER KRISTA LEWIS INFUSES HER LITTLE ROCK HOME WITH HER SIGNATURE AESTHETIC TO MAKE IT A COMFORTABLE AND WELCOMING PLACE FOR ALL WHO ENTER—INCLUDING HER YOUNG FAMILY

S T O R Y: T I F FA N Y A D A M S P H O T O G R A P H Y: R E T T P E E K ST YLING: CHIP JONES

T

There are certain times in life when a move is necessary—a job change, a desire to be closer to family, or when your dream house goes on the market. For Little Rock-based interior designer Krista Lewis, the latter was the case. “I loved our old house; we all loved it, but we were at a point where we didn’t know if we could or should make updates,” she says. “Since this [interior design] is what I do for a living and it’s my hobby and my passion, I’m always looking at houses on the market,” she laughs. As fate would have it, a house—not so far from her previous residence—was looking for her as well. FATEFUL FIND Krista and her husband, Dan, along with their three children loved living in Pleasant Valley. So, it’s no surprise the home she had her eye on was located in the same west Little Rock neighborhood. And, while she had never been inside the home, she admired its curb appeal frequently. “I had always loved this house,” the designer says emphatically. She was especially smitten with the home’s courtyard, which reminded her of the ones she and Dan had seen during the early days of their marriage while living in New Orleans. “I had always said, ‘If that house ever goes on the market, we have to go look at it.’” As luck would have it, the house did go on the market. Krista’s good friend, Emily Brown, drove by and saw a “For Sale By Owner” sign in the yard and immediately called her. After a year of negotiations, the house was theirs. “I knew it was going to be a process. It’s a bigger house; it’s an older house; and it needed a lot of work—and it still does—but I really wanted my kids to grow up and spend their youth in the house they are going to come home to when they are grown,” she adds.

The designer in her home’s entryway. Facing page: The loggia also serves as the home’s foyer. It has a grand presence thanks in part to its size and architectural features as well as the silk draperies that line the doors, which lead to the home’s courtyard. Krista toned down its formality with the addition of a seagrass rug, pottery, Asian-inspired lanterns, and exposed wood. The fabric on the table skirt (Lewis & Wood’s “Floreat”) was the starting point for the design and palette.

GOOD BONES Much as Krista adored the exterior of the home, she was now equally enchanted with the interior. “The light fixtures, paint, and carpet are all different but the architectural details were all here,” she says. For example, tall ceilings throughout the home as well as beams and a beadboard ceiling that are visible upon walking through the front entry didn’t disappoint. The loggia—which also serves as the foyer— is, perhaps, the most outstanding display of the home’s architectural design. “My husband refers to this room as the lobby,” Krista laughs. The long, gallery space, which January/February 2017 | athomearkansas.com 55

The dining room’s chandelier was an existing feature left by the previous owner that pairs beautifully with the room’s more simplistic table and ladder-back chairs. Facing page: The loggia’s settee, a piece that Krista purchased from a client, is covered in “Penelope Spice” a Bunny Williams for Lee Jofa fabric. The Suzani pillow seen in the center was a find from market that Krista thought was “meant for the house” due to it’s palette and motif. Wicker baskets and a sunburst mirror with wooden rays complete the relaxed nook and offer a juxtaposition to the room’s more formal architecture.

opens to the home’s courtyard, connects the front entry to the kitchen while running alongside and offering access to the living and dining rooms. “It’s perfect for entertaining,” the designer adds. “We’ve even put a table with the bench we have here to create another dining spot for Thanksgiving dinner,” she says. The floorplan also seemed to have been constructed with the Lewis family in mind; there are four bedrooms and a tucked-away downstairs space that houses K. Lewis Interior Design. Krista notes that all of the rooms are spacious enough to accommodate comfortable furniture and allow one to move around freely yet they aren’t large just for the sake of being large. “It seems cozy but a little more grand. It’s Southern and very comfortable,” she says of the home’s overall design. BRINGING IT TO LIFE The previous homeowner also shared an affinity for one of Krista’s favorite hues. “I have always loved orange—even my prom dress was orange,” the designer says. Shades of the hue could be found in a few places around the home, and the designer ran with the idea to put a youthful modern spin

on the house. For example, a terracotta and indigo tile was the previous homeowner’s choice for the kitchen backsplash. “Some people might not like the terracotta in our kitchen but I love it. I think it’s timeless,” Krista says. She carried this color scheme into the adjoining breakfast nook and family room with blue-and-white drapery panels that feature orange trim as well as a vibrant orange lantern that hangs over the table. Custom seat covers and throw pillows add touches of the colors without overwhelming the room. Similarly, light orange silk drapes that were in the formal dining room were relocated to the loggia and paired with a rug made of seagrass squares to make the area feel more casual while still giving the space a sense of grandeur. While it’s clear that many spaces throughout the home have been infused with the designer’s aesthetic, Krista notes that creating a home is an ongoing process. “I’m doing things in increments,” she says of the other portions of the home that have yet to receive her designer’s touch. “For me—somebody that this is their passion in life, my hobby and my career—I’m not ever finished. It’s something to look forward to, and I know I’ll change my mind as I go,” she concludes. January/February 2017 | athomearkansas.com 57


“I wanted some color in this house because everything in my previous home was neutral,” Krista says. “I decided to have the thread throughout be orange and blue, and then threw in some green because it’s very natural.” The artwork over the fireplace is by artist EMYO. It was placed after the palette was set and the furniture was ordered. “Sometimes you start with the artwork but this one found me,” she says. The ottoman is on wheels, allowing it to be moved easily when the Lewises’ young son is ready to challenge friends in a Nintendo Wii game.

For Carrie Kidd, a life-long passion for good design led

to a later-in-life career change she didn’t expect. After college, she had plans to attend New York’s Parsons School of Design, but settled down to start a family instead. “I worked in advertising, stayed at home with my children, really just did a little bit of everything,” Kidd recalls. Meanwhile, her friendship with a Little Rock designer— who also helped decorate her Pulaski Heights home—planted the subtle seeds of a career change. “Kevin has been a dear friend for years,” Kidd says of Kevin Walsh of Bear Hill Interiors. “We are a

good collaborative team. I like to push boundaries and he can reign me in when needed. I have learned a lot through just being his friend.” Eventually, Kidd’s stylish point of view began to catch the eyes of friends, who started asking for her input in their homes. “I have always been interested in style and fashion,” she says. “But since becoming a mother, my interest has shifted to something that is more permanent. I love creating a home that will be lived in and loved forever.” Kidd describes her style as “new traditional with a twist,” which is especially evident in the modern, artful way she decorated this classic Little Rock home. “I don’t like to put things in a box, or have anything be too controlled or perfect,” she says. “I love to add a sense of whimsy and personality to a space to create an environment that is beautiful, but also very livable and comfortable.” STARTING POINT Kidd connected with this client in the organic way she meets many of them: Through the word of mouth of friends. The renovation of the house was nearly completed—the walls and floors were finished—so Kidd came in to bring the spaces to life for the active family. “This family is very lively and social,” she explains. “They travel a lot but are also very much homebodies, and wanted the house to be their sanctuary.” Graphic details, artful shapes, and unexpected colors combine to create an inviting space with a surprise around every corner.

TRADITIONAL WITH A TWIST “My client wanted to go kind of crazy and funky—which I love—but I reigned it in so that we could respect the pretty traditional bones of the house,” Kidd says. The symmetrical entrance is clean and nearly monochromatic—with creamy white paint accented with a soft gray door and shutters—giving little hint to the dramatic colors used inside. A self-proclaimed lover of neutrals, Kidd says that her clients inspired her to think outside the box in the color department. Soft corals and pinks mix with vibrant teal in the dining room, and the den is lacquered from floor to ceiling in a dramatic blue. Modern lighting adds a punch to the traditional architecture, while similar components (brass, glass, Lucite, and quartz) connect the pieces to each other. “Black and white is also a recurring theme,”

Kidd adds. “I used it often in art and fabrics to tie the spaces together and give them a cohesive feeling.” FAMILY-FRIENDLY STYLE At first glance, the home’s spare, artful look doesn’t seem kid-friendly, but the youngest members of the family were never far from Kidd’s mind as she outfitted the home. Their main hangout space is the living room, where a medium-toned sofa and pair of patterned chairs stand up to daily use. In the adjoining breakfast room—where the family takes most of their meals— French-inspired chairs appear dainty, but are upholstered in wipeable patent leather. Kidd also made way for some adult-inspired space, in particular the blue-lacquered den, which she imagined as a cozy, quiet place to unwind at the end of a busy day.

ARTFUL EYE Overall, the home is void of heavy visual clutter, allowing every unique piece—and there are many!—to stand out and be appreciated. The abstract work of Barcelona artist Heather Chontos is found in several rooms; for example, the large piece over the den’s fireplace was commissioned for the room. In the entry, the oversized black-and-white work is actually abstract wallpaper by Kelly Wearstler that Kidd had framed. In the dining room, she reimagined a family heirloom by removing the artwork’s traditional frame and having it set in a Lucite box. Even the furnishings feel artful. Materials such as brass, Lucite, burled wood, and raffia lend a textural layer to the modern spaces. “Carrie has a great eye, and always knows just how to push the envelope,” Kevin Walsh says.

The master bedroom features a marbled wallpaper by Thibaut, sconces by Circa Lighting, and raffia-wrapped bedside tables. Kidd had the homeowner’s traditional cane bed painted black. Abstract paintings are by Heather Chontos.

KATHRYN J. LEMASTER, ALLIED ASID RESIDENTIAL MODEL HOME Arkansas Symphony Designer House XXIII Sitting Room // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: The design concept was inspired by a ladies lounge for various activities from reading and writing to relaxing and entertaining. The goal was to revitalize the previously bare area by making a unique space where the homeowner could create, entertain, or relax. The space was intended to feel imaginative and encourage creativity, thus inspiring and refreshing all who enter. RESULT: This light-infused space, which is sprinkled with whimsy and accented with calming tones of cheerful colors, strikes the perfect balance between enlivening and relaxing its guests. Ten live plants that are scattered throughout the space bring a refreshing aspect to the room while providing an uplifting sense of calm. The space reflects a story of creative collaboration by highlighting handcrafted items, original art, and repurposed finds that are mixed with new treasures.

LINDSEY BINZ, ALLIED ASID RESIDENTIAL BATH Deerberry Bath // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: The goal was to use high-end materials and innovative ideas to design a classic, yet modern space that has a European twist. The client’s only request was to take out the corner tub and add an oversized shower. They trusted the designer and the contractor completely and gave them full control over the project, which helped make the goal a reality. RESULT: The clients were very pleased with the edgy, yet timeless design. The space features a combination of marble, wood, and mixed metals to make the room feel inviting and luxurious. Careful space planning provided maximum use of the room. The freestanding tub was placed behind the shower glass for a seamless look. Custom floating vanities, seen on either side of the room, open up the space visually. Heated floors and colorful original art add to the high-end, resort-like feel.

AMANDA L. BENHAM, ASID, LEED AP COMMERCIAL HEALTHCARE Arkansas Heart Hospital Lobby Renovation // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: As a specialized medical facility on the forefront of innovative cardiovascular medicine, the client’s goal was to provide an exceptional atmosphere that is equal to the first-rate level of care given to patients and their families. The 4,000-square-foot renovation provided an expansion and upgrades to the existing lobby, kitchen, cafe, outdoor dining area, and restrooms, while allowing for the addition of a convenience store. RESULT: The use of gentle curves and natural materials, such as the wood ceiling and ledger stone, achieves a serene and calm environment. The wood path through the space was created using a porcelain tile for the ease of maintenance. Neutral colors in a variety of textures and tones were used to provide a background to the vibrant pieces of artwork.

KATE EAST, ASID, LEED AP & MONICA COLVARD, ASID COMMERCIAL INSTITUTIONAL & OVATION AWARD: 2016 COMMERCIAL PROJECT OF THE YEAR Dr. Robert Charles Brown and Jill Lestage Brown Hall, Arkansas Tech University // Russellville, Arkansas GOAL: The main goal for both the client and the designers was for the building to become the face of campus and to tell the story of the campus brand. It was also important that this building be innovative and incorporate current technology. RESULT: Adjacent to the main entry, the Admissions Department welcomes students with colorful, contemporary furnishings that reinforce the campus culture. A custom wall graphic anchors the area, and the university ambassador, Jerry the Bulldog, sits in his custom dog pen. Prospective students gather for orientation in a uniquely shaped wood-clad room to watch a video presentation before touring campus. Innovation and technology are present through features that maximize flexibility for new teaching methodologies and collaborative learning styles. Comfortable niche areas with various seating types encourage student and faculty interaction and are ideal for individual or small groups. All spaces include power sources for charging personal devices as well as wireless access.

2016 ASID WINNERS

KATE EAST, ASID, LEED AP & MONICA COLVARD, ASID COMMERCIAL INSTITUTIONAL Wilson Hall, NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University // Jonesboro, Arkansas GOAL: The school wanted students to be the highest priority in the design. They also wanted to create an efficient and functional medical school on a limited budget and spend the most money on creating areas for study and refuge. A light and clean space with areas for study and reflection was requested. RESULT: During the renovation, walls were strategically relocated to allow natural light to flow deeper into the space and the ceiling height was raised. Contemporary furniture and updated finishes, which give the structure a clean color palette, transformed this historic building into a modern school of medicine that is inviting and conducive to the teaching style of osteopathic medicine.

BRITTANY ATKINSON, ASID, NCIDQ, LEED GA COMMERCIAL BUDGET CONSCIOUS Barbara | Jean, Ltd. // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: After 40 years in their location, the client wanted to completely modernize the store. It was important the design didn’t deter long-term clients but also appealed to the generation of boutique and Instagram shoppers. The premier luxury boutique “caters to the client for whom only the best will do.” The client desired to create strong, impactful impressions for the departments while reflecting a graceful unity of the store as a whole. RESULT: The soft and neutral scheme was created to be a sophisticated yet fresh backdrop to a highly edited selection of the world’s most important designers— think boutique department store. A dramatic change to the cosmetics department really set the tone for the remodel. Its new layout creates a more intimate atmosphere for the makeup stations and a more accessible retail experience for customers. New white flooring, brighter white paint, and a Carrera marble feature wall brighten and modernize the space.

2016 ASID WINNERS

BRITTANY ATKINSON, ASID, NCIDQ, LEED GA HOSPITALITY SERVICE Table 28 // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: “Modern American cuisine with a twist and a bold menu with Southern flair” is the mantra of this restaurant. The existing space featured a sea of tables and lacked ambience. The client desired to create an attractive restaurant that reflected the high-quality food, while creating an aesthetic and atmosphere strong enough to help make this a destination restaurant. RESULT: Table 28 strictly serves dinner and is entered by descending a few feet from the lobby of the Burgundy Hotel. So, the concept was to juxtapose the hotel’s scheme of white with black accents with a more dramatic story of navy, charcoal, and walnut tones. Tufted upholstery plays to the Southern flair, while white accents in the trim, tables, and bar top play to the “modern with a twist” theme. A variety of seating zones, including an island of corner booths, created an ambience where diners can feel a sense of escape.

BRITTANY ATKINSON, ASID, NCIDQ, LEED GA AND BROOKE ALLEN, ALLIED ASID COMMERCIAL SMALL CORPORATE ABC Financial // Sherwood, Arkansas GOAL: ABC Financial wanted an office that impressed clients and garnered their trust while also alluding to the fact that they were technologically capable of handling customers’ accounts. They acknowledged a modern, creative space would help reflect this ability. They also desired a clear and simple floor plan that located clientfocused space in the core, while still allowing offices and shared workspaces to be visible and easily accessible. RESULT: The data management and payment processing company serves fitness centers. Their new office serves as a location for clients and potential clients to visit, so the energetic design was inspired by the fitness centers it serves. The client’s signature, bold yellow is used as a unifying and enlivening element. Parallel bands of yellow in the flooring and ceiling connect public spaces and link the reception desk to the open, collaborative lounge space through large glass windows to make the spaces feel as though they are one. Although the reception area is secured, this element helps guests feel integrated immediately.

SARAH GOSS, ASID COMMERCIAL INSTITUTIONAL The David & Barbara Pryor Center for Arkansas Oral & Visual History // Fayetteville, Arkansas GOAL: The goal for this project was to create a space for audio and video recordings of Arkansas’ history and cultural heritage. The acoustical performance of all spaces was a priority, as was keeping an existing stainless bank vault. Flexibility of spaces and mobility of furnishings was very important so the space could be easily changed to host a variety of events. RESULT: For maximum flexibility, a warm, neutral palette and colored lighting were used. These groundwork elements help to transform the space for different functions. The neutral palette allows the Pryor Center’s collection of memorabilia to become a focus feature. The space’s existing vault was transformed into purposeful sound-tight interview rooms. A variety of acoustical panels were added to the walls and ceilings. All furnishings, including the workspace tables, are easily moved and can serve multiple purposes.

ALISSA OATES, ALLIED ASID, AKBD RISING STAR AWARD: EMERGING PROFESSIONAL Wright Kitchen // Little Rock, Arkansas GOAL: The client requested to have an updated, more transitional look to match the style of the house. They also desired a more functional layout but did not want to sacrifice any space. RESULT: High-contrast finishes and sleek fixtures, hardware, and backsplash tile updated this kitchen to give it a “less is more” feel. The peninsula was straightened out where the cooktop had previously been awkwardly perpendicular to the seating area. A coffee bar was added to the right of the refrigerator for convenience. Major appliances and plumbing stayed close to their original position.

“I will always love the January/February 2012 issue. I was a freelance writer with the magazine at that time and had the opportunity to interview James Howard for a story about a house he designed in Little Rock. The home was one of my first encounters with what is now widely known as ‘new traditional’ style, and I was amazed at how beauty, comfort, and detail seemed to flow effortlessly throughout each room.” —TIFFANY ADAMS, MANAGING EDITOR

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2015

“I picked the 2015 issue. In my almost 15 years with the magazine, this is the first issue where we did something totally different by putting trendsetters on the cover. Some I’ve watched since I started, and some are fairly new to me. But each one of them brings a unique flair to the table. Many of them have received national attention, but their hard work and dedication is seen throughout our state.” —JENNIFER HAY, SENIOR ACCOUNT EXECUTIVE

GUTTER SPACE--I WOULD SUGGEST NOTHING IMPORT LAND IN THE AREA.

Dr. Abdul Ezeldin, his wife Sandra, and their three children, Ashley, Ryan and Alex, flank the front doorway of their new French Provincial-style Little Rock home, designed by Ruby Architects and built by Jack Hartsell Construction.
