set the table

As our editorial team started brainstorming about this issue, here’s what I noticed: Everyone’s favorite memories about November revolve around food. Thanksgiving dinner, to be exact. An aunt’s perfect homemade rolls came up, as did the anticipation of hand-mashed potatoes—you know, those special-occasion recipes that only make an appearance once or twice a year. These anecdotes speak to a feeling we wanted to share throughout this issue. After all, what makes you feel more at home than sitting down to a meal prepared by loving hands while swapping tales about the people who originated those recipes? We had the pleasure of witnessing such stories from Amy Hannon—owner of Euna Mae’s kitchen store and author of the soon-to-release cookbook, Love Welcome Serve— while shooting our equally stunning and delicious spread at her home (page 41). However, Thanksgiving isn’t all about the food; it’s also about where these sacred traditions take place: in our homes. In open, welcoming spaces like Julie and Jeff Fackler’s wraparound new construction house (page 60) and in Angela and Keith Taylor’s customized kitchen (page 50), where, if you’re lucky, Angela might offer you a piece of her mouth-watering apple galette. If you’re prepping your own home for the season, we’ve handpicked 21 finds that will get you ready to crank up the fireplace for the first winter chill (page 15). And if you’re already thinking about starting a big home project in 2018, check out our reader-voted list of the state’s best homebuilders (page 77)—you’re sure to find someone to help you bring your vision to life. Here’s hoping that vision features love and laughter gathered around a holiday dinner.

Southern-inspired gift shop southern life has opened its doors in the Heights in Little Rock. The store specializes in quick and quirky gifts, including a range of candles, tea towels, novelty books, bar goods, and men’s ties. “I really enjoy the art of personal shopping,” says owner Heather Wardle. “I feel like the hardest people to buy for are the most fun!” Gift boxes built around themes are one of the store’s unique offerings that make picking up a last-minute present a cinch. Some of these are already available on the shop’s online store, and Wardle hopes to expand online availability soon. 5717 Kavanaugh Boulevard, Little Rock, (501) 612-2178, shopsouthernlife.com

As the owner of Euna Mae’s kitchen store and the author of a soon-to-be-released cookbook (which features the recipe for Aunt Nance’s Jalapeño Corn Casserole, shown here), Amy Hannon knows her way around the kitchen.

Each textile comes from an original painting by me. I take an image of part of a painting, and I work it into a pattern on the computer. Then I send it off to have it printed on fabric and have the pillows made.

HOW CAN PEOPLE FIND YOUR WORK OR SHOP FOR PIECES? I post all my new work on my Instagram page

(@allisonhobbsart), and my pieces are for sale on my website (allisonhobbsart.com). I also work with designers and have some work in interior design and home stores in Little Rock and Memphis—which is my hometown. If you want to see pieces in person, you can find a list of those retailers on my website.

YOU’RE QUICKLY BECOMING A NAME TO KNOW FOR ABSTRACT WORKS, FIGURES, AND MORE. HOW LONG HAVE YOU BEEN IN THE ART INDUSTRY? Since I can remember I have been painting and

drawing. I was in honors art in high school, and that is where I learned a lot of technique and developed a passion for art history. In college I started doing commission work for those who knew I painted, but it still took me a few years to develop confidence in my work and really get out there. I was expecting my daughter in 2016, and the timing couldn’t have been more perfect to go full time as an artist. My husband, Brock, and I took the leap of faith, and I started Allison Hobbs Art, LLC that November.

SO, DID YOU HAVE ANOTHER CAREER BEFORE THIS WAS YOUR FULL-TIME VENTURE? Yes, I was previously in advertising and

and watching the world through her eyes has changed my perspective on a lot, and I am seeing this play out in my work in use of color and in risk. I am constantly teaching her new things and letting her go crazy in paint or color. Talk about inspiration: Put your toddler behind a paintbrush and watch how free she is. It is my ultimate goal to leave a legacy, not only of amazing work, but of courage. I want to create a pathway for her and other artists, to let them know that with faith, a good support system, love, and hard work, you really can do anything you set your mind to do.

IS THERE ANYTHING ON THE HORIZON FOR ALLISON HOBBS ART THAT AT HOME READERS SHOULD KEEP ON THEIR RADAR? We do have some very exciting news coming soon concerning an actual space where you will be able to come and get your contemporary art fix. I will leave it at that for now, but stay tuned for more details. Allison Hobbs Art, LLC, Cave Springs, (479) 957-0714, allisonhobbsart.com Instagram: @allisonhobbsart

sales; I worked with the fabulous family over at KNWA, our local NBC news station. I loved my role there, but it obviously was not what the Lord had planned for me long term. I definitely learned a lot in that position and adapted it into marketing for my art business.

YOU HAVE A RANGE OF SUBJECTS FROM ABSTRACTS TO FACES AND FIGURES. DO YOU HAVE A FAVORITE? It’s hard to have a favorite! I

think it is whatever I am enjoying at the moment. Right now, I’m in an abstract phase and working on different techniques and trying to stretch my color palette.

WE SEE YOU’RE ALSO CREATING PILLOWS. WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO TAKE YOUR ART TO TEXTILES? I was actually searching for

fabric to recover a chair and wanted an abstract play on a specific pattern. I came across one that I fell in love with and said, “Why can’t I do this myself?” I kept seeing this art-in-fabric movement evolve in the interior design world, so I researched the process of how to transfer my art onto fabric. It’s been a huge learning curve for me, but I have enjoyed seeing the fabric come to life. November 2017 | athomearkansas.com 29

CYCLE OF LIFE

While much of The Natural State is bike-able, Bentonville and Rogers are particularly cycle-friendly communities. To wit: Multiple local bike shops, cycling events, a bicycling-themed brewery (see the next page), and more are keeping cyclists busy in the area. With several of those shops offering rentals and daily group rides, it’s never been easier to go for a spin while you’re in town. See the below listings for bike sales, service, tours, and rentals.

A DAY AT THE MUSEUM

MAKE TIME TO VISIT THE AREA’S COLLECTIONS OF FINE ART, LOCAL HISTORY, AND CREATIVE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.

CRYSTAL BRIDGES MUSEUM OF AMERICAN ART

ROGERS HISTORICAL MUSEUM

You’ll never see the same Crystal Bridges twice: With thousands of pieces in the permanent collection, the museum staff is constantly rotating works from the vaults to the galleries. There’s about to be even more to experience at Crystal Bridges: The Momentary, a new visual and performing arts venue that will feature an artist-in-residency program is scheduled to open in 2020. The center will be housed in a decommissioned plant located south of the museum. crystalbridges.org

Rogers Historical Museum is committed to preserving and promoting the town’s history through five permanent exhibits, which include a re-creation of the town’s First Street and Hawkins House, a Victorian-era home restored to its early 1900s décor and furnishings. rogershistoricalmuseum.org

FALL FOLIAGE

Gourd-geous! SILKS A BLOOM DESIGNERS USE A CONTEMPORARY PALETTE AND TEXTURED CUTTINGS TO CREATE A FRESH-FLORAL CENTERPIECE FOR THE SEASON P H O T O G R A P H Y: R E T T P E E K

Don’t let the name fool you—the professionals at Silks A Bloom are becoming one of central Arkansas’s hottest vendors for fresh-floral event design. “Our customers loved working with us and encouraged us to branch out to include designs with fresh-cut flowers a while back,” says co-owner and designer Dale Aldridge. “Now, many people are surprised to learn we’re more than just silks,” he adds of the shop’s event floral service. For the upcoming season, we asked head floral designer Tammy Copeland to create a Thanksgiving centerpiece that would stand the test of more than a few rounds of guests (this one can last up to two weeks with proper watering) and also turn heads. “I wanted to do something with a more chic, sophisticated look, and I love all the gray and white heirloom pumpkins and gourds,” she says. Grayblue stalks of wheat, amaranthus, black cattails, leucadendron, and seeded as well as gunni eucalyptus add to the display’s gatheredfrom-the-garden appeal. Aldridge also notes that a coat of black paint brought a sleek flair to the arrangement’s traditional urn. Silks A Bloom, Little Rock (501) 228-6989, silks-a-bloom.com

Need a little inspiration for your Thanksgiving menu? You’re in luck: Amy Hannon, owner of Euna Mae’s and host of KNWA’s “Cooking Today,” recently penned her first cookbook, Love Welcome Serve: Recipes that Gather and Give, and it’s stocked full of recipes perfect for this season (or any other for that matter). Here’s what she had to say about writing her first book and how she sets the table for her own family’s feast.

MIX NOT MATCH

Use what you have to set the table, and don’t be afraid to combine different place settings, colors, and pieces. “The collected look keeps you from fretting over not having 16 matching plates. Just mix in other patterns and sizes, and have fun with it,” Hannon says. 42 At Home in Arkansas | November 2017


FOR AMY HANNON, writing a cookbook felt like the next natural step after opening her Springdale kitchen shop. “I had secretly dreamed of writing a cookbook, but I never imagined it’d ever really happen until I was pursued by a literary agent who believed in me and my message,” Hannon says. “My heart’s desire is to encourage people to use their homes to impact the lives of others. I call it ‘intentional kitchening’—and I hope my cookbook does just that.” Filled with Southern comfort recipes, the book is designed to inspire and educate cooks who enjoy showing hospitality to loved ones. “Some of the recipes are family recipes, and some are my own. All of the recipes are very approachable and delicious! There’s even a section in the back where I include our favorite menus for gathering folks as well as my favorite menus for making and giving food to people,” Hannon says. Above all, she believes “there’s nothing prettier than a gracious hostess” and reminds us not to obsess over details but rather keep things in perspective and look to what really matters during this season. “Remember to focus on all the things that you have to be grateful for—and be hospitable. Love, welcome, serve!”

HOLIDAY HAM WITH RED PEPPER GLAZE SWEET POTATO SOUFFLE WITH BUTTERY PRALINE TOPPING

| SHOP | 2 pounds fresh Brussels sprouts, stalks trimmed and halved 4-6 slices raw bacon, chopped into pieces 5 cloves garlic, roughly chopped olive oil juice of one lemon salt and pepper ¼ cup balsamic vinegar 4 tablespoons honey fresh rosemary leaves from 2 sprigs ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes | PREPARE | Preheat oven to 425°F. Put sprouts, bacon pieces, and garlic on a large sheet pan, doing your best to get the sprouts in a single layer and not piled on top of one another. Drizzle well with olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with a good dose of salt and pepper. Rub around with your hands to coat. Spread back out into a single layer and bake in oven for 30 minutes, tossing halfway through cooking. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, stir together the balsamic vinegar and honey. Bring just to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, allowing to reduce for about 5 minutes. When they are done, carefully transfer Brussels sprouts to a pretty serving bowl. Stir the rosemary and red pepper flakes into the glaze, and then pour over the sprouts, stirring to combine.

Line a sheet pan with parchment paper; set aside. In a saucepan over medium heat, toast the pecans for a few minutes, stirring often, until they smell nutty and aromatic. Reduce heat to low. Stirring as you pour, drizzle the sugar mixture over the pecans, and stir, stir, stir, until they’re coated. Remove them from the heat, and spread them out on the parchment-lined sheet pan. Allow the coated pecans to cool for at least an hour. In a small bowl, microwave chocolate chips and coconut oil on high for 1 minute. Stir, and microwave 30 seconds more. Stir until smooth. Dip half of each pecan in chocolate and then return it to the parchment-lined sheet pan. Allow to cool at room temperature for 30 minutes then refrigerate until chocolate firms.

KEITH TAYLOR HAS BEEN STAGING MODEL HOMES FOR DECADES, so walking into this Fayetteville neighborhood’s spec house could have been another day in the office. However, upon inspecting the floor plan, he found himself envisioning his family, which includes wife, Angela, and son, Bryn, moving into the space. “We only lived about a mile and a half from this neighborhood but I honestly didn’t know it was here. As soon as I saw the open floor plan, I could see us in that house,” he says. Using his approach to new traditional design, which includes a “layered but not cluttered” aesthetic, Taylor created a home that embraces a mix of old, new, and reinvented.

52 At Home in Arkansas | November 2017


COMFORTS OF HOME

“My style is cozy,” Taylor laughs. “I mean who doesn’t want to be cozy?” Each space of the home reflects this feeling thanks to a variety of textures that extend from floor to ceiling. “I especially love Belgian linens and sisal rugs,” which can be seen throughout the house, providing just the right mix of softness and interest. “I think these materials create a visual warmth,” he adds. The palette of the home follows a similar philosophy. “Our colors are cream, creamier, and creamiest,” Taylor says. “I believe in layering different neutrals, and even if I do a color, it’s going to be a soft shade. There’s no overstimulation of color or pattern, so that your eye can really rest in each space.”

I’M A VINTAGE SHOPPER. I LOVE A MAKEOVER, AND I’M WILLING TO PUT IN THE TIME.” —Keith Taylor

54 At Home in Arkansas | November 2017


OLD MEETS NEW

Antique and vintage furnishings— many of which have been reworked to adhere to the aesthetic—fill each room of the home. “I’m a vintage shopper,” Taylor says, adding that he enjoys finding worn benches, chairs, and tables and reinventing them with slipcovers and coats of paint. Case in point, the wingbacks in the living room are Goodwill finds that have been painted and recovered, while the breakfast table’s dining chairs were purchased on eBay and updated by Taylor. “I love a makeover, and I’m willing to put in the time,” he says. However, not everything in the home has age. “I also like new finds,” Taylor says. He notes the French bistroinspired barstools as well as the woven pendants, which both bring character and texture to the kitchen’s island.

November 2017 | athomearkansas.com 55


COLLECTED AND COOL

As with many traditional homes, collections play a role in the personalization of the space. English ironstone plates, platters, and serving pieces are dotted throughout the kitchen and dining spaces. “I like the simplicity and imperfection of these pieces; again, I think that goes back to my love of textures,” he says. The appearance of birds—both in imagery in décor and in the form of real finches in a beautiful cage outside the bonus room—is another subtlety that is apparent in almost every room. “I think this is some weird analogy that I have with nesting,” Taylor laughs. “At the end of the day, everyone has to have a place to land.” DRESSED FOR THE SEASON

Finally, thanks to the flowing neutral hues and thoughtful placement of furnishings, the house is a welcoming backdrop for fresh-picked flowers and elements that are reflective of the time of year, thus adding to its warmth. “I really enjoy seasonal décor. I like to subtly layer in the season to reflect what’s going on outdoors and at that time of year,” Taylor says. “For me, adding these details and creating a home is important because it is where my family is—and that’s everything.”

CHANGE OUT THE EXISTING LIGHTING AND CEILING FANS. Whether it’s in the interior of the home or on the exterior, swap out any fixtures that don’t suit your style. This is such an easy fix and a way to bring your own style and personality to the space. Plus, you can use this as an opportunity to address any lighting concerns.

PAINT THE WALLS AND CEILINGS. We all know there’s nothing like paint to totally transform a room and make it reflect your style.

SWAP OUT THE CABINETRY HARDWARE. Pretty pulls in a fun style and color can work wonders when it comes to transforming a bath or kitchen. I’ve found that Hobby Lobby and Anthropologie have great options.

REMOVE BUILDER GRADE TOWEL RINGS AND BARS IN THE BATHROOMS. These are often oddly placed and can limit adding a piece of art or a mirror over the tub or beside the vanity. They’re easily removable, and minimal touch-up painting is usually required.

INCORPORATE VINTAGE ARCHITECTURAL ELEMENTS. These pieces add instant character. For example, I added a pair of large painted corbels to an otherwise unnoticed space that transitions from our kitchen to dining area. You can pick up these finds at local antique stores or outdoor vintage markets and add them to your home through the years.

FRESH TAKE ON WHEN JULIE AND JEFF FACKLER DECIDED TO BUILD from scratch in Bentonville, they had a few “musts” in mind: First, they wanted a one-story home where they would be comfortable after retirement. Check. Second, with their kids grown and out of the house, they wanted to live a little smaller. Check. And third, they wanted to be able to walk to downtown restaurants and events. Check. After finding a nice flat lot about three blocks from the Bentonville square, all that was left to do was turn a sketch of her dream home into the real deal. “Our builder, David Harris, along with his architect [Kevin Canada] translated our floor plan from a napkin at Table Mesa [a Mexican restaurant now within walking distance of the Facklers’ well-situated house] to paper,” Julie says. With help from local resources, Julie tackled the bulk of the design herself: “Let’s just say, thank goodness for Pinterest, Traditional Home, and At Home for inspiration,” she laughs. Timeless furnishings and neutral tones anchor the home’s classic style while geometric shapes, seen on multi-faceted pendants and hexagonal bathroom tiles, give it a modern spin. The result is a stylish home that feels contemporary yet warm.

GO WITH THE FLOW

A U-shaped floor plan wraps around the back patio dining area where seven sets of French doors open onto the outdoor dining space—three from the living room, three from the kitchen, and one from the master bedroom. “We love being outside and wanted the access to get in and out freely. We also wanted as much light as we could grab,” Julie says. Additionally, an open-concept kitchen, dining, and living space creates the continuous flow the Facklers craved. “The house lends itself to entertaining,” Julie says. “We also seem to get more company being closer to downtown, which we love.”

TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM KITCHEN WORK

Having worked with her on their previous home, the Facklers returned to Andi Stephens of Kitchen Distributors for their kitchen design. “Honestly, it’s a completely different style than we previously had, so when I approached her with our ideas she was very open and supportive,” Julie says. “I brought pictures and a vision and we worked together to make it happen. Her eye for details is so good.”

KEEPING IT SIMPLE

“This new kitchen is crisp and clean, simplified,” Stephens says, adding that Julie wanted open shelving for plenty of display space. “I love the idea of being able to find things you use every day without needing to open all your cabinet doors. [Julie] is great at arranging things, which is a talent you must have to live in a kitchen like this.”


THE MASTER BATHROOM HAD TO BE LIKE A STAYCATION RETREAT.” —Julie Fackler

REFINED RETREAT

An elegant master bathroom recalls neutral hues and light-filled windows found throughout the rest of the house. A straightforward design disguises some of the room’s more high-tech features, like a steam shower and heated tile floors. “The master bathroom had to be like a staycation retreat,” Julie says.

INSPIRED BY NATURE

A boat-shaped structure from Restoration Hardware in the corner of their bedroom pays homage to Julie and Jeff’s love of kayaking and canoeing, and the exposed beams and wooden side tables further play up this connection to the outdoors. To the right of the bed, a set of French doors open out onto the patio.

HOP ON IT

THE SWING OF THINGS

We love these pillows that showcase Hunt Slonem’s “Hutch Print” for Lee Jofa’s Groundworks collection.

Tucked behind the living room, with windows overlooking the pool and backyard, is a small sunroom with a hanging swing. Accented by large windows, a mature fiddleleaf fig tree, and natureinspired patterns, the room echoes the outdoor world that surrounds it. “We love going in there to enjoy morning coffee and tea and a good book on rainy days,” Julie says.

AUGUST 2009

“Having been here since the start of At Home, it’s hard for me to say that I have only one favorite issue. However, this is one that comes to mind. The homes highlighted have style and sophistication but are still functional for families. And, I love the colorful rooms used in each of the kids’ spaces.”

August 2013

FRESH RUSTIC DESIGNS

“Like many of our Family Homes issues, this one was full of color and life— I love all the images of kids and parents moving through their spaces. There’s also an adorable kids’ fashion spread and an interesting collection of antique ABC plates. Maybe it’s time to bring back a Collections section!” —STEPHANIE MAXWELL, EDITOR

JUNE 2013

“I remember this being an allaround fun issue to work on. It was packed full of beautiful features, including an outdoor entertaining story (that made the cover), amazing homes on the lake—one of which I was lucky to help style—and all things summer. It really is still one of my favorites!”
