 Today, I am sharing the home of Arkansas interior designer, Amber Doggett, which appeared on the pages of At Home in Arkansas.

In 2011, this home was featured in At Home in Arkansas.  It was built by Bill Parkinson Building Group of Little Rock for his own family.

This home, in the historic Quapaw Quarter of Little Rock, Arkansas, was built in 1922.  I love that the current owner, Cassie Toro, has refurbished it while keeping as much of the original beauty as possible.

Between Naps on the Porch

I am so excited that warmer temps are here (hopefully to stay until next Winter)!  So, I’m dreaming of outdoor dining.  We’d all love to dine on the screened porch at Between Naps on the Porch.

HOUSE BEAUTIFUL (Michael S. Smith)

This room had me at the red checked curtains.  I could definitely be comfortable in this pretty room.  It has some very formal pieces in it, but the checked window curtains seem to bring all of it down to an inviting level.  Not too formal to make a person feel uncomfortable.  I love a wonderful mix of patterns.

I am having problems with my computer.  Grrrr!  I had more faves in the draft of this post, but my computer shut down, and I lost several of my posted images.  Our grandbaby has doctor appointments out of town, so I am keeping his two older sisters.  Life is kind of hectic, so I didn’t have time to go back and reconstruct the post.



I could live in this outdoor space.  I love that huge fireplace (another mantel to decorate!).  I think the floor is scored and stained concrete, which is what we did in our family room and sunroom, and I love it.  All of the ceiling angles are so interesting.  I am wondering if that massive chandelier provides much light.  I really like that iron frame on the bench, and blue and white fabric is always appealing to me.

This just looks like a cozy place to sit and chat or read a book, or even set up the laptop (well, maybe not my laptop, since it is giving me problems), and do some web surfing or blogging.  You may have picked up on the fact that I love ceiling beams, so I’m usually attracted to any room that has them.  In this image, I also like that window, and the upholstered chairs.



The grouping of botanicals on the wall first caught my attention.  I think the blue-gray color of the mats around the botanicals is so pretty.  I like the carved detail on the sofa and round end table too.




This room makes my heart beat faster.  Those gorgeous wood floors, the wood planks and beams on the ceiling, and that massive stone fireplace directly across from the bed – sigh.  Not one, but two ginormous chandeliers! And isn’t that a wonderful group of windows?




What an elegant, and yet comfortable, room for bathing.  All of those deep blues contrasted with the bright whites look so fresh and relaxing..  Did you notice that crown molding?  Exquisite.  Love that painted china hutch used for towel storage.  And to top it all off, there’s that spectacular chandelier!



Bunk rooms always appeal to me.  Although this is an ad, I can just visualize a vacation home, where years of memories have been created by children who bunk together during family vacations.  The contrasts in the room appeal to me.  The white board and batten walls, the rough log beds, those industrial light fixtures, and the big sliding door combine to give the room so much personality.

I’m glad you stopped in to see some of my faves.  Hopefully, I am through with my computer problems.  If you don’t hear from me for awhile, you’ll know that it finally crashed completely.  I’m holding my breath!  laurie

I’m again sharing some of my favorite inspiration photos, which I’ve saved from different sources.

I’ve always loved an entryway that has room for a big round table.  This image also appealed to me because I think the sidelights and transom around the door are beautiful, and that floral arrangement on the table is spectacular, not to mention the bell jar light and those two large blue and white pieces under the table.

This room, in a vacation home, just looks like fun.  Those built-in bunk beds would thrill my grandchildren.  Love the chairs with slip-covers, which I assume can be removed for washing – perfect in a get-away that should be fun and relaxing for everyone.

I saved this picture, because I love the way the table cover is made, and this just looks like a lovely place to have a cup of tea and chat with a friend.

I could do some serious relaxing in this bathtub.  I love the claw-foot tub and the tub fixtures.  Did you notice the pretty wainscoting ~ such a nice way to dress up the bathroom.  The wainscoting, combined with the rustic floor and rusty chair, give the room interesting contrasts. (If I ever decided to get out of this tub, I’d want a little rug for my feet, and I’d like to see a larger mirror or print on the wall.)  How peaceful this is.

I think it is the colors and the symmetry that appeal to me in this bedroom.  Blue and white is a favorite color combination of mine.  Some of the elements I like:  those framed prints on the wall; the subtle blue and white striped rug, and the white bedding with touches of blue (although I think it would be prettier if the folded blanket at the foot of the bed was a lighter shade of blue).  I love the desk, with a view out the pretty window, framed by blue print curtains and plates (although I’d probably use a few more plates on those walls.  I’m envisioning two rows of 3 or 4 plates on each side of the window. You know me, more is always better!)

Now this is the way to cook outdoors!   Look at that spectacular oven and grill, all of those cabinets for storage, and a built in sink!  There’s a fireplace to keep you warm during the cooler months and comfortable furnishings for lounging.  Did you notice the chandelier?  I like that it’s pretty, but not obtrusive.  I’m not sure I’d want to have to keep this space clean, but I do love dreaming about it.

I know I’m not alone when I say that I love everything at Patina Farm, but when I saw this gorgeous secretary, I think my heart stopped for a minute.  Those colors; that gorgeous bonnet top; the shape of those glass doors; that clock ~ okay, you get the idea, I love everything about it!
Who was I BI (Before Internet)?  (No, I’m not talking about that I had a smaller bottom, since I sit on it so much more than I did BI.)  I’m just wondering how I managed without all of this amazing beauty right at my fingertips.  I hope you enjoyed seeing a little of what inspired me this week.  laurie
