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.

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
