Erin Wood, Director of Et Alia Press
After a short career in law, Erin earned her masters in writing. Soon after, she helped found Little Rock-based Et Alia Press, which publishes books about emerging artists, health and wellness, and local histories. “These shelves are filled with books that I used more in years past—researching for college or grad school papers, heavy case books for law school, and high school favorites that have my notes in the margins.”…
Seasonal Statement: Welcome guests with fall foliage and accents that can easily transition to winter months
Jennifer Gibson of Little Rock’s Good Earth Garden Center says the front-door display at coworker Billie Shields’s house has been on Billie’s to-do list for some time. “She has always wanted a pumpkin fall entrance, and this is the first house she’s lived in where she could do it,” Jennifer says. “And if you are going to have an eye-catching pumpkin display, you need the rest of the accents to complement it!”…

A love of the outdoors and a desire for minimalist, uncluttered style led Lauren and Casey Cerrato to give this Craftsman cottage new life
“Organic modern.” That’s how At Home in Arkansas art director Lauren Cerrato describes her personal style and the vibe of the 1920s Hillcrest Craftsman cottage she shares with her husband, Casey, their pup, Hush, and the baby boy they’ll welcome this spring. However, this inspired-by-nature aesthetic is one she’s come to over time. “In our previous house, the walls were mint green and my office was yellow. It was all over the place; but I really like color. I remember talking about our dream house, and Casey would say, ‘Let’s just do gray and white and wood,’ and I would think, that sounds so boring and sad.”…
A Mountain Home couple relaxes into their forever-home farmhouse
The house Traci and Steve Burges call home is a “farmhouse” in more than one sense of the word. Yes, it has the comfortable, traditional appeal of the farmhouse aesthetic; more literally, though, the house sits on eight acres of Traci’s family’s farmland, with a red barn out back and miles of pastures in view….
A young family brings their love of down-to-earth style with them as they settle in to a new Northwest Arkansas home
Moving from upstate New York to Northwest Arkansas, the owners of this Fayetteville home were eager to bring a few of their favorite things to their new location—namely the style of their previous home. “We had a Craftsman house in New York, and I really wanted to stay with that style for our next home,” one of the homeowners says. However, after online real estate searches proved to be unfruitful, she and her husband realized they would need to build to get the look they desired….
When Kelly Lovell and Walt Todd started barbecuing together over a decade ago, they didn’t necessarily see it turning into a full-time gig. “They started out at tailgates, barbecuing whole hogs, serving at weddings and competitions—it was just a hobby with a little bit of pocket change,” says Walt’s wife, Brett, who also handles the business’s marketing and sales. “If you would’ve asked us then if we’d be here now, having a food truck and doing this full time for two years, we’d be like, ‘What?’” This year marks 10 years for the Count Porkula food truck. In September, the business hit another milestone when it opened a permanent location at The Rail Yard, the newest addition to Little Rock’s budding East Village.
