In honor of At Home in Arkansas’s 20th anniversary, we’re revisiting some of our most-loved stories and rooms from the past. This month, we’re sharing our picks for spaces that live large—even if they have minimal square footage.
“I love, love, love the color scheme in this adorable Heights bungalow designed by Bear Hill Interiors. Those teals, blues, and grays are to die for. The clean lines and light hues really open up the small space and make it seem like a cozy, happy home.” —Stephanie Maxwell, Editor
“I remember being inspired by Daniel Keeley’s personal home when we published it in 2013. This successful landscape designer took a fresh approach to renovating his 1,000-square-foot cottage indoors and out. Despite its minimal square footage, it is full of creative ideas and stylish finishes for a small space.” —Laura LaRue, Senior Graphic Designer
“Lance Johnston’s family downsized significantly when they moved into a 1907 Queen Anne farmhouse. Their aesthetic is cozy and charming, and I admire how they kept and highlighted the historic character. However, their description of renovating with the intent to promote togetherness and not waste any space might be the most charming part—a perfect example of living large in a small space.” —Lauren Cerrato, Art Director
“I love the concept of functional living in a smaller space without compromising your personal style. Anna Cottrell and Pam Nolen were the perfect designing duo in this project! The space planning makes the home feel spacious while you can still see so much of Anna’s personality in the decor.” —Megan Beard, Account Executive
