In our May “Before & After” issue, we featured the Little Rock home designer Miguel Newberg shares with her two young daughters and her husband, Andy. As someone who works in the field and who was undertaking a full-home renovation of her own, Miguel knew how important it was to give each family member a dedicated space of his or her own. Inspired by his love of the Razorbacks, Miguel created a sports-themed man cave as a retreat for Andy to enjoy.
To create the space, they enclosed the home’s carport. Built-in cabinetry surrounds the room’s main attraction—a television for watching Hog games—while plush furnishings create a comfortable environment.
The surface of the brick bar is covered with souvenir ticket stubs from some of the most memorable events Andy has attended. “We kind of came up with the idea together, but he still couldn’t believe I went for it,” she recalls. Easily accessible to the kitchen and the main living room, the space is a now masculine getaway for the man of the house without being too far away from day-to-day activities.
