After finding out they were expecting their second child, the owners of this Little Rock, Arkansas home decided it was time to expand their 1,940 square foot cottage. The wife had two requirements for her new home… “I wanted it to be very traditional, like a home that had been in the Heights [neighborhood] for years,” she told At Home Arkansas. “And I didn’t want to change the footprint. I feel like we already had a happy-sized yard for our kids to play in, and I didn’t want to lose any of it.” Working with architect Chris Milligan, they were able to achieve this by adding a second story and enclosing the carport. Jeremy Carter, designer at The Shade Above Lighting Collection, was enlisted for interior design. A trusted advisor, Jeremy had also designed and coordinated the couple’s wedding! The entire team worked together to infuse historic charm throughout the house to help it look like it had always been there.
And for the holidays, the theme of the family’s Christmas decor is natural and fresh, said Jeremy. “We didn’t want a Christmas tree in every room, but we wanted some sort of Christmas in every room, so I added a little magnolia, pine, cedar, and red berries here and there.” Let’s take a look inside!
