Bear-Hill Interiors in May Issue of Southern Living
Owners of Bear-Hill Interiors, Kevin Walsh and Brett Pitts’ 1969 ranch home in Hot Springs, Arkansas was recently featured in the May 2010 issue of Southern Living. Their weekend home overlooking Lake Hamilton was transferred from a dated ranch house to a open, multi-functional home.
Kevin tells Southern Living that, “The whole house is really just one open room…The challenge was in the space planning.”
The main focus in the dining area is the beautiful view. The table is centered in front of the wall of windows.
The wall-to-wall carpet was removed and replaced with glossy hardwoods and the walls were all painted white (Sherwin-Williams Pure White). Kevin is quoted as saying, “We didn’t want anything overly stimulating. When we invite our friends to the lake, they add all the color.”
“When it comes down to it, this place is just our casual, comfortable retreat from the real world,” says Kevin, whose day-to-day life as a designer includes lots of color and pattern. “The simple white palette is the perfect escape for us.”
