Magazine of Northwest Arkansas


Join Boston & Ozarks

BostonandOzarks.com is an online publication devoted to home and living in Northwest Arkansas.  My name is James Kevin Connell and I am a transplant to Northwest Arkansas from Dallas, Texas.  I am Publisher and Editor-in-Chief at BostonandOzarks.com. After nineteen years here, it is surely, now, my home. If you love every minute here as much as I do, I think you will enjoy what we bring you here in BostonandOzarks.com. 

From things for the home and home design, to recipes, outdoor living and lawn & garden, to the arts and local events, we try to give you a comprehensive look at the possibilities for those of us that call Northwest Arkansas home.

We hope you enjoy it.

It's Time To Play In The Dirt

Living Coral, this subtle pinkish orange, is Pantone's 2019 Color of the Year.

Pantone defines Living Coral as "an animated, life-affirming shade of orange, with golden undertones." For those that don't know, Pantone is a New Jersey-based company that is recognized world-wide as the color authority. Their real focus is on print colors. They produce a line of fanned color swatches that show related colors. They are widely used in design, print, floral and related industries. Each year, Pantone declares a Color of the Year.

Are You Growing Catnip or Catmint?

They are both members of  the mint family, genus Nepeta, and cats love them both, but there are differences, according to Gardening Know How. Catnip has a weedier appearance and catmint has lavender flowers and is often used as a decorative plant in flower gardens. See the full article HERE.

Walton Arts Center presents Dixie's Tupperware Party, February 19-24. Dixie Longate is a Tupperware Lady and plans to throw her first-ever Tupperware Party in Northwest Arkansas. But, they tell us, it's "not your grandmother's Tupperware Party." The focus for Dixie is not on the Tupperware, but on the party! It sounds pretty bawdy, so you should leave the kids at home for this one.

Tickets are $25 to $45 and available HERE.

 Going Unsophisticated

Here's a great article from Southern Living. 

It's "7 Things That Make A Home Unsophisticated." Their angle is quite fundamental, but not not always obvious. Remember that you still have to live in the space you are decorating. Catch the article HERE.
