Sold: Laughlin House, Bentonville
I've taken photos of it for over a year, trying to get the personality right. I think it's a little spooky, but we must also say it laughs (can't avoid that one). It's not crazy, but it looks like it's just waiting to tickle you. It's not one of those over-the-top B&Bs. It's contained, yet it flows gently. It's majestic, yet it's understated. I think there's ore in there, waiting to be discovered.
So, how to paint it? I don't really do understated. I've just gotta laugh.
