Supha Xayprasith-Mays

Where I live: in Beau Vue Estates of Little Rock with my husband, lawyer and former state Supreme Court Justice Richard L. Mays Sr.

Occupation: I'm the founder and chief executive officer of Inclusion magazine ( and Inclusion Job Inc. (, a development/consulting company specializing in marketing/media; job and career training; and people empowerment. I've been in the people empowerment business all my life and in corporate, field and executive retail for 30 years.

My favorite space is: My open, high-ceiling poolside studio, which I sketched on a napkin and made a reality. It features condo-like styling — all white, with yellow accent decor. It has no walls, just large windows and multiple skylights to give it the feel of being outside. It also has a full kitchen, steam room and full bar area.

Why? Here is where I relax, looking out over Pinnacle Valley and watching the sunset. I also read and practice my golf putts here as well as soak in some sun while indoors, make a martini, exercise, do yoga, meditate, and enjoy a steam treatment and shower. I call it my SheSpa Space Sunroom. My husband is welcome always, but I built him his own nearby HeSpace.

If I could make one change to improve this space, I would: expand it.
