Inside P. Allen Smith’s Home

Pinable

 

The other day I mentioned that I went to down to Moss Mountain farm to visit P. Allen Smith’s home & hear about AR529’s for college student savings preparations.  Today’s the day I want to show you what his home was like.  I got in the car with a couple other blogger ladies: Shannon Magsam with NWAMotherlode & Sarah Hood with Musings of Motherhood:

Ok, are you ready for the inside of his home?  Here’s the front door:

HIS FRONT DOOR

This is me sitting on his sofa.  It was comfy & looked like it was either antique or from Ballard Designs (like most things in his home).  Either way, pretty fab.

We got a great tour & history from him.  His face here looks a little like Patrick Swayze’s from Ghost because of that dang window behind him, but what can you do?

I loved this entry table.  I love the painting & those gold star sconces.  Such a warm feeling about it.

This is the downstairs sunroom.

This is the sitting area just off the sunroom near the kitchen:

A lot of character in this nook.

There were about 20 bloggers in the kitchen, so this is the only good picture I got of it unfortunately.  Love this window though.  It shows his egg love, doesn’t it?

KITCHEN BETTER

Having worked on & off as an organizer, I really appreciated this secret storage hidden behind doors that serves as room dividers.  It provides easy access to china for entertaining.

I love this style of furniture.  I wanted to get a book & a cup of coffee (& my iPhone – who am I kidding?) & sit for a spell.

There was a bear skin rug draped over a chair in the mini library area & I couldn’t help it: #bearselfie

It’s a happy, casual, lived-in area.

Throughout the house there were several older pieces painted with a bright modern color that I loved & lots of chunky mirrors.
