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:
P. Allen Smith (my new BFF). That’s for you Amy Blount. xoxoox
Ok, are you ready for the inside of his home? Here’s the 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?
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.
This next area is a guest room on the second floor:
Second floor sleeping porch. It complete with a soaker tub:
A nice little sitting area:
My blogger friend Laurie:
There was a bear skin rug draped over a chair in the mini library area & I couldn’t help it: #bearselfie
Bathroom on 2nd floor:
Stairs leading up to the 3rd floor children’s suite:
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.
Girls bedroom area:
You probably want to see P.Allen Smith’s actual room though, don’t you? Here it is:

It was a beautiful house. It was fun to share the day with precious blogging friends:
