Finally time to tour the home!

The welcoming foyer’s buffet table hosted three silver bowls filled with apples.

I was immediately reminded of this verse-even though the apples are green, not golden.

Proverbs 25 v.11

Our lovely guide, Laura, Allen’s personal assistant, led us into the front living room.

We were here for about 30 minutes learning all kinds of things about the home. Allen’s green, sustainable living philosophy was carried out in every aspect of the home. Attention to architectural history made the house feel much more than a decade old. Laura gave us some background information on Allen’s family and education as well as his current endeavors.

Front Room

Allen’s love of painting can be seen throughout the home.

After our introduction to Moss Mountain, we were given time to explore indoors.

Duncan sent us on our way.

Mom and I decided to start at the top and work our way down.

rug-covered stairs

I loved the casual runner stapled to the stairs leading to the upper floor.

The view wasn’t bad either!

Four beds plus a reading/working/playing area would surely be a treat for guests.

The master suite was on the level below. Elegant meets quirky in this “hat rack” in the bathroom.

The mirrors in their dark frames looked very nice against the pale blue wall. Heaven help me though! I wanted to straighten them so badly!

The use of “real” furniture in the bathroom was a nice touch.

My pictures of the bedroom and reading nook didn’t really turn our that great. You will just have to plan a visit of your own to see them!

Just off the library area was the sleeping porch. Ahhhh!

Do you see the tub there behind my Mom?!

Okay, here is a better picture.

Wouldn’t you just LOVE to hang out there a while, gazing out at the Arkansas River?

Ahhhh!

On to the guest room.

There is a great view of the 300+ year old tree from the guest bathroom.

As we headed back to the main floor, I snapped a couple more shots of the entry table. The symmetry is so appealing.

The ottomans under the table look great! They are nice to have for extra seating if necessary. The orange with the green apples and silver bowls makes quite a statement!

The kitchen was outfitted with beautiful Allium from the garden.

Some of our picture taking was cut short when we found our tour group was already headed to the garden!

I couldn’t resist one last shot–Mom on the curved settee.

See you in the garden next.
