Today I am sharing Part II of my posts on P. Allen Smith’s Moss Mountain Farm. My last post (HERE) included a tour of the public floors of Moss Mountain Farm and today I will give you a look into P. Allen’s bedrooms, guest rooms and his wonderful collections.
The American Trinity – as fondly referred to by Allen
Allen shows off his antique library ladder that folds into a long pole….genius!!
Allens Antique Tester Bed from New Orleans
The soft lavender guest room which had two full size beds and a desk….so cozy. Reminds me of my childhood bedroom.
I felt so at ease in his home maybe because he is a collector. I don’t think you can live and grow up in the South and not have collections. We all have generations of china, silver, books and chairs (oh the chairs that have been passed down to me) that come with large families and favorite grandchildren (wink wink).
I loved all of the collections on display and they all gave a view into the very studied and refined tastes of a Southern gentleman. I can’t wait to share the gardens with you next. As you know P. Allen Smith is a landscape architect and the grounds of Moss Mountain Farm are AMAZING. Just wait…..
