This past Saturday I was thrilled to spend the day touring Moss Mountain Farm in Little Rock, Arkansas. It’s a chilly December day filled with holiday magic as we are able to tour the entire farm, including the beautiful 1840’s inspired home immaculately decorated for Christmas.
The first view we receive is this enormous 350 year old Post Oak tree appropriately known as “Big Sister.” She sits in front of the home and is said to be what drew P. Allen Smith to the property. As beautiful as the home is, you are drawn to the magnificent tree and can see immediately why the house is built in line with it.
1840’s Inspired Home
The front porch of the home on Moss Mountain is beautiful and timeless, decorated with evergreen, magnolia leaves, and pine cones.
Once you step inside, the staircase greets you and I have to tell you, I could not take my eyes off of it!! Browns and gold are added to the bannister greenery, along with stems of cotton.
Just around the corner we find the home’s gorgeous Christmas tree!! I fell in love with the theme and colors they used!!
Finally, we venture out onto the screened porch just off the kitchen and living area, and just wow!! This might be my favorite area of the home and now I think I need one!!
This is just one of the beautiful views from the house. Here you can see the pond and barn that houses the sheep in the distance.
This is the view of the first screened in porch and you can see the Arkansas river in the distance.
And the stockings are hung by the chimney with care…..beautifully I might add!! The shades of brown and gold are just gorgeous!!
This centerpiece covers the dining room table, along with so many books filled to the brim with information a girl could peruse for hours on end!!
Friends, I have so many more pictures to share of my Saturday tour of Moss Mountain Farm and I can’t wait to show you the rest of the house and the garden! But…. they will have to wait until the second part of this story!! Enjoy and I’ll see you again soon!
