Bright splashes of color and a tongue-and-groove ceiling keep the eye moving inside this updated post-and-beam in Old Las Palmas, which was home to philanthropist and late first lady of Arkansas Jeannette Edris Rockefeller in the 1990s. Floor-to-ceiling glass centers on an oasis-like setting with a pool, spa, fire pit and tanning deck, punctuated by the peaks of the San Jacinto Mountain Preserve.
