It is always a great pleasure to visit the Atlanta Holiday Home hosted by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine. A lot of work goes into these homes and it’s always fun to walk through and see them all decked out in beautiful furnishings and also festively dressed for the holiday season.
As is usually the case, this year’s Holiday house is in Buckhead, the prestigious neighborhood in Atlanta that has beautiful architectural homes and is home to the GA Governor’s mansion. This newly built home is a contemporary take on an English estate and is filled to the brim with beautiful architecture and design. Some of the finest designers in the Southeast have come together to make this house a show stopper. I think you will enjoy it!
The house is designed and built by Harrison Design and KBD Construction. The 14th annual showhouse in the heart of Buckhead is situated on one acre with a finished basement and is the second collaboration between the respected architecture firm and developer for an Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles signature event. The charity beneficiary of the showhouse is Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.
The house is open to the public for tours through December 11th, so be sure and get tickets if you want to tour this year. It’s a fun way to spend an afternoon.
With more than 10,500 s.f., the home features 5 bedrooms, six full baths and three half baths on three levels.
All the holiday florals on the outside are by Dan Belman and Randy Korando of Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts, a wonderful shop to visit if you’ve never been.
This mailbox swag is outstanding!
As is the front door swag and beautiful urn with tree.

You know I loved this covered porch with all the blues & greens!
The artificial turf was being installed around the pool. Brought back memories of ours!
I missed one space that I see on the house map. The upstairs guest suite above the garage, designed by Trudy Stump, Heather Parker, & Wren Caples, Huff Harrington Design. Sorry I missed that one, I’m sure it’s gorgeous, but I had no idea it was up there.
That’s the tour this year for the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Holiday Home. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing it in person and I hope you enjoyed the tour too. I’m finishing up my Christmas decorating this weekend and will be sharing it all the next couple of weeks, so stay tuned. It’s not that different from previous years, but it’s beginning to feel festive around here. Merry Christmas y’all!

What a fantastic house! Amazing details. I was surprised at how many of the ceilings were painted and the drama it adds to each room. What a fun tour. Thank you. Merry Christmas!
THIS tour was very appealing. Each space was unique but seemed to flow nicely.
The designers seemed to be very interested in making each room play well with each other.
Didn’t want to rush through Thanksgiving and Fall season.Gathering up those decorations to bring on Christmas season 🎄

Rhoda, Thank you for another exciting tour. Each room was unique and beautiful unlike anything that I would use in my comfortable country home but fun to see the other side of decorating.
I noticed your reflection in some of the pictures that you were snapping pictures with your phone. Were these gorgeous photos made with your telephone? If so, would you mind sharing what kind of phone you use and any of your secrets to such great shoots?
P.S. I hope to visit your parents soon when I go to visit my friend. I am so happy to hear your Dad is home from the hospital. Merry Christmas.
Hi Linda, yes I use my iphone 11 Pro Max for all my photos these days. It does a great job. I’m sure the newer versions are even better. Thanks for going to visit my parents. Dad is back there and doing pretty well.
My gosh that house with all its colors and patterns was over the top. My eyes could never find a place to rest.

Thank you so much for bringing us these tours. I liked the tree in the game room. Otherwise, no, no, no, no, no. Just a bit too outrageous for me. No relatable designs for me and nothing that I would remotely consider inspiring. Many years ago, my cousin’s designs were chosen for Callanwolde’s Christmas Tour, actually several years in a row. We came to Atlanta for Thanksgiving and would go with her to “help” get the room ready for the grand Gala and tour. It was so fun to watch the designers work and see their designs come to life during the few days before opening up the home. Because it was a historic home, no nails were allowed in the walls and no faux foliage. I’ll never forget the glorious aromas of all the different fresh Christmas greenery in that huge, beautiful home. That, IMHO was relatable. Definitely, different strokes for different folks. 😉
HI, Deb, I visited Callenwolde a few years ago at Christmas and you’re right, it is gorgeous!
