This was one of my favorite Holiday homes (from 2014) that I’ve visited over the years, so I’m sharing again today. This will for sure get you in the mood for Christmas decorating. Enjoy this one again!
Again this year, I had the pleasure of visiting Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles Home for the Holidays decorator showhouse in Buckhead. It’s a newly built home on Habersham Road, a 7,200 s.f. English style home sited on top of a hill. Inspired by the English Arts and Crafts style, the stone and brick residence, designed by Harrison Design and built by Sheehan Built Homes, the home fits right in with the lovely landscape it is nestled in.
So, come along with me for a tour of this stately home, all decked out for Christmas. The Christmas décor is there in subtle nods to the Holiday. I’m not going to narrate all the pics, so just enjoy the views. I will add the designer names along the way. There are a few pics mixed in that came from the Press kit.
Front Porch – Randy Korando & Dan Belman (Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts)
Entry & Stairhalls – Liz Williams (Liz Williams Interiors)
Inside the foyer.
Dining room and Butlers Pantry – Beth Webb (Beth Webb Interiors)
This dramatic black and white dining room was very eye-catching. It takes a big and well-lit room to pull off black and this one does it well. I do love the combo of high contrast Black and White. There were lots of dark painted rooms and hallways in the showhouse this year and they are all very well done. I just wouldn’t want to live with dark walls at my house. But for a showhouse, it’s fun to see a different approach, so keep that in mind as you are looking.
Note that amazing ceiling in the dining room.
Study – Danielle Rollins and Bill Ingram (Bill Ingram Architect)
I couldn’t get decent pics in here because there was little light.
Sitting Room – Amy Morris (Amy Morris Interiors)
Loved this space, it was really pretty.

Kitchen & Breakfast Room – Mark Williams and Niki Papadopolous (Mark Williams Design Associates)
Back Porch – David Ecton and Lance Jackson (Parker Kennedy Living)
OK, so the back porch was my absolute favorite space and I took lots of pics here. Because it was all blue and white and very Southern, it grabbed my heart. I could totally live in this space!
Living Room – Susan Ferrier (McAlpine Booth and Ferrier Interiors)
Bar Powder Room & Vestibule – Eleanor Roper, Debbie Weitz & Kent Drotor (B.D. Jeffries)
Grasscloth on the stairs.

Master Bedroom, Bath and Sitting – Michel Boyd (Smith Boyd Interiors)
Loved this covered porch off the master bedroom.

Guest Room – Catherine Happe, Nancy Hooff and Carter Kay (Carter Kay Interiors)
Bedroom and Bath –Margaret Kirkland (Margaret Kirkland Interiors)
Bedroom and Bath – Barbara Heath (The Mercantile)
Bonus Room & Vestibule – Krista Nye Schwartz and Tami Ramsay (Cloth and Kind)
Laundry and Powder Room – Brian Patrick Flynn (Flynnsideout)
Hallway – Brian Patrick Flynn

And that’s the tour for this year! I hope you enjoyed seeing this magnificent house. It’s fun to see the different designers take on decorating a house like this and of course, some rooms draw us in more than others, but it’s always a fun tour to see. I thoroughly enjoyed it once again this year and appreciate the invitation by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles magazine.
If you are in the Atlanta area, the home is open until December 7th.
Absolutely beautiful! Love the outdoor patio spaces. Also noticing beautiful wallpaper and fabrics.

I think your home is so much nicer!
Doesn’t look like a very comfortable home, does it? A little too, too for me.
I agree with you on the blue and white porch area. I also liked Amy Morris and Mark Williams’ rooms.

I love it! Lots of inspiration!
Looks like an owl flying by the bay window in the living room. What is that?
Hi, Amy, had to go back and look. I don’t remember it in person, but it does look like an owl. I have no idea, maybe it’s wings or something, some sort of art.

okay…so I’ve said this same thing on another post, but WHAT’S WITH ALL THE BROWN AND BEIGE? No wonder you like the blue and white back porch…there’s actually color there. I know trends come and go, but the brown/beige is a bit ‘beige’. Oh well…I’m just not with it. However, I do like a lot of the gorgeous light fixtures and chandeliers.
I am with you, Becky, I like color too. There has definitely been a trend towards neutrals, but I just have to have color in my life too.
Leslie Sinclair says
I absolutely LOVE the ceiling in the dining room…wow!
Bill Frey says
I had forgotten how much I loved some of these homes. The house with the multiples trees and nutcrackers on the veranda was one of my favorites. I may have a biased opinion, but outdoor holiday decor is just as awesome as indoor decor. It’s the first thing people see when they come to your home, and the first thing that welcomes you home when you return every day. Can’t wait for this year’s Home for the Holdiays Tour! It’s only a few weeks until the Moonlight & Mistletoe Opening Night Gala!

This one was better than some of the “show homes” you’ve shared but still way to colorless for me and I couldn’t do the black walls. Yes, the porch was the prettiest part of the house!! No warm and fuzzy Christmas feeling though, with the Christmas decorations. These show homes usually have a few things that are interesting but overall, I had much rather see “real life” homes. I hope your parents are doing well and that your Dad is adjusting. Dementia is so hard to deal with and it’s so sad to watch. My mother-in-law is 98 and still up and about and healthy physically, but has terrible dementia and is in Assisted Living. Prayers for you and your family during the holidays since it will be a bit different from your usual gatherings.
