Each year, I get the most fun invitation to tour the Home for the Holidays Christmas showhouse, hosted by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles magazine. And every year, I am always excited to see this beautiful home, which is different every year, but always full of Holiday cheer and inspiration. Several designers are involved in bringing this showhouse to life with not only beautiful furnishings, but also Christmas decorations as well. It’s a big bonus to get to see this home in person. It’s open to the public for a good cause (Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta), so if you’re in the Atlanta area, hope you’ll stop by and tour. You’ll be glad you did!
It runs through December 11, so you’ve got plenty of time to make the tour. This year the house is in the Peachtree Battle area of Buckhead, which is just a gorgeous area of Atlanta. I love all the historical homes that make this area so pretty. I think the Colonial brick home was built in the 1930’s, but has been completely renovated and brought up to date in every way, but still retains historical charm and character.
I’m not going to talk through the tour, so just enjoy the beauty of the house and decorations. Here are all the designers taking part in the showhouse this year. They all did a wonderful job! I’ll be sharing Part 2 next Friday.
Here’s a fun little video tour too!
I got a copy of the paint colors for the showhouse and the wallpaper, so you can see it all on the sheet. I hope you enjoyed this tour as much as I did and it gets you in the mood for Christmas decorating. Mine is all finished and I’ll be sharing it all with you as the weeks unfold. I’m so looking forward to enjoying the whole month of December with my sweetheart. He has several weeks off and it will be so great to have more time to do things with him, including the annual Marietta Pilgrimage tour. It’s my birthday month too and I love this time of year! We have some fun things planned.
Enjoy your long weekend!

Do you know what color the exterior of the house and shutters are painted? I didn’t see it on the paint list. I would love to know because I am getting ready to paint my house similiar colors.
HI, Monica, no since it’s not on the list, I have no idea either. It is gorgeous though, looks to be a dark creamy white.
I believe the shutters are Behr HDC Basic Khaki
Thank you, that’s good to know!

This house is stunning…can’t wait to see what you do with your home Rhoda! Glad you are going to enjoy December and take some time to enjoy…Cheryl Ann
Hard to believe it’s the same house that sold a little over a year ago: http://www.zillow.com/homedetails/2490-Woodward-Way-NW-Atlanta-GA-30305/35901466_zpid/
The Christmas decorations are understated and beautifully done. Thank you for sharing the Atlanta Home for the Holidays – great photos!
Looking forward to the Southern Hospitality Christmas tour, Rhoda. Enjoy this magical time of year with your sweetheart!
Hi, Merlyn, thanks for sharing the listing, that was fun to see! I loved the house then too, but it’s definitely been modernized. I wouldn’t have had a problem with the Before version at all. It’s a gorgeous house in both versions! Thank you so much, I plan to enjoy the month of December to the fullest!
Beautiful home for the holidays!
