Feature Friday: Home for the Holidays Showhouse 2016, Part 2

I hope you enjoyed last week’s Home for the Holidays Showhouse Part 1 tour here in Atlanta.  If you missed it, go back and take a peek. I shared the first floor last week.  It had a lot of beauty packed inside that gorgeous exterior, so I’m back to today to share the rest of the house with you, the upstairs areas.

This Buckhead home off Peachtree Battle was built in 1930 and recently underwent a huge renovation.  One of my readers posted this from Zillow, the house before it was rehabbed and it was beautiful in its Before state as well.  It’s always fun to see houses going through transformations and brought up to the current century and I think the builders did a great job with this one. It still has the charm of an older home, with all the amenities of a new house.

Again, the Home for the Holiday’s house is open to the public (for tickets) until December 11th, so stop by there if you get a chance. Fun way to get inside these Buckhead homes, which is always a treat.

These first 3 pics above were taken by their photographer.  These Christmas tours always get me inspired with my own home decorating for the season!


Enjoy the tour and you can see all the designers on this page. They put in a lot of hard work to make this place come together and it is beautiful.  Just remember that even though some spaces might not be your thing, it’s the whole showhouse concept that they are working to accomplish.   So, look at it for the inspiration and beauty!

    Um…. the room with the golden Olympic Rings on the walls and the purple flowered settee… JUST. NO. I’m guessing somewhere (in outer space) there is a client who will embrace that decor. LOL Thanks for again pulling back the curtain on high style decorating. Happy Friday.

    • Hey, Becky, I know these houses are not for everyone’s taste. I try to be mindful of that with what I say and it’s not always my taste either.

      • Becky in 'Bama says:

        Rhoda: I meant it more tongue-in-cheek (and I admit I was a bit harsh in my comments.) Love you and your blog – and appreciate that you have to appease the masses.

  2. So much of this reminds me of the decor from the late 70’s that only a few years after it was “in”, we were ridiculed for it relentlessly by the same designers that shoved it down our throats to begin with! No thanks. Never again!
    But thanks for a great post, Rhoda! I always love to see these showhouses.

  3. I prefer the “before” house.

  4. Not fond of this “new” decor for such a lovely, classic home, but I’m really glad to see the photos, Rhonda. Part of developing my own sense of decor and style is seeing lots of examples–those I like, and those I don’t like. Thank you for the tour!

  5. I think there are so many great ideas to be found. Love the mix of metals, gold, silver, black. I have a white fence covered in trumpet vines in summer, never thought to decorate it for winter with a garland and spotlight, will really stand out.

  6. Rhoda, thanks so much for sharing this two-part show house tour. I love showhouses and can appreciate design even if it is not my taste. Have a great weekend!

    Always love Christmas home tours, even if they’re not particularly my taste. There’s always at least one thing you can go “hey, that’s a good idea” about. Thinking back, I really liked it when you showed Marc’s house done up for Christmas. He always “wows” me with his decor. Would love to see his home every Christmas!

    Love the free standing tub and the screen in the master bath. Moving those screens would make the space feel like a tree house. Love peeking into beautiful houses.
