Happy Friday! I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We sure did and enjoyed both of our family time, with lots of good food and fellowship. Families are the best, aren’t they? We both are so thankful for our families, a lot to be grateful for.
Today, I’m sharing the Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles magazine Home for the Holiday’s showhouse tour. I’m always invited to the preview and so enjoy getting a first peek into the home before it opens to the public. You’re invited if you live in the area to tour the home in person. It’s open until December 9th, so be sure and get by there if you can. I really loved this one. Some showhouses are beautiful and a little over the top. This one was definitely more Traditional in style with color and beauty everywhere. I loved it so much! So many spaces spoke to me and I think you’ll enjoy this one too.
The proceeds for this event go to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta this year.
Here’s a little about the showhouse this year. This is the 10th annual Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse and Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles is partnering with Harrison Design, Steve McGlamery in partnership with Blackstone Custom Homes and the city’s top design talents for this beloved seasonal event.
This year’s showhouse is a new, 8,232 s.f. Buckhead estate on 1.5 acres. Inspired by the site, the English country abode features a locally sourced limestone and brick exterior and open spaces filled with daylight. It has 5 bedrooms and multiple bathrooms.
Check out the schedule on the link above to order tickets and find the days and times it’s open. I really think you’ll enjoy this tour, I sure did! I’m going to share the designers name of each space and the paint colors, since they gave us that info too.
It was a rainy day when I went, so didn’t get a lot of photos outside, but you can see a few of the grounds and how pretty it all is.
The designers didn’t all coordinate their spaces, but I think you’ll see how well it all coordinated together. There were touches of pink all around and i just loved this display in the front of the house with all the fresh greens and pinks.
Foyer, Dining Niche, Library Niche, and Main Level Stair Hall:
Randy Korando & Dan Belman, Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts
This tree was inside the foyer before going upstairs and it was a show stopper too. These pics don’t really do it justice, but it was a glowing beauty in pink.
Those balls looked like big bubbles ready to pop.
I tried to take pics of all the fresh greens on the stairway. Aren’t they gorgeous?!

This is my friend, Julie’s space, with her partner Michele. Love what they did in here.
Those are hand painted walls.
Using this fabric as the inspiration, the artist added this beautiful hand painted wall.
I just love their space!

So I really loved this bedroom, a total nod to Traditional style. This designer wasn’t there while we were touring, but another designer said he was really inspired by Cape Cod and New England and I can definitely see that since I just visited there.
I knew you all would love this Traditional bedroom, so pretty.
Loved those cafe curtains.

That’s the tour this year of the Home for the Holidays house. Hope you enjoyed this one as much as I did. I just loved the spaces and thought they were all livable beautiful spaces and they all flowed so well together even though it was all different designers doing each space.
If you have any questions about paint colors, let me know and I can try to answer. I do have a paint swatch that they gave us of all the rooms as well as the wallpaper.
