How is it possible the Christmas is just 25 days away? With the temperatures still being in the 70s in Charlotte, I am having a hard time getting motivated to put up the tree. As I mentioned in my last post, (click HERE to read Part One) going to a holiday showhouse helps me to get in the spirit. I am always preaching to my clients that details make the design. It shows that extra dose of imagination and love has been devoted to taking a piece of furniture, lampshade or window treatment from ordinary to extraordinary. I was BLOWN AWAY by the impeccable attention to detail that every designer mastered in their rooms at the Home for the Holidays Showhouse. From the selection of treats left for Santa and brilliantly curated art to the unique floral arrangements and interesting holiday color schemes, every detail was beautifully thought out and executed. Congratulations to all of the designers that pulled off this amazing feat!
Nothing gets me into the Christmas decorating spirit more than visiting a Holiday Showhouse. Seeing how interior designers incorporate brilliant colors including chartreuse, aubergine, midnight blue, and fuchsia into stunning holiday interiors gets my creative juices flowing for how I want to deck my own halls at home. Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles magazine recently opened its 9th annual Home for the Holidays Showhouse benefiting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta.

Nestled on a two acre private wooded hillside, the new home evokes a stately English country home. The 5-bedroom, 8,800-square foot Showhouse features custom-made brick and locally sourced and aged granite for the exterior and integrates structured, classical design with more modern, casual living space. Twenty of Atlanta’s top interior designers have transformed the estate designed by Atlanta architecture firm Harrison Design and built by Sheehan Built Homes.
