There is No Place Like Home for the Holidays Part 2

Oh! There's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze,
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home!

It is time to continue on our tour of the Holiday House
with the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyle Magazine.
You can go back and see
We had stopped for a break in the sitting area of
the Master Bedroom. 

Here is another shot of the Master Bathroom.

And what lady of the house wouldn't love to have 
this closet!

Before we head upstairs, we want to be sure 
and see the downstairs powder room.

I love the Powder room wallpaper and how 
the designer used the sconces on the paper.

Everyone around me had wonderful comments
about the carpet that was used on the 
stairway runner! 

What young lady wouldn't love having this
parrot green, hot pink and turquoise bedroom?
This older gal would love it!

I am all gaga over this wallpaper! 
What a fun area! 

Young or old who wouldn't love this children'a
loft sleeping/play area! 

This children's play area was the one room I 
just  could not fall in love with. It may have
just been me, but the patterns and proportions
were just to much! I can see some hyper children!

This was a wonderful gallery area. I love
a great grouping of different art styles! 

After all the fun colors and patterns, this
bedroom offered a wonderful calm retreat.

A lovely guest bath with a mix of 
old and new.

New floor and old rug!

Ralph Lauren would feel right at home here
in this sitting area. 

A client asked me the other day if her
covered drapery pole was dated. I can truthfully say
that I saw them in the most recent show house! 

What young man wouldn't feel at home here? 
Loved all the subtle Christmas decorations
in the rooms. 

Nice masculine feel to this bath.

I would love to have this upstairs, craft and 
laundry room. What a great place to work! 

This is the ladies retreat at the top of the back stairs. 
Do you think the 15,000 square feet might have
something to do with all of the sitting areas?

I know it was December, but the pool area was very sparse and
was not my favorite outdoor area. 
You can see the outdoor porch where I would
spend my outside time in Part 1 HERE

That concludes our Home for the Holidays Tour.

I hope each and everyone of you have a very 
Merry Christmas and that you have 
special times to share the meaning
of Christmas with your family and friends.

*I am trying to use larger pictures for this blog post. I hope they don't over power, but
there were a lot of details I didn't want you to miss.

There is no place like Home for the Holidays!

Oh! There's no place like home for the holidays,
'Cause no matter how far away you roam,
When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze,
For the holidays you can't beat home sweet home!

And roam we did through all 15,000 square feet of
The home designed by architects 
William Harrison, Franky Heerey and Steve Markay,
 was built by Sheehan Built Homes,
 to resemble Scotland’s Stonefield Castle. 

Join me now and come have a look inside. Is this not 
a beautiful front entrance?! Step into the foyer!

I have a lot of pictures to show you, 
so be patient, they may take awhile 
to load. But it will definitely be worth it! 

I loved this dining room. The pink chair seats are a bit
shocking, but they are growing on me! 

Come into the living room. A perfect place to sit and
listen to someone tickle the ivories and sing
Christmas Carols. 
It is the place where the party animals hang out!

Close by is the kitchen. It is quite dramatic with 
the black cabinets. 
Perfect for entertaining.

Right off the kitchen is the outdoor porch. It has a 
fireplace, sitting area and dining area. Ideal for our
Southern nights!

Coming out of the kitchen is the family room. 
Teal grasscloth on the walls with faux malachite trim, made 
me feel like I had stepped back to the 90's. Still a very pretty room.

I might even learn to love doing
laundry, in a room like this one! 

Also on the lower level is the man's study. 
After you pass through the study, you 
enter the Master Suite. 

I must say that this was my favorite area 
of the Holiday House.

This was the drapery fabric in the  master bedroom.
This seemed to be a hit with all of the bloggers. 
Several included the close up picture in their posts.

Such a beautiful master bath! 

There is still a lot more of this house to see. 
So this master bedroom sitting area looks 
like a good place to stop and have a break. 

We will continue our tour in Part 2!
