Home for the is the little things!

I get so excited when the Christmas magazines start to arrive. I ❤
looking at all the gorgeous Christmas decorating ideas. Even more
exciting is seeing the Atlanta Christmas Showhouse. It is one of 
my favorite holiday treats! 

This years Showhouse, sponsored by the The Atlanta Home and Lifestyle magazine,
was loaded with great interior design and holiday decor. Visitors use to not be able
to take photographs, but with all of the media coverage and bloggers attending 
the preview party, great photos are easy to find. 

I am going to share with you some of the pictures I captured with my phone.
This is the last weekend that the house will be open to the public. If you like
what I am sharing, it may make you want to visit this Holiday Home for 
yourself! But if it is not your taste or workable in your schedule, at the end
of the post, I will share links of the tour from two very talented, bloggers. 
They are lot better photographers than I am! Their pictures are great and 
will show you the entire house! 

Beautiful gift wrapped packages were tucked in many of
the rooms.

This pine cone wreath is on the family den doors that
lead out to the loggia.

Magnolias were used in the family den on the bookshelves and game table. 
The designers used just the right amount of holiday trimmings, so the rooms
were festive, but not overdone! 

I really like this idea in the guest powder room. They used a glass and brass
snack table. They were popular a number of years back to slide between 
sectional seating. This made an excellent accent table for a narrow 
powder room. 
This is another shot of the same powder room. 
Another interesting detail in this room was the sink. 
Here is a closeup so you can see how it works! 

This was a lighted display area at the end of a hallway intersection. 
It is a great place to display art work and holiday accessories. It is
a great focal point for an otherwise boring hall area.

I loved this fabric and trim. So many people were asking about it! 

This pattern was another fabric that was getting raves. It was used for
pillows in a pair of chairs. If you like this look in the living room, be sure
and look at the links at the end.

I loved the stone they used on the counter tops. It has a green veining 
that runs through it. The kitchen designer did a great mix
of different metals in the kitchen! They blend so beautifully you hardly 
register it at first that their is brass, copper and nickle all present!

This is the flooring in the back entrance. Love the cross shaped stones and
the funky, black chair and wallpaper!

This light in the mudroom/laundry room gives off some
interesting light shadows.

Every nook and cranny was used in the upstairs office! 

Interesting mobile tucked into a corner of the bedroom. That is a 
3D pattern on the walls behind the chair.

There is so much more to see in this fabulous house.  I am sharing two 
bloggers' blog post. 
Jennifer Schoenberger, at Vreeland Road,

Rhoda, at Southern Hospitality, who did her post in two parts.

I hope you each enjoy this Holiday House as much as I did!
