If you have been reading my blog for any length of time then you know I love a good showhouse!

The other day I visited the Atlanta Holiday Home and was "wowed" at every corner.

These 20 designers managed to kick some "design butt" and I was impressed!

Chris Holt, John Oetgen, Barbara Westbrook, Bob Brown, Lindsay Coral Harper, Carol Weaks, Jessica Bradley, Heather Hogan Roberts, Kerry Howard, Barbara Marshall Howard, Mallory Mathison Glen, Tish Mills, Melanie Millner, Judith Bentley, Karen Hayes Ferguson, James Wheeler, Joel Kelly, Dan Belman, Steve Mckenzie.

This years 15,000 square ft home, Millwood Manor, is incredibly beautiful resembling Scotland's Stonefield Castle.  Built by Sheehan and designed by architect Harrison Designs.

Everybody brought their A game.

The Dining Room....

Music Room

These curtains are everything.

Crushing on these Circa Lighting fixtures...... so pretty in the hallway and the kitchen below.  Of course just to rub it in....more iron windows.

Even though the cabinets are black, there is plenty of light with that large metal window and the  antique mirror!

 Nice dining area off the kitchen.....a great space to hang out!  Gah.

Right into the family room that had some gorgeous color.....

Beautiful teal grasscloth on the walls.

Headed on to a covered porch...

Back hall

I love this flat roman shade with the pom poms....what about you?  

So many traditional colors and features in this home.....and I think it's here for a while.  Just saying.  

More on Friday.

Geez...this time of year drives me crazy.  Deadlines....parties....did I mention deadlines?

I don't even have a wreath on my door yet.  Such a slacker.



Pin It!

I need that covered porch! Primate does not agree. How 'bout the glass doored buffet and that incredible lamp perched atop? Do you know their credentials? Thanks for always making me laugh!

BEAUTIFUL! I love the light in that house. The black kitchen and brass counters are gorgeous as are so many of the hallways and rooms. Love the textiles and great ideas. Thanks for bringing all that to me! xo Nancy
