The 14th Atlanta Holiday Home Designer Showhouse (benefitting Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta) is open for tours Nov. 17 through December 11th, and you should definitely go if you can! Let’s explore inspiring designs inside and save ideas for our own Christmas decorating schemes.

Atlanta Holiday Home 2022 & 2021
This year’s Home for the Holidays Designer Showhouse is a new contemporary English estate in Buckhead. The 14th annual holiday home is situated on one acre with a finished basement and is the latest collaboration between Harrison Design and KBD Development & Construction.
The home’s free-flowing design casts a romantic air and lets in light through expected and unexpected choices by the architect and builder.
Ready to peek at what designers have done inside?
Set Up a Bar or Beverage Station
This moment (that wallcovering!) is a reminder that for the holidays, a console, sideboard or even a desk can become a bar, coffee bar or drinks station. A basket or tray to corral bottles, a few glasses, and a pretty strand of garland…boom.
Instead of Holiday Red, Add a Merry Magenta
Pops of this pleasing purple hue in a dining area prove it’s okay to diverge from traditional color schemes.
More of the color shows up in another moment within the holiday home.

Silver & Gold Tabletop Christmas Tree
If you’re fortunate enough to have a two-story entry, how about placing a tree on a tabletop?

Understated Kitchen With Natural Touches
While there is NO duplicating this luxurious and sophisticated kitchen, notice how the holiday decorating is kept on the simple side.
Hang a wreath in the window, a pedestal with paperwhites on the island, and…
a low simple arrangement on the dining table that won’t interfere with eye contact.
Jewel Tones & Whimsy
Creating a lighthearted mood can start with the color story. Have a happy pattern that can inspire your whole look?
Don’t you love the plum accents as sweet relief from the usual crimson?
If the weather is mild during the holidays, what a treat to bring a tree with pretty lights on the porch!
Subtle Nutcracker Nods & Sweet Pink Checks
Why not echo the existing colors in a room for a tonal holiday scheme? Note the pink nutcracker and sweet pink giftwrapped presents in the buggy.
What a darling space with timeless style to thrill for years to come. And the tree!
Need any further convincing that the right pinks for Christmas can be anything but cloying or too kitschy?
Green & Cool Blues on a Holiday Table
I’m not missing red in this coastal Christmas scheme!
It need not be all about pines and firs, and even pinecones count as references.
I may be biased, but a tree mural or tree wallpaper is the perfect backdrop during the holidays when you want heaven and nature to sing inside…did you see mine here?
Elegant Holiday Accents in a Bedroom & Bath
Such understated sophisticated simplicity achieved in a bedroom on the main floor.
And the bath is breathtaking!
