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 beautiful front exterior of Atlanta Holiday Home 2022.
914 Buckingham Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30327 is modeled after the style of English architect C.F.A. (Charles Francis Annesley) Voysey from the late 1890s and early 1900s with details such as oversized arches, generous gables and swooping pitches.

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.

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.

Subtle Nutcracker Nods & Sweet Pink Checks

Tree References

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?
