Atlanta Home for the Holidays Showhouse

The Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Home for the Holidays Showhouse is an Atlanta tradition. Having just packed up my space at the Magnolia Designer Showhouse I was ready to stroll another beautiful home designed by yet another group of talented people.

Swoon over these spaces just a little and then take a friend and go visit this lovely home.

I’m crazy busy with countdown to Christmas break so today I’m doing a photo share and you can take a look at the designers here.

I LOVE that this is another approachable showhouse we can relate to and take ideas from. Notice the details – that’s what makes a room special.

Some days are just nuts. Yesterday I went to the gym for the first time in a long time. I grocery shopped, visited school, had a morning visit of inspiration and sharing with another business woman, picked up the kids, helped with homework, fixed dinner, washed laundry (hubby folded), ran to tile stores, and worked until 8pm. My days are always a bit crazy but at the end of the day I’m with my family and everyone is happy, healthy, and together.

We need to add time in our day for ourselves so that we handle crazy days the best we can- for me it’s got to be exercise with no excuses!

Stay tuned for after photos of a beautiful kitchen and bath reno and progress on a large farmhouse inspired transformation (this is going to be good good good.)

I’d love to help you with your decorating and design needs. Email me at

Happy Holidays! Peace.

Magnolia Designer Show House

The Magnolia Designer Show House came to an end and we’ve moved on out. I thought I’d post a final share for those of you that missed out!

I’m so grateful for the opportunity and appreciate my friend Betsy Riley (editor-in-chief Atlanta Magazine’s HOME), my new friend Beverly Baribault (Beverly Baribault Design Group) , and the team at Atlanta Magazine.

See the designers and their spaces in this issue-on stands now.


Take a moment and watch the video and tour house photos, here.

Here’s a last look at the sitting room I designed. (Marc Mauldin Photography). Casual, elegant and timeless.

Finally, I love my husband and my two boys. I’ve been busy and they’ve been supportive, understanding, and give me hugs at the end of every day.

Time for the next adventure. I’d love to help you love your home. Email
