The Atlanta Holiday Home: Number One on Your Christmas List

My idea of the perfect start to the holiday season is an absolute overload of all things festive around me. While I'm at home, I prefer to have Hallmark movies running constantly with a cup of cider wassail in my hand. While out, I expect to see main streets decorated for Christmas and holiday music on the radio. And just to make sure my holiday cup runneth over, of course I love to attend as many holiday home events as possible.

This year, the home that had me in the spirit was the Atlanta Holiday Home, an annual event brought to us by Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles Magazine. The house is a newly constructed and decorated home, where Atlanta's finest designers are invited exclusively to decorate specific rooms. I had the opportunity to serve as a volunteer for the event during opening week and let me tell you, the home does not disappoint. 

7500 square feet of a gorgeous floor plan with impeccably designed architectural details. The showhouse is located on Habersham Road in Atlanta. It was designed by Harrison Design Associates and constructed by Sheehan Built homes. And for a mere 3.5 million, the home can be all yours. If you haven't yet, purchase your Atlanta Holiday Home tickets online, and use these as your preview of what you'll be seeing in person. 

Walton County Homes for Sale - Thanksgiving Edition

In celebration of the holiday week, I wanted to share with you the homes for sale in Walton County that are not only adorable, but would also make the perfect setting for a Thanksgiving soiree! 

What I love about the homes in Walton County is that there is so much to choose from at reasonable prices. From the picture perfect neighborhoods to the grand estates, homes in Walton County offer an easy commute to major highways and interstates, while staying tucked away into a charming small town setting. 

And while we're on the subject, here's a secret about selling your home during the holidays. 

Some may say that the holiday season is the worse for real estate.. but I actually completely disagree. While many choose to wait to sell their home until the spring, there are still plenty of buyers on the hunt for their perfect home throughout November and December. And the best part about selling during the holidays... less competition! 

Though counterintuitive, selling your home during November and December may be the secret to selling quickly and at a great price. After all, there are less homes for buyers to choose from and often, buyers will simply wait until after the holidays to close. 

So, without further adieu, here are some of {in my opinion} the most perfect homes available in Walton County. And remember, simply contact me if you'd like to get a closer look.

Can a Bathroom Become a Living Space?

So I'm sure when you walk into a new home, the first thought rushing into your mind is not "Oh I just cannot wait to see the bathrooms!" But you might be surprised at what kind of features bathrooms are offering these days. And no, I'm not talking about throwing a TV on a wall so that you never have to leave the bathtub. I'm talking about the way you can dress up the bathroom once you call the space your own.

Inspired by a home I recently showed to a client, take a scroll through these incredible bathrooms that offer not only a space to take care of business, but also a space to chat, pamper, play dress up, whatever! And all with the use of cleverly casual furniture and design.
