Last weekend was one of the best of my life. Nearly 1,300 people attended the Historic Homes for the Holidays tour, and the vibe was festive, positive, warm, and friendly! I couldn’t help but feel so much love for those who came.
Today I want to share a few of my favorite views from some of the tour homes, and I’ll post more tomorrow. The homeowners worked hard to make their homes beautiful, and I don’t think anyone on the tour was disappointed.
Built-ins in a 1938 house lined with wrapping paper for Christmas.
The homeowner had her children’s photos taken at age three; the studio then painted on top of the photos to create these beautiful portraits.
The scale of this fireplace is stunning.
A grand staircase with live garland and wallpaper—swoon!
Love this niche in the upstairs hallway.
An original—and fabulous—lavender bath. Even the basket-weave tile is lavender.
Arguably my favorite room in the entire tour. That fireplace is almost other-worldly.
Playhouse INSIDE the house—love this idea!
Stay tuned this week for more photos AND for the total amount of money we raised for Promise Ridge. Let’s just say I could not be happier with the result! •
