Yes, we are in the south! Grand Oaks, a 1900’s Greek Revival mansion. is a wedding and special occasion venue. This Christmas guests were delighted with 21 themed trees, and over 15,000 decorations! Everyone needs a Christmas tree on top of their roof, don’t you think!???

Another showstopper at Christmas is the Victorian Mansion, Rose Lawn. Located in Cartersville, Georgia and now a museum open to the public, Rose Lawn is host to several art festivals each year and is currently used as a special event venue.  The home and grounds are simply spectacular and include a carriage and school house.

Madison, Georgia is filled with beautiful historic homes, but this new farmhouse caught our eye with its’ simple facade.  The wood doors, front porch, hanging lantern and white siding all add up to a good dose of farmhouse charm.

High on our list of inspiring homes is this charming ivy clad cottage style located north of Atlanta. This image was currently featured on Southern Living Magazine’s Instagram and had many hearts thumping over its’ enchanting cottage style design.

 Sitting proudly on Canton Street in Roswell, Georgia is Naylor Hall. This 1840 antebellum  home has a bit of history in that in once housed confederate uniforms. In the 1980’s a ballroom was added and the home is now  a special events facility.  Check out the Naylor Hall website for a glimpse of weddings and events held at this historic home.

Oh my … the inspiring homes we saw this fall! Look at how the autumn colors enhance this traditional home. We love the classic white facade with black shutters – and how welcoming the walkway is leading up to that bright red door.
