Holiday Home 2016 :: House of Valentina We are just beginning to settle into our new home (a completely surreal experience to say the least!) but I couldn't help but sneak away to the Holiday Home 2016 presented by Atlanta Homes and Lifestyle.  The home is packed with holiday decor inspiration and is absolute proof that you can sell a home decorated for the holidays... In fact, it may make it easier.  All that coziness just adds to the charm factor.  Who doesn't want to come home for the holidays, right?  Even if you aren't styling your home to sell, you can grab some great ideas for your own home to make it extra special at the holidays.  Here are 42 of my favorite moments:

1. Exterior: Go over the windows!
