Home for the Holidays: Thinking COLD When It’s 90 Degrees Outside!

CPI-white-pumpkin-This weather inspires me!

Fall has arrived; and not far behind is the holidays.  There, I said it.  It’s not Halloween yet, and we’re already thinking about the holidays!  Really, as a designer, there is a LOT to think about ahead of time for the holiday season.

As a client, if you are having company for Thanksgiving, you have already missed the deadline for custom orders for furniture.  And, the deadline to receive custom orders for Christmas is in a few weeks…before Halloween.


CPI Christmas-Halloween joke


For Cynthia Porche Interiors retail side, holiday decor orders were placed in July.  Now we know the real meaning behind Christmas in July!  We just received a pallet of holiday decor…today!  Starting the holidays early is part what we do, and we love it!




But, this year is different.  We have a reason to love it even more!  We are BEYOND excited to be participating in the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS Designer Showhouse.  The amazing talent and creativity in this endeavor, and all the work behind the scenes is nothing short of miraculous…especially because it was still under construction on our walk-through!

My team and I had a pow wow last week about the inspiration and plans for our holiday decor in our space.  We were sweating…not because we don’t know what to do, but because it was still 90 degrees outside last week… and, because we were lunching outdoors!  It didn’t take long for us to move inside.  Maybe the air conditioned restaurant would help us channel our inner winter.

Inspiration came, as it always does, and now we are even more excited about the Show House, the beautiful spaces that will come to life, meeting the patrons that will come through, and especially for CHILDREN’S HEALTHCARE OF ATLANTA, who is the beneficiary of this year’s Show House proceeds.

We are SO blessed to have CHOA right here in our back yard in Atlanta.  I’m sure anyone with kids has experienced the amazing staff and services offered by CHOA.  So, do it now.  Get your tickets and join us at the Atlanta Homes & Lifestyles HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS Designer Showhouse.  We’ll see you there!
