Christmas Decor Ideas from a Chattanooga Home

Christmas decor ideas from a Chattanooga Home

Resting atop the eastern face of Lookout Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tennessee, this Beaux-Arts-style home becomes a wonderland of snowy hues and Christmas decor ideas.

The tree in Lisa and Scott Maclellan’s living room sparkles brightly. Some of Lisa’s favorite ornaments came from The Christmas Cottage, in New York City. Topped by cascading ribbons, the tree rests atop a handmade rug.

  1. The magazine says to come here to the website “to see more of this spectacular home” yet there are far fewer and no different pictures here. Why can you not post some pictures of the exterior of the house so readers can get an idea of how grand it truly is?

  2. I agree with Jack’s comments. The home is exquisite with much to offer, and I want to see the exterior, the staircase, the balustrade, columns, and more rooms. That’s what I was hoping to find on website, but was very disappointed to see only a repeat of the magazine photos. Don’t promise and then not deliver!
