Today's Home: North Augusta Christmas Tour of Homes

  • Follow Home

Opening her home at Christmas to benefit a charity is not new for Kim Rogers. Her home, featured on this year’s North Augusta Christmas Tour of Homes, is quite different from the one she had on her last tour, which is sponsored by Beta Sigma Phi Sorority.

The holiday decorations of Kim Roger's North Augusta home overlooking the Savannah River will be featured décor on this year's Beta Sigma Phi Sorority's North Augusta Christmas Tour of Homes.

“The house we had in West Lake was a banker-style. It had a formal living room and a formal dining room,” she said.

The home lent itself to traditional décor with lots of red and green. Those colors and style of Christmas trappings don’t fit with her river-view home.

Kim and her husband, Steve, have lived in the 5,500-square-foot home for about two years. Although it’s new, the home has a rustic “lodge” feel to it and more masculine décor, she said.

“I grew up in the country, and I really wanted to feel what I had growing up,” she said.

The master bedroom has wooden panels and a paint finish reminiscent of driftwood. The walls of her college-age son’s room are painted to remind her of Spanish moss.

Living in a natural setting overlooking the Savannah River, the couple see a lot of wildlife such as deer, eagles, hawks and egrets. The wildlife is incorporated into the Christmas trimmings. There are several trees in the home including in the great room, on an upstairs landing and in her son’s bedroom.

Instead of stars or angels as tree-toppers, there are owls peeking from the highest point of the tree.
