Hollingsworth home 1 of 3 stops on Spring Pilgrimage home tour

Sena Hollingsworth blends decorating techniques with family fun.
“My favorite things are greens, browns and pottery,” said the owner of one of three City View Estates homes that will be open Sunday afternoon for the Spring Pilgrimage Tour of Homes, a fundraiser of the Decatur Women’s Chamber of Commerce.
“I pretty much stay with neutral tones, because we move about every two years,” she said. Then she gets to decorate another, because her husband, Kent Hollingsworth of KH Construction Inc. and Mountain Cove Development, is a builder.
She uses brown leather upholstered chairs with the glass-topped breakfast table and matching bar stools at a kitchen counter, along with an eclectic array of pottery plus rattan and wood trays accented with green apples and plants.
The Hollingsworth home is one of three houses on the Tour of Homes on Sunday in City View Estates.
Hollingsworth’s favorite rooms are the family room, with more pottery in built-in bookcases flanking the fireplace, and the cozy study/office off the foyer. The ceilings reach 18 feet in the foyer, family and dining rooms.
The bedroom areas for their daughters, however, aren’t done in earth tones or neutral colors.
Hollingsworth helped 7-year-old Hilton choose iridescent metallic-look comforter, curtains and pillows, with a disco ball hanging from the ceiling and colored CDs on the walls in her upstairs hideaway. Hilton’s closet is large enough for a clubhouse, with computer and bookshelves, as well as clothes and play area.
Downstairs, off the kitchen, 10-year-old Madison claimed a bedroom, sitting room and bath many girls would love to have. Her mom helped her choose comforter, curtains and other decorations in bright pink, purple and turquoise.
