I’m excited to share a brand new Feature Friday with you today and many of you who have been following me for years will remember Marc Jones, who is my sister’s former neighbor. I photographed his house twice years ago and you can see that house in these posts. I think my photography is even better now than it was then and I’m using my iPhone 11 Pro Max for most of my photos now:
Part 1 (2011)
Part 3 The fabulous finished basement
Since then, Marc went through a stressful divorce and sold that house and moved into a new smaller house in the last couple years. I was so happy to see him get settled in a new place that suits him just perfectly. Marc is a wonderful designer, very talented with layering new and old and is a master at using vintage pieces and mixing patterns. His home is just beautiful and I know you’ll enjoy seeing all the details he adds for Christmas. Marc has quite the collection of Christmas decor and every inch of his house is festive for the Holiday season. Buckle up for a fun and festive ride. I’ll share Part 1 today and then I’ll be back next week for Part 2. I’ll actually post it on Thursday next week since Friday is Christmas.
Known as The Consignor’s Designer, you can find Marc on Facebook, so check out his page and he also styles Southern Comforts Consignment stores, there are 3 in the Atlanta area.
Marc’s new house is really cute and I loved the dark gray paint, white trim and yellow door.
Marc’s exterior is very festive too with the carolers and garland on the posts.
Here’s Marc, a talented designer. Enjoy the tour and leave him lots of comments, I know he’ll be reading them all. I’ll not try to chat throughout the tour. He has so many interesting things to see.
You will recognize many pieces from his former home and how he’s used them here.
I hope you enjoyed Part 1 of Marc’s house as much as I enjoyed taking pics. It’s an outstanding display of Christmas cheer.
Don’t miss Part 2, sharing the upstairs bedrooms and screened porch in the backyard.

Oh how I love the combination of the fine case goods and dressed up traditional pieces mixed with a bit of Southern farmhouse. Kind of like a dress with a stiff white petticoat worn with a pair of red Keds – refined but sassy! Beautiful!
Beautiful. The tree with the bubble lights brings back memories of my childhood.

A wows! It’s very beautiful and you can tell he loves it! Merry Christmas Marc! Well done!
What a beautiful house! The mercury glass trees with the frosted wreath in the Foyer is just breathtaking!
Absolutely stunning but so warm and inviting. Thank you for sharing with us.
Absolutely stunning as Pam said! I love everything about it, antiques and vintage thrown in with Farmhouse and it all goes together beautifully! Thanks for sharing such a gorgeous home and I look forward to seeing more! Merry Christmas!

I was so excited that you did another tour of his house. I go back every Christmas and look at his house. There is so much to love. The new house is amazing. I love the black and white. The wool scarves on the hat rack caught my eye. Love his kitchen. Bubble lights, I love bubble lights. It’s all so wonderful. Talented man.
Thank you, can’t wait for the next installment.
Beautiful home!! Looking forward to next week! Thank you Marc for sharing your home.
Marc’s house is so beautiful!

Your home is beautiful , I’d love to have a cup of tea and just be able to slowly wonder through with Marc giving life to the stories of his amazing collection.
Best. Christmas. Home. Ever.
The black & white Buffalo check accents are to die for.
Bravo, Marc. 🖤🤍🖤

So beautiful and inspiring!
I loved every single thing about his beautiful home! I love , that he likes layers. I love layering with lots of stuff without it looking cluttered. I think it looks more cozy and like people really live in their home. His home to me is perfection! What a great designer he is! Thank you for the tour!
It is all so beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing. Great inspiration

It’s a Christmas wonderland! It must have taken a great deal of time to put it together. Marc decorated the season beautifully, and you captured it beautifully, Rhoda.
Stunning is the word! The faux stacked stone ottoman caught my eye as did the cardinal shepherd’s hook. And the mercury glass!!! My brain is swimming with all the wonder of the season. Marc, you are a master at your craft. Thank you for the tour, Marc and Rhoda.
Pam Clark says
Everything is exquisite! Thanks to you both for sharing. And I’ll echo others, that mercury tree display with the flocked wreath is the absolute best!

I loved the use of colors thru out the decorating of this gorgeous home! Made me want to just walk in and join in the festivities that will be happening on Christmas!!! Thank you for sharing!
Lisa Robin Brock says
Marc is such a great decorator. I go back every year before I start to decorate for Christmas and look at the blog post of his former home to inspire me! I always get some great ideas, it makes my home Extra! I look forward to the next post of Marc’s home. I have followed him on Facebook since your first post of his home! Thank you for the virtual introduction!

WOWZA!! There are no words…but I now have visible proof that I do NOT have way too much “Christmas crap,” as my daughter so graciously tells me every year!
