Marc’s Christmas Home Tour: Part 1

You may remember that I recently featured my sister’s neighbor, Marc, with his front porch all decorated for Fall. Marc is a decorator extraordinaire and works out of Encore Fine Furnishings in Roswell.  Since you all loved his porch so much, wait until you get a gander at the inside of their house.  Marc has decked the halls to the max!  Prepare to be wowed!

Marcs house

Marc and my sis live in a nice neighborhood in Northeast Cobb County here in Marietta.


Marc decorates for every season and I always admire the front of their house every time I drive by.


The front porch greets guests and welcomes visitors for the Holidays.


Look how beautiful this wreath is!


It is gorgeous!  Not sure if Marc made it, but it is really stunning.


Step inside the spacious foyer and the living room is to the right.  Beautiful, traditional, but not at all stuffy.


With a grand piano, there are many touches of Christmas in this room too.


Like this pretty tree on a stand in the living room.


To the left is the dining room, all neutral and done in silvers, mercury glass and white.  It is so gorgeous!


It’s hard to get the whole scope of decorating with whites and silvers, but it just sparkles and shines.


Table centerpiece.


From another angle.  See how pretty it all is?


A wreath in the window and mercury glass balls on top of candlesticks complete this side table.


It was a treat to walk through and see it all.


The sideboard holds bottle brush trees and candles in snow. Lovely!


In the foyer itself, Marc placed an outdoor statue that is perfect for the season, surrounded by red poinsettias.


Looking to the staircase and into the greatroom is the huge tree.  Magnificent!  It’s all Christopher Radko ornaments.


How beautiful is this?


The fireplace and mantel are all aglow too.


Great room looking towards kitchen.


Side wall is equally pretty and that pass through door goes back to the dining room.


The kitchen has been updated and is purely beautiful too.


Breakfast table and island.


Breakfast table centerpiece.


Love this 3 tiered stand on the island all filled up with Christmas cheer.


This is probably my favorite piece in his house, love it!


The kitchen is all festive and glowy too with so many special little touches.


Beautiful kitchen.


See all the Santas Marc has displayed?


Going out to the sunroom is a teacart with pretties on it.


Look at this HUGE Ball canning jar.  Inside is a battery candle which is so happy and pretty. Marc said he found this at the hardware store in Sylva, NC.  It is the biggest Ball canning jar I’ve ever seen. It just so happens I’m going back to the Cottage next month and we might have to take a trip back to nearby Sylva.


Sideboard off the kitchen has more Christmas cheer.


Love this happy little red and white tree.


Looking back towards the greatroom.


Above on the landing upstairs looking down at the gigantic beautiful tree.


Right off the kitchen is their beautiful sunroom, all aglow in yellow paint.


It is a happy, yet calming space.  Love the nativity.


This room has some great features and a pretty fruit tree.


With brick floors, what character it has.  That’s one of the doggies in the house.


Pretty sparkly balls and a lantern sit on the coffee table.


Side chair and tables.

That completes the downstairs portion of Marc’s house.  We will visit upstairs in the master suite, as well as the fully furnished basement.  It’s all eye candy too!  Be sure and come back Thursday for Part 2 and 3!
