I hope you are enjoying Marc’s tour in his beautiful home. If you missed Part 1 and Part 2, check those out too. Now, we’ll head down to the finished basement, which is all aglow with Christmas cheer. Marc loves Christmas and sprinkles it all through their home. It’s fun and happy and exciting to see.
At the bottom of the stairs, this pretty vignette greets guests.
Lovely bird and nest.
With a wintry flocked tree under glass.
Looking into the downstairs family room, with a white flocked blue and white tree.
This is a cozy room to hang out in.
Sectional sofa and big screen TV.
One of the dogs is resting on the chair.
Festive and sparkly mantel.
A guestroom is downstairs also with pretty antique twin beds.
Along with a Santa and tree on the dresser.
And a bottlebrush wreath on an old window above one bed.
Here’s a closer look at the pretty blue and white tree.
It’s gorgeous and icy blue.
A pretty treatment on the walls down here, this space has a full kitchen and dining space. It’s more of an apartment than just a finished basement.
Pretty table and chairs.
Happy tree in the corner.
Marc said these Santa mugs are from childhood. So cute!
Full size kitchen with black cabinets and white island is gorgeous.
Marc has it all decorated for the season too.
Lots of collections hang out down here, like these snowmen.
Happy, jolly Santas.
And carolers are singing on a table down here.
Snowman and pretty tree.
Even the office space gets some Christmas cheer.
Bathroom side table.
Love this little tree.
And these shelves are bedecked with pretties too.
A corner cabinet in the bathroom downstairs gets a wintry snow village display. Check out the brick floors here.
And that completes the tour of the suite in the basement. This is one of the nicest finished basements I have ever seen. It doesn’t have a closed in feeling at all, it’s all bright and cheery.
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing Marc’s home. If you get into Encore Fine Furnishings in Roswell, look Marc up. I know he would love to meet you.
Thanks, Marc, for letting me show off your Christmas house!
I’ll be back tomorrow with more from my friend, Ruby’s festive home for the holidays.
I know it’s late, and I’m probably losing my mind, but I can’t get the link to work to Part 2, and when I go to the older posts, I don’t see it. Help! The kitchen in his basement is gorgeous and that shelf of villages in the bathroom is stunning. Love all the old Santa mugs, too. He needs to be featured in a Christmas magazine!
Suzy @ Worthing Court says
I loved the basement tour just as much as parts I and II! You’re right – it is a fabulous space! Interesting to find out that he is in a shop in Roswell. My aunt and uncle live in one of the antebellum homes there – Mimosa Hall. It’s a fabulous place that has been in my uncle’s family for many generations and was used as a hospital during the Civil War.
Arlene @At Home with the Grimms says
So lovely…I wonder how long it takes him to put it all in place and does he have help to do the decorating?
Marc Jones says
It takes me a good two weeks,sometimes longer if I am busy on other jobs,and NO,I have no help except with the big 14 foot tree in the great room. Otherwise I am on my own!
Absolutely Stunning, the entire house is beautiful! Sue
THANK YOU to you and Marc for these tours! This is seriously the prettiest house I have seen in a LONG time! I am in love with every nook and cranny and he has it decorated to perfection! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas, Rhoda! XO, Pinky
Marc Jones says

Amanda Eck says
Can I just say this has been a beautiful home tour!! But I do not envy him when it comes time take it all down! LOL thats a lot of work!!!
Stunning. Simply . . . stunning. At first I thought the basement suite must be where the decorating team must stay while decorating Marc’s house :). But I see in the comments that he does it himself! I am even more in awe, if that’s possible.
The photos are fantastic, Rhoda! (let the ‘pinning’ commence!) But I can only imagine how gorgeous it all is in person. Thank you so much for sharing!
Thanks SO much, Rhoda and Marc for sharing this fabulous home! I love EVERYTHING about it! It is stunning in every way, yet looks so invitingly warm and welcoming!
OH MY GOODNESS! This is one of the most beautiful homes I’ve seen in, well, forever! Thank you so much Rhoda and Marc for sharing with us. I did notice the brick floors in a couple of the rooms—I so want brick floors in my kitchen but have heard really good AND really bad about them. Does Marc have an opionion on them? THANKS again for sharing!
Marc Jones says
I have nothing bad to say for the brick floors. If I were building a home today I would put brick floors in the kitchen. It is the easiest maintenance floor of all I have. I chose not to put a sealer as I like them to age more and more. Every few years I do touch up the mortar/grout but it is very easy to accomplish and only in very few areas that may need it. For the record,they are old brick pavers not solid bricks! Have fun and keep decorating!

I have enjoyed the tour of your friends house as well as anything I have seen on all blogs. It is just spectacular. It is SO much, but somehow it is not overwhelming, but just magical. No matter where you look there is something else to grab your attention. I could look at your pictures for hours. Please tell him that his house tour made my week. Merry Christmas! Lori Lucas
Rosie S says
This house is so beautiful….every detail. LOVE the basement!
This home is beyond gorgeous! Marc, thank you for letting us take the tour. Your home and taste are absolutely the finest I have ever seen! I adore the way you have included whimsical details with fine traditional settings. The overall effect is so warm and ahhhh inspiring at the same time. I would love to see it without all the decorations up too. I can’t see enough of it! 🙂
I don’t know if comments are still reviewed–but I wondered if there was any chance of a manufacturer/style # for the brown chair featured in the beginning of the post, that the cute dog is curled up in? Looks sooo comfortable.
Thank you for this beautiful tour, it was so inspiring!
Amy in TN says
I just now saw these posts for this lively and welcoming home. Nothing was missed in this beautifully bedecked house!
Also, I instantly recognized this house when I saw the first pic in part one– my sister lives in the same neighborhood. It really is a small world. (BTW- we’re Cobb natives too!)
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you!
Christine Trebendis says
Thank you so much for sharing this gorgeous home. It put me in the holiday spirit, just going from room to room. I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!
As a Christmas obsessed woman who has 21 trees in her home with tons of decor, I am in awe of your creations and talent. Is there a way to follow you in Pinterest?
Dawn Burgess says
Just wanted to tell you I think your home is amazing, so beautiful and then you add the Christmas cheer. Christmas is my favourite holiday and i love decorating my home. Although its not as big as your home. It still gives me the good happy feeling that Christmas brings, to most anyway.
Your home is my dream home especially with the decorations.
Merry Christmas to you and your family Marc and the same to you Rhoda. xx
