How to Nail the Perfect West Coast Holiday Vibe
Nature-inspired elements mix with glam accents for a fresh spin on seasonal entertaining
Find a Forever Tree
Embrace the faux-tree trend with a shimmering 7.5-foot tree in traditional green or breathtaking rose gold.
Style a Nature-Inspired Entryway
Turn a classic console into a decorating moment with tactile trimmings in soothing hues and a set of two-tone baskets for extra storage with an organic feel.

Take the Festivities Outside
When indoor-outdoor living is the order of the day, creating a cozy winter wonderland means doubling down on alfresco comfort. Pile a covered backyard seating nook with pillows, add some interesting planters and unexpected seating options—and don’t forget the lanterns for that magical holiday glow.

Dress Up Your Conversation Area
Flexible seating is a party host’s best friend. Bring in patterned throws and sparkly pillows to add interest to a neutral sofa. Worth the investment: a quality-crafted leather bench that also serves as a table.

Set a Festive Table
Dial up the dinner-party glamour by letting your food (and flatware!) take center stage. Tiered trays and footed cake plates at various heights add visual appeal; a wood tray adorned with greens brings everything together in an Instagram-worthy way.
