Haute Holiday Decorating: Domain WeHo Style
With the holiday season just around the corner, it’s time to think about how to decorate your New West Hollywood Apartment. We love traditional Christmas and Hanukkah decor because it’s warm and inviting. However, felt stockings, candy canes, old brass menorahs and cheesy wooden nutcrackers might not be a good fit for you. If you favor contemporary design, and are looking to spice up your holiday decor and are fresh out of ideas, take a look through our uniquely modern design tips and tricks. Ready to be inspired?
In case you’re short on space and don’t have the room for a towering Douglas fir, here’s a lovely alternative to your regular Christmas tree. This concept only requires a few small boughs from a pine tree (real or fake branches will do just fine), and a handful of nails to hold the branches in place. Add a bit of sparkle with a star “topper,” a single string of lights and you’re all set for the simplest, chicest Christmas ever. (Source: Christmas.365greetings.com)
Living succulents are eco-friendly, low maintenance and an excellent modern Christmas decorating idea. Arrange a few in a centerpiece, or go big and bold with a succulent wreath or garland. However you use these chic, low-water plants, you can definitely enjoy them long after Christmas is over. (Source: Freshome and Lila B. Design)
Modern Manzanita Menorah
For a fresh take on the classic menorah, consider a manzanita branch candelabra as your table’s centerpiece. Get crafty and try the do-it-yourself approach by spray-painting a branch with silver metallic spray paint and securing slender, white tea lights with a hot glue gun or wire. (Source: HGTV)
Mid-Century Dinner Party

Look for bright, retro pieces that boast mod patterns and colors to enhance your tablescape. Mix and match bubbly shapes and vibrant colors to create something that’s totally non-traditional for a holiday place setting. (Source: Overstock.com)
