My First Christmas in LA | Holiday Decor

Lifestyle


You guys already know how excited I am to be spending the holidays in LA for the first time. Mainly because of not having to travel throughout the most hectic season – have you seen the airport during Christmas break?! It’s insane! But really, what I’m most excited about is the holiday decor!! With this being my first Christmas at home it was so fun starting fresh and making my holiday decor dreams come to life. So let me take you on a tour of our living room… this area got A LOT of holiday love, and I’m obsessed with how it turned out! #cozyvibes

Stevie and I had a blast picking out our first Christmas tree. We wanted it to be tall but not overwhelm the space and this one just worked out perfectly! For the ornaments, we went with a mainly neutral color palette and then added pops of red throughout. I love the mix of modern and traditional colorways together; it’s a fun twist on an old style!

After the tree, I think the most eye-catching part of the room is our fireplace mantel. I have always dreamed of hanging stockings above a fireplace so we decided to do just that! Guess which is Valentina’s and Sweetie’s 😉 Gotta spoil my girls! To dress up the mantel a little more we added a garland that lights up on the mantelpiece and different sized lanterns to the bottom.

For the rest of the living room, I spread out different little decor throughout the space. I placed a few cozy holiday themed pillows to the couch and of course, added PLENTY of candles almost everywhere lol! I think the simplest DIY for holiday decor is getting a bowl and filling it up with pinecones and a few of your leftover ornaments then placing a candle in the middle!

What do you guys think? I think we did pretty good for our first time decorating for the holidays! I especially love how everything looks at night with all of the little lights and candles lit. Makes me want to lay on the couch with a cozy throw and watch Christmas movies all night! Not only is this our first Christmas in LA, but it’ll also be our first Christmas with our baby girl Valentina. Can’t get any more special than that 🙂

What’s your family tradition for the holidays? Share them below; I would love to know!

  1. So let’s start with I am loving the decorations. <3 your home looks so light and beautiful. congratulations on your new little person in your lives, by the way, I just know how special that feels. our family tradition is to bake and bake lots of chocolate chip cookies, stock ourselves with mandarines and now when our baby is already one year old we get to go sliding down the snowy mountain all three of us. happy holidays yet to come Hendrix family!

  2. This looks like a Christmas dream. you did such a good job with decorating your place. it doesn’t even look like it’s your first time. it’s definitely more on a professional side of decoration here 🙂

  3. I hope you have such a blessed and RELAXING christmas at home with your sweet little family! Your home looks dreamy!!

  4. This time of year my husband and I celebrate Chanukkah. There’s a lot of history behind it which I won’t go into, nevertheless, it’s a big deal for us. It started at sundown on Dec. 12 and lasts for 8 days. Its symbolic of the Jews having oil for only 1 day but God intervened so it lasted for 8 days. Each night for 8 nights, we light our Chanukkia from left to right. The Shamash candle which is the highest on the Chanukkia represents Messiah.

  5. By the way, congratulations to Stevie, you, Sweetie and Valentina, the newest addition to the Hendrix family. You all look good together!
