Celebrity Homes: Holiday Decorating From the Stars

Check out these star-studded design and entertaining ideas from the homes of Kathie Lee Gifford, Jewel and Holly Robinson Peete. We've got your first look at the HGTV special that's brimming with good cheer.


Holly Robinson Peete and Designer Sandra Espinet

Interior designer Sandra Espinet transformed actress Holly Robinson Peete's California home from Tuscan to tropical for the holidays.


Tropical Trimmings

For some people, shopping for wrapping paper is like being a kid in a candy store. No wonder — choices in pattern and paper are seemingly endless. Feel free to mix and match; just stay within the same color family and don't go overboard.


Magnificent Mantel

Gaze in this mirror and get a glimpse of the massive ornaments suspended from Holly's ceiling. If you want to make a statement that's high impact, look up and consider the possibilities of decorating your home's fifth wall.

Ocean of Possibilities

Bring your family vacation home for the holidays. Display shells in a clear container for a simple, inexpensive decoration that can beautify any surface all year long.

Kathie Lee Gifford and Designer Eddie Ross

Interior designer Eddie Ross gave TV host Kathie Lee Gifford's home a one-of-a-kind, handmade touch for the holidays.


Handmade Holiday

Eddie was handpicked to work with Kathie for HGTV's Celebrity Holiday Homes. His decor is festive and fresh with a hint of handmade, like the tabletop tree adorned with ornaments made out of recycled dress shirts.


Patterned Embellishments

Hang a lot of the same kind of ornaments on an undersized tree for maximum effect. This beauty sits atop an entryway table in Kathie's Connecticut home.


Old Shirt, New Life

Save yourself a trip to the fabric store and create simple no-sew ornaments from old shirts.


Thinking Outside the Box

If you're tired of red, white and green, jewel tones are a great alternative.


Sweetness on a Stick

When preparing for a holiday party, think like a caterer and decorate your table. Serve pretty food like these no-cook confections — fun for guests and easy on the host.

Bubbly Not Boring

Kathie's caterer served these festive cocktails that feature pomegranate.


Jewel's Down-Home, Country Christmas

Interior designer Erinn Valencich gave singer Jewel's (far right) home a rustic, homespun look for the holidays.


Tree Your Traditions

Too tired to decorate? You could be coming down with ornament boredom. Pick yourself up by your bootstraps, and do something totally different this year. Keeping it simple helps revive the spirit and add new life to your holiday home.

Going Gold

Gold and glass meld beautifully and shimmer against the soft greens of the trees which adorn Jewel's \"studio home.\"


Monochromatic Mix

Choose a monochromatic color scheme for a look of understated elegance. Add texture with gifts from nature like raffia, feathers and pinecones.



Talk about comfort food! Homemade goodies are tastier and more fun during the holidays.


Jewel's Cherry Pie

For a simple dessert to serve this season, try this pie and share a tradition with a singing star.
