Traditional California Home

Even the 1930s-era car gets a festive touch with the Christmas greenery that's also seen on the windows and portico of this American Foursquare style home in California.

Come On In

Garland frames the door and the portico, while fresh pomegranates add color to the greenery.

Setting the Tone

A glass display box shows off holiday decorative items used throughout the home's Christmas displays, including a gold wishbone, a pomegranate and pinecone-trimmed greenery. Gifts wrapped in gold and plaid paper contribute to the classic style.

Traditional Christmas Decor

The traditional yellow living room is given classic holiday touches.

Vintage Charm

Vintage skis and an old-fashioned sled frame the space above the comfortable, tufted leather sofa in this traditional living room.

Christmas Wishes

Wishbone pillows match the small silver wishbones hanging from the Christmas tree, a cheeky nod to the homeowners' wish for a merry Christmas. The tree is further trimmed with classic details such as ribbon and silver and gold bulb ornaments but includes a modern twist with a marquee sign-inspired star.

Hung By the Chimney With Care

Plaid stockings hung on the mantel mimic the classic plaid throw pillows on the sofa.

Fresh Decor

Pomegranates and pinecones add color to the seasonal greenery that trims the mantel.

Amaryllis Blooms

Amaryllis blooms rest in a blue and white pot to blend Christmas decor with this living room's everyday decor. 

Cozy Dining Chairs

Plaid throws add both a seasonal decorative touch and a sense of coziness to each seat at this inviting dining room table. 

Ready for Guests

The plaid throws and napkins set a classic tone in this elegant, traditional table spread ready for a Christmas party. Gold plate chargers and flatware add a luxurious touch.

Pomegranates and Pinecones

Pomegranates and pinecones add color and texture to this fresh, evergreen garland centerpiece. The garland provides a natural contrast to the luxe crystal glasses and gold charger plates placed at each setting.

Cozy Kitchen

Red and gold accents add a touch of holiday charm and contrast, making this cozy kitchen ready for company.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

Wishbones serve as both the decor theme and cookie inspiration for the holiday spread. A marble countertop on the island offers an elegant backdrop for the gold accents of the snack and beverage display.

Gold and White

The wishbones offer a playful nod to the homeowners' wish for a merry Christmas for all. Gold flatware and white cake bops and wishbone cookies create an elegant holiday spread for guests.

Fresh and Fragrant

The inviting breakfast nook with pale blue walls and crisp white cabinetry and trim is set for Christmas. Fresh greenery trimmed with pomegranates, cinnamon sticks and pinecones create fresh, fragrant holiday decor that's in keeping with the home's classic design.

Understated Elegance

Greenery trimmed with cinnamon sticks adds a fresh, fragrant touch to the mirror in this elegant powder room featuring Phillip Jeffries' Chain Link wallpaper.

Inside and Out

Thanks to the temperate California winter weather, the back porch can be enjoyed at Christmas time. Garland dressed with pomegranates and pinecones as well as plaid accessories help dress the table and sideboard for the occasion.
