Whenever I moved out my closet of an apartment in New York and into a human-sized dwelling a few years ago, I became obsessed with decorating. I didn’t care if it was headboards, rugs, window treatments or little tchotchkes, I wanted to look at and snap up anything decor-related. My love for all things design has persisted ever since, and I know there are so many others out there who are just as obsessed with creating and entertaining in a beautiful home. And that’s exactly who today’s gift guides are for: all those decor divas and entertaining extraordinaires on your holiday list.
Everyone loves a good twist on a great gift, so give her something extra special with a cute chevron-patterned latte cup, a polka-dot jewelry box and bookends with some real edge. Solve all of her stationery needs with a bright and sunny notepad or adorable pencil pouch, and help her entertain with items like an artsy vase, a cheeky cheese board, a yummy-smelling candle or a gilded decanter.
Give your favorite ladies a dose of elegance with a hammered-metal vase, a gorgeous gold mirror or a lush, faux-fur pillow. Throw in some bright colors with a cute clock, a patterned flask or a pretty painting, and help her cozy up with a luxe throw and beautiful coffee-table read.
What’s better than getting design staples like lamps, rugs, poufs and paintings? Getting them in bold shades of orange, blue, purple and pink! Help her feel luxurious with gilded accessories like serving bowls, champagne buckets and fancy candles, and have a little fun with animal sculptures in a bright hue.
