Inspiration started with Slim Aarons, Audrey Hepburn, and the colorful doors of Palm Springs.

It’s no surprise how much I love the candy-colored doors of Palm Springs.

And Slim Aarons and Audrey Hepburn are my forever inspirations.

 So it only seemed fitting that they be my jumping off point when it came to decorating for Christmas!

When I spotted these candy-colored ornaments, it was a no-brainer what my color palette would be!

I am a big fan of white, gold and happy Palm Springs hues like pink, yellow and aqua, so it made perfect sense that that would be my holiday palette.

Tip: Make your own rules and don’t be afraid to think beyond red and green!

I also had fun mixing motifs I love with my holiday decor: tropical leaves, pineapples, palm fronds, Greek key.

Modern Christmas Wreaths: Palm leaf wreath + banana leaf wreaths perfect for Palm Springs! #christmasdecorating

Marrying palms to pines feels unexpected, yet makes total sense in Palm Springs where from the palm tree-lined streets, we see the snow-covered mountain in the distance.

And why shouldn’t you have a palm frond wreath?

I love how these napkin rings feel like giant cocktail rings and the scalloped edges of the placemats mimick the quatrefoil dining chairs.

Gold adds a glamorous touch, from the plates to the placemats to the gold flatware.
