Christmas Decorating with Hommemaker

We partnered with Orlando Soria, founder of interior design blog, Hommemaker. See how he meticulously crafted his own California cool Christmas and the Crate and Barrel products he so cleverly integrated.

Decorating for Christmas has always been a huge deal in my family. I remember late nights in December when I’d wake up after my bedtime and stumble downstairs to discover my mother maniacally gilding pinecones or making a wreath of branches she gathered in the back yard. In our house, Christmastime meant one thing: going crazy decorating the whole house and having so much fun together doing it.
