Lifestyle brand and creative dynamo Jennie Kayne has such a beautiful, natural, unfussy, effortless design aesthetic when it comes to holiday decorating, and I joyfully dug into her lovely blog archives for Christmas decorating inspiration. Based in L.A. and with California-based retail stores (plus a store now in Tribeca), Jennie Kayne offers home decor including sumptuous alpaca pillows and throws which appear in images of her simply styled minimal modern home. You’ll notice a repetition of pared-down, organic, beautiful garlands, wreaths, and centerpieces as well as natural linen tablecloths and napkins in quiet tones with a youthful, rustic, neutral boho, laid back luxe vibe. See her inspiring tablescapes right here.
Jenni’s blog Rip & Tan explores her daily experience and is named for her daughter Ripley and son Tanner. The site offers an online peek into Jenni’s elegant homestead, where her creative circle of friends and family (and dogs Chachi and The Dude) personify the soulful stories and lush images of modern California living.
I’m an admirer of Jenni’s laid-back modern country Cali vibes, and in an interview with Forbes, she described her muse this way: “Nature and travel have been a big part of my life and a source of inspiration for me, so my aesthetic tends to be very earthy, warm and classic. I think that living a balanced, laid-back life doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice style.”
Whether your Christmas and holiday decorating style is charmingly “hippie chic” or falls somewhere between “California dreamin” and “just neutrals, please,” then you are in for a visual feast of soothing festive interior magic. Find gorgeous inspiration plus furniture and home decor suggestions to capture an earthy cozy mood for your home.

It was this image (above) of her bedroom with the fresh greenery swagged on her linen headboard that started the whole decor love affair for me! Wouldn’t it be comforting to retreat to a similar sanctuary of a bedroom?
