We're of the opinion that holiday décor should be a slightly more festive extension of your year-round style, and we're pleased to report that West Elm's 2018 holiday collection epitomizes that sentiment.
Aside from a few elevated holiday-specific essentials (like a gorgeous marble and brass menorah and faux-fur stockings), most of the new products fall under the wide umbrella of winter décor, as opposed to distinctly Christmas or Hanukkah or Thanksgiving. In that vein, the brand embraced a more universal color palette once again, introducing lustrous pinks, ambers, golds, and blues into the typical holiday aesthetic.
Generally speaking, the new collection is big on texture, emphasizing cozy materials like velvet, shearling, and faux fur, plus seasonally appropriate faux botanicals and wreaths—all of which add a sense of depth and complexity to each space. In other words, it's basically the coziest thing we've ever seen, and now we're beyond excited for the holidays.
