Our West Coast creative director Orlando Soria may live in Los Angeles, but that didn't stop him from turning his condo into an absolute winter wonderland. See the full home tour!

Over the last couple weeks, Homepolish has been releasing holiday design guides from our West Coast creative director Orlando Soria. But you’re in for a treat! Here, we’ve compiled a full home tour of his Los Angeles condo (aka ORCONDO), or what could easily be mistaken as the North Pole. There’s so much holiday cheer we also can’t stand it. Almost.
First of all, let’s talk about that incredible Christmas tree! Orlando bought a 17-foot giant from Wayfair this year, and it has us wishing we ALL had beautifully lofted ceilings. The true centerpiece of his holiday décor, it’s fashioned in a gleaming Scandinavian theme, complete with little wooden figurines and paper horses. Oh, and gingerbread. REAL gingerbread… that we’re dying to eat.
Of course, festive natural elements didn’t stop at the tree (which, if you couldn’t tell, was artificial). Orlando went through the entire home and added greenery to bring warmth to the space. Sprigs of pine and fragrant eucalyptus branches enlivened every corner, and we’re especially in love with the forest on his living room credenza where his gingerbread house sits.
Design is all in the details, so once Orlando finished the foundational greenery, he laid out a gorgeous holiday tablescape. Instead of going for the traditional red and green, he off-set the theme with fuchsia peonies and layered in pops of holiday sparkle (not to mention little miniature Santas for place card holders). It’s the perfect setting for holiday hosting (to give your guests a touch of design envy).
The table is surrounded by perfectly styled shelves. Orlando walked us through the basics of shelf styling, tips which could honestly work year-round. It’s making us want to rearrange everything from our books to those little knick knacks.
