"I love trays in the bathroom, on my desk, or on a bedside table. It's a very chic vessel to corral all my stuff. Also, a little animal print — without sacrificing an actually animal — is always cool in my book."
— Mary Elizabeth, interior YouTube vlogger at Hey Mary Elizabeth Jonathan Adler Valet Tiger Orange Tray, $68, available at Jonathan Adler
"I love to say that art comes in two forms — the type you hang on your wall, and the piece you have on the floor. Rugs are tone-setters that also anchor a space, and a perfect addition to bring out the coziness of a room. I'm loving this neutral, flat-weave rug at the moment."
— Alyssa Rosenheck, photographer and blogger at The New Southern Urban Outfitters Cayler Geo Print Rug, $39 - $129, available at Urban Outfitters
"I'm a huge fan of Desanka from the brand Lux/Eros. I have lots of open shelving in my home, so having handmade pieces on display that are both functional and beautiful really make me happy. Right now I'm crushing these millennial pink bowls, hard."
— Justina Blakeney, author and interior blogger Lux/Eros Blush and Gold Pyramid Bowl, $75, available at Lux/Eros
— PAID — Topping our holiday wish list? This foldable, clear acrylic tray by CB2. Perfect for serving drinks and snacks when we're entertaining, then displaying our fave accent pieces once the party is over. CB2 Acrylic Tray Table, $79.95, available at CB2.
"As I get older, I've grown to appreciate great bedding so much more. These bamboo sheets and bed cover by Suku are my absolute favorite. They feel like sleeping in the clouds. Plus, I just love the vibrant colors and prints."
— Joy Cho, blogger at Oh Joy! Suku Yellow Stripe Quilt Cover Set, $280, available at Suku
"I love giving and receiving art: It's such a great way to show your recipient that you know them well enough to know their taste in such a subjective arena.
Twyla put together a holiday collection of specially priced, limited-edition fine arts prints that come framed and matted. This abstract piece from Israeli artist Amir Guberstein is mesmerizing. Original art for under $150? Very merry, indeed." — Anne Sage, lifestyle blogger Amir Guberstein DOOR-1, $130, available at Twyla
"We appreciate good design and this little stool by Fritz Hansen is big on our wish lists this year. Sleek and timeless, the chair is a nod to the 1970s. We love the combo of the slender chrome legs and cognac leather seat. It's a great addition to a dining setting — perhaps for extra Christmas guests — and can be used next to the bed as a night stand."
— Holly Marder and Hedda Pier, founders of Avenue Lifestyle Fritz Hansen Dot Stool, $245, available at Connox
"The Aerin x Williams Sonoma Home collaboration has so many fabulous objects at a decent price point. One of my favorite items from this lineup is this woven gold cachepot. It's perfect for a simple arrangement of fresh cut flowers or as a vessel for a chic, potted orchid. "
— Paloma Contreras, interior designer and blogger Aerin x Williams Sonoma Gold Woven Cachepots, $50 to $75, available at Williams Sonoma
"I recently returned from a trip to Copenhagen where I immersed myself in all things Danish design. One brand that caught my eye was
Menu, most notably the JWDA Concrete Lamp. I love how Jonas Wagnell, the designer, gave this piece a modern aesthetic while still referencing the form and function of a traditional oil lamp. Plus, it has the perfect cozy and inviting glow for those !" Hygge vibes — Will Taylor, blogger at Bright.Bazaar Menu Concrete Table Lamp, $200, available at TRNK
"On the top of my wish list this year is this floor-pillow-slash-dog-bed from
The Wolf Nest. These pillows are one-of-a-kind and makes a perfect home for your pup. I'm dedicated to making intentional purchases and tend to gravitate towards unique and quality goods that support small businesses. This brand donates a portion of sales to dog shelters in L.A. — a great reason to justify your purchase if there ever is one." — Megan Martinez, blogger at Boho Beach Bungalow The Wolf Nest Jasper Indigo Mudcloth Pillow, $395, available at The Wolf Nest
"There are few things that can shape the personality of a room better than art. As I put the finishing touches on our family room in our new home, I can't get this piece by Anna Ullman out of my mind. I love how clean and simple yet graphically powerful it is all at once."
— Crystal Palecek, interiors and lifestyle blogger Anna Ullman for Artfully Walls Out of Shape Print, $102, available at The Maryn
