The Gay family home is decorated with a record-setting 601,736 holiday lights.
This just in: the record for the most home holiday lights has been broken. And broken again. And broken yet again.
According to the Guinness Book, it has been set four times since 2001...twice by a family in New York (current record-holder pictured above) and twice by a family in Canberra, Australia (pictured below).
The Richards' home held the title last year with 502,165 holiday lights.
For both the Richards and the Gay family, that's got to add up to a large electrical bill during the holidays. We can only hope they're able to save by throwing energy-efficient LED tape lights into the mix.

Merry Christmas everyone!
We hope you're gathered around the tree with loved ones, opening beautifully wrapped gifts (which we can only hope is awesome modern lighting)!

Merry Christmas Eve everyone!
Hopefully you're done shopping the perfect lighting for loved ones (wink, wink), and just hanging out in your kitchen baking lots of cookies with family and friends...
This Christmas movie happened to have some of the best interior design.
If you're like me, you've been watching all the classic Christmas movies... One of my favorites is The Holiday and it's not for the genius film work, but rather the incredible interior design. Of course there's other movies that top my list for this time of year, but I always watch this one for the fabulous Los Angeles home.
This image above shows the downstairs hallway, the sitting area in the kitchen and a bit of the entryway, all of which are perfect. The home is modern, yet comfortably livable. The modern lantern pendant lighting throughout is consistent, as you can see with the kitchen design below...
Modern kitchen design from Hollywood.
This modern kitchen is no doubt a dream space, whether you like to cook or not. And with the holidays this week, can you imagine how wonderful it would be to entertain family and friends here, before moving on to the dining room...
The modern bar seating makes this kitchen a cool hang out as well as a place to make a yummy Christmas meal.
This modern bedroom belonged to Cameron Diaz in The Holiday.
If you've seen the movie, then you know the best part about the master bedroom... The remote control window shades! The extra large table lamps flank a beautiful bed, while the oversized area rug just makes this room even more comfortable.
There's no better place to relax from all the cooking and reminiscing done in that beautiful kitchen downstairs...

Easy ways to add style to your powder room for the holidays.
The dining room and sitting areas are of course important during the holidays, since that's where you'll be spending all your time with family and friends. But there's one other room that is really important and often overlooked... the powder room.
It's a room that gets heavy traffic and therefore, we think, should have just as much style as the rest of your home. Since there's a shortage of time, we have a few easy ideas for preparing your powder room.
East and economical, you could always add interest with paint. We suggest stripes like this image above, but even just painting all the walls the same color will create big change.

Gallery walls are easy and provide lots of personality.
If you don't know this yet, gallery walls look great in any room. Why not add a little art and maybe even a colorful area rug to your powder room for high impact?!
