HC California Chic and Casual Gift Guide by Nathan Turner
I couldn’t think of a more fun person to contribute a California chic and casual gift guide than interior designer, entertaining expert, and store owner Nathan Turner. As many of you probably saw of the show Million Dollar Decorators, he’s extremely funny and down to earth. I really think they should create a show just for him and Mary McDonald if they haven’t already. He always seems to be traveling somewhere so I’m glad I can follow along on his adventure via Instagram. I think he’s chosen some great last minute gift ideas too. Enjoy!
“When I was 16, my parents did the whole car on the driveway with a bow on it. Which seems like it’s out of a television commercial but at the time it was very fun. Nowadays the best gift for me is taking time to get away & relax. This year will be on Harbour Island.” – Nathan Turner

“When I spend Christmas with my family it’s usually in Lake Tahoe. We’ve always gone out to the sierras and cut down our own tree. Which always feels very old fashioned to me and makes for a great day.” – Nathan Turner
