Step into Kyle Richards' beautiful home in Encino and you'd swear to yourself that you were in the middle of an actual winter wonderland and not in the temperate climes of Southern California, where you can still almost go swimming in the pool outside. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom started decorating her house for the holidays about a month ago, citing a real or made-up study that "people who decorate for the holidays early are happier overall" on her Instagram Stories in hopes that her husband, Mauricio Umansky, wouldn't mind all the Christmas stuff being up in November. Now, the house is all done and she's excited to bask in the flair every day.
"I love waking up to this," she wrote in a new Instagram Story that shows off one of her finished Christmas trees, which features a train set around the base and is strung with multicolored lights and a motley assortment of cute ornaments, including at least two stuffed teddy bears.
If you're looking for unique ways to decorate your own Christmas tree this year, we think that's a pretty cute idea to go ahead and steal — just take a beloved stuffed animal, spruce it up for the season, and voila!
Stringing lit garland over doorways is another great idea to consider trying for yourself. And look how pretty Kyle's second tree is, with its fairy lights and unique ornaments like several glowing ice cream cones and a miniature replica of Paris' Eiffel Tower.
