Making An Entrance “This entry opens the heart as well as the home,” says interior designer Susan Spath. Every detail spills over with Spath’s enchantment of the holidays. The beauty of nature highlighted with fabulous design encourages lingering, rather than merely walking past. Spath’s curated collection can be found at Kern & Company, with locations in Solana Beach and Rancho Santa Fe. kerncodesigns.com

Dressed and Ready All things shiny — crystal, sterling, and china — make this table “dressed for the holidays,” says Elizabeth Davidson, president of La Jolla’s Ark Antiques. The nonprofit organization and boutique sells quality consigned and donated merchandise, including furniture, china, lighting, art, and jewelry, with proceeds benefiting animal welfare charities. arkantiques.org
