The “Change Your Mind” singer teamed up with Balsam Hill to turn her Los Angeles home into a golden wonderland for the holidays and shared the transformation exclusively with PEOPLE.

“I was immediately drawn to all the gold stuff," said Kelly, 26. “Anyone who knows me knows that I love gold everything. It looks really great, and I think it’s cool that it’s not the typical red and green Christmas decorations. I really love just having a warm, cozy house where people can come.”

The Real cohost and self-proclaimed “Latina Martha Stewart” chatted with PEOPLE about how she created her very own winter wonderland at home.

“I don’t love going with the classic red and green,” says Bailon Hougton, 36, who teamed up with HomeGoods to deck her halls. “I knew that I wanted something sparkly and fun.”

The former Cheetah Girls singer brought to life her unique Christmas style by stocking up on finds like ornaments and tree toppers to complement her shimmery pastel look, which isn’t too far off from her equally over-the-top, blush-themed decor from last year.
