For some reason Christmas this year seems to have flown by faster than usual, yes? The comfort and joy of the season is needed now more than ever, and I’m not planning on taking down the decorations anytime soon! Over the holiday weekend, I spent some time perusing Pinterest and stumbled upon the exquisitely decorated Beverly Hills home of interior designer Mary McDonald. It was featured in the holiday 2008 issue of Veranda magazine, and it is just as classic and timeless today. A citrus palette pops against blue and white Chinoiserie porcelain, and exotic peacock feathers add dramatic flair. Delicate paperwhites and fresh greenery enliven the elegant grey library. Fine antiques and portraits abound, creating a joyous home that stands the test of time.
