Mary McDonald's home at Christmas

Here is a peek at Mary McDonald's Beverly Hills home all decked out for the holidays.  She is definitely my favorite "Million Dollar Decorator".  I love the natural elements she chose for her home at Christmas. It's all very natural, but still decadently over-the-top!  

I love the orange fabric touches with the citrus topiaries and indoor fruit trees. The peacocks really add a festive air.

More orange with that lovely blue and white porcelain.  The holiday decor is still understated, but the whole room looks festive. 

What a tree topper!


More peacock and citrus elements frame this gorgeous doorway.


I love the subdued color palette in the dining room, don't you?
