Where would the Abdos find just the right ornaments to complement her home's mellow, minimalist style? Enter interior designer Darryl Carter, who, like Santa Claus, turned up one day with a band of merry assistants.

Carter's understated Christmas design was the perfect match for the home's décor. "I love Christmas, but I like things to blend seamlessly," he says. "The Abdos have a refined sensibility. It wouldn't make sense for their home to suddenly turn into Santa's workshop."
