ABOUT THE COVER: Interior designer Doug Hiatt decorated his Palm Springs home especially for our holiday cover. A plantation noble fir tree was cut in the state of Washington, flown to Los Angeles and rushed by ambulance to the desert. Handmade crystal ornaments arrived from Italy. White-flocked tamarisk tree boughs, purple apples and candles in crystal glasses were on the mantel while the tree was subtly flocked in purple. The holiday models wear fashions from Saks Fifth Avenue. Photo by Teke.
