The designer, her husband and children live in this new house in Pacific Palisades that is very reminiscent of their East Coast roots. She grew up in Washington D.C. and her husband grew up in Chicago. Their memories of Christmas were always dusted in snow. As designer, Emily Sullivan likes to point out, “it’s very much a challenge to make it feel like Christmas when it’s sunny and warm in California.” Nevertheless, they have certainly done a lovely job…East Coast meets West Coast….enjoy!
