2009: Have a Witty Holiday

The Obamas chose Simon Doonan, the creative director of Barney's New York, to decorate the White House for Christmas this year and he starts today. Will there be a fake Madonna? Probably not. Lots of Jonathan Adler stuff? Maybe. What do you think? We rounded up past holiday window displays at Barneys for inspiration.

The White House tree arrived last Friday and the White House will be open for for tours starting today while the decorations begin.

The New York Times predicts that Simon will use lots of artwork by children. What do you predict? Maybe face caricatures of the Obamas?
