Set decorator Justine Mercado is such a creative force at making the homes on The Young and the Restless merry and bright for the holiday season that her colleagues christened her as the “Christmas Queen.” Fortunately, you don’t have to wait until the week of Christmas to feast your eyes on the holiday décor while watching Y&R on CBS.
