I recently discovered the Bravo tv series Million Dollar Decorators…the show explores the work and personal lives of Los-Angeles-based designers Mary McDonald, Kathryn Ireland, Martyn Lawrence Bullard, Jeffrey Alan Marks and Nathan Turner…last week’s episode inspired me to take a closer look at these five talented designers, so this week, I’ll be featuring a Million Dollar Decorator a day…let us begin our journey with the glamorous Mary McDonald…
I truly admire designers who embrace color, layer pattern and enjoy the unexpected…for me, Mary McDonald embodies this bold approach…fearless and confident, there is something quite joyous and undeniably elegant about her interiors…a zest for life and passion for beauty…please enjoy some of my favorites!
“Raised in Brentwood, Mary McDonald attended the Parsons School of Design and began her career as a milliner with her designs featured in Vogue, Bazaar and Vanity Fair. Through extensive travel in Europe and the Far East, she has created a personal signature that is eclectic, classic, and clean while maintaining a strong sense of glamour and sophistication.”
“Her ability to combine bold patterns, Chinoiserie, and Indian influences with contemporary lines and an impeccable sense of color has established her signature style.”
