I like McDonald's take on traditional style- in her interiors, rooms are glamorous, snappy, and classic. The dining room below is striking in a subtle and sophisticated way. The walls- covered in a vivid green de Gournay hand-painted chinoiserie print- are what really make this room a knock-out.
Her office (seen below) was featured in the Jan/Feb Domino. Here,the look is more movie star glamour. Once again, there are touches of chinoiserie in the desk and lamps (a girl after my own heart!). And the curtains in the pink room add graphic flair.
There is a section on her website entitled Mary McDonald At Home (currently under construction). Perhaps she is designing her own line of furniture and home accessories? I hope so! I definitely think she is an L.A. designer to watch, along with Ruthie Sommers.
