Designer Spotlight: Mary McDonald

Mary McDonald is probably one of the more well-known designers of the moment. Her sense of luxury and opulence put her on par with Dorothy Draper, but in a modern way. Thanks to the show Million Dollar Decorators, she has recently become fairly high-profile outside the decor world. Anytime I need inspiration for a bold and elegant design, I flip through her portfolio or books. Here are just a couple of my favorite images from her online portfolio. I hope you'll go check out the rest of her work.

Trademarks include an Old Hollywood take on traditional decor, bolster pillows, and carefully edited color palettes. Love her work!
