Mary McDonald

Posted on Tue, 7 Aug 2007 by KiM

Mary McDonald is an interior designer out of Los Angeles and I adore her ethnic/eclectic style and use of intense colours and patterns. Her work has been featured on the cover of House Beautiful, House & Garden and Domino. “Through extensive travel throughout Europe and the Far East, she has created a personal signature that is eclectic, classic and clean. Her ability to combine European antiques, Chinoisery, and Indian influences, with Contemporary lines and an impeccable sense of color have made her one of the most sought after interior designers in Los Angeles.”

Brace yourself for the clash of the pattern and the knock out punch of the colours. The 60s and 70s at their not so subtle OTT best. Some are just so right and many are oh so so wrong. Once again these are scanned from that extraordinary style source Practical Decorating Ideas, Ure Smith , Sydney 1973.

Drake Design Associates

Jamie Drake is a genius with colour. His portfolio is brilliant, and this Fifth Avenue loft really stood out. “Surprise and movement – that’s what I like. Colors both ground and animate this space, whether washing in yellow or popping with pink. High gloss lacquer, antique mirror and rich silk velvets and shantungs polish up the eclectic mix of furnishings.”
