If asked who my top designer influences were I would have to put Ms. Mary McDonald at the top. I have loved her work way before Bravo made her a reality star and was so excited to hear she was doing a fabric line with Schumacher! I am sure we will see many more collections from her (a la Kelly Wearstler). How about these drapes, y’all?
Loving the unique large scale appliques too!
How gorgeous do these all look together? Such great trims too! I love me a good trim!
Pretty crazy about this print which is very reminiscent of Gracie wallpapers ( Mary used a great light blue Gracie in her bedroom makeover on MDD if you recall). I’ve priced that stuff out and it’s a fortune- so you can get the look with fabric at a somewhat cheaper price by making panels out of this fabric. If you have a huge wall you could frame a panel of this, but it’s HUGE.
This fabric to the left would be great on a chair with the stripe centered on it! And the print at right is a large scale and would be great on a chair or as drapes.
LOVE this marbleized print for pillows- and this applique would be so great on the back of upholstered dining chairs!
Mary also released a collection of gorgeous rugs for Patterson, Flynn Martin.
Speaking of Mary, I was so excited to see the redo of her living room in emerald green because that’s the color I’m thinking will be the only accent color in my new living room and dining room. Even before it was dubbed the “color of 2013″ I wanted to use it.
Here it is again in the Monika Chiang store Mary did (which I think is bananas good).
Julie posted this pic of a room done by the FAB Grant K. Gibson this morning and these are the exact chairs I was thinking of doing in my dining room- white frame Louis chairs with emerald upholstery. What do you think?
Side note: I think MDD should just be Mary and Nathan and I also am 99% sure that the three of us would be best friends if introduced. Just sayin’
