Ms. Mary


Mary McDonald has just debuted her designs under power house label Schumacher. But what is so great and inspiring about, yet again, a new line of prints & wovens? There is real ingenuity here- new styles & new ideas.

I love her line of appliques- easy to add to pillows, draperies or kick pleats and discrete enough they are just a nod...a wink.


She shows them here on pillows and below on a sofa skirt...

Here is an entry foyer she did a couple of years ago, so her new line has some affordable Gracie wallcovering too:

Kasbah Style

Moroccan Influence will be everywhere this Summer in the fashion & design world. What is Moroccan style and how do we bring it home? Here is Richard Branson's hotel in Marrakech, the Kasbah Tamadot.




I love all the fabric in the bedrooms- each suite is draped in linen fabric- the two tone drapes with one solid on one side and one on the other is brilliant- the luxury of yardage, yardage, yardage but the modern mix of 2 bold, solid colors!


I also love these simple, linen pillows in several hues. Timeless.

House Envy

I remember drooling over this house years ago in Veranda Magazine. This beautiful estate sits in posh Palm Beach and has just hit the market, so here is your chance! (For the itty bitty sum of $24m...yikes.)
