Celebrated Los Angeles decorator Mary McDonald has been working in the industry for more than fifteen years. A third-generation Angeleno raised in Brentwood, her projects have captivated the design community.
In her first book, award-winning interior designer Mary McDonald inspires readers to combine old-fashioned elegance with the joy of fearless, exuberant decorating. Consistently ranked one of House Beautiful’s top 100 designers, L.A.-based Mary McDonald’s gorgeous, feminine interiors have graced the cover of every major design magazine. Dubbed the "decorating daredevil" by Domino magazine, McDonald began her career as a milliner and retains a sense of "couture chic" that inspires the look of her interiors, which are simultaneously timeless and of the moment. Her ability to combine bold patterns, chinoiserie, and Indian influences with contemporary lines and an impeccable sense of color has made her one of the most sought-after interior designers working today. Now in her first book, as vibrant and whimsical as Mary and her work, McDonald explores the themes that inform her stylish yet playful sensibility. From her own refurbishment of Buster Keaton’s legendary villa to a stunning range of client projects, McDonald carefully details the colors, fabrics, and accessories she uses to seamlessly pull each look together. Exquisitely photographed, this vivid book is a must for anyone who loves sophisticated, ravishing interiors.

  • FABULOUS book!!!
    Verified Purchase

    I LOVE, LOVE this book. I am an amateur decorator and this book is LOADED with fabulous, wonderful photos of all types of rooms that she's created. Her style is quite over-the-top, but I've gotten many ideas that I can adjust to my lifestyle. This is the kind of book that you should look at when you have time, sitting in your favorite chair, with a nice will send you to a place that will make you forget your current problems. I look at each photo and cannot believe that people actually live like this. If you enjoy design books, this is one that you should really have in your library.

    I already loved Mary McDonald. Check her out on the reality series on Bravo TV with other design super stars. Even if you are not a design nut, you'll love it. Besides her fabulous ability to present great design, she is a real character. This book really shows her fabulous design sensibilities. The photographs in the books are perfect and show her designs in detail. I am very pleased with the book and it reinforces why I am a great admirer of Ms. McDonald.
