All Things Mary... McDonald of Course
Yes, I am a member of the Mary McDonald fan club. Don't miss her work in the February issue of House Beautiful. What captivates me are the unique window treatments. She uses fashion fabrics on the windows in this Beverly Hills house. The drapes are gray cashmere with red under curtains of striped silk. The red accents add visual interest to this otherwaise masculine room with a bit of a classic English feel... love it.
The faux zebra rug is a great touch in the den. The yellow curtains pop with all the black and white stripes...I'm seeing a lot of woven shades with side panels lately. It adds an organic quality to this room when paired with the sisal rug.
