Get The Look {Mary McDonald}

With all the buzz about her show Million Dollar Decorators, I thought it would be fun to revisit one of my favorite Mary McDonald interiors. The pink walls equate to instant happiness in my book!
I love that she thought outside the box and upholstered the chairs in the same hue as the walls of the foyer. The vintage pagoda mirror is a glamorous accent to blue and white stripes and ginger jars.
Pairing pinks of different shades makes for a layered look that's classic but fun. The large print on the Lisa Fine rug makes the small seating area look bigger. 

To recreate a similar look in your own home, start with pretty pinks for the sofa and the rug. They're a far cry from run-of-the-mill neutrals but how could you ever tire of hot pink? Balance the bright color with pillows and vases in a traditional blue and white palette. What do you think of this look? Would you ever go this bright chez vous?

Gorgeous. My grandmother, who was an interior designer loved pink rooms. She inspired me to do a pink room with gold accents and blue & white at my previous house in the US. Everyone loved that room. Also, I remembered seeing these gilt shelves on One King's Lane recently. You can add them to the list! https://www.onekingslane.com/product/11166/376863
