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?
