Favorite Interior of 2009- Found Already??


We’re only nering the end of the first week of 2009 and already I think I can confidently say that I have found my FAVORITE interior of the year- Mary McDonald’s interiors of her Hollywood guest house. You read that right, this is her guest house. I can’t even begin to discuss how much I love it because I might have a stroke, and I have to go to yoga in an hour.
Her place is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!

This kitchen is just BEYOND. The bold wallpaper, the plates, the IKEA table (even Mary goes high/low), the snakeskin seats on the traditional chairs…

How about this pagoda-esque headboard? And the glossy red/orange ceiling?

This reminds me of the cabanas at the Viceroy Palm Springs (p.s. Kelly Wearstler, you are on notice. Mary is schooling you right now design wise!) The greek key trims, curtained walls…delish.

I literally screamed when I saw this room- it’s like living inside a spool of grosgrain ribbon! LOVE. LOVE. LOVE.

These rooms are more polished and traditional- I love the use of grey with pops of bright colors.

The peice de resistance– the master bedroom done in dark navy with bright pink accents and crisp white details. Notice the ceiling of the canopy bed in bright pink- what a genius little detail. This room really has all traditional furnishings, but it’s just been taken to a new, bolder level.

This bathroom with it’s chevron painted floor is magnificent. Calming yet oh-so-cool.

I don’t thin I’ve been this excited over an interior in a long time! I love Mary’s risky, bold palette yet respect for traditional design. I am in love!
