Mary McDonald decorated her office with many Chinoiserie elements, including Chinese branches painted on the back wall, a Chinese Chippendale chair, Chinese modern desk, and pagoda-style lamps (which she characterizes as one of her "all-time favorite purchases". She made bulletin boards in the recesses of the closet doors, and hung vintage fashion photos on the back wall. She uses lots of vintage silver to hold office supplies and flowers. Fabulous!
Mary McDonald- for those who boldly go where no one else does with color I salute you! May not be for everyone, but assuredly for those with discriminating taste. This is a power punch that screams confidence and clever design using two striking colors at once.
