On the Couch With Mary McDonald
We sat down for a chat with the Los Angeles designer about choosing the right colors, where she gets her inspiration, and the trendy color even she is tired of.
Mary McDonald (MM): Well, everything depends on all of the circumstances, but more often than not, I usually try to have one strong color (perhaps even a second balancing color), but I don't use a lot of really strong colors together. This is in general, of course. I might use a red and balance it with a brown, but red would be the strong color.
