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.
Making a Case
MHI: When you have to convince a client to sign off on a bold color choice, how do you make your case?
MM: I don't generally push my colors onto my clients. In fact, the one thing I start with when we work together is colors they like. I work my magic to balance them out or choose the right color to coordinate with what they like. I have a distinct group of clients that are more daring than others, and they are into that sort of leap -- others are not. I have to pick my battles.
