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.
MM: I do not have any rules really. If the client is a vivacious, bold person, I might go for strong color in the bedroom, depending on the rest of the house. I probably have more soft palette bedrooms than anything else, but I have done a few very bright color combo bedrooms. One was done in dark coral, brown and red, and orange. I once did royal blue upholstered walls at a beach house. It all depends on the house and the person.
