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.
MHI: What colors in particular do you love right now? Are there any color combos you're tired of?
MM: I have a dark teal blue green that I love, but I am having trouble getting anyone else on board. I sit with piles of linen velvet swatches on my desk wondering where I can use these. I think of coordinating Indian fabrics that would work and glossy paint colors.
Color combos I am tired of ... hmmm ... To me, it is how it is used. I am usually tired of more than the color. The thing about color is it can be used in so many combinations. So not really, but I am bit sick of the application of lime green in the past few years ... myself included.
