Visual Treats for Recent Peeps/Day 9 - Interior by Mary McDonald


You all know that I have always found the color pink to be one of the most versatile colors available, and one which I use frequently in bedrooms and living rooms.  When grounded by classical elements, it is quite sophisticated and elegant as demonstrated in this interior by Mary McDonald.  Balanced symmetry of slipper chairs with centre table, chinoiserie elements such as the wall mirror and blue/white vases adds visual zip, a zebra skin on dark floor introduces the exotic, and exquisite little oil paintings and stacked plates all contribute to this striking composition.  Truly, a wonderful and dramatic entry!


PS:  Diana Vreeland famously said, "Pink is the navy-blue of India;" could she have foreseen its easy assimilation into every aspect of design within these shores?
