Mary McDonald: Allure of Style

51f-TjZH4QL__SS500_

Yesterday I was a Barnes & Noble finishing up my Christmas shopping when I came across Mary McDonald’s new book “The Allure of Style”.  I opened it up and looked at a few pictures, very familiar to me since I’ve been a fan of hers for a while now, and without hesitation (or price tag check) went to the counter to buy myself a little gift.  I am SO glad I did because this book is now my favorite design book by FAR, trumping Kelly Wearstler’s Modern Glamour easily (sorry Kelly).  I literally want to bow down to Mary- she is clearly a genius when it comes to design. Her book is such an incredible example of the signature, elegant, fun yet timeless look she creates. I am totally in awe after seeing it all together in one place.  I know I’ve posted these before, but here are some favorites.  This book is a great gift for any design aficionado- and you can enter to win it here (along with many other amazing things) on our 12 Days of High Gloss Giveaways!

How about her new office done ALL in leopard. I love me some leopard, but this might be a bit more than even I can handle!
