Designer Mary McDonald has done it again. This time in a home in Los Angeles.
The project is featured in the September issue of House Beautiful magazine…out on newsstands next week. I am so thrilled to have the exclusive preview of this Mary McDonald imagined home here on COCOCOZY! Woohooo!
In this home, interior designer Mary was working for a couple in their early 30’s who are both lawyers and have children. Mary’s goal with this project was to lighten and brighten the space. She is calling the style of this re-imagined house “a clean modern California take on French country with a teeny bit of industrial sparseness”.
Apparently before the remodel, the home was dreary and dark. Mary infused light and life into the home with a soft color palette of ivory, oatmeal, beige, gray, and taupe, with hints of lavender, aqua, and celadon.
For me , the kitchen is the jewel of this home…with Carrara marble counters, white cabinetry, except for the center island which is dark charcoal and then there is the fantastic gray and white chevron pattern floor made in an engineered stone tile. Love!
