My mission to highlight forever pieces (great furniture and accessories that can stay with you for a lifetime, through numerous moves or changes in circumstances) continues. Here are three different rooms, varied in size and formality, where Mary McDonald re-used the same elements: stools, pillows made from Brunschwig & Fils "Le Zebre," bone-inlaid chairs, and her signature blue-and-white ceramics. (If you browse Mary's site you'll notice that pagoda pops-up often too.) Laura over at Orange Beautiful calls this "mobile chic." To better see all the details. click on the images.
