Designer crush

by Shelly

I finally got a little time yesterday to catch up on magazine reading and online mag reading too! In the October/November issue of Lonny there is a fabulous spread on Mary McDonald who is celebrated for wonderfully capturing old Hollywood style in her designs. I fell in LOVE with Mary’s dressing area that is featured in her new book Mary McDonald: Interiors: The Allure of Style.

The wallpaper is AMAZING first off! And I only wish I had a dressing area like this…wowzers! The tufted ottoman, that gorgeous blue, the mirrored vanity..so pretty!  The one idea in this room that I might just have to borrow, is the way she hangs her handbags on hooks in the closet. Such an easy idea, but it looks so nice and organized!

Well, the little one and I are guy free this weekend. The hubs is at a guys getaway, so its just us girls! I’m having a fun ladies wine party tomorrow night with a Halloween theme. I’ll make sure to recap the details on Monday! Hope you have some fun planned this weekend too!

What kind of hooks do you think you’d use for the purses? Wouldn’t a regular coat hook end up bending the purse handles?

Ooh didn’t think of that problem. Maybe something like a plant hook..they’re like a large cup hook really. I am seriously considering this idea so if I do it I will definitely share!
