Well I'm sure you've all seen the great works of Mary McDonald many times but I personally cannot tire of seeing her incredibly inspiring designs and as I am in search of all sorts of inspiration for my new place, I thought I'd turn to the ever stylish and creative Mary McDonald for some tips and ideas... One of the many things that I like about her designs is her ability to create fun statement floors, she is constantly drawing your eye to these amazing floor patterns and colours and I just LOVE that...What do you love about her designs?
This was a room with wooden floors that she didn’t want to tear up. So she took this seagrass rug and painted the rug with the pattern you see above. It really made the whole room more modern. She suggests for those who'd like to do this, to make sure the pattern’s going to hit where you want it to. If you do it right, it’ll really adds a lot to the room. But make sure you’re using natural fibers — seagrass, sisal or jute.
Don't you just love these floors....you'd think that was rug but she painted the wooden floors in zigzags to bring a fun and modern look to the floors....Amazing...
