Mary McDonald - White and Chinoiserie
As each of these rooms reveals, Mary McDonald invariably combines white and Chinoiserie. The white elements may be Chinoiserie - pagoda beds, foo dogs, pagodas, mirrors, Blanc de Chine, or ginger jars. In the alternative, white is introduced to a room that has colorful Chinoiserie pieces through white walls, lighting, bedding, rugs, or upholstery. Either way, the white brings the room a fresh, crisp, and modern feel.
