Mary McDonald’s Latest Collection for Schumacher
Million Dollar Decorators, the short-lived reality series that covered the drama of interior design, aired on Bravo when I was thirteen years old. The hysterical and glamorous Auntie Mame-esque designer Mary McDonald captivated my attention. Not only was I enamored by her award-winning work, but by the prospect of pursuing a career in interiors.
More than a decade later, Mary McDonald continues to inspire me and my work as an interior designer with her illustrious projects and notable collections with industry giants. One such collection with Schumacher has made waves in the industry. First released 2013, McDonald’s collection with Schumacher redefined classics with a modern edge. Since its initial debut, the collection has grown with additional color ways, trimmings, and prints.
In a much anticipated lead-up, Schumacher has just released an exciting new collection of performance fabrics and trimmings with McDonald. Featuring springy greens, spritely hues of blue, sunny yellows, and dashes of pink, the collection screams outdoor entertaining while still remaining classic. Take a look below and click here to view the whole collection!

Heirloom Artifacts by Stephanie Sabbe
Nashville-based interior designer, Stephanie Sabbe, has launched her first ever home goods concept store. Known for her organic approach to traditionalism, Sabbe has forayed her eye for objet into Heirloom Artifacts. The shop offers a selection of artisan textiles, antiquities, and a variety of home accessories, including candle chasers, accent pillows and restored antique chairs, all carefully curated by Sabbe herself.
Aiming to provide a creative space for all, the shop also hosts monthly workshops like chain stitching and still-life painting. The store is located in the Belle Meade neighborhood of Nashville and is surely a hidden gem one mustn’t miss.
