Sneak Peek: Mary Douglas Drysdale in House Beautiful!


A huge thanks to House Beautiful for letting me share this sneak peek of  Mary Douglas Drysdales' transformation of a classic Georgetown rowhouse in their July/August issued devoted to small spaces and how to make the most of each square foot. (all photographs by Bjorn Wallander)


A master at transforming interiors, Mary combined simple moldings, sunny patterns, and antique family heirlooms to create warmth and comfort. Throughout the first floor, subtly striped walls add charm to a narrow space, and the cohesive yellow and white palette make small rooms seem larger.


When extra space is at a premium, beautifully styled shelves can also be practical storage.  


Check out these floors awash in a barely-there but still stunning pattern.  Row houses tend to be narrow and these floors create an expansive feel.


Love all these charming touches in this bedroom.


Can't wait till my July/August issue arrives in the mailbox!  Hope you have a great weekend, Michele

We love Mary's style too! Thanks for giving us a sneak peak. As much as she is known for subtle color and yellow, she also has bold, Signature Colors. Look at the Lipstick Plus Pink Faux Linen she used recently for Antiques in Alexandria, for instance. A bold color that works for a small space and with light, pickled flooring as well. Mary is a master of how to use color.

I am loving yellow right now and this is gorgeous! Haven't seen much of MDD lately but she knocked it out of the park on this one.

Just saw this last night as I perused House Beautiful! Such a fabulous home...showing that a smaller home can be every bit as fabulous as something large.

Hope you had a wonderful 4th!!
