Mary Douglas Drysdale

How refreshing to see Mary Douglas Drysdale's work again.  It's been a while since I have seen her work and it is as fresh, crisp and unique as ever.  You have only to look at the images below to see what I mean.  

Her attention to detail has always been exquisite.  This particular Capitol Hill home was a complete makeover and it has Mary Douglas Drysdale written all over it.

She has seamlessly combined classic details with modern accessories and has boldly mixed her colors so they, too, have become seamless.  Her blue and white touches are perfect, while the citrus green brings the whole look to life.

I love the green secretary she designed, as well as the blue cabinet in the kitchen.  They are both standouts.

To see more of this wonderful home, check out the current issue of Traditional Home magazine.  It's one of the most delightful issues I have seen in ages and is chock full of other great homes and ideas.  


Love this combination of greens - walls, fruit,
floral greenery and trim on shades

Subtle touch of blue with the green

Classic and modern mix of colors
