Los Angeles based interior designer Mary McDonald created a big impact in the tiny entrance area at the 2011 Kips Bay Decorator Show House. She was inspired by Annabel's, a private members' restaurant and nightclub on Berkeley Square in London where "drama meets classical decor." The bold feminine lipstick red wallcovering plays off the masculine charcoal grey fabrics and black accents in the room. I especially love the brass mirror, light fixtures, candle sticks and console that perfectly play off all of these colors. This room made a great first impression and definitely set the tone for the rest of the house.
