SCHUMACHER




Yesterday I was over at ADAC because I was dying to see Mary McDonald's new collection for Schumacher.  In person so I could touch everything and groan just a little.

Mary....Mary...Mary....why you gotta be so good.  I am in love with this collection and it is safe to say that my girl crush with MM is full on.

I love her on MDD....she is my kind of girl.....funny as hell.


And dang pretty.  Some people have it all.

Looking up her bio to see what I could find out about this talent  I discovered that she got her start in the design field as a milliner  crafting elegant hats displayed in Vogue, Bazaar and Vanity Fair.  

Who knew?  Hats.  Boom.

But back to her collection.  It is stunning....hold on to your seats.
  These appliqué's are gorgeous!  And guess what....Mary wanted to make it easy for us so they are iron on! 


 Look at these gorgeous colors....the soft blush is killing me.

 I took these at the showroom.  Run these puppies down the leading edge of your drapes. Yes sir.  Do it.

 Um....hello pretty fabric.

 I took this in the showroom also....



 This is the prettiest pale pink....

  How perfectly stunning are the appliqué's  on these pillows....and yes....they are sitting on her rug collection!

 OK...so these are panels.  You can frame them...upholster a wall with them....or use as curtains.  OR....just ball one up at night and sleep with it.

 Here are the styles of the appliqué's.  Kill me now.


 I literally had to touch this fabric....it looks so real.

 Navy and white.  No one likes this right?

 How about you cut that puppy in half and gussy up the corner of your chair?

 Mary your killing me....orange and taupe.  I. Could. Die.


I am not sure you can feel my enthusiasm for this collection....what do I need to do to prove it to you???

lovelovelovelovelovelovelovelove.

Convinced?
 Here is a widdle piddow I drooled all over.

Go Mary with your bad self....give us some black and white geometric.  No one will buy this.

 Now for some of the rugs....

I wonder how long I would have this in my house before one of my dogs christened it.
 
 I love how graphic they are....



Mommie.....

Help me....

Annnnnddddd  there you have it.  Ms. Mary's fearless, feminine, eclectic style all tied up in a bow for your pinning pleasure.

Thoughts?

Are you feeling it?

Tornado's in the south today.  
Take cover.

So let me get this straight, you like this collection? I couldn't quite tell from your post. I LOVE it too. Lucky you getting to touch it and drool on it.

You are not alone. I've had a girl crush on MM forever and the deal was sealed when she signed my book at market and told me she liked my jewelry. OMG! Anyway. This collection is to. die. for. I want it all. Too bad I'd have to sell a kidney to afford it. And yes, the tornado sirens had us running to our tornado room at 3:30 a.m. Fun! Thanks for sharing her collection up close and personal!

Holly said...

My two favorites were the geometric and that honeycomb fabric - I thought those were great. Great job Mary!

The Pink Pagoda said...

I'm so convinced. Absolutely love every bit of it! MM is amazing!

Kathysue said...

Omgosh!! I have been seeing her new collection around blog land and loved it, but seeing the actual samples on your post today has me drooling, especially the appliques, the trim and that one Green lumbar pillow, want, Need!!I am thinking that would work in my family room re-do as one of the green elements. Notice I am like a dog with a bone on this family room re-do!!lol
Thanks for sharing all of this Sherri, Love, Love, Love it all!!

Kathysue said...

PS I have said many times I would love to do lunch with MM, now that would be a wonderful lunch, You, MM and Me!!

PURA VIDA said...

as a person who hot glues hub's buttons back on...I can really dig the iron ons....except I might have to buy an iron...love her too!

I would gladly be the Vice President of her fan club if you are president. Mary's humor is what I love best about her! Actually there isn't one thing that I don't adore about Mary:) I will use her navy & white fabric in our familyroom , LOVE!!! Now I want to go touch all of her new fabric. Funny, I have never seen Mary wear a hat other than a baseball cap;)))

michele said...

she is a crazy lady. i remember seeing her first on that old kitty bartholomew show on hgtv. she had no budget decorating her house and made all these cheapy cool decisions (cutting a table in half and using the 2 halves for symmetry flanking a fireplace, painting her kitchen tiffany box blue...) it would appear she has an ulimited budget these days.

René said...

All very drool worthy. I do hope you were not wearing your hospital gown though. ;)

Kerry Steele- Design du Monde said...

Wow! The appliques are so fabulous. I need to wipe the drool of my keyboard.

My Notting Hill said...

Iron-on, that's awesome! The rugs are gorgeous too.

Deserae said...

Dear God.....I LOVE IT ALL! *sigh* If only I were rich! LOL....

The whole last season of Million Dollar Decorators I was transfixed on the Greek key pillows that were always in the background of her interviews. I want ALL of this!! Thanks for sharing!

Amanda said...

Oh yes!! I literally ran into my local showroom out of breath asking to see the collection. The gal there laughed and said you and everyone else! I pulled so many samples my head was spinning. But the trims are by far my favorite!! And I'm so gonna use them somewhere! Even if I have to trim my pajama bottoms with it!

Patricia said...

I agree and share your girl crush on MM.....However ! Is there anyone cuter or , may I say, sexier ( ! ) than Martyn Lawrence Bullard ???

My Crafty Home Life said...

Didn't Coco Chanel start as a milliner too? I want to have a glass of wine with her. She is so funny on that show. I just love her designs.

Victoria said...

You are right, Sherry. Her collection is beautiful. I especially love the small square ottoman. The fabric and color are perfect. No tornados here in SW Florida, just much-needed rain. Stay safe.
Best...Victoria

Normangirl said...

I love the panels! I think the orange is stunning...but wondering whether you got to look at the blush and whether they are as outstanding at the orange???

sarah @ the modern lifestyle said...

this, my friend, is why i'm not a designer. I would have absolutely no self-control when such awesomeness as this fell upon my eyes. with 24/7 access, i'd constantly be redoing everything in my home! no, i'm much better off living vicariously through you...

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

Taylor Greenwalt said...
