The show runs March 7th with a Kick Off Preview Party tonight through March 10th. Proceeds benefit three Alexandria, VA community groups: Twig (supporting the local Alexandria Inova Hospital / my volunteer group), The Lyceum (supporting Alexandria’s History Museum) and the Alexandria Association (dedicated to preservation of historic structures and promotion of the decorative arts).
The inspiration for this post is a new collection for Casart coverings – Mary Douglas Drysdale Signature Colors.
I typically don’t do double posts but this is big news for my company and exciting news for interior design. I’ll just make this one quick, however, due to several initiatives this week that have sucked all the time away. You can learn more about this truly talented and celebrated interior designer via her newly launched website at www.drysdaleinc.com.
Signature Colors by designer Mary Douglas Drysdale. One of the most published designers in America and known as an innovator in the traditional style. Classical design, with the clean sensibility of modern thinking. Mary Douglas Drysdale is known for her highly decorative use of color. In this category she stands alone. The vividness of her color sense and her confidant use of it, have made her name and the brilliant use of “chroma” synonymous. Casart Coverings and Mary Douglas Drysdale have worked to offer to the market a line of 10 of Mary’s favorite colors; her Signature Colors. Only available through Casart Coverings, we offer the Drysdale color vision in two finishes, in our repositionable, removable and reusable wallcoverings.
Described as an “American Icon,” Casart coverings is pleased to be in partnership in offering Mary Douglas Drysdales, Signature Colors: Jefferson Yellow, Tuscany, Oushak Orange, Lipstick Plus, Early Spring, Federal Green, French Blue, Innocence, Whispers of Iris and Folly Gray.
