Mary McDonald book signing "Interiors" + Calypso St Barth

Thursday, November 17, 2011

Calypso St. Barth hosted an elegant evening with Interior Designer Mary McDonald last week, for a signing of her gorgeous book Interiors. I was lucky enough to cover the event, meet her myself, and be in on all of the fun!
If you haven't seen her on the hit Bravo TV show "Million Dollar Decorators" you really must. She truly is that striking and charming in person.

There was enough music and bubbly to go around, and the circling of eager guests, just waiting to get an autograph from the woman of the hour, was definitely a sight to behold! You should do yourself a favor and take an afternoon to savor this book. You'll be transported into loveliness.
Speaking of loveliness, did I mention the backdrop was that of the breathtaking beauty of Calypso St Barth in Brentwood, CA?  
Take one peek, online (here!) or in one of the stores, and you're bound to fall in love.
Some gorgeous taste-makers and fashionable elite stopped by to support and do some shopping.
Including some friendly new faces from another recent and fabulous event. (Did you see the Hip'tique + Black Halo coverage here?)
I must admit, the night was a little more fun for me, just having a reason to swish around in this dress! The Calypso Lola Paillatte dress is a perfect party frock! (Find it here!)
