Design Studio Tour: Margaret Donaldson Interiors Expands
We’ve put the finishing touches on our newly renovated and expanded design studio and we couldn’t be happier. Our studio is our home away from home. It’s where we develop relationships, create, dream, and get inspired. This larger space gives us plenty of room to spread out vision boards, meet with clients, and display one-of-a-kind treasures and favorite accessories. (Stay tuned for a post on our current favorite accessories!)
Favorite Interior Design Coffee Table Books
Art and design coffee table books are such a wonderful indulgences, not to mention providing creative inspiration. If you’re looking for the perfect gift for an art or design lover, here are a few of our favorite new releases:
Bedroom Furniture- Beds
Bedroom furniture is not what it used to be. The image above is a perfect example! Gone are the days of the matching suite that included bed, bedside tables and dresser. Interior designers now bring the high style and blending of furniture to the bedroom. To get you thinking outside the traditional 4 walled bedroom, take a look at these beds. They are about as far from boring bedroom furniture as you can get!
Last Round of Charleston Interior Design in Atlanta!
Here we go! Final round of Atlanta finds. Charleston Interior Design is as global as a plane ride or a car trip or the internet for that matter. While we love and cherish our local resources, we strive for an awareness of all that is out there. This philosophy allows us to bring truly the best and most unique selections into the MDI studio and then into our clients’ homes. A lot of what we enjoyed were creative takes on wall decor.
Charleston Designers, Atlanta Market – Part 2
Well, I guess it’s a good sign that it has taken a couple of weeks to get through all of our images. Lots of great new design inspiration has hit our idea boards here at MDI. So…we are just going to inundate you with the goodness. Let’s visit ADAC today. Charleston Designers often travel to ADAC or NYC to see new product.
Charleston Designers, Atlanta Markets

Be on the lookout for the new project to appear on the blog soon. MDI doesn’t just go to High Point in the fall and spring; MDI also tries to make to Atlanta every year or so.
Commercial Design, The Healthy Office
Designing an office where your employees can be productive and stimulated with good opportunities for reprieve…wouldn’t all employers love to maximize these principals. We found some exciting and innovative solutions. Take a look. Do you think this would help increase your productivity? Your state of mind? Your energy at work?
Commercial Design: A Living Wall
You may recall that we mentioned the living wall from our hotel in Chicago. We were truly captured by the feature. The green aesthetic emanates through the space. It encourages people to stop and interact. It divides spaces.
