A Charleston home and the next generation of performance fabric is a match made in heaven. You might remember the earlier versions of ultra-durable fabrics: Scratchy, stiff, and not at all nice to touch. However, they were a necessary evil in industrial office spaces, hospitals, and beach rentals. Lucky for us Lowcountry dwellers, things have drastically changed. Read More
With a new season comes the urge to refresh interior spaces to match. In winter, we bring warmth to chilly Charleston days with plenty of layers and soft, nubby textiles. In summer, we want summer textiles that are light, bright, fun, and crisp.
You can refresh your space for summer, or for an entire next chapter, with a creative summer textile makeover.
Crisp, sophisticated whites, grays, and indigos have dominated interior design trends in the last few years. While these combinations never go out of style, warm colors are making their way into Charleston interiors. Driven by the popularity of blush pinks and rose gold, we’re seeing the addition of toasty mustards, deeper shades of rose, terra cotta, rust, and even salmon (a perennial Charleston favorite).Read More
Behind the best interior designers in Charleston are the best dog helpers. At Margaret Donaldson Interiors, we love our dogs (and our clients’ dogs) so much that we have a dog-friendly studio. Of course you’ve met Margaret’s now famous furry-friend, Abby, and recently we wrote about Alex’s Labradoodle, Willow. There’s another important member of the team to introduce – please meet Rosie.
It’s no secret that Margaret Donaldson Interiors loves dogs. Did you know that more than half the households in Charleston, SC have at least one dog? It’s just one more thing that makes our city the best. Since her Houzz feature, Abby has been hogging the attention around the office, so we thought we’d introduce you to another of our fuzzy mascots, Willow.
The “Sip & See” is MDI tradition. When one of our designers finishes a project, we cater a wine and cheese open house so the rest of our team can see the finished home and celebrate with the homeowners. It also allows Elizabeth, our accounting and business manager to get out of the office for once!
Hi, it’s Abby, Margaret’s Golden Retriever and unofficial mascot at MDI. Sometimes when the team is out with a client, I help with the blog. I know, I know…dogs can’t type. I hear that a lot from our readers. Obviously I can’t type, but there’s nothing stopping me from using dictation software. Hello? I’m a problem solver.Read More
MDI’s Beth Black had a great time hanging out at Charleston Fashion Week this year. Held every spring in Marion Square, Charleston Fashion week showcases emerging designers as well as nationally recognized designers. Runway events and parties are glamorous – Charleston style.Read More
The MDI Team recently finished a fun project at the Rhodes Boutique in West Ashley. The boutique is located in the South Windermere shopping center. Clients love it because it’s close to downtown and has plenty of free (!!!!) parking. The owner, Caroline Rhodes, buys what she loves and what she knows her customers will love.Read More
