MCHUCLA: Georgian House 1 - Mary McDonald, Martyn Lawrence Bullard

Here is another of the 10 custom dollhouses featured in the Designer Dollhouse Showcase at the Kaleidocsope Ball that helped to raise almost $1.8 million for UCLA Mattel Children's Discovery and Innovation Institute. This is the Georgian House 1 by Mary McDonald and Martyn Lawrence Bullard. Click on the images to enlarge.

Mary McDonald designed the 1st floor and exterior to include a dining room of pale pinks, grays, and chalky whites from the F. Schumacher fabris collection shown on wall curtains. The living room combines Jade Greens from F.Schumacher Chinois Palais and Don't Fret fabrics from Mary McDonald’s new collection all paired with hints of Black or white in a more formal yet modern way. Finally the entry combines black, green, and white in a a more graphically bold way showcasing the Jade green Chinois Palais Schumacher fabric as paper. Signature formal millwork was used in the living and dining rooms for authenticity, while the floor is all real oak planks scaled accordingly as a life size house with natural patina and movement found in original English Georgian houses. Graphic Bold painted wood floors, chinoiserie references paired with carefully edited mini empire, and Georgian and 18th C. Style furniture help to complete the look. Credits go to Schumacher, Bespoke Furniture, Carson Mazaros and Jed Voltz- for their contributions to the design.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard designed the top floor to include a master bedroom, a guest room, and an upstairs landing. The top floor is done in black and white with a strategic pop of color in each room and features Martyn’s new Schumacher collection of wall coverings on the walls in each room.

I love the wallpapers and prints for floor coverings, and the grand staircase is to die for, simply stunning. Below are more exterior and zoomed out shots.
