The success of any room and the ultimate experience of any interior cannot be separated from the architecture against which the decoration is viewed.

The detail, shape, proportion and finish of every space inform and compliment the elements of design which are not part of the built environment, such as furniture, rugs, art and artifact.

The work of Mary Douglas Drysdale is strongly connected to her remarkable talent with respect to the planning and detailing of interior architecture. She is recognized for her knowledge of correct architectural detail, and her interiors balance the articulation provided by a skilled detailer’s hand, with the confidence of an inventive decorative talent.
