Touted as being the inspiration behind the character of "Karen", on Will and Grace, Mary McDonald is both hilarious and insanely talented, all wrapped up in a petite little package of gorgeousness.
Her design work is seen in some of the most affluent homes and businesses, so it is with great excitement that I am writing today about the affordable lamp line that she has launched in collaboration with Robert Abbey, Inc. Sometimes it is just one simple, beautiful piece of furniture or accessory that can completely transform a dull room, and any one of the lamps from her recent collection could add that extra special touch to a home.
Not familiar with Mary's work? Here are a few examples of why I am such a fan of her style:

Isn't that beautiful? With the launch of her latest book, The Allure of Style, you can get some great inspiration for adding some elegance to your own home.
As for her lamps, they vary from the range of "Classic Glamour" to "Whimsical" giving you an option for whatever your taste leans toward.
