MARY DOUGLAS DRYSDALE

MARY ...

The  signature  style  of  Mary  Douglas  Drysdale  is  consistently  recognized  as  both  original  and  timeless,  seamlessly  bridging  tradition  with  modern.  From  farmhouse  to  townhouse  she  provides  architectural  and  decorative  solutions  crafted  for  the  individual  but  appropriate  to  the  project  type.  

The  projects  she  undertakes  carefully  reflect  her  education,  abilities,  and  interests:  interior  planning,  detailing  and  decoration.  Though  often  referred  to  as  an"American  Design  icon",  Mary's  personal  style  is  relaxed  and  open;  she  is  totally  at  home  on  a  construction  site,  installing  art  or  overseeing  the  decorative  painting.  Unpretentious  and 

 comfortably  casual  with  clients  and  contractors,  her  work  is  taut,  thoughtfully  developed,  and  memorable.  

Her  career  and  project  work  have  consistently  been  honored  by  the  design  industry.  Mary  Douglas  Drysdale's  projects  have  garnered  over  70  career  covers  both  in  the  US  and  abroad.  In  2018  she  is  a  Style  Spotter  at  High  Point  Market,  In  2017  Drysdale  was  voted,  by  her  peers,  into  the  Interior  Design  Hall  of  Fame.  She  has  won  5  NKBA  1st  place  awards  in  the  area  of  kitchen  and  bath.  She  was  voted  a  top  5  Design  Influencer  in  an  Industry  wide  poll  in  2017.  In  2016  Drysdale  was  awarded  the  First  High  Point  Elevate  award,  named  top  Interior  Designer,  in  the  category  of  Traditional  Design.  Drysdale  was  named  a  worldwide,  top  100  designer,  in  The  Andrew  Martin  Competition  of  2014.  Drysdale  was  named  5  years  running  as  one  of  House  Beautiful's  Top  100  and  was  selected  in  2011  as  one  of  the  members  of  House  Beautiful's  Family  Tree  of  American  Design.  In  2001  Drysdale  was  selected  by  Architecture  and  Interiors  magazines  as  one  of  America's  top  200  practicing  architects  and  designers.  Traditional  Home  magazine  honored  Mary's  work  with  an  award  for  "Innovation  in  the  Traditional  Style".  This  Old  House  magazine  selected  Drysdale  in  2005  as  one  of  the  top  10  design  professionals  working  on  old  homes  in  America.  In  2009  she  was  nominated  for  the  Cooper  Hewitt  Design  Museum  Interior  Design  Award  for  achievement  in  the  field  of  Interior  Design.  

Viewed  in  its  totality,  the  consistent  recognition  of  her  project  work  is  a  clear  reflection  of  her  commitment  to  the  quality  and  successful  outcome  of  any  project  she  undertakes  and  to  the  practice  of  interior  design  at  a  high  level.
