We've met Mary McDonald, but now it's time
to admire the work of my absolute
favorite designer on Million Dollar Decorators:
Jeffrey Alan Marks, a former model, a graduate
of England's Inchbald School of Design (DREAM!),
and one of the design all-stars on House Beautiful's
Most Influential Decorators in American History list.
I love Mary's bold use of color from a design
standpoint, but Jeffrey's subdued palate and
rustic chic aesthetic is more in line with
my personal taste. Plus, he has the cutest English
lab you could ever imagine. She will make a cameo
below, don't you worry.

There she is! Hi, Chessie!
I especially love Jeffrey's commercial work,
particularly the restaurants he's designed.
My secret career wish: to design restaurants and stores.
Ssh, don't tell my medical school interviewers!
