KOKET Designer Spotlight: Kimberly McDonald
You know those fabulous natural stone jewelry pieces you see dangling off the hottest celebrities? Chances are they are adorned with a signature Kimberly McDonald piece. Her tantalizing designs are the definition of natural luxury, mixing raw semi-precious stones with glittering diamonds and precious metals.
Her talent began as a curator for private fine jewelry collections, where she had access to a large selection of gems and stones. From there she started dabbling in the art of jewelry making, being drawn to the raw organic beauty of the semi-precious stones like agate and geodes. Thus in 2007, Kimberly McDonald jewelry was born!
Like KOKET’s bespoke furniture, each of McDonald’s jewelry pieces are unique, with no two stones looking alike. Her pieces are as one-of-a-kind as her clients, which range from Halle Berry to Amber Heard to the First Lady Michelle Obama (just to name a few).
Beside dressing the stars in chic designs, McDonald recently collaborated with Jamie Adler of Circa Wallcoverings to create a mesmerizing collection of natural metallic patterns reminiscent of McDonald’s jewelry designs. A year in the making, McDonald and Adler collaborated on five fluid patterns Glam Rock, Rock On, Stone Temple, Floating Geodes and Fin.
“I’m very proud of this collaboration with Jamie and Circa Wallcovering. I had been planning to carry my fine jewelry aesthetic which is the juxtaposition between the rough and organic and the refined and glamorous to other areas such as wallpaper, home decor and fabrics and this partnership presented the perfect opportunity to do just that. The entire process was fun and exciting I have the utmost respect for Jamie’s insight and expertise and for the rich history of Phyllis Morris in the interior design industry,” says McDonald.
This year at the famed Maison & Objet Paris, KOKET used the Natural Lace Agate Rock On wallcovering on a luxe bohemian window display for COVET Lounge. Paired with the Vivre 2 Ring chandelier and sconces, the Stella mirror, Enchanted side table and our new cozy Cocktail chair, Circa’s wallcoverings add a bold, opulent statement to any wall.
KOKET is thrilled to offer Circa’s decadent wallcoverings, including three of McDonalds patterns, as a part of our Exotic Opulence Collection. Paired with our tempting Guilty Pleasures, your home will become the ultimate desire.
With a jewelry and home collection under her belt, we anticipate Kimberly McDonald’s next venture to carry out her signature organic luxe style.
