Interior designer
Donna McAlear takes
fireplaces to a new level

Great interior designers know a fireplace offers benefits reaching far beyond supplemental heat – it’s a dramatic focal point that brings elegance, style and ambiance to a space. When Donna Grace McAlear of New Mood Design in Atlanta set out to design an upscale vacation home for a client in Breckenridge, Colorado, the award-winning designer knew exactly the type of fireplace was required to elevate the project.
With a unique combination of influences, Donna Grace McAlear is not your average interior designer. Having spent two decades as a museum curator designing and presenting fine art exhibitions, she has an exacting ability to seamlessly and authentically define interior architectural environments. This experience, combined with a highly developed aesthetic, gives McAlear a unique breadth of knowledge to create interiors that harmonize spatially and visually within architectural settings.
