An Art Collection Leads to a Huntsville Home Full of Layered Harmony

Art and music course through the veins of Ginney and Foster McDonald’s historic Huntsville home. Paintings by contemporary masters like Nall, Mark Singer, and Steve Penley accompany antiques from London and pieces crafted by local artisans, a concordant blend of high and low that illustrates the family’s distinctive taste.

“If it speaks to us, we will find a place to hang it,” says Ginney, who has turned to designer Beverly Farrington of Accents of the South time and again for various projects since the family moved in more than 15 years ago.
