Designing Women: Lauren McGrath ’07 and Mother Co-author ‘Good Bones, Great Pieces’ Archives



In honor of Mother’s Day, a multitasking Bowdoin Daily Sun post for you, as it at once highlights a beautiful mother-daughter effort while providing the procrastinators among you a gift idea.

Lauren McGrath ’07 and her mother, Suzanne Grua McGrath, who earned five Emmys over her decade-long career as style editor and producer at Martha Stewart Living Television, are the design duo behind the new book Good Bones, Great Pieces: The Seven Essential Pieces To Carry You Through a Lifetime (Abrams, May 1, 2012) and the blog by the same name.

Lauren is the niece of Peter Grua and Mary O’Connell, both members of the Class of 1976.
