Mary Tyler Moore’s needlepoint

by Helene Brown

The warm, glowing living room you see here reflects the very personal decorating statement of TV’s Mary Tyler Moore.

Mary succumbed to the needlepoint vogue awhile ago, finding it a soothing and productive way to pass the time on set between scenes. Three years and 23 glorious needlepoint creations later, when Mary and her husband, Grant Tinker, had finished remodeling their home in Malibu, California, her appealing handiwork became the focus of their decorating. Working with interior designer John Hall, they picked their colors accordingly.

Now, with flower-garden hues and greenery everywhere, the house carries out the look of Mary’s unique needlepoint — fresh, bright and casual.
