Sometimes the universe works in mysterious ways…I had planned today’s post as a surprise for my sister Karen (she adores Bunny Williams!)…she and her husband Jim were scheduled to fly in this afternoon for a much anticipated holiday visit but because of the fierce snow storm, hundreds of flights up and down the east coast have been cancelled…so for now, today’s post will be my link to her and the connection we share for all things beautiful…somehow, despite our disappointment this morning, we unearthed a wonderful discovery ~ Karen was at the 1998 Kips Bay showhouse! This masterful interior is the reason she fell in love with Bunny Williams! How strange that of all the interiors to post about, I would choose this one! I am so grateful for this incredible connection and will cherish this post always…
I hope you enjoy the detail and beauty of this space as much as Karen and I do ~ sophisticated, elegant, refined and timeless…a masterpiece
In 1988, after twenty-two years with the prestigious design firm Parish-Hadley, Bunny Williams opened her own interior design company, Bunny Williams Incorporated. Her meticulous attention to detail, restraint and appropriateness are just a few reasons why she is considered one of the greatest interior designers of our time. In addition to her highly successful company she has published four books, created her own home furnishings line ~ Beeline Home ~ based on beloved pieces from her own collection, and co-owns Treillage Ltd., a garden furniture and ornament shop in New York, with her husband and famed antiques dealer John Rosselli. You might also be pleased to know that Bunny Williams has a blog called “Bunny’s Buzz“, a behind the scenes look at her life and career! I highly recommend adding it to your daily reads, in fact right now she has some lovely photos of her country home dressed up for the holidays!
“Objects, patterns, textures and colors, beautifully balanced, have an appealing undisciplined look ~ the direct result of great focus and meticulous planning.”
above, I am so taken with this desk…what a masterful composition of elements ~ the whimsical chair, magnificent horns and eclectic mix of art…genius!
