She’s often referred to as one of the top decorators in the classical tradition, for good reason: nobody does it better. Bunny Williams is a designer with a modern vision, a sense of history, and the confidence to take the unexpected path. Both a trailblazer and a tastemaker, Williams’ style is classic, but never predictable.
A decorating-world doyenne with a bohemian streak, Bunny Williams conceives richly detailed rooms where antiques are presented with a distinctly contemporary attitude.
The New York City–based tastemaker, who refined her synthesizing talents in aristo-American decorating as well as a garden-design aficionado. For her, it’s all about classic comfort, an informed eye, and a bit of fun. In her rooms, fine European antiques meet mirrored walls and gutsy artwork. She uses intense colors and delicate patterns with equal panache.
“I want to create inviting spaces filled with beautiful furniture and art from all times and places, from grand to simple,” says Williams, who has extensive home decor lines and who oversees, with her husband, antiques dealer John Rosselli, the admired Manhattan shop Treillage.
Her most recent book is Bunny Williams’ Point of View (Stewart, Tabori and Chang, 2007). Covet Lounge will take you on a journey inside the Design world! Please don’t forget to subscribe and follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
