Bunny Williams: Soft-Spoken Drama
Remember this amazing Pieter Estersohn photo of Bunny Williams' bedroom from Elle Decor? The mirrored bed is 1930s; the embroidered headboard is Indian. If you appreciate Indian embroidery, you may enjoy visiting the Calico Museum of Textiles.
Above is a photo, by Fritz von der Schulenberg, of the island home Bunny Williams shares with antique dealer husband, John Rosselli (as seen in Town & Country). This view will apparently be used for the cover of Williams' upcoming book, as reported by Bibliostyle. (See below.)
Stewart, Tabori and Chang is scheduled to release Bunny Williams' Point of View: Three Decades of Decorating Elegant and Comfortable Houses in October. I think the book's cover is especially strong; that white mirror flanked by symmetrical framed panels, and the striped floor, have a sort of soft-spoken graphic impact. (Love the white ceramic elephant too.)
Update: Cote de Texas also recently mentioned that Williams' island house will be seen on the new book cover. I just caught this and wanted to give her a little shout-out.
More design connections: Jennifer, a.k.a. Bibliostyle, and The Peak of Chic, notes that Miles Redd selected for himself a mirrored bed very similar to that of his former boss, Bunny Williams. Photo below by Paul Costello for House & Garden, January 2005.
