Love Affairs with Houses
In this story-filled monograph, Bunny Williams presents new work through 15 houses she has decorated and loved. She tells the tale of each "affair," tracing the style of the spaces, what drew her to the projects, and her approach to decor that evolves with the lives of her clients. She offers personal secrets for choosing classics-and for decorating with flexible pieces that can play more than one role in a design scheme. Along the way, she offers many amazingly chic, but always comfortable, residences whose interiors she has designed during the latest phase of her astounding career. As Bunny tells it, "The best pieces have the best stories," and in this book, she shows readers a fresh collection of projects that demonstrate just that.
