“Most people use the back entry more than the front door, so it needs to be beautiful, as well as practical.”-Bunny Williams

Flower Cutting Room

“A place to pot plants and arrange flowers is a necessity for me because they give life to a room. But this space also serves as a laundry, and if you don’t garden, you can always bathe your dogs in the sink.”

“The beautiful pewter countertops from Francois & Co. wear well, and I love the lacquered blue cabinetry.”

West Gallery

“The tapestry wallpaper I designed for Lee Jofa instantly gives the feeling of walking into a garden.” Bunny also recommends a mix of antiques and newer pieces. “Something old, something new, and different textures make a room more interesting.”

Concentric circles in Bunny’s chandelier for Currey & Company reiterate the form of the rose window. The faux bois demilune and gold mirror are from her collection for Ballard Designs.

Powder Room

With space at a premium in the powder room, the designer floated a serpentine vanity in the corner and carried through the progression of blues in a smaller-scaled pattern from Thibaut.

Back Porch

“On the back porch, we hung a mirror so either coming or going, you can see how you look. Everybody looks in the mirror when they come in or out of the house.” The round form of the mirror they selected from Ballard Designs echoes the round window in the gallery.

FLORAL SPOTLIGHT

The arrangement atop Bunny’s faux bois demilune table is a showstopper. Michal Evans Flora & Event Design filled a large, footed cachepot with ‘Red Charm’ peonies, lysimachia, ‘Tropical Punch’ vanda orchids, paprika yarrow, ‘Pink Xpression’ garden roses, ‘Shimmer’ roses, and ‘Ilse’ spray roses.
