Did you see the Wall Street Journal’s Off Duty section over the weekend? There was a great “20 Odd Questions” piece with design icon, Bunny Williams. Ever since she arrived on my radar, I have admired her common sense in so many things – her decorating, her outlook on life, and the way she deals with her many rescued dogs.
Bunny says that the dog always knows where the coziest place in the house is, and I can certainly agree after Connor took over the most comfortable chair for the past two years. She says that she has faux fur rugs for her dogs, and I know that was always Connor’s favourite place in the winter.
While everyone is mourning the closing of Bunny Williams’ iconic shop in New York, Treillage, she has opened a showroom in the Fine Arts Building in Manhattan to showcase her designs. She joins other design and decorating firms including Bennison and Chelsea Textiles.
Bunny talks about hating the colours mauve and teal, and acres of dry-wall walls. She likes texture on the walls. Nothing to disagree with there!
As part of the article, there’s also a brief video of Bunny talking about her likes and what interests her. Antique urns are a big thing – in more ways than one! There is nothing better than a chippy old cast iron urn.
