Indian inspired decorative elements can add that perfect touch of the exotic to any interior. Take for instance this “Furlow Indian Bone Bed” from John Rosselli- with its grand scale and elegant lines, it would absolutely MAKE a bedroom – and what a dreamy place to escape from the hustle bustle of our frenetic city life! I’ve often drawn upon the East for inspiration in my design work and find the style integrates well with most interiors.
Though I did get lots of looks on the city streets, my embroidered cotton voile kurta is a godsend in this India-like New York city summer sun – it’s easy to understand why this cooling design has remained essentially unchanged for thousands of years! White skinny jeans are by Diesel, Gucci sunglasses and flip flops are woven fabric and leather.
On several occasions I’ve been commissioned to create country and beach house interiors for clients who want a more high style traditional aesthetic, and I’ve more than once relied on this fabulous “garden table” by John Rosselli to help achieve the desired effect. I love its sculptural pedestal base and whimsical faux marble top. It is perfect for a smaller scale dining room and seats six quite comfortably. The one featured here is finished in an elegantly simple white wash, and looks perfectly crisp against these lovely melon colored walls. I’m quite inspired to create a similar room for a client’s Palm Beach cottage – now that would be impossibly fresh and delicious!
I’m wearing a royal blue cotton linen sateen jacket by Gucci, Charvet Paris pale blue silk retro print pocket square, a blue micro strip sea island cotton shirt by Gucci, Seaman Schepps silver pearl and pale blue sapphire cufflinks, shocking pink jean cut pants by Dior, silver chain link belt, white leather loafers, white leather bag and glasses all by Gucci.
Seeing a need for quality interior pieces with personality, comfort, and utility, at a competitive price point, the iconic decorator Bunny Williams has launched her first line of furniture and accessories. Thirty years in the making, the pieces in Bee Line Home are derived from designs Bunny has carefully collected throughout her distinguished career. In tightly controlled production runs, each object is in a limited and numbered edition ensuring these pieces will remain fresh and coveted for years to come.
Some of my favorite pieces shown here are the “Hourglass” table with its gilt octagonal base and marble top, the turquoise glazed lamp with its temple jar shape and gilt lotus pattern base, the “Eglomise” coffee table with gilt iron base and reverse painted glass top with a fortuny inspired print on a sea green ground , the “T42″ chair and ottoman and the “Naughty Miss Bunny” throw in a luxurious faux rabbit fur, (which will be perfect for my beloved hounds, Rupert and Nigel to nest on!).
I can’t wait to place many pieces from this fabulous collection on upcoming projects. Thank you Bunny for putting together such a brilliant collection and making it a bit easier for all of us to find a few spectacular pieces to make our rooms stand out.
Celebrating the launch of Bunny’s collection at the uber chic John Rosselli showroom, I am wearing a white perforated leather jacket with black and saddle trim by Gucci, Tom Ford shirt in black and white cotton stripes with French cuffs, Seaman Schepps cufflinks are shell with coral beads, plum skinny jeans by Diesel, and python belt, tan leather tasseled loafers, and a black leather tote all by Gucci.
