i love part 2 of the MDS Interviews because i get to find out more about the people that inspire me- we get to find out their favorite people, places and things! however, before we get to bunny williams‘ favorites i want to share a few more of mine!

so it’s clear bunny is one of my favorite designer’s, actually, one of my favorite people. she also has a furniture line called beeline home- an absolute favorite! if you’re not familiar with it you need to be! the chicest collection of tables, case goods, chairs, sofas, lamps, mirrors and accessories. i love every piece and i use them all the time in my design projects. i think i’m beeline homes biggest fan! great products at a great value and oh so chic!

then there is bunny and john’s store Treillage, actually two stores in nyc. the lexington ave. store, which i devoured yesterday, is full of beautiful tabletop, accessories and gifts and the 75th ave. store, is the best place for hand-picked furniture and garden antiques. it’s that time of year, time for getting gifts. you must explore Triellage’s new on-line store and get some gifts- the best gifts! gifts for friends and gifts for you!

lastly, i have already mentioned bunny’s books in previous posts but let me tell you about them again. on garden style, an affair with a house, point of view and her newest, a scrapbook for living are all favorites. i have several of each and i give them all the time as gifts- treasures really!

favorites, favorites, favorites! favorite designer, favorite lamps, chairs and mirrors, favorite stores and favorite books. but enough of my favorites let’s get to bunny’s! oh and i almost forgot, she and john’s home in punta cana is hands down my favorite home- my all time favorite!

thank you bunny, thank you for being apart of MDS Interviews! the best holiday gift i will be given!
