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!
