A TRIBUTE- Bunny Mellon

the great bunny mellon passed away recently. this month’s architectural digest pays tribute to bunny by featuring photographs from several of her homes and gardens.

bunny had great style, she possessed something rare and very admirable- restraint. i often think who are the young ladies today that will emerge and be the tastemakers and style setters of my generation… i so want great style and great substance to live on…we need to have greats to look up to- thank you bunny for showing us that it can be done!
