Delightful Article on Bunny Williams

The main residence on the grounds was built in 1840 and is the subject of Williams’s best-selling "An Affair with a House".

One of the world’s most respected interior designers has spent her career teaching folks that style doesn’t trump comfort—and that there should always be room for the dogs.

Ahh Bunny, you were one of a kind. She loved Upperville and so do I.

Some years ago, a dear and overly generous friend and her mother, splurged and purchased this insanely wonderful book for my birthday, knowing my love for Bunny Williams beautiful style and talent. I have spent uncounted hours pouring over the pages of her rooms, and each time find new and delightful discoveries. Her rooms are stories of the life of Ms Williams and her home if you sit and study each page. I never grow tired of looking and looking.

Rosemary, are you familiar with the Furlow Gatewood book? Do you have a copy? I was gobsmacked late last year when I was able to acquire a new copy at an estate sale for the princely sum of $2. Was just beside myself! It is a gorgeous book and I love everything in it. The Gatewood homes are in the Albany, GA area, which was the area incurring so much damage from tornadoes yesterday. Would hate to think he suffered any extensive damage. Would be nice to think of being able to tour his homes someday.

JudyMac -- Judy, I do not have that book but I must have seen all of the photos within at one time or another on Pinterest. I do hope none of the Furlow Gatewood houses tornado suffered any tornado damage. We are having fierce winds and rain but so far, so good.
You are finding wonderful things at estate sales. It's the only way to shop and such fun.

Rosemary.....Unless you live in Utah, the thrifts and estate sales are well, pretty much terrible and a waste of time.
