Fall Market

I did my internship with Bunny Williams and have a deep respect for her amazing talents. I also fancy Miles Redd's interiors. Yesterday I was happy to attend two Fall Market events at the D & D that would have me seeing both gurus!  

Vaughan (to the trade) hosted a lecture and book signing for Bunny Williams' new book, Scrapbook for Living!  This book is loaded with Bunny's tips on how to make a house a home. Who doesn't want tips from one of the world's best? 

Hamptontoes & Bunny Williams
Scrapbook for Living would make a fabulous holiday gift!

Lee Jofa (to the trade) hosted the talented Miles Redd who not only has a thriving interior design business (http://www.milesredd.com/), but has also been Creative Director of Home for Oscar de la Renta since 2003. Oscar has launched a textile line with Lee Jofa and wow, there are some wonderful offerings!
Miles Redd (who too, spent time with Bunny Williams, Inc.) & Hamptontoes
Here are a few samples from Oscar's new collection, shown in the various colorways.
 The Lee Jofa room Miles designed Oscar's textiles. There is a richness to this room.
Check out Bunny's new book and Oscar's new textile line!

I love hearing about your time with Bunny and seeing the two of you together! What an amazing experience you must have had. I am also insanely crazy for the green room Miles did. I love the color, especially as we think about heading into winter white New England. I would love to see a country house done with walls that color just to see if I could imagine using it myself. Let me know if you see any!

Love that you took advantage of a great day at the D&D and met two top designers. Both Bunny and Miles have their own point of view and voice and both have fabulous taste!
P.S. And you look fabulous next to them!

As if you needed another reason to look and sound fabulous, here's another! That's really cool. I've loved both of those designers work since the moment they entered my radar!

I feel the need to paint something green now...

Debby said...

You are a lucky girl! Of course, you look stunning, as always! I am loving the green in those rooms. I am so bummed because I had the Nate show scheduled on my dvr and my son deleted it by accident before I could watch it. Ugh! xo

splendid market said...

My, what an incredible weekend! I do need to get Bunny's book, thank you for the information. I love the Oscar fabrics.

Come by the market to see the recipe for my favorite October confection -- chocolate covered tarantulas. Crunchy, chewy, sweet and salty -- splendidly spooky!
