about eight or so years ago michael and i bought a small weekend house in healdsburg, california, in sonoma. the house was like a cottage, it had an amazing yard and pool, we wanted to make something special of it. a great source of inspiration was bunny williams book, point of view/ buy here….one of my favorite books of all time.

we wanted the house to feel light and airy, comfortable and relaxed- seagrass, linen, teak, batik’s, wicker, and lacquer became our simple formula, with asian, chinoiserie and bamboo antiques, and of course lots of blue and white mixed in. bunny’s classic, elegant and thoughtful work inspired and still does… i keep coming back to this book, these interiors, this sensibility time and time again, i guess because it’s not only timeless, also because it’s pretty!

thank you bunny once again for your ‘point of view.’
