Living and growing up in Los Angeles my entire life has left me a bit jaded to the Hollywood crowd. Don’t get me wrong, it’s still a rush when working with celebrity “types”, but in this town everyone is a celebrity type! It’s always enchanting when meeting and working with someone you’ve admired and they surpass your expectations.
This last week while attending the conference for Design Bloggers, I met one of my all time favorite designers, Bunny Williams. Before there was Facebook, blogging, Pinterest, tweeting and the overnight sensational designers out of no where, there is still the breed of Interior Designer that learned their craft from hard work, great mentors, and hands on design aesthetic that evolves with time and experience. Her early career was a dream job working for Sister Parish and Albert Hadley as an apprentice which defines her comfortable and stylish look of her Beeline Home Furnishings today.
I was fortunate enough to chat with Bunny for a while about work, her husband John Rosselli, (a rockstar in his own right!) her staff and how she’s able to manage it all. Spending weekends at her country house entertaining friends and her love of gardening is the balance she advised to keep sane in our busy work lives where a client can still fire you over a lamp shade! I share her love of gardening and appreciate the advice.
Bunny was the woman of the evening at the Kravet/TradHome reception at Harbinger and was swept away for photos and conversation. She is a Designer Rockstar and I was thrilled to meet her.
