Inviting us into her impressive grounds with charming personal anecdotes, expert advice, and creative ideas for how to bring natural elements into the home, this is a testament to Bunny Williams’ love affair with the garden and woodlands surrounding her eighteenth-century manor house in Northwestern Connecticut. A popular stop on the Garden Conservancy circuit, Williams’ property boasts a parterre garden, year-round conservatory, extensive vegetable garden, orchard, woodlands, an aviary with exotic foul, and a rustic poolside Greek Revival style folly. Each section of the garden is accompanied by a directory of featured plants from native ferns and succulents to a wide variety of flowering specimens. Stunning photographs printed on two different specialty stocks illustrate every aspect of the garden in different lights and seasons; during big parties and intimate gatherings. Throughout, the revered designer shows us how she incorporates nature in her interiors: in stunning floral arrangements, unique tablescapes, and elaborate holiday vignettes where a rescued bird’s nest commands as much attention as a prized collector’s item. Whether in the intentional juxtaposition of high and low, or the considered placement of a garden bench to appreciate a particular view, home and garden together reflect the epitome of Bunny Williams’ inimitable style.
