Every month I like to treat myself to a new book and this time I really wanted one that was about just one house. These are my favourite types of decorating books - I think you can really absorb yourself in the true style of the person who lives there, and seeing how they live from day-to-day is endlessly fascinating.
An Affair With A House by Bunny Williams is one of those books I had seen again and again but for some reason never purchased, so I decided that now was the time. This is a book from 2005, so I am pretty late to the party. However the timeless style that fills this book is still absolutely relevant and beautiful today, a gentle reminder that classic never dates.
This book tells the thirty-year story of Bunny Williams’ life at her country home in Connecticut and how it has evolved over that time. It is part memoir, part decorating manual, part cookbook - basically it is the story of a life well lived in a home that means so much to its owner. If I ever get the chance to write a book one day, this is the kind that I would most like to create.
The abundance of green really does lift the spirits

I thought I would share some furniture and decorative objects inspired by Bunny’s style. This is not a sponsored post, as ever I am just sharing knowledge and my love for beautiful things!
I really hope you’ve enjoyed this look at the incredible home and style of Bunny Williams. To purchase the book CLICK HERE
