Overview

An Affair with a House continues to be a top seller for STC, with more than 45,000 copies in print
Shows readers how to realize their own taste and design preferences

You learn from people with great taste," says Bunny Williams. She should know. As a novice, Williams worked for legendary decorators Sister Parish and Albert Hadley, absorbing everything she could of their peerless design sense. Striking out on her own, she rose to the top rank of the interior design profession, where she has stylishly remained for the last 30 years. Now, it's our turn to learn from her.

Part memoir and part how-to manual, Bunny Williams' Point of View showcases many of the drop-dead chic but always cozily comfortable residences whose interiors Williams has designed during her astounding career. As Williams tells it, every design decision she makes is based on a bedrock principle: "Knowing what you value is essential." Her conviction that every person's home should manifest their personality guides her as she creates environments that fit each client precisely, "like a couture suit."

By showing you how to plan and then accomplish that plan for each room of your house, Williams inspires you to take account of your own values--and to realize your personal vision of how you want to live. As she says about the book: "My point of view will help you discover yours."

    A reviewer

    This oversized, beautifully crafted book is one of the best design/decorating books I have read. Bunny Williams is a pro, not only as a prominent designer, but as a writer. The photos are top-notch, the book is logically organized, and the writing is superb. She intertwines her personal story with her insightful design philosophy, which results in a beautiful reference book for professional designers and their clients. As an interior designer myself, I highly recommend this book.
