Spaces and places with remarkable personality grace the feature pages of the latest issue of Design New England. Our cover title, “Garden Envy,” refers to the lush oasis of designer Bunny Williams, just one of the magical places – such as a storybook cottage with bowling alley and a house with a double shot of solar power and a dressing salon with a Belle Époche flair – we explore.
Garden – Almost Heaven: Design guru Bunny Williams turns her backyard into a gardener’s mecca. Mistakes were made, Williams admits, but in the end, she tamed her Connecticut landscape with signature comfort and grace.
Architecture – Cape Essentials: The beautifully sparse landscape of Truro, Massachusetts, inspires a house that is sublime in its simplicity with a low profile, yet high style.
Finding Folly – Bowled Over: A tenpins alley and its quaint cottage façade so enchanted its owners that they restored it to game-on perfection.
Interiors – Favorite Things: Delightful colors, patterns, and art transform a designer’s house into a family home bursting with her personality.
