At Home in the Kitchen with Bunny Williams

Our second installment of At Home in the Kitchen takes us to the chic Manhattan home of interior design icon Bunny Williams and husband, legendary antiquarian and shopkeeper John Rosselli! A move to a slightly bigger and brighter apartment on a higher floor in their classic 1920’s upper east side building, precipitated a thoughtful renovation. Join me and Susanna Salk for a visit with Bunny as she walks us through her chic new city kitchen!

Taking into consideration their Manhattan lifestyle, Bunny designed a fresh space with a decided city glamour and yet brimming with practicality. Extra deep cabinetry and hidden appliances make it the perfect space for drinks. And since they use the kitchen primarily after work hours, Bunny worked with Donald Kaufman to develop the deep custom green color for the cabinetry that adds an extra allure for evening entertaining.

Friend, designer Brian Sawyer, introduced her to terrazzo specialists Durite, where Bunny fabricated her bespoke version!
