Description


A natural sequel to the seminal An Affair with a House, this is Bunny Williams’ most ambitious book to date.

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 fowl, 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.

Praise For…


"Bunny Williams decorates the room outside her house with the same care and vision that uses for the spaces inside. From every room of her 18th-century manor house in Litchfield County, Connecticut, the noted interior designer’s garden “rooms” are visible. She takes readers along her parterres, inside her conservatory, through her vegetable gardens and fruit orchards, deep into the woodlands, and into her Greek Revival–style folly, which is positioned near her pool. She shows us not only what grows outside, but how to use some of those elements indoors. A rescued bird’s nest, for instance, assumes an importance in a room akin to a treasured object. That alone reveals her talents and her eye as a designer." — MILIEU MAGAZINE 

"Bunny Williams's newest book serves as a heartfelt ode to the gardens and woodlands that surround her 18th-century manor house in Northwestern Connecticut. Life in the Garden is brimming with personal stories and previously unseen photographs, providing readers with the design legend's expert advice on nurturing their gardens and integrating natural elements into their homes." — VERANDA

"Interior designer Bunny Williams’s forthcoming release is a love letter to her garden and the wooded property surrounding her 18th century Connecticut home. In Life in the Garden, tour Bunny’s conservatory, vegetable garden, orchard, aviary, and more—all with the esteemed designer as your guide." — AT HOME IN ARKANSAS
