TOP Interior Designer in NYC Bunny Williams Reveals Her Tried-and-True Living Room Ideas

Interiors by AD100 designer Bunny Williams have always been studied riffs on traditionalism—expertly selected antiques mixed with classic, contemporary pieces and a dash of color from objects and accessories collected across the globe. The living room she designed for the third annual Sotheby’s Designer Showhouse and Auction is no different. A serene haven within a collector’s Manhattan pied-à-terre, the space exemplifies the hallmarks of a Williams interior—nods to antique forms, a thoughtfully edited palette that still feels warm, and plenty of places to set your drink. We caught up with Williams to find out her pro tips for designing a comfortable living room. Glimpse the space yourself April 9 through 16 at the auction house’s midtown Manhattan headquarters.

Think about what people need “What I always want to achieve is warmth, even if the furniture has a modern sensibility. It’s the arrangement of things that indicates that I’ve planned the room for people and not a photo shoot. There will always be a table beside a chair for a drink, a book, or a bouquet. The overall furniture plan will be designed for the way people actually sit and talk.”

Accessorize smartly “Buy things you will not get tired of quickly. Even though you can change out accessories easily, I think it is important to spend your money wisely to create a room that will last.”
