Inside the New Manhattan Apartment of Decorating Legend Bunny Williams
Photography by Francesco Lagnese




New digs, same belongings, different take. “I brought so much stuff up here,” says interior decorator Bunny Williams—first named to the AD100 in 1995 and elevated to its Hall of Fame three years ago—of the Manhattan apartment that she shares with her husband, John Rosselli, the legendary antiques dealer and home-furnishings maestro. 






“It was just fun to rehang all the pictures, add some new things, and change it up,” she adds. “I can spend hours playing house.”




“I painted the front hall electric-blue because it doesn’t have a window and has no light.




 It’s so much fun to walk into this pop of very strong color.” Light fixture by McEwen Lighting Studio; antique console, mirror, vase, and dog bed from John Rosselli Antiques; 1930s bronze vulture atop 18th-century marble column.






Located on an upper floor of the palatial 1920s French Gothic Revival pile that Williams has called home for decades, the two-bedroom flat fell into her expert hands in 2018, right at the time she and Rosselli began craving something different.

“We wanted a little bit more space, and I wanted more light,” she explains. Rosselli, stepping into the library to join the chat, chimes in, “At ten minutes after nine, the sun starts to turn, and this whole section of the building just brightens up.”
