THE MOUNT DINING ROOM BY BUNNY WILLIAMS

A couple of months ago I had the pleasure of doing another road trip through Massachusetts, which included a stay in the Berkshires.  If you ever find yourself in the Berkshires region of Massachusetts then visiting “The Mount”, a gorgeous estate built by Edith Wharton, should be a priority on your list of places to visit. I promise, it won’t disappoint.

I could go on and on about the beautiful estate, its deep, rich history, its beautiful gardens and interior design. However, for today, I am focusing my attention specifically on the gorgeous dining room.  Over the years, much of the original furnishings have been sold but the estate has been lovingly restored by a multitude of designers.  Bunny Williams, a prominent interior designer, took charge of restoring the lovely dining room in a manner that evokes romanticism and a feminine quality. I can easily see myself having lunch or high tea here, can’t you?

Magenta is one of my favorite colors so I was naturally drawn to the beautiful china pattern. This gorgeous set of bone china is available in two colors: blue and burgundy (which actually reads like more of a magenta color).  The pattern is known as “Hampton Court” and is available from William Yeoward.  Their website provides the following description:

Hampton Court is a wonderful design based on an antique original. The vibrant colors on the Vine leaves are complimented by the 24 carat gold trailing shoots. 

The “Hampton Court” pattern is available from William Yeoward.

Of course, Bunny Williams carefully planned every detail and left no detail to chance. Nothing proves this more than the delicate glass jar filled with dog biscuits available for potential pets.
