New guide honors life, design of Bunny Mellon, the heiress who built the White Household Rose Backyard gardenShasta Stjacques April 24, 2022
The deal with of “Bunny Mellon Style” features a watercolor painting of the late heiress’ Paris condominium, embellished in the late 1970s or early 1980s. With spare French country furniture, a painted flooring and an orange and yellow Mark Rothko painting hanging on a wall, it is photo-ideal, even now, explained her good friend Bryan Huffman — co-author of the book with Mellon’s grandson, wealth supervisor Thomas Lloyd, and backyard expert Linda Jane Holden.
The ebook is one much more tribute to Mellon, a horticulturist, artwork collector and philanthropist who lived a prolonged and unusual life. She was 103 when she died in 2014.
