La Colina

Over the weekend I had some time with my favorite design books and went back to read Bunny Williams’ A House by the Sea. It was nostalgia about our vacation in the Dominican Republic a couple of winters ago that brought this book to my mind. That and the lovely story of how one of the most beautiful homes, owned by the very chic couple -antiques collector John Rosselli and designer Bunny Williams- came to life. La Colina (The Hill in Spanish) was named after its location on the highest hill in Corales, Punta Cana. The couples’ winter home -the house was built over a period of 18 months with the help of designer and architect friends.

Bunny Williams Home in the Dominican Republic, La Collina

The interiors are the very definition of comfortable island life. Slipcovers unify a medley of antiques and furniture pieces purchased over time, while collections of blue and white porcelain, vintage textiles, books, seashells and corrals give life and a personal touch to this magnificent home. My favorite part is that every piece comes with a story. It’s all about friendship and a life well-lived at La Colina.
