Bryan Huffman is a coauthor of "Garden Secrets of Bunny Mellon", "Bunny Mellon Garden Journal", and the newly released "Bunny Mellon Style." A North Carolina based Interior Designer, Bryan was a close friend of Bunny Mellon the last 10 years of her life, experiencing firsthand true Bunny "Style" with multiple visits to her various properties.  He met her through the church she helped to design and build in Upperville, Virginia, Trinity Episcopal Church, forming a deep friendship which morphed into nightly phone calls to discuss the events of the day.  He shall share details of her "Style" and offer a PowerPoint presentation sharing details of her private life and her amazing "eye." Bunny's visual genius is without parallel and is thoroughly chronicled through rare private photos from her own collection along with professional photography and watercolors she commissioned of many of her interiors. The book offers rare glimpses into her life and the shaping of her design philosophy.
