This weekend’s abrupt snowfall in the Northeast has us shaking in our waterproof boots: If this is what fall has in store, we don’t even want to think about winter. So, we’re stocking up on warm thoughts and making mental to-dos to get us through the next few hibernation-worthy months. At the top of what’s shaping up to be a rather long list so far is taking a swim on the grounds of this handsome Georgian-style estate in Fairfield County, Connecticut. But since the home’s designer is none other than the effortlessly lovely Bunny Williams, we’ve had to add a few more items to our wish list, like throwing a sweet summer feast in the Gracie Studio-clad formal dining room and picking fresh flowers for the golden-hued living room.
