This week I’ve been sharing with you my favorite items from the Sotheby’s auction of the estate of Mrs. Paul Mellon, aka “Bunny” Mellon. We’ve looked at some of her “Masterworks” and her “Jewels & Objects of Vertu”. Today I’ve saved my favorite – the “Interiors”.
Update: The “Masterworks” auction took place Monday night, and total sales exceeded over $158 MILLION dollars. The Mark Rothko “Untitled” Yellow, Orange, Yellow, Light Orange sold for over $36,000,000.
Clearly great art collectors agree with Mellon’s terrific eye for art. Her collection exceeded the projected sales.

Take a look at the Sotheby’s catalog to see the many beautiful items included in the “Interiors” auction. Bunny Mellon had impeccable taste, and each items is simply striking and refined. I could spend hours pouring over the catalog!
