Inspired Design

Inspired DesignJenny worked with Desiree Lee, former gardener to Bunny Mellon at her Virginia estate, Oak Spring, to create two exquisite settings that she calls Vintage Tastemakers Spring Tablescapes. “When Mrs. Mellon died, many of her formal garden staff dispersed from Oak Spring, allowing women like me, with dreams of following in Jackie Kennedy and Bunny Mellon’s footsteps, to work with them in our own homes and gardens,” explains Jenny. “It is always a delight to forage, arrange flowers, and style with Desiree, as much of her knowledge is invaluable, being rooted in that which Mrs. Mellon taught her.”
