Holiday House NYC Part II – Color Bliss

My tour of the  Holiday House  to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation  continues.  Color in design is very important.  Color changes the mood of a room and how you feel stepping into it.  This time of year when the days are shorter and nights longer,   more color is the perfect remedy for those winter blues.

Gregory Allan Kramer – “Celebrate the Holidays”


High-end graffiti paint imported from Germany was used by Kramer. “The good thing about it is that there are no mistakes, and the kids can do it, too, as long as they wear vapor masks,” he says.


If you dare be so bold…. elegant, colorful, playful, stimulating the child in you.
