Sneak Peek Holiday House NYC 2015

Yesterday, I took a trip into New York City for media day to get a sneak peek into the Holiday House NYC founded by Iris Danker, a holiday-themed Designer Showhouse in a historic 20,000+ square foot mansion presented by Traditional Home.  Holiday House NYC benefits The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, founded by Evelyn Lauder in 1993.  The foundation is a pioneer in dramatically improving diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of breast cancer to help women globally.   I look forward to the Holiday House NYC opening each year.  Feel the love for life, compassion and support, all while enjoying great design for a great cause.

Snow Day – Sitting Room by Bjorn Bjornsson



Crystal logs and a custom metal starburst fireplace screen adorn the fireplace.

Sparking crystal, silver and snowy white elements transform the space into a snow day delight.  The room features custom furniture by Christopher Guy.  Oversized mirrors make the dark wood panel room open and bright.


The ceiling is gorgeous and grand.

Boxing Day – Sitting Room/Library by Robert Passal for Scotland

An ode to Scotland, Robert Passcal chose a to layer the space keeping it clean and serene.  The room features beautiful European mid-century antiques and fabrics from the Scottish mills in warm creams and greys.  Perfection!  Ronda Carman fabrics.


The art is eye catching. -An original Picasso
