Holiday House 2011

 Today was "Press Preview day" at Holiday House 2011 on 2 E 63rd. It was a festive event! No... really! Literally, every room was decorated according to a holiday. Christmas, Birthday, Easter, Thanksgiving, etc. Take a peek!

The Foyer of the house was designed by the talented Bradley Thiergartner  and their inspiration was Christmas. The room was beautiful to begin with... travertine walls, coffered octagonal ceiling imitating the same shapes on the marble floor and mirrors. The Art collection was kept both modern and classic and the color palette was kept in the warm tones of orange, yellow and green. Beautiful!

This was a room designed by Ally Coulter. She kept it elegant but still laid back. I thought it was a great approach to take a room for a holiday such as Mother's day. All her pieces came mostly from Ralph Lauren, where she began her design career, Stark Carpets, Paul Ferrante and David Duncan Antiques.

This was a great room designed by Inson Wood and inspired by the Chinese New Year. The room had the best furniture and art in the entire house.  A Ruhlman desk and cabinet, Fromental wallpaper (best embroidered wallpaper by the way), Art by Jeff Koons, Donghia fabrics, you name it. The super glossy red on the walls made this one of the most vibrant rooms in the entire house. 

This room was designed by Eileen Kathryn Boyd, a popular interior designer who also designed a room in the pool house at The Hamptons Showhouse 2011.

Andreea Avram Rusu is not only an interior designer but an architect and lighting designer too. She designed all the lighting and the art deco dividers in the room. The palette was sophisticated, warm and unisex, a great take for a room that celebrated New Year's Eve.

This was one of my favorite rooms! It was designed by the multifaceted and talented Suzanne Eason who is an interior designer, creative director and a graphic designer. She also spoke perfect Spanish.
In her Hallowen inspired room, wallpaper of black birds on a white background from Trove covered the entire ceiling and played the main role in the room. Black and white photography by Chip Forelli and Stark Carpets covered the rest of the surfaces and accessories like orange Hermes boxes and luxurious scents finished the room.

This room made me want to have chocolate, strawberries and Champagne. The chocolate were the walls. strawberries were the accessories and curtains; the sparkly elements like the bronze chair, desk and chandelier were the Champagne. A decadently and feminine room designed by Bittt.

A masculine room, which is refreshing to see, designed by the talented architects Thomas Hickey and Edward Yedid.
