New York - Holiday House


I have always wanted to go to one of the Holiday House show-homes and finally made it to the last days of Holiday House NYC (with my patient husband in tow).


The concept was founded in 2008 by Interior Designer Iris Dankner, who is a breast cancer survivor of 20+ years and her concept now has locations in New York, The Hamptons and London. Her idea was to showcase great design to the public and at the same time give proceeds to a good cause (ticket proceeds go to Breast Cancer Research Foundation®).

This years 13 000 sq ft home features 20 designers who transformed this gorgeous limestone home on the Upper East side and it did not disappoint.


Here are my favourite spaces.
