about Holiday House:

Since 2008, founder Iris Dankner has brought the industry two annual designer showhouses (fall in New York City and summer in the East End of Long Island), both to benefit breast cancer research.  The Showhouse attracts interior designers from across the country in order to transform the homes into fantastical spaces.  Each design is themed around a holiday or special moment in life. 

Happy Nesting

Our Nine Top Moments With Source Shares 

1. Kara Mann's Indian Summer dining room shows a beautiful set table, crisp and ready for entertaining with a unique textural leather table runner, stylish Ikat plates from Hermes combining three different patterns together.  The chairs from Baker Furniture finish off the design beautifully.

2. West Chin's Midnight Romance is infused throughout the home with a a cool, modern vibe and he designed the kitchen, dining area and outside deck showing off his talent.  Much of the lighting and furniture/accessories can be found at his East Hampton shop (including the fantastic bar cart), Out East & West.

3.  We love Chad James Home's cozy, warm sitting room inspired by May Day.  These pillows showcase a new fabric pattern from Scalamandre, and worked to inspire the entire design of the room.  The antiques from Newel Gallery gave the needed charm and patina to the space. 

 4. We were immediately drawn to this gorgeous, dramatic wallpaper in 
Keith Baltimore's Harvest East End Wine Room
It is a bountiful, oversized botanical pattern against a stunning black ground!
Wallpaper designed by Flavor Paper 
Paper Hanger:  All Island Painting & Paperhanging 

5. Wesley Moon's Palm Sunday bedroom is tropical and modern!  The Pierre Frey wallpaper and fabric swathed on the walls and bed, sets the tone and this bedroom topped our favorite spaces in the home. The Savoir Bed adds a super luxurious feel to the room, and we love the HJ Hakimian rug bringing balance and a calmness to the design. 

 6. We are smitten with this gorgeous Art Deco style chandelier in Elizabeth Dow's bedroom and it adds glamour to the serene space.  Many of the items (including the incredible Cloud bed) can be found at Dow's home shop in East Hampton.  The art from 
Sara Nightingale Gallery pairs wonderfully with the design!

7. Carmina Roth's gorgeous bedroom & adjoining deck
beautifully channels a chic St. Bart's lifestyle.
Hermes fabric/pillow (spells Hermes backwards) from
Jerry Pair Showrooms, Dedar. 
Carmina custom designed this floating live-edge platform bed with 
Fairfield Co. Antique & Design Center
8. Sasha Bikoff's moody bedroom features hand painted wallpaper by de Guorney giving the room an ethereal and dramatic feel, hence the room's theme, A Starry Summer Night!  
The Matouk bedding compliments it well to boot.

9. Ann Tarasoff's Butler's Pantry Spring Fling took a small space and gave it great style utilizing a gorgeous pine console and map from English Country Antiques' Bridgehampton shop, a breezy window treatment fabric and trim from Kravet, and a summer infusion with three wallpapers by Thibaut!
