Visit Holiday House in New York City This Fall On The Upper East Side

It feels officially like Fall in New York City when Holiday House Designer Showhouse opens their doors showing beautiful and innovative interior design from top interior designers in the industry. I've participated in creating spaces three times for this lovely designer/fundraiser event, and it's a rare opportunity to work on the inside of historic and unique homes with other like-minded designers. I love seeing how these talents whip the spaces into shape, and all while raising funds for the Breast Cancer Research. This year's new location marks the 14th annual designer showhouse, and I truly hope to see you there. I'll be reviewing many of my favorite rooms here so please check back.

This year is a new location on the Upper East Side at
The Kent at 200 E 95th Street
from November 10 - December 11, 2022
tickets can be purchased online or at the door. 
and visit from Tuesday - Sunday 11am-5pm
(closed on Mondays and November 24th & 25th)
