2013 Holiday House: Part II

As promised yesterday, here’s Part II of my trip to the 2013 Holiday House (Part I is here, if you missed it!)
One of my favorite spaces in the house was right off the front entryway, a petite “Ladies Lounge” designed by Franklin Eighth. These vases immediately caught my eye; all of those little petals are, unexpectedly, made of glass. 
I’m a big fan of black and white art, so I loved these.

Quirky little boxes with a golden interior and a face on the outside.
Loved the graphic flooring as well.

Gorgeous wallpaper and a textural piece of art.

Another favorite space was the Sweet Sixteen room by Weitzman Halpern Designs, which had so many fun details like this gorgeous lamp, lucite side table, and Instagram wall…also that throw blanket was crazy soft. 
Good question, Barbie.

Chanel, Bebe…who can tell the difference?

Here’s a hallway vignette entitled that I loved, by Jennifer Beek and Georgie Hambright of J+G Designs. One of the designers (who was very sweet and friendly, by the way) was there to tell us about the space, entitled “A Painterly Christmas.” The artwork serves as an example of the young designers’ modern sensibilities mixed with their training under more traditional mentors (it reminded me of this). They also custom designed the upholstered piece, (what a cool, unique shape) and had it covered in  a gorgeous fabric reminiscent of little paint dabs.
I was so fascinated by the painting that I honestly forgot to photograph the rest of the space, but check out their Instagram to see the amazing wall hangings. I’m also mad at myself for not getting a snap of the gorgeous custom light fixtures-all the more reason why if you’re in NYC, you must visit The Holiday House! Too many good details to capture them all.

Also, at showhouses (for those who’ve never been), in each room the designer provides a stack of cards for visitors to take. They’re not traditional business cards, but rather a larger card that has the designer’s information on it, and usually a picture of another room they’ve designed or the room that you’re seeing in the showhouse. I personally love when the card has the room from the showhouse on it, either an illustration or a photograph, because then it serves as memento/reminder of what you’ve seen. Anyway, J+G had one of the cutest ones of the day.
The top floor was all about the analogy between sports and the battle against cancer, and served as a tribute to some inspiring breast cancer survivors.  Also, it was a total glammed-out man cave, so if you’re looking to drag your husband/boyfriend/dad to this-just send him to the top floor. 
By the way, I shared some blogging tips yesterday over on the Talented Talkers blog-you can check it out here if you’d like!
