Critical acclaim, top interior designers, jaw dropping interiors, a stunning venue and one amazing cause, breast cancer research. That’s Holiday House NYC in a beautiful nut shell that the Nut Cracker himself couldn’t break. After attending the star studded Opening Night Gala a couple of weeks ago, we couldn’t resist reliving some of our favorites from Holiday House Past.
In fact, we were involved in the very first Holiday House NYC in 2008. Back then SuperStrata was an eponymous design studio run by our founder Jonas Everets under the moniker Jonas Everets Design. Jonas was thrilled when interior designer Kathy Abbott approached JED to do a custom wall treatment for her Kwanza themed room. The answer was a resounding yes! Beyond having a passion for great design, Holiday House’s mission was near and dear to his heart.
That first year brought together top designers and participants under a theme that is hard not to rally around- celebrate life! Every designer was asked to choose an inspirational holiday to design his or her space around in the historic Upper East Side mansion that would become Holiday House NYC’s home, Academy Mansion. Over the next six years the showhouse has seen top talent from the New York City interior design scene transform the Academy Mansion into a glorious and often luxurious homage to the beauty of life itself.
