Happy Holiday House! Made Possible By @traditionalhome + @BCRFcure

Yesterday, we got a sneak peek of the 5th annual Holiday House, a decorator show house benefiting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and featuring original room and tabletop settings by renowned designers. Housed in a limestone mansion on the Upper East Side, the spacious, molding-decorated interiors were perfect blank canvasses for the talented interior designers.

Each room’s theme was rooted in a reason to celebrate, whether it be Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Halloween or “Girls Night Out.”  We highly encourage everyone to stop by the space, which opens tomorrow and runs through November 18th (11:00AM-5:00PM, $30 admission). It’s for a great cause and there is a lot of design to see!  Here are a few highlights from our first visit:

Near the entrance, we were particularly taken with Geoffrey Bradfield‘s elegant yet edgy drawing room, which was inspired by Marcel Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past and “celebrates stylish art from both past and present.”

Any dream residence is incomplete without outdoor space. The gorgeous courtyard was made even more stunning by Lee Najman Designs.  With the help of Baccarat, Pratt & Lampert Paints and Robert Allen fabrics, among other sources, the area embodies its “Seasons of Joy” theme.

Claudia Giselle Design, LLC‘s “Girl’s Night Out” boudoir has a classic and luxe feel. Maya Romanoff surfacing adds a shot of glittering gold, and Leucos USA and Boyd Lighting put things in the right light.  Robert Allen fabric covered chair, pillow and wall panels look sharp against the smoky gray and pink-hued paint from Benjamin Moore.

On the second floor, Vicente Wolf for ALB whipped up a “Winter White” bedroom that included his own collection as well as ALB International Fabrics and Brunswig et Fils.

It was time for a birthday celebration in Suzanne Eason‘s colorful and cheery study. Handmade “Chroma” wallpaper from Trove provides the perfect backdrop for the rich blue and green furnishings.

Brett Beldock provides a refreshing take on Valentine’s Day in Brett Design Inc.‘s room. The designer’s own wallpaper adorns the retro-chic, romantic space.

Stepping into the Sweet Sixteen room made us nostalgic for our youth. Robyn Karp Design Inc. created an oasis that any teenage girl would die for.  Bathed in shades of lavender, sophisticated touches, such as notable art, photography and polished furniture complete the space.

At the very top, Huntley & Co. Interior Design imagined a playhouse for an urban, modern day Marie-Antoinette.  The Roche Bobois furnishings, including a vintage-looking coffee/cocktail bar, make  for decadent and glamorous gatherings.
