NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The latest interior design trends are taking over the annual Holiday House on the Upper East Side.
This year, you can bid on the featured items and while all the rooms may look different, one thing stays the same: all proceeds benefit a good cause.READ MORE: New Jersey Officials Monitoring Omicron Variant, But Say Delta Is Still A Concern As Travel Picks Up
CBS2’s Alex Denis took a look inside the house on E. 62nd Street where interior designers displayed their best work to enhance the grandeur of the historical site.
The home features 25 rooms, redesigned from ceiling to floor, showcasing the latest trends pairing old with new.
“I channeled the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles, and this whole area has been paneled with mirrors and gold gilded around with mica,” interior designer Amy Lau said.
At the heart of the four-story mansion lies the naked truth behind the event, founded by breast cancer survivor Iris Dankner.
“I was diagnosed at age 40 and at my first routine mammogram. And it was early detection that saved my life,” she said.READ MORE: NYC 'Strongly Recommends' Masks In Public Indoor Spaces, As Omicron Variant Reaches North America
Dankner paired her two passions, design and her hope for a cure, to create the Holiday House. Now, seven years later and with $800,000 donated to breast cancer research, designers long to participate in the showcase.
“When you do things like this, you’re giving back in so many ways,” interior designer Michael Tavano said.
This year, collectable art lines the walls, including an Andy Warhol work. Rare statement pieces also fill room after room and custom rugs greet you with a pop of color.
As Denis reported, if you see something you like, ask! It may be for sale, with a portion of the proceeds benefitting the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
The showcase is open seven days a week, and a ticket costs $35.
