Get the Look: Holiday House NYC 2015

Wednesday marked the opening of one of our favorite holiday events, Holiday House NYC. Besides being one of the largest and best-attended show houses in the New York region, it’s also one of the area’s biggest and most popular design events in general. Each year Holiday House, which is an important annual fundraiser for the Breast Cancer Research Foundation, draws major names from the world of interior design to put together show-stopping rooms. The 2015 roster of designers features notable designers like Julia Buckingham, Campion Platt, and Vicente Wolf, and the event is chaired by a dream team including Alexa Hampton and Thom Filicia.

Basically, experiencing Holiday House is like walking through the pages of Elle Decor. It’s that good.

While we haven’t been able to sneak away to the city to see the show for ourselves yet (luckily it’s open until December 2!), we did happen to spot photos from the opening night events, and the rooms are incredible. Take a peek at a few of our favorites spaces from the show house, plus a selection of pieces from The Local Vault that will help you recreate these drop-dead gorgeous rooms at home.

The first room that caught our eye was the dramatic game room by Marks & France Design. We love how the pops of gold, crystal chandeliers and velvet upholstery add a sense of luminosity to the dark space.
