As the founder of Holiday House Design Show, an interior designer and a 23-year breast cancer survivor, COVID-19 is not the first challenge I have faced. I have held the annual fall NYC showhouse for the last 12 years and the annual summer Hamptons showhouse for the last 4 years to benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation®, yet this year that proved impossible. The health and safety of our staff, design community and visitors are our top priorities, and we know that breast cancer patients and survivors are at an even higher risk. Therefore, I had to make the difficult decision to cancel the event.
In an effort to move forward with our new normal, we decided to pivot and produce a virtual designer showhouse to be published in the Hamptons Magazine Home and Garden issue to continue raising money for breast cancer research and keep our community engaged and safe during the summer months. Although we have gone virtual, you will find that this issue is packed with rooms crafted by interiors icons and tons of real life design inspiration to transform your own abode. Huge thanks to the entire team at Hamptons Magazine for making this dream a reality.
