It’s time to ring in the New Year and recap the hottest downtown designs and ideas of the holiday season-brought to you by the designers, artists, and visionaries of HH Soho!
In keeping up with the ever-changing style of Soho, Holiday House is honored to debut the rebranding of timeless, elegant Geoffrey Bradfield, Inc. into the ultra-chic Bradfield & Tobin. Their downtown living room celebrates International Artist Day and embraces both the “Contemporary and the Classical”. With magnificent pieces such as a pair of vibrant red and blue Jean-Marie Fiori Parrot Sculptures by Galerie Dumonteil and a Francesca Pasquali “Iceberg” sculpture from Leila Heller Gallery, the space is dramatic yet tranquil. Juan Carretero‘s bold display of Ran Ortner’s Element #34 is yet another vibrant example of the impact of Fine Art in design.
One of the artists we are particularly thankful for is Jaime Walters, the designer of the“Friendsgiving” kitchen! The mixture of wood and vibrant gold metals produce a rustic and festive atmosphere. All of the pieces in the room are locally sourced. By keeping it “local”, Jaime was able to re-create the feeling of a cozy group of friends gathering together to celebrate. Gilt Home‘s holiday table scape is the perfect place to hang around and sip on some drinks before the big turkey is fully cooked. If hanging around and enjoying a cocktail is your thing, it is always Happy Hour in the Master Lounge designed by Tina Ramchandani Creative. Kick back and relax on the ultra-luxe sofa by DesignLush while the finishing touches on your thanksgiving meal is being prepared.
As you enjoy the last bites of your favorite Thanksgiving pie, it is time to mentally prepare for the madness that is Black Friday. Campion Platt‘s stunning formal dining room serves as an homage to the infamous day of shopping. His design captures the abundance, decadence, dark, consumerism of the holiday as he describes his take as “a rawness, which speaks to the darker side of Black Friday.” The Kimora Dining Table from Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams serves not only as the place to feast, but also as a magnificent centerpiece. Platt’s design is sure to inspire your own.
One thing that New Yorkers are not-so-thankful for is the Winter Solstice. Tori Golub is able to shed some light on that dark day for us with creative design and exquisite pieces from our presenting sponsor, Incollect. Bask in the “dusky glow” of the parlor– a perfect spot to have a cup of hot chocolate while snuggled up in the Marco Zanuso club chair. This cozy room is essential as you prepare for yet another winter season.
Now that you’ve made it through the Winter Solstice, “The Most Wonderful Time of the Year” begins. Harry Heissmann‘s Christmas themed room can bring joy to even those on the naughty list! The ‘‘Star of Bethlehem” over the bed is a quintessential Christmas decoration that everyone will recognize. According to Harry, this space creates “magic, wonder and the fantasy of Christmas” This wonderland is the idyllic spot to wake up on Christmas morning! Don’t forget to add a little glitz with Charles Nafie Architect’s sparkling light. As we all know, nothing screams Christmas quite like evergreen! Vert Gardens and Unlimited Earth Care did some fabulous landscaping with winter-friendly greenery such as junipers.
Nothing rings in the new year quite like RC STUDIO’s fresh, sexy guest bedroom. “After the Ball Drops” is the perfect place to sit and reflect on this fabulous year. You can draw the chic Alison Lew ombre drapes and lay on Kate Shoen’s Bespoke Alpaca daybed while pondering your new year resolutions. Afterwards, a nice hot shower in the beautiful “botanical bathroom” by Judy Ross Textiles own “Fauna” Collection for Garnet Hill (available in stores and online on Feb. 17) will be the cherry on top of your holiday season!
