The Art of Holiday House

The Art of Holiday House

We have been inspired by the exquisite art that designers incorporate into their Holiday House NYC designs.  As Holiday House alum Ellie Cullman says, “Art is the heart and soul of any interior.”

This year, Holiday House NYC features a Thursday night Art Lecture Series.  It kicked off last Thursday, November 20, with “Art & Design: An Essential Synergy” featuring renowned designers Ellie Cullman, Sandra Nunnerley, Eric Cohler with moderator Kipton Cronkite.

Kipton Cronkite, Sandra Nunnerley, Eric Cohler and Ellie Cullman at Holiday House.

It was standing room only for this first lecture, where Eric Cohler told the audience, “Art informs everything I do. It’s like air and water. It sustains me,” and Sandra Nunnerley advised, “See, see, see. The eye is a muscle and you must constantly train it!”

Visit our events page for details on the upcoming art lectures.

Another exciting edition to this year’s event is a sale of many artworks in the house with a portion of proceeds benefiting The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.  This sale includes pieces from masters such as Andy Warhol and Willem de Kooning as well as work from emerging artists with extremely affordable prices points.

Designer Justin Shaulis features several of the notable works in his art themed space, which transports you out of the NYC cold and takes you “Gallery Hopping in Miami.”
