What Happens When Over 100 Interior Designers Get Together Under One Roof
(Source: Lonny)This morning, Lonny Articles Editor Jen Fernandez and I were just strolling down East 63rd Street, minding our own business, when we stumbled upon the Academy Mansion. Ok, that's a lie—we planned to be there. But we didn't plan on finding as much design inspiration as we did. At the sixth annual Holiday House NYC, interiors experts have joined together to transform four sprawling floors of a classic townhouse to raise awareness and critical funding for The Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
We were honored to tour the space with founder and co-chairman Iris Dankner and overwhelmed by all of the fine details so carefully thought out by each designer. We don't want to reveal too much—this is surely just the beginning of many conversations the House will inspire this month—but here are a few highlights we had to share right away.

Her New Year's Eve lounge was inspired by fashion stylist Caroline Sieber's IG post—a scene of returning home to relax after an overseas adventure. Can you believe this sofa is from Ballard Design? Salk added a luxe nail head trim detail and finished the room with a fuzzy Madeline Weinrib rug.
