Iris Danker, Queen of the designer showhouse known as ‘HOLIDAY HOUSE’ is holding court until Wednesday, December 6th. The breast cancer survivor and founder of the stylish New York Showhouse—whose proceeds benefit the Breast Cancer Research Foundation—marks the tenth year of the benefit show house as well as Danker’s own 20-year anniversary of being cancer-free. This year’s showhouse procured 24 designers, each adding luxury details to Manhattan’s historic Academy Mansion.

Gorgeous art, luminous lighting, fantabulous furniture and the chicest paint colors (Benjamin Moore) helped make 2017 a stellar year for luxury details at Holiday House NYC.  From over-the-top game rooms to festival inspired hallways and glamorous French kitchens, the mansion’s rooms come to awe-inspiring life.
