Don't miss Traditional Homes' Holiday House 2011- a show house open now until December 11th at 2 East 63rd St. Top designers show off their ample talents with inspiring and sometimes humorous takes on various traditional and not so traditional (think Superbowl Sunday, Night at The Oscars, Spring Equinox) holidays celebrated throughout the year. Don't miss Jennifer Duneier's enchanting Easter Bunny diorama just outside the window of her charming second floor bath and lounge. Inson Wood's showstopper Chinese New Year's Celebration (pictured above) is a jewel box of red laquer, pagoda valances, modern art and a melange of textures and colors. Just being in the glamourous space made me feel unfathomably rich with happiness! The ultimate star, however, is the actual venue- 2 East 63rd St. the monastery-like 75 foot wide townhouse that was built in 1921 as a private residence for Mr. William Ziegler, Jr. Its unconventional design situates the structure around a center courtyard garden adding light and nature to the mansion's grandly proportioned public and private rooms. The scale and detail are undoubtedly without compare anywhere else in the city. One can only imagine how much fun it would be as a family home overflowing with kids and canines-- lots of places to hide and lots of places to seek! The house later became home to Five and Dime Store heir Norman Bailey Woolworth and, until recently, housed the New York Academy of Sciences. Current ownership is held by a financier who paid somewhere in the range of $31.5 million for the pleasure of holding the key to this magnificent property. For the last four years the site has been graciously provided for this annual show house which raises much needed funds for the fight against Breast Cancer.
