Had the privilege of touring the NYC Holiday House located in The Academy Mansion at 2 East 63rd Street, which celebrates the best in interior design and entertaining while supporting the fight against breast cancer. The Mansion was built in 1920, has four stories and is 26,000 square feet of beautifully designed rooms filled with creative interiors through November and December.
We are getting in the spirit a little early this year with our HAND PAINTED Holiday Collections. Twenty-five years ago, Design Works International started as a hand paint design studio. The brush and pencil were the tools of the day. Now, technology has affected every aspect of our lives, including what we do here and we are PROUD to say that we are still hand painting many of our designs.
Whether you are influenced by classical or modern artists, being able to create traditionally is essential. From the Cubist portraits by Picasso and Salvador Dali’s Surrealist creations at The Museum of Modern Art, we look to the brush for inspiration.
The Metropolitan Museum of art just opened their exhibit “Madame Cezanne” to showcase the artist’s most painted model. While at the Met we can also find John Singer Sargent’s most important works as well, which include an extensive collection of gorgeous watercolors.
