Studio Neshama Presents Stairwell at Holiday House NYC 2019

The work of Studio Neshama designer Tathienne Kader ties together the entire 2019 Holiday House NYC charity show home. The New York-based interior designer’s latest creations include the art-filled sections of the house’s main stairwell and second and third floor landings.

For this charity-benefitting project, Kader wanted to take the historical bones of this captivating house and turn it into a warm inviting space focused on guests’ well-being. Her space is titled “Well for Within, a Neutral Palette.”

“The name ‘Neshama’ actually means ‘soul’ in Hebrew, so I decided on that name because it’s always been drawn to me that interior design really touches the soul,” Kader shared with House Tipster Industry. “Of the house, of where you’re working, wherever you are. Ideally, that’s what I wanted to bring into this space for the Holiday House.”

To fill this central area with exceptional art and furnishings, Studio Neshama worked with HLK Art Group, John Lyle, Arteriors Home, America PAingint, Elitis, Benjamin Moore, Stark Carpet, and Extreme Carpets with installer Barry Simon.

“This was a bit of a tricky space, because we had a lot of mirrors, really high ceilings,” Kader said. “We couldn’t do a chandelier or hanging pendant in this space, so lighting was a challenge. But it’s definitely something we accomplished, and I really wanted to bring life into this space with the art and make it meaningful.”

The show, which is now celebrating its 12th annual event, is a fundraising benefit for the Breast Cancer Research Fund. Through December 15, guests will be able to see the room in person at the historical building address, 125 East 65th Street in Manhattan.
