“I’ve always loved the Whitney since I was a kid. The hub of such interesting and boundary pushing modern art. And now its a true destination in an iconic neighborhood.” – Danielle Colding of Danielle Colding Designs
“The Carlyle” – Jennifer Hunter of Jennifer Hunter Design.
“I had the privilege of meeting Albert Hadley quite a few times. He has always been my iconic NY design inspiration. His designs were inspirational, incredible, and timeless. The old world in which he lived and worked brings me back to the good old days and better times. He was such a fine gentleman.” – Evelyn Benetar of New York Interior Design
“I’m loving some of the new or re-visioned hotels around Manhattan like Park Lane and The Ned NoMad where there is a multi-sensory experience with layered textures but still very understandable spaces. The depth of the design feels soulful, connecting the past to the present.” – Rachael Grochowski of RHG Architecture + Design
“David Adjaye 130 William” – Everick Brown of Everick Brown Design
“Iris Apfel” – Noz Nozawa of Noz Design
“Le Coucou – my version of an iconic NY destination. The luxurious simplicity of the interiors and spectacular food make my heart sing. I have the absolute best time, every-time I dine.” – Michael Del Piero of Michael Del Piero
“My favorite Design inspiration destination in New York is NYDC, naturally. Equally awesome is the Arlo Nomad rooftop for the incredibly dense, awe-inspiring views, and The Met Museum, namely the “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion” exhibit.” – Leah Alexander of Beauty is Abundant
“My favorite design inspiration started with my Mother & Grandmother growing up. Our home was always beautiful and thoughtfully designed with custom drapery and upholstery. Today my inspiration is still drawn from those memories and fashion; textures, fabrics, and pattern play.” – Kelly Collier-Clark of Plot Twist Design
“Albert Hadley’s work still inspires!” – Rayman Boozer of Apartment 48
“Iris Apfel is iconic New York, more is more!” – Alvin Wayne of Alvin Wayne Interiors.
“The Carlyle without a doubt!” – Meg Lonergan of Meg Lonergan Interiors
“Museums, the Met, Guggenheim, and Moma are my go-to for inspiration.” – Swati Goorha of Swati Goorha Designs
