Happy Friday, cuties! I have such a special event recap to share with you this week! As you know, I’ve been working on so many fun projects out East this summer with my team at Kathy Kuo Home Southampton! Our most recent venture was participating in the Summer 2022 Holiday House Hamptons Annual Tabletop Event at Topping Rose House in Bridgehampton!
The event took place on July 20, 2022, and ticket sales went to benefit breast cancer research and prevention. I am so excited to share our KKH tabletop details, as well as some fun images from the event–including some of my favorite tablescapes from my fellow designers–and also share why Holiday House is an organization I am very proud to work with.
The Holiday House Mission
Founded in 2008 by the oh-so-amazing interior designer and breast cancer survivor Iris Dankner, Holiday House is an interior design showhouse where top interior designers and lifestyle brands come together for special events to showcase their design work and raise funds for breast cancer research and prevention through the Breast Cancer Research Foundation (BCRF).
Iris is a true inspiration–she currently sits on the board of the BCRF and she made Holiday House the designer show house in New York City to benefit a breast cancer organization. Since 2008, Holiday House has raised over $1 million for the cause!
“In short, it was both an honor and a lot of fun to be included in Holiday House’s annual Hamptons showcase because it combined two of my favorite things: design and giving back to a meaningful cause!”
To mark the occasion, our Design Team worked tirelessly to craft a tablescape that was equal parts elegance and whimsy, featuring some of my fave pieces from Juliska, Oly Studio, Catavento, Loloi, Arte Italica, and more.

Celebrating Tabletop Design & Supporting Breast Cancer Research
Aside from getting to craft the tabletop design of my dreams in support of a worthy cause, the best part of the Holiday House Hamptons Interior Design Showcase was getting to see the beautiful work from my fellow design pros, and getting a chance to chat with them all about our sources of inspiration, industry trends, and tricks of the trade.
Along with yours truly, this summer’s Holiday House lineup included ABC Carpet & Home, Abundant Habitat, Amal Kapen Interiors, Ashley Stark Home, Elsa Soyars Interiors, Evan Mason Designs, Hidden Gem NY, Katie White Interiors, Sage & Madison, Sarah Lederman Interiors, Sea Green Designs, The Lewis Design Group, The Rinfret Group, Unlimited Earth Care by Frederico Azevedo, and Weston Table.

A Perfect Hamptons Evening at Topping Rose House
Finally, I can’t say enough about what a dream the Topping Rose House was as a setting for this event. Featuring historic architecture and breathtaking grounds and landscaping–not to mention the chicest pool area–this property was the epitome of a serene summer evening in the Hamptons.
It was such a treat to explore different areas as we took in all of the different tabletop set-ups and just mix and mingle indoors and out.
“I loved seeing my tablescape set against the rustic Topping Rose barn, which is actually a historic structure original to the property and carefully restored for use as an event venue.”
