    Founded three years ago to benefit Susan G Komen for the Cure, Holiday House NYC presented by Traditional Home is a designer show house held in a historic mansion on the Upper East Side of Manhattan.

    This special event features top designers, who each choose a holiday or special moment in life as an inspiration for their design. This year, interior designer Suzanne Eason, dreamed up a hauntingly luxurious room entitled, "Dark and Stormy, A Cautionary Tale of Halloween," which weaves Halloween motifs with high design.

    The design, which features deep colours and lush textures, was inspired by Edgar Allen Poe's dark and dramatic "The Raven."

    On the ceiling, Poe's "The Raven" meets Hitchcock's "The Birds." Trove's Indi pattern, which is a graphic tribute to the luminary Hitchcock, can be found circling a crystal chandelier, providing an edgy aesthetic and room-expanding effect. Indi, which feels like an action shot of a flock of birds in flight, is formed by groups of blackbirds in motion, randomly falling over one another, and representing the splendor of the natural world. This pattern, which conveys a dark and genuine beauty, fits seamlessly with Eason's concept- it is both haute and haunting, bold and beautiful.
