The two-part series, YOU ARE CORDIALLY INVITED, extends an engraved invitation to viewers, welcoming them as guests in impressive privately owned estates containing distinguished collections of artwork, furniture and other design elements.
Host Holly Holden explores these extraordinary houses first-hand, strolling through the gardens, walking the halls, and viewing the details that make each house so inviting and timeless.
Holly colorfully illuminates the most interesting aspects of each house, drawing on more than 25 years of experience as a professional designer of classic, high-end interiors.
Selecting examples within each house, she demonstrates fundamental aspects of classic interior design while sharing her personal secrets for creating rooms of distinction.
On Part 2, travel to Blenheim Palace, a monumental country house located in Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, that serves as the principal residence of the Dukes of Marlborough.
“I am so pleased to be able to act as a tour guide for public television audiences across America…and along the way offer design tips viewers can use in their own homes,” said Holden. “I had the honor of exploring Highclere Castle and Blenheim Palace, including their incredible grounds and gorgeous furnishings, and I learned fascinating things about their cultural and historical significance – not to mention what it’s like to live and entertain there. I’m excited to share what I learned from the homeowners who so graciously welcomed me, and I hope the viewers have as much fun following my journey as I had taking it!”
