When I purchased the Boulevard Showhouse, one of our biggest challenges was the windows. They desperately needed to be replaced. But because the home is historically protected, it was a trickier process. The preservation society requires all renovations to remain true to the historic look of the home. So, I needed historically accurate windows that were also modern-era, energy efficient. , thankfully came in with the perfect design. They presented it to , and now I have gorgeous windows that meet the needs of the preservation society and hot Houston weather.

We found these to-die-for Fifth Avenue Holiday windows thanks for one of our clients (with fabulous taste!). Pictured above are only 3 of the 5 exquisite window designs recently unveiled. Click to read the inspired article from 5th/58th!
Act I is described as a “black and white homage to Marilyn Monroe in Billy Wilder’s Some Like It Hot (complete with silver ukulele) featuring a bird’s eye view of fashion from Marc Jacobs, 3.1 Phillip and Elie Saab. The red window, Act IV represents the Daredevil Act: “Our Daredevil Act, is Fifth Avenue’s novelty act featuring a runway look from Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen’s Spring 2013 runway collection. As David said, every show needs a novelty act, and ours highlights 24 plaster dogs performing every trick under the sun.” Lastly, but certainly not least, Act V “the result of an idea brewing over the past year: a giant mirrored, rotating kaleidoscope… Approximately 1,000 individually beveled mirrors were used to create this kaleidoscope set into motion by 7 separate rotating motors. an homage to Busby Berkeley’s overhead kaleidoscopic camera shot seen in Footlight Parade.”
You can expect these beautiful displays at 5th Avenue to be up until January 3rd! Which is your favorite and why?
