Yesterday evening at the D&D Building in New York City, the Holland & Sherry showroom opened its doors to designers and industry friends for a look at interior designer Sandra Nunnerley’s debut book Sandra Nunnerley Interiors.
A book all about her design inspiration, Nunnerley flipped through the pages with guests, explaining where her designs began and how her book came to be.
“I didn’t want to do a book that had just one project after the other,” she said. “I wanted to do a book that showed my vision and inspiration behind the work, and it takes you through my journey. It features a cross section of work spanning 20 plus years.”
Guests enjoyed cocktails and light bites while perusing new Holland & Sherry offerings—some of which were also featured in the book (pictured below) and were a source of inspiration for Nunnerley.
“I find inspiration when I travel, and it could also come from something as simple as walking down the street and seeing a wonderful fruit stand,” said Nunnerley. “I wanted designers to understand that vision and inspiration can be simple and it’s everywhere and it’s in our everyday lives. Inspiration is in the clothes we wear, in the textiles we pick up—it’s in so many different places and we just need to be aware of it, and that’s what I wanted the book to express.”
After soaking the inspiration in, guests were able to get their hands on a signed copy of Sandra Nunnerley Interiors.

“The books being very well received,” said Nunnerley. “It was truly a labor of love and I’m very pleased.”
