Our Story


Holiday Workroom was created and founded by Erin Swift.  Having worked as Creative Style Director at One Kings’ Lane, Market Editor at Architectural Digest and ELLE DECOR, a published author and continuing a career in interior styling, set design and creative direction for advertising and editorial clients alike, Erin is well-known for bringing her considerable art direction and passion for design to all of her clients’ projects.  As veteran New Yorkers, Erin and her team know the pains of transporting a Christmas tree across several blocks and up enumerable flights of stairs, of having to buy new ornaments because of lack of apartment storage space, and of wanting to create a warm and enchanting space for friends and family.  This is years in the making, and we're so excited to finally present it to you.

Erin Swift

Founder + Creative Director + all the other things too

Erin grew up just outside of New York City, lives in Brooklyn, and has resided in almost every neighborhood south of 21st street since she’s moved here. With over 12 years experience in creating magic, Erin has worked at top magazines, for the world’s leading corporations, and with the industry's most talented creatives. She crafted the Holiday Workroom idea about 3 years ago and now serves as the Founder and Creative Director. When she’s not envisioning how to make your holiday more legendary, she’s eating heaps of candy and daydreaming of pristine beaches and her next trip around the world.



Candice Goor

Marketing + PR

Candice was raised just outside of the city, and currently resides in Williamsburg. Having previously worked in consumer marketing at Condé Nast, she lives and breathes all that is branding, from eye-catching original content to authentic tone of voice to aesthetically-designed emails.  This time of year, when she’s not thinking of dazzling Christmas trees, she’s most likely having coffee at Gotan, reading the next book in the Neapolitan series, or trying to convince her roommates to adopt a cat.
