A New York
Holiday

This year, David Yurman invites you to step into the famed Carlyle hotel and discover
the magic of a New York holiday. Opened in 1930 on a luxurious stretch of Manhattan's
Madison Avenue, The Carlyle is an Upper East Side landmark. And nestled
within it is another classic NYC destination—Bemelmans Bar.

Named for Ludwig Bemelmans of Madeline book fame, who painted its
lighthearted murals, Bemelmans is a storied piano bar beloved by celebrities and
locals alike. It made the perfect backdrop for DY brand ambassadors Scarlett
Johansson and Henry Golding to showcase our holiday jewelry collections.

In the elegantly appointed piano bar that now bears his name, Ludwig Bemelmans
hand-painted these lighthearted murals of Central Park. Rather than be paid for his
art, it is rumored that Bemelmans exchanged his work for a year and a half of
accommodations at The Carlyle. Today, this timeless artwork are an homage to a
bygone era, and a reminder that our imaginations are just a brushstroke away.

transport the product into a whole artistic
world. That’s the exciting part.”
