Some celebrity assistance

We collaborated with the inimitable Olivia Wilde on the interior design of the home. Needless to say, working with her was an amazing experience. She was such a pleasure to work with: humble, funny, intelligent, and kind.In October, The Home that Runs on Dunkin’ was brought up to the iconic Washington Square Park in Manhattan where it was opened up to the public for a week.

The Home that Runs on Dunkin’ has been featured on the Today Show, CBS Nightly News, and in over 50 different publications including Architectural Digest, Ad Week, Curbed, and Food and Wine to name a few.

The whole idea for the project was dreamt up by the Hill Holliday Agency. They were delightful to work with, and we will always be grateful that they choose us for this truly remarkable project. All of the video was directed and produced by Element CC.
