As a Parent Talk member, new mom, Junior League of Boston member, and one who enjoys all home design shows – “Flipping Out,” “Design Star,” “House Hunters,” “Design on a Dime”…you name it – I am so excited that Junior League of Boston is putting on a Show House this year!
Thirty-five prominent local design firms who have generously donated their time and materials are transforming the historic Potter Estate, on the grounds of the Jackson-Walnut Schools in Newton. A different local designer has decorated every room, and it is a fabulous time to walk around and see their different ideas! From one room to the next you can see modern, traditional, contemporary, antique, and avant-garde. Where else can one go to see all the best designers in the area showcasing their work and ideas, while also sipping a drink, talking with friends, and benefitting a good cause?
"I'm very excited to be part of this year's Show House, a fundraiser that's spanned an incredible 40 years," said Cindy Reuter, President of the Junior League of Boston. "The Show House enables us to showcase talented local designers and offer the public a look into the latest design trends with the proceeds going to the mission of the Junior League." The Junior League of Boston is an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.
Tickets to the event are $30 if bought through a member and can be used at any point from October 16 – November 18. Details on hours are below. All proceeds go towards the local charities Junior League of Boston works with!
