Design Diary: Jr. League Show House Boston

The 35th  Jr. League of Boston Show House in the Potter Estate in Newton took place in November 2012. I was able to round up a bunch of gorgeous photos and sketches. Many of the rooms were done by designers I’ve often collaborated with on stories for local publications. Each room is more beautiful than the next.

According to Wicked Local here are some details from two other Boston designer friends from whom I didn’t have the chance to get photos:

Paula and Kate McCusker of Theodore & Company converted the home’s former chapel into a blue and cream formal but relaxed living. They removed the old altar to expose a bay window for extra light. Artwork included a graphic black and white work by Picasso.

Kate Maloney Albiani designed an adorable nursery with tiny painted fairies on striped lavender walls. Details include double glass pulls on the built-ins, a poem made from old-fashioned reading cards, and a closet filled with tiny clothing.
