Junior League of Boston 2017 Designer Show House

Oh, how I love this event! I recently attended the 2017 Boston Designer Show House press day. Last year, I blogged about Boston Show House 2016, so couldn’t wait to indulge my every interior design fantasy yet again.

The 2017 Designer Show House

This year, the Junior League of Boston partnered with the Belmont Women’s Club to transform their headquarters located at 661 Pleasant St. Belmont, MA. The historic building, the 1853 William Flagg Homer House, is set picturesquely on a hill overlooking the Boston skyline.

Boston-area interior designers and landscapers from as far as New Hampshire and Maine came together to transform over 20 rooms/spaces. Their elegant, eclectic and even edgy results are now on display through November 5, 2017 -Wednesdays to Sundays.

If you admire fine design, this is a trip worth making. It is a full experience of color, texture, style, innovation and pure decorative pleasure.

Tickets are $40 at BostonShowHouse.com. Proceeds support the mission of the Junior League of Boston.

While each and every room of the Designer Show House is unique, one trend I noticed was the presence of highly stylized bookcases. The featured photo and two below are perfect examples.

Kim Macumber Interiors

Kim Macumber of Kim Macumber Interiors did an incredible job turning a tiny pantry into a Parisian garden-inspired environment. From the hand-painted floral ceiling to the copper, flower petal sink, I’d be happy to prep dinner in “Le Petite Pantry” any time.

Boehm Graham Interior Design

To my friends in Bedford, NH you’ll be interested to know that mother-daughter design team Kacey Graham and Micheale Boehm of Boehm Graham Interior Design took on the transformation of “The Toasting Room.” This bright and beautifully styled room was one of my favorites featuring white and gray tones with pops of orange.
