JLB 2012 Show House – Bare Bones Preview

Boston-area Peeps:  Today is the last chance to preview the Potter Estate in Newton (the site of The Junior League of Boston 2012 Show House) before the Designers complete the rooms.  The finished house will be open to the public October 16th.

Place:  71 Walnut Park, Newton, MA  02458

Time:  3pm – 7:30pm

$5 Admission;  free for Junior League of Boston members (more info, here)

My space is the Back Entrance/Hallway which is situated in the middle of several rooms — the kitchen, first floor half bath, flower room, coat hall, dining room — and leads up the back stairwell (highlighted below):

Here’s a glimpse of what the space looks like:

One of the restrictions (to the interior of the premises) is that the natural (unpainted), original woodwork and historical finishes remain unchanged.  You’ll have to stop by to see the rest!

For those who don’t live in the Greater Boston area, or cannot attend the Preview, here are some links to see “before” photos taken by other participating designers:
