The Junior League of Boston's 2012 Show House is underway at The Potter Estate on the grounds of the Jackson-Walnut Park Schools in Newton. The Show House is open until Sunday, November 18th, if you haven't had a chance to visit yet. I went on Sunday just to see this room by Frank Hodge, one of my favorite designers. It's an elegant, spacious study with chocolate brown Venetian plaster on the walls, a fireplace, sitting area and beautiful art and objects.

Not visible in the photo above is this striking painting by Victoria Adams over a small sofa in the sitting area. Frank has featured Adams' paintings in his designs before and you can read about them both in earlier posts here and here.

It's a stand-out room not to be missed. The Show House features rooms by other notable Boston-area designers as well. Details about the Show House plus tickets and directions can be found at the Junior League of Boston's Show House website here. Enjoy!
