The Junior League of Hartford is pleased to announce 64 Orchard Road in West Hartford as the location of the 2015 Decorators Show House. Show House is the signature fund raising event of the Junior League of Hartford and has raised over $1.5 million for its charitable projects and programs. This highly anticipated event occurs every three years. There is no similar event in Central Connecticut.
The Junior League takes over a notable home or estate in the Greater Hartford area and selects designers, local and regional, to makeover the interior spaces and surrounding grounds, a process that takes months to accomplish. During the month of May, the public is invited to view the grand home that has been transformed both inside and out. Funds are raised through the sale of tickets to tour the completed Show House, by special events associated with Show House, and by individual and corporate sponsorships.
Show House is more than a home tour, it is an experience. In the past, guests have been able to extend their visit and enjoy a catered lunch, shop at our boutique full of exclusive gift items, or purchase designer furnishings featured in the Show House.
Additionally, Show House anchors a season of social events for the Junior League and members of the public, all showcasing the home and grounds, and prominently recognizing the Show House sponsors.
