The Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour, now in its 18th year, will present a series of events under the umbrella of “Design Wellesley” to highlight the extensive design community within Wellesley.
The 2018 Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour, which will be held on May 5, will be the culmination of a month-long celebration of the local architects, design experts, artists and retailers that make Wellesley a premiere design destination.
All Design Wellesley events will support the mission of the Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour: giving back to the community. Each year the Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour raises money for scholarships for local students and grants for area nonprofits. Last year was the most successful Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour in the event’s history, with more than $56,000 raised.
The Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour is produced by the Wellesley Hills Junior Women’s Club (WHJWC).
This year’s Design Wellesley events schedule is as follows:
April 27-29: Wellesley Square Merchants Association will host a “Design Wellesley” shopping event, featuring participating retailers Clever Hand Gallery, Comina, Florijn Home, European Manor, Isabel Harvey, London Harness, Page Waterman Fine Framing and Wellesley Books
April 28: Sip and Shop from 3-5 p.m. at the Curating Lifestyle event with Wellesley artist Carolyn Mackin at the Wellesley location of Marcus
May 3-4: Fine art consultant Libby Silvia of ArtStyle will host an open house
May 5: The Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The 2018 Wellesley Kitchen and Home Tour will showcase six homes where guests will be invited to visit the entire first floor and outside spaces, while enjoying gourmet bites and shopping at pop-up boutiques featured at each home. Architects, interior designers and/or contractors will also be on hand to answer questions specific to the home.
Tickets will be available at local Design Wellesley events, at Roche Bros. and at online beginning on April 9.
