Saturday was the New York Junior League House Tour, the event that I have been planning with my committee for the past few months and anxiously waiting for! The New York Junior League is according to our mission statement “an organization of women committed to promoting voluntarism, developing the potential of women and improving communities through the effective action and leadership of trained volunteers.”
I recently joined the NY Junior League in the fall and this was my first big event that I have taken part of. I had a lot of fun putting together the House Tour with my committee and it was great to see all of our hard work pay off as well as raise money for the organizations that the League works with. We featured some amazing houses everything from a 5 story townhouse overlooking the East River to a downtown Greenwich Village loft designed by Joe Cangelosi to a fun Soho Bachelor pad designed by Kimberlee Paige Hanson to Nicole Cohen of Sketch42‘s modern family home. The tour featured 10 residences total and there was definitely something for everyone! If you missed it this time around don’t worry because the NYJL puts on a tour twice a year and you can catch a whole new round of fabulous Manhattan residences in the Fall. The artwork above was done by Kristen McGinnis, not only one is she one of the fearless leaders on the Home Design committee but also an interior designer whose work you may be familiar with!
