The lovely home of the Wechsler family in Hartford’s West End was the site for the Junior League of Hartford’s Decorator Show House 2012. The stately 1921 house made an inspiring backdrop for the work of some of Connecticut’s most talented designers. Here are a few of our favorite rooms.
A boyâs bedroom with a camping theme by Cynthia Mason Interiors is both plush and adventurous with walls and ceiling of canvas tenting and a mural by artist Patrick Ganino.

An upstairs room became a cozy sitting room. Sharon McCormick brought elegance to the space with new millwork, linen wallcovering and a ceiling painted to look like gilded leather.
A lavender ceiling glows above a dining room designed with an eclectic mix of antiques and Midcentury pieces by Peter Robbin and Robin Jones of Lafalce, Campbell, Robbin.
Bright white and luscious aqua perfectly suit the airy sun porch designed by Keatha McCue and Cynthia Kranz.
What little girl wouldnât love the sweet bedroom of pink and yellow on white designed by Jean Poulin?
