Heart of the Home

The 5th Annual Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour to benefit the Wenham Museum, Saturday, October 13. For tickets to the tour, call the museum at 978-468-2377 or purchase online at www.wenhammuseum.org

Be inspired by nine extraordinary kitchens in Beverly Farms, Boxford, Hamilton, Wenham, Ipswich, and Manchester By-the-Sea on the 5th Annual Heart of the Home Kitchen Tour to benefit the Wenham Museum on Saturday, October 13 from 11am to 4pm. Visit traditional and contemporary homes that highlight interior design in the room that is the heart of every home—the kitchen.

Get the party started in an open-concept kitchen with plenty of room for guests at an oversized island and cocktail lounge!  Remodeling? Find inspiration in a kitchen honoring the home’s 1765 heritage with historical elements blended with the conveniences needed for a busy 21ST century family, and “Take Joy!” as a whimsical menagerie greets you in a bountiful garden as you enter into a retro 1940’s kitchen bursting with colorfully painted cabinets, Big Chill appliances, and a circus train traveling around the ceiling! Visitors will discover how families lived and cooked more than three centuries ago with a visit to the cooking hearth in the museum’s 17-century Claflin-Richard’s House.

Tour guests are encouraged to bring a donation of non-perishable food to the museum on the day of the tour. Food donations will benefit the North Shore Families serviced through Beverly Bootstraps. Donations may also be delivered to the museum at 132 Main Street, Wenham, MA now through October 15, 2012. A link to the list of the top ten food items needed is posted on the museum’s website.

The museum is grateful to event co-chair Yvonne Blacker: Designer and Marketing Director at Designer Bath, and to the event volunteers, homeowners and designers including Howell Custom Building Group, lmk interiors, ltd, Meadowview Construction, Northshore Kitchens Plus, Wilson Kelsey Design, Inc., New England Design Works, and Designer Bath and Salem Plumbing as well as additional kitchen tour sponsors Renewal by Anderson, and the Salem Five Charitable Foundation, all who made this event possible.

Tickets to the tour include admission to the museum currently featuring It’s a Snap! Community LEGO Art now open through October 21 followed by the Train Time 17: Model Train Exhibit, November 9 – February 24. Proceeds from the kitchen tour benefit the museum’s educational programs and exhibitions, which help to educate over 3,500 school children and 35,000 annual visitors. For tickets to the tour, call the museum at 978-468-2377 or purchase them online at www.wenhammuseum.org.

Wenham Museum

Do not miss the Wenham Museum special train exhibits! I think Arden could spend every day here looking at the 15+ giant train-scapes in gauges G-Z with buttons the kids can press to make the trains go. These are amazing and even feature a small torch-wielder cutting up old steam train parts with new diesel trains whizzing by. Downstairs there is a play area with a table of lincoln logs, playhouse, costumes, store stocked with 1950s play food items, typewriter, and rotary phone, among other things. They have book signings too and we were able to meet local author Kristin Kladstrup and have her sign our copy of The Gingerbread Pirates.
