The 2019 Lyme/Old Lyme Kitchen Tour offers an opportunity to view seven beautiful kitchens inside distinctive private homes in Lyme and Old Lyme, Connecticut. Each of these kitchens offers something special for the tour-goer; most notably, the former home of a renowned Impressionist artist whose hand-painted panels remain on the doors and cabinets of the kitchen. Several of the homes are more than two centuries old, whose kitchens have been updated for modern living; another, an early twentieth-century caretaker's cottage, boasts an architect-designed contemporary kitchen. Two of the kitchens on the tour are in homes that sit directly on Hamburg Cove in Lyme, while another boasts marsh views of the Connecticut River.
Whether you are seeking ideas for your next kitchen remodeling project, or just have a fine appreciation for design and architectural beauty, there's much to see on the Lyme/Old Lyme Kitchen Tour, including "tablescapes" created by local professional designers. And with the colors of autumn dotting the lower Connecticut River Valley, the Lyme/Old Lyme Kitchen Tour will provide a great excuse to spend the day in the country!
Proceeds from the Lyme/Old Lyme Kitchen Tour will benefit the programs and capital projects of Child & Family Agency of Southeastern Connecticut, a private, nonprofit organization whose mission is to nurture children and families to develop their strengths through service, partnership, and advocacy. With offices in New London, Essex, and Groton, and a professional staff of 170, Child & Family Agency is the largest nonprofit children's service provider in southeastern Connecticut.
