Blueprint CT Home Welcomes ASAP!....15% of the sales will go to raising funds to continue the mission that no child is ever turned away from an opportunity that encourages them to think creatively, ask questions, and explore possibilities.
When we honor children’s imagination, invite them to create, encourage them to take risks, and trust their resourcefulness, they will become the empowered and resilient adults the world really needs.

Holiday Open House
December 2nd – Book Event & Mimosas
11:00am - 2:00pm
Meet the powerhouse creative Nora Murphy author of Nora Murphy Country House Style and founder of Nora Murphy Country House. Nora will discuss how to create her approachable and authentic style in your own country home, plus give tons of holiday decorating tips. Buy a copy of the book or bring your own to have it signed by Nora. Books are $35 at the store.
Nora Murphy has turned her passion for country house style and its embodiment—her own home in Newtown, Connecticut—into a multimedia juggernaut. Her blog, website, e-magazine, strong presence on social media, and increasing visibility in print media and on TV have earned her a devoted following all over the country. Now she has distilled the essence of her knowledge about country house style and how to achieve it in this irresistible volume. The first part of the book lays out the universal elements of the style; the second reveals how she has incorporated these elements into her own home; and the third shows how the elements of this comfortable, comforting, easy aesthetic and approach to life can be applied in different ways and in different locations to striking, individual effect. Five homes, each of which expresses a unique take on the style, are featured. Part primer, part wish book, Nora Murphy’s CountryHouse Style is all inspiration.
3:00pm – 7:00pm
