2003 Decorators' Show House
Sponsored by Junior League of Buffalo / The Buffalo News

Photographs were taken on January 21, 2003 -- while basic interior renovation was still taking place -- and before 50 decorators applied their art to transform the building into a show house.

Special thanks to owners Gerald and Natalie Schaffer, Intern Architect Thomas P. Breen, and Show Chairwoman Patty O'Brien for their cooperation and assistance.
