Near & Far Aid to hold annual house tour

Near & Far Aid will feature five homes in Westport and Fairfield's Greenfield Hill and Southport areas in its 2012 Designer House Tour to be held 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, May 4.
Houses will be seen in the following order on the tour, giving an inside look at these professionally-decorated houses:
"Intersecting History and Contemporary Art in SoPo," Fairfield's Southport area: The exterior of this circa-1810 Southport Village home features a white picket fence and lacy posts on a painted porch, while the interior, despite an 1840 addition, boasts the original fireplace with warming oven, original paneling and woodworking details and some of the original glass panes. The home's decor includes a gallery of contemporary furnishings and art, created and lived in by designer Yvonne Ferris, who won Connecticut Cottages & Gardens "Innovation in Interior Design" award two years in a row.
