White Flower Farmhouse owner Lori Guyer has transformed the Southold Historical Society’s Ann Currie-Bell House for the organization’s first Home for the Holidays Show House fundraiser.

Built in 1901, the late Victorian-style house served as the childhood home to Ann Currie-Bell, the historical society’s founder. She later moved back into the home with her husband, Tom, and lived there until her death in 1964. The home is now owned by the Southold Historical Society.

Guyer has infused her signature style and numerous decorations from her personal collection into the space with historically accurate holiday decorations.


We sent photographer David Benthal inside to capture that holiday magic.

The tour will continue on Sunday, Dec. 3, from 1 to 4 p.m. Entry is $10 per person for adults and free for children. Tickets can be purchased at the door or in advance by visiting the Southold Historical Society office. (more…)

While visiting a furniture sale held by the Southold Historical Society this past summer, an antique wooden cabinet caught the eye of interior designer Lori Guyer.

When Guyer, the owner of White Flower Farmhouse in Southold, inquired about the price of the cabinet, she was told she could have it for free on one condition: She had to agree to decorate the Ann Currie-Bell House for the historical society’s first Home for the Holidays Show House fundraiser.

“We have always decorated the house for the candlelight tour the day after Thanksgiving,” explained Karen Lund-Rooney, executive director of Southold Historical Society. “We thought this year — since Lori is decorating it for the very first time and she’s well known for her good eye for decorating — we would open it up as a show house for the general public and have an opportunity for people to see the decorations and hear a little bit about the history of the house.” (more…)
