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…)

We recently toured the revamped Bedell Cellars Tap Room at Corey Creek and fell in love with the new style. Designed with White Flower Farmhouse owner Lori Guyer, the new space features bright colors, reclaimed furniture and lots of North Fork specific décor.

With rosé on tap, charging stations and a lush yard perfect for yard games, we kinda don’t want to ever leave.  OK, so you can’t live at Corey Creek, but you can recreate the style in your home. We caught up with Guyer to talk about how to incorporate some of these touches in your personal space. (more…)
