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…)

When one enters re:design, a new repurposed, modern and vintage furniture store in Southold, the eye is immediately drawn to a large galvanized steel shelf unit near the doorway.

The item, which sits atop spindly metal legs and has a wooden tabletop, is a striking piece of furniture. It’s also just one example of Rory Klinge’s craftsmanship.

“We did an estate buyout and that was in the garage,” Klinge said during an interview in the new Main Road space. “My son picked up the hairpin legs somewhere, which were perfect, and I had this old shuffleboard floor. The pieces were just meant to be together.” (more…)

Long Island’s upper fork is already well-known for its farms, vineyards and restaurants. Now, people are buzzing about its design aesthetic.

“The North Fork is characterized by its maritime and agricultural roots, making it an eclectic mix of casual and coastal style,” said Caitlin Flynn, co-owner of North Fork Design Company.

According to NFDC co-owner Elyse Parkhurst, the area’s design philosophy encompasses “timeless furniture” with simple lines and accents of reclaimed wood, industrial elements and nautical-inspired pieces.

“We utilize relaxed fabrics, light and breezy colors and natural stone and sea grass rugs, along with rustic wood and textural elements,” Parkhurst said. (more…)
