Beauty and humor are at the heart of Swiss-born artist Garance’s work. 

Her vivid canvases tell stories of her experiences and mood. The same can be said for her studio — a 6,000-square-foot former supermarket in New Suffolk.

An eclectic menagerie of lighthearted ornamental trinkets is visible from every vantage point in the space. Each piece represents a life well lived. Reclaimed finds from the local recycling center and yard sales are painted with imaginative patterns and multi-color plastic ribbons replace doors, lightly brushing against your shoulders as you walk from room to room. 

“Like they have in Italy,” Garance explained. “Color is the most important thing in life.”  (more…)

Located just a hop, skip and a jump from New Suffolk Beach, this four bedroom, two and a half bathroom home comes with stunning waterfront views.

Nestled on just over an acre of land, the property has a small pond in the backyard, adding to the “uniqueness of the home,” said listing agent Marie Beninati, of Beninati Associates.

It also offers a prime spot to enjoy a cup of coffee and the paper (The Suffolk Times, of course) in the morning.

“It has a wonderful porch that connects the master suite to the outdoors,” Beninati said. “It’s a really lovely spot to sit and enjoy and congregate with your family or friends.” (more…)
