We’re weeks off from blossoming fields of lavender, but you can get an early taste of the beauty to come at Lavender by the Bay’s newly redesigned farm stand.

The popular East Marion lavender farm enlisted White Flower Farmhouse owner and designer Lori Guyer to reimagine the existing 800-square-foot farm stand into a welcoming space representative of the North Fork.

Customers at local shops like White Flower Farmhouse in Southold, have marveled the last couple years over the work of artist Treva Elwood of Cutchogue.

Using a sewing machine and her own two hands, Elwood crafts beautiful stuffed animals that have become a great North Fork holiday gift item for folks looking to share a locally crafted product.

See more of her work at etsy.

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…)

Sisters Laura Hansen and Susan Hansen Fasano are bringing their country chic style to Main Road in the form of their pop-up store, Pearl Cottage, which opens today.

“This is really a culmination of what we like, rustic and refined,” Susan said. “We mix in a little bit of the new amongst the old.” (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…)
