Finally made it to The North Fork Designer Show House in Cutchogue LI today which runs until September 6th and is located next to the village green on Main Street, showcasing the interior design talents of some 22 local designers.
The main designer show house is hosted by the Cutchogue Presbyterian Church and this year it’s hostess is Jessica Lee, who donated her beautiful outdoor area and barns creating an updated twist on the show house experience. I was so inspired by Conni Cross’s “Glamp Tent”, Lori Guyer from White Flower Farmhouse and Debbie & Morgan Gildersleeve, Renee’s located in the annex barn area! Enjoy the photos and for more information please go to NorthForkDesignerShowHouse.com

Textiles and Texture…a mix of “Rustic Glam” was prevalent throughout many of the showrooms this market at High Point.
Textured wood, fur accent pillows, sculptural lamp bases, mixed substrates like metal and wood, painted textured tables, fabric and metal lighting, teak and concrete stools, pecky cypress wood, feminine prints paired with texture, lighting with natural elements as well as feathered and fringed pillows.
The diversity of texture both on hard surfaces like wood and metal, as well as soft surfaces like textiles and rugs was creative and updated offering designers many choices in style and substrate.
Looking back at my lifetime of memories I cherish those times that we actually took the time to capture life in the making.
Back in the day of film, sepia prints, and art filled family photos, images were heartfelt and meaningful……I am happy to see a resurgence of this sensibility and style!
Everytime I see this image it brings me back to that day on the beach with the people I love most in this world!
Keep making those memories as creative as you can and they will last a lifetime.
