Reading about Woody House last weekend got me thinking more than usual about Long Island’s East End and its bucolic neighborhoods. Some years ago, long before my blogging days, I’ve pinned every single room of a project that has the triple threat design tag to it – architecture by Peter Pennoyer, interiors by Matthew Patrick Smyth and gardens by Edwina von Gal! Do you remember this home? It was a new build on Long Island’s East End shore and it was beautiful. With a fantastic location, the owners purchased an old shingle style home that was crumbling down and asked architect Peter Pennoyer to attempt a rescue. Despite their efforts, the old home couldn’t be saved so a new one was built in a similar spirit and style. Don’t you just love it when new homes feel like they’ve been around forever? As for the interiors, Manhattan designer Matthew Patrick Smyth created light-filled spaces with an eclectic mix of beach-style decor, prized family heirlooms and antiques.
The gardens have been replanted with native vegetation and as a result, the plantings look like they just happened to grow that way. Effortless and chic! Enjoy!
