The current issue of Veranda magazine features the North Shore Long Island home of a family of five (and their 3 dogs) who vacation here on the weekends and in the summer. The interiors of the home were designed by New York designer Frank de Biasi. Intrigued by the images in Veranda, I quickly took to de Biasi’s website to see if he featured the home. This post includes a combination of portfolio pictures as well as those from the magazine in order to provide a more comprehensive look at the home. Let’s take a tour, shall we?
I am a sucker for a classic colonial and love the stone walkway. But it’s too bad that the front door is offset. I prefer a more symmetrical look. The beautiful parquet flooring is from a Paris flea market and the design of the staircase takes my breath away.
The living room is probably one of my favorite rooms in the home. From top to bottom, I love everything about this room. The kitchen featured above is from Veranda, while the one below is from the designer’s portfolio. Isn’t it interesting what a little professional staging can do?
Our own guest bedroom is outfitted with a daybed so I love to see how other people incorporate a daybed into their own design. I am particularly fond of those with a more sophisticated, grown-up look like this one.
Copper tub number two….
If this were my home I would love to see a beautiful pool installed on the vast green lawn. But in the spring and summer, it might be a great place to set up a game of croquet. If I wasn’t swimming or playing yard games, I would spend time in the large greenhouse that is used for growing orchids. I am sure I could easily call this place home and never be bored.
