HISTORIC QUOGUE, NEW YORK BEACH HOUSE

It is considered a beach house, but it's old, East Coast style.  I really enjoy this designer, CeCe Barfield Thompson, whose rooms I think I've posted here before.

I like the way you can peek into that moody dining room, from the bright sitting room.

The other end of the spacious living room, a chess game set up and ready to go...

This must be another sitting room, with a bit warmer palette.  Cozy.

Yummy slate or bluestone floors in powder room.

There are more standard, luxurious bathrooms in the house, but I like this simple, slant-ceiling one with the penny tile floors.

I imagine very few modern beach houses have fun, quirky attic hideaways like this:

Despite the age of the house, the tradtional touches everywhere, and the antiques, it just seems fresh, unpretentious, and charming--  a good seaside respite.

I love this!   I find the light fixtures interesting, as for the decor, I wouldn't have to change much at all if I was moving in Smiley Happy

This is absolutely lovely. I don't think I would change a thing. I love the colors used, the flow, and the furniture compliments the older structure, floors etc.

I would love to see the exterior and outdoor surroundings. I am wondering if it is waterfront.

I would change some colors, but otherwise it is charming.

I love the living room, especially the sofas style and pattern. Beautiful room, nice mix of colors. Very New England home.

I think it's lovely. It looks like a home my mother would have decorated and lived in.. a cozy feel to it.

 

I love the wide plank flooring, all the beadboard walls, and wall- papers. And I'm especially drawn to both bathrooms !!
