Quogue New Modern by Austin Patterson Disston Architects

Today, we’re excited to share a new modern summer house from the stunning portfolio of Austin Patterson Disston Architects. Located in Quogue, New York, with a view of the bay from its rooftop terrace, this modern home offers secluded outdoor spaces and interiors that are at once crisp, light-filled and completely captivating.

“I would not say that the firm has a particular ‘cookie cutter’ style,” explains Mr. Disston. “I can tell you what others have said: our work has an intimate scale — our larger residences do not seem imposing, our interiors work well together and are exceptionally tailored in their material detail.”

We think you’ll agree that this home is the embodiment of Mr. Disston’s statement above.

Meanwhile, the dining room offers lots of room at the long trestle table and an intimate sitting room complete with fireplace–a most appealing combination.

New Modern Kitchen

Nearby, modern white cabinetry meets warm wood and historic elements to create a highly functional, but totally irresistible heart of the home.

Modern Dining Room Fireplace

A closer look at the dining room fireplace reveals historic design that is quite unexpected but works brilliantly in this modern home.

Modern Bedroom

The blue and white color palette continues into the bedroom that also merges a variety of light and dark woods. The large contemporary rug ties the whole room together nicely.

Modern Bathroom

In the bath, light filters down from a large skylight into the spacious bathing area that includes a deep soaking tub and open shower.

Modern Rooftop Terrace

The rooftop terrace is at once secluded and open to the sky, while affording a lovely view of the bay.

Modern Patio and Pool

Floor to ceiling glass walls can be rolled back for seamless access to outdoor living spaces and the pool from the living room, kitchen and dining room.

A Buckinghamshire Country Retreat by Staffan Tollgard Design Group

This weeks getaway takes us to Buckinghamshire in south east England. This county of England is known for its open countryside, its stunning views of nature, and various historic houses still used as private homes. With the hustle and bustle of daily life we were taken aback by the tranquility of this country style home designed by UK based Staffan Tollgard Design Group. It seems we aren’t the only ones wishing to get away, musicians such as Andrew Fletcher from Depeche Mode, Noel Gallagher of Oasis, and Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees, have all owned homes in this beautiful county.

While a very traditional British facade on the outside, the inside is filled with wanderlust.

Strong Asian influences can be seen in both art and statues throughout the home.

The combination of blue and white jars and accessories, worldly wooden furniture, and traditional curtains and upholstery, create quite the living room area.

Mid Century Chinese Chinoiserie can be found throughout the home, and make a big impression in the master bedroom.

Talk about a desk with a view! Splashes of red, and the intricate details carved into this desk are spectacular.

This stately domed hallway offers a view of the idyllic  British countryside.

Hope you enjoyed the DS getaway of the week, make sure to like us on Facebook for daily inspiration.

A Hidden Villa in the Heart of Malibu

Malibu, California is filled with sandy beaches, celebrity homes, and a whole lot of surfing! Only an hour away from the bustling city of Los Angeles, this affluent Beach city is known to have their fair share of grandiose homes, but we have neverseen a secluded Mediterranean paradise like this one. The creative mastermind behind this home is Robert Shapiro who is known famously as an arts philanthropist, art collector, and antiquarian. Join us as we tour Design Shuffle’s Getaway of the week.

 Hand plastered walls, a muted color palette, and stone floors add a subtle Mediterranean feel to this elegant living room.

One of the most amazing views we have seen in a while, this 20 foot wall is made almost entirely out of windows.

Moroccan Architectural details along with the long center mosaic transport you halfway around the globe.

This Turkish throw adds a subtle pop of color, and is without a doubt the center of attention in this master bedroom.

Comfy seating and a view to the immaculate garden, this is quite the office!

Long arches and lush gardens remind us of a Mediterranean castle.

This sofa had to be custom built to fit the space, and well worth it. We would never leave this cute little nook!

A private entrance to a private beach, what more could you ask for.

An Mid Century Home Marvel by Cure Design Group

Cure Design group, founded by Sarah Turner, is located in St. Louis Missouri. Thanks to its outstanding group of Interior Designers, they have had the honor to be showcased in the St. Louis Home Magazine, and various issues of the At Home magazine. Their philosophy is  listening to their clients and not infusing their own design style, but delivering based on their clients wants and needs.

This particular home was recently photographed for the At Home magazine and we even got to see a quick behind the scenes with the Interior Designer, Jacob Laws. He mentions that they wanted to preserve the architectural integrity of the house, while creating a modern feel, and the result was this Mid Century Home marvel. Join us as we tour this beautiful space.

Large windows create a natural source of light and allow you to enjoy nature, even if your inside!

“For the most part all of the lighting has a softer sensibility as opposed to the very clean straight lines of the house, especially the ceiling fixtures since most of the ceilings are vaulted or at an angle.” – Jacob Laws –

“Every space in the house does have some for of circular element or round element just so there was a little bit more movement and things weren’t so rigid and sterile and linear” – Jacob Laws –

Carefully curated accessories, and furniture, that create a modern twist.

A stunning foyer isn’t complete without a statement mirror and a unique entryway table.

A dark color palette works great in a room with white walls and exposed brick.

Not your average bathroom, this one boasts a unique, elegant, and dark wallpaper, and how can we not mention the gold gilded mirror.

” I’d say 70% of the house are all vintage finds that we refurbished or completely reassembled.”  – Jacob Laws –
