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.

New Modern Home

Blue and white set against natural wood brings a chic coastal look to the home’s living room.

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.

New Year, New Home: Thinking Outside the Box

With 2014 fast approaching, we begin to wonder what we have accomplished this year, and even more importantly what great goals we have for the next year.  This year has been a fruitful one for interior design, and with so much inspiration readily at our disposal things are starting to look a little cookie cutter. A new year is a great time to embrace a great change and why not start with our homes. Check out these 6 ways to think outside the box in 2014, and create one awe inspiring home that is far from ordinary.

Floors, we all have them, but we rarely do anything to them. This wood pattern really makes this room really stand out.

You want an old world charm in your living room? Don’t worry this isn’t actual plaster, its just a very awesome, simple to adhere, wallpaper.

If you don’t already 2014 is the year to embrace color, be bold and mix pinks with yellows and oranges.

Sometimes in order to think outside the box we need to create a box. In this case bare wall can turn  into a  beautiful closet space, no furniture needed.

That old dresser you have laying around, use it! There are so many easy DIY videos to guide you through sanding and staining your old furniture, the time is now.

One last outside the box idea that is absolutely simple is painting your door, whether its a fun color like this pink door, or even a black one with white details.
