Long Island Beach House

Modern meets Victorian Interiors – In the dunes of Long Island, Robert A.M. Stern Architects and designer Steven Gambrel join forces to craft a Shingle Style stunner that melds traditional warmth with contemporary elegance.

The atmosphere of the ocean is brought inside the home with a tranquil beach color palette of light blue, aqua and turquoise.
