Plascon House Tour: Long Island Summer Living

Vintage, relaxed and packed with charm, this Long Island home belongs to a photographer with a keen interest in rustic and vintage pieces. This two-bedroom beach cottage is the perfect place to unwind and enjoy a slower pace of life.

The whitewashed rooms with found objects, charmingly weather-beaten antiques, and vintage textiles. There’s a seafaring feel to the space: Americana accents meet nautical materials meet eclectic objects found on far-flung voyages. It’s also deeply comfortable, as any weekend retreat should be.

Things are kept simple with resting artwork and a layered look achieved by placing objects on top of a stack of books or resting against a chair.

A wall of stacked logs, a sawhorse turned side table, a sun-faded flag: Collected antiques and weathered finishes lend laid-back Americana flair to the living room. We love the incorporation of a gallery wall above the couch – adding interest and monochromatic charm to this space.

This antique French daybed is one of the owner’s favourite pieces. He explains: “I remember finding it at small shop in Riverhead—it had been sitting in a barn. The fabric was original French ticking that I ended up stripping off and dyeing in indigo. It sits in a nook in the sunroom and is the best spot for a summer afternoon nap.”

A riveted chrome mirror lends nautical charm to the bathroom, accented with found coral and an artfully paint-splattered shower curtain. White subway tiles keep the look bright and fresh. The owner finds inspiration in the Japanese wabi sabi aesthetic, which prescribes an acceptance of imperfection and impermanence.
