Favorite Homes: Long Island Preppy

Inside & Out

This chic yet whimsical home on Long Island offers a fresh take on coastal style. “Everything about this Amagansett home rocks—the preppy-casual style; the use of whites, blues, and tons of stripes; and all the airy spaces. The indoor/outdoor dining area is my favorite—the color palette is so cheerful and bright. I love that this room can be multi-seasonal; removable glass panels allow you to eat on the porch all year long.” –Kristen Felder, Associate Photo Editor
