Join Lori Guyer on a tour of her in­spir­ing home filled with in­dus­trial finds.

A stock­room is clean, ef­fi­cient

and filled with the nec­es­sary items to re­plen­ish. So is Lori Guyer’s beau­ti­ful North Fork, Long Is­land, home. Its in­te­rior is scrubbed and pared down to its orig­i­nal bones. Lori has ex­posed beams, floor joists, wall studs and more, cre­at­ing an early mill or fac­tory feel. Fur­nish­ings are pared down and min­i­mal, fea­tur­ing in­dus­trial pieces that are func­tional and serve a use­ful pur­pose. Ev­ery­where you look light fills the spa­ces and re­flects off paint, wood and gen­tly worn sur­faces. The en­tire ef­fect is strik­ing and unique and def­i­nitely not “run of the mill.”

LEFT: White­washed brick means a hard- edged fire­place is now soft and not scene steal­ing. ABOVE: Ta­bles, fur­nish­ings and car­pets all pile monochro­matic tex­ture on tex­ture. BE­LOW: Wheels on fur­nish­ings are nat­u­ral in this en­vi­ron­ment as mov­ing items eas­ily sub­scribes to the “stock­room” men­tal­ity.
