A detailAmong the most beautiful spaces at the Normandy Manor Show House in Centerport, Long Island, is a dining room by Kate Singer. The manor was designed in 1917 by New York City architects Warren & Wetmore, who were most noted for their design of Grand Central Terminal. It was built for the superintendent of the Vanderbilt estate to use as his own quarters (the architects also designed William K. Vanderbilt II’s 24-room Spanish Revival mansion and other buildings on the estate, which Vanderbilt called Eagle’s Nest).

Kate Singer, a talented designer based in Huntington, Long Island, created the jewel box of a room by fitting it out with a mix of new and antique furnishings and accented in shades of amethyst, plum, grays and browns. The space features curtains and upholstery made from luscious fabrics from Zoffany-Sanderson-Harlequin, light fixtures from Visual Comfort Lighting, and custom millwork by Master Craft Installations as seen in these photographs by John Bessler.
