Where does a New York socialite and former p.r. maven go to raise a family? Well in this case Emilia Fanjul Pfeifler and her husband Brian moved their 3 children and a few dogs to the very posh area of Locust Valley, NY - located about an hour outside of NYC on the North Shore of Long Island. Locust Valley is known for breeding a well heeled set who at one point in history were known for their distinctive accent called - "Locust Valley Lock Jaw".
I happened upon these photos on Vogue's website of Emilia's beautifully decorated 1912 built Colonial home with a gravel driveway. (note...must have a house with a gravel drive at some point in my life). It took 3 years to renovate the home into an elegant but livable family home. She worked with interior designer Frank de Biasi on the home. Elegant timeless furnishings in a cool blue gray color palette. I like.
Would you move to the suburbs to live here?
