The organizers of the North Fork Designer Show House, a charitable event in which local home and landscape designers join together to transform a shabby 19th-century farmhouse into a dwelling worthy of a magazine spread, are at it again.
But following the success of two previous events — one last August and a Christmas-themed show house in December — they face the dual challenge of wowing returning guests and attracting new visitors to the 12-room home, which is again on loan from Cutchogue Presbyterian Church.
“We had to figure out how to make it a draw for new people,” said Kate DiGregorio of the event’s organizing committee. “It had to be 100 percent different.”
