This beautiful vintage glass-walled sunroom in a house on New York’s Long Island was surrounded on three sides by natural greenery.

But inside, the matriarch of the home chose the color scheme, and her favorite blues, yellows, and a shade of red-orange dominated the whole house. In this space, the striped sunroom decor stood out most of all for the yellows and reds — all on a crisp white backdrop.

Seen here as it was in 1969, a garden of color had been created with two bright patterns — vivid Roman stripes on the furniture, gargantuan polka dots on the rug. The throw pillows on the sofa matched their hues, but had unique patterns.

Because the room was used at night for adult conversation, the furniture was cozily grouped in a tight little island defined by the rug, thus freeing a sizable portion of the terrazzo floor to serve, by day, as the children’s playroom. (The inner wall, not seen here, was lined with toy chests.)


To provide interesting textures, the two taller tables were sheathed in white-painted carved bamboo, the low square table in a delicately stenciled white calf. All three tables were topped with transparent glass.

On the tall tables sat a pair of matching yellow ceramic lamps with plain white shades, and pretty pieces of coral were mounted on white stands.

Avid collectors of paintings and sculpture, the Steinbergs arranged their treasures so that each received full justice, but none was flaunted.
