A designer show house opens this weekend at the Suffolk County Vanderbilt Museum in Centerport -- but not at the storied main residence. Instead, the event will take over the Normandy House, a French-Norman structure just across the street from the museum's gates. Here's a peek at what you'll find at the 19 indoor and outdoor spaces at the event.
