A Perfect Room

You know you’re in the presence of great design work when years after it’s been completed you still hold it among your favorites. Such is the case with the farmhouse living room of D.C designer Darryl Carter, pictured below. Honestly, it gets better and better each year!


Known for his choice of organic materials, natural rugged finishes juxtaposed with fine Italian and English antiques, Darryl Carter created a fascinating room that tells its story with textures and  materials, and less with color. In fact, black and white and warm natural wood tones are the only instances of color yet never has a room felt more layered and interesting. He’s an inspiration for many young designers in the D.C area and around the world and it is my preferred way of wishing you a great weekend!
