Darryl Carter

Darryl Carter is another favorite designer of mine, his taste is perfection is every way.  Darryl seamlessly mixes modern with classical elements, creating individual comfort and timeless elegance.

I love how he has used this gateleg library table... it can be used as a reading table or for dining.

Darryl is able to find pieces that serve as multiple functional designs.

Nothing I love more than vintage Louis... and that former worktable serving as a decorative sideboard is perfection!!!

I can't get enough of these gateleg tables, they add the perfect touch of vintage.

The landscape painting and that lamp coupled with white walls is so dreamy.  You can never go wrong with white, it serves as the perfect envelope.

... once again the white walls and painted white floors are the perfect backdrop for this room.
White makes everything POP!

I love how Darryl left the old leather chair in its worn look.

Loving the period mantel in a black stain, It creates the perfect focal point.

So simple, but so interesting... something as simple as two sconces and one great book can create so much interest.  I love the small details, it's what makes a room.

Darryl always uses the perfect aesthetics!

Darryl created shelves that were fashioned after an Italian Etagere.

One of my favorite kitchens of all time!  The stacked wood adds so much texture to this room.

These light fixtures are incredible!!  They are former factory lights, suspended from metal utility pipes.  WOW!!

Can this guy think out of the box or what?  That mirror suspended between the two windows, the demilune console converted into a vanity, and that light fixture... eye candy!!!
Darryl you're my style guru!

The book The New Traditional is a for sure favorite!
Have a wonderful week!

  2. I'm with you on the gateleg tables~ they are precious. I almost went with one in our family room but decided it wouldn't really suit our entertaining needs like a long rectangular table would. Those old factory light are incredible too.
    Happy weekend to you Desiree!

  6. Thanks for such a gorgeous post! I am near-obsessed with these white/taupe/linen/burlap/brown color schemes right now; they are so restful and classic. I just adore that daybed...I dream of having a piece like that someday! And that old table topped with marble is so divine. I have an old drafting table that I made my parents carry with them from house to house for years and now it functions as an island in my kitchen; the top wood veneer is split and I've been toying with the idea of getting a custom butcher block top for it, but now I think I want to top it with gorgeous stone like that!
