Quiet Rooms - Darryl Carter Style

I love a Darryl Carter room. His designs offer one a place to enjoy, "the quite room". In Washington, DC where Mr. Carter's design business is located, the pursuit of power can leave one regularly exhausted, there must be a place to find serenity and solitude. These rooms, mostly in Carter's Virginia country getaway offer such an escape. Upon entering the house the eye and soul can rest in the many shades of white. This home is full of natural light and most other lighting comes from Mr. Carter's collection by Urban Electric Company. Other Darryl Carter projects include his new furniture collection with Thomasville to launch in stores this fall and an upcoming coffee table book, "The New Traditional".

It is interesting how Darryl Carter's style has evolved over the years. He has always been minimal and classic but now his farm house has a more causal feeling. I think he was an attorney before he was a designer. Is that right? Maybe just a finance guy? Anyway, I can't wait to see his book. Do you know when it comes out?

Susan: The book should be out this August. I also can't wait to get my hands on it. I had the opportunity to interview for a job at his firm this summer...Didn't work for me...The DC traffic is horrible from Fairfax Cty. Mr Carter was an attorney in DC... I believe he went to law school at Georgetown...Yes he has evolved over time... Fay

Love, love this collection of photos. I would say that the New Traditional look is very prominent here in Houston. All these rooms are wonderful.
