Interior Decor Books by Darryl Carter

When there’s a choice between new and old furniture (or even new and old houses, sometimes), I’m drawn to the solidity, detail, and character of the latter. Darryl Carter’s simple, clean, largely neutral/natural, design aesthetic projects just the right level of warmth and calm coupled with a sense of history that I would love to add to my living spaces. The rooms illustrated in The New Traditional and The Collected Home are striking and interesting, and even moreso are the details: the moldings, the antique and reclaimed furniture, the creative use of meaningful objects.

I truly and deeply want these “choid/frois” French hot/cold taps in my bathroom! Deeply.

Details: Reclaimed Wood Door

I have a thing for old, ornate, detailed doors, especially reclaimed ones repurposed in modern spaces.

(This house tour of Genevieve Gorder’s remodeled brownstone also features some sophisticated, well-done repurposed items.)

Brand new or pieces with a story to tell? What’s your furniture fave and why? Do share 🙂
