Washington DC designer Darryl Carter has redefined traditional. His book titled “The New Traditional” is a must read for those who love a classic/modern interior. By using simple textiles on formal antique furnishings, he gives them new life. Belgian linen in place of an intricate damask allows the form to read as sculpture in a space. He keeps the palette very clean and pared down so your eye can focus on the beauty of each piece. It is this innovative approach to “tradition” that has captured the hearts of so many. And no one has a better editing eye than Darryl Carter. Less really is more!
