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.

The chic and glamorousĀ Kelly Wearstler was featured on CBS Sunday Morning yesterday! I have been a fan of her work for years, in fact, the Richard Ginori table lamp I posted about (in my bedroom) is pictured in a Kelly Wearstler book! My favorite KW interior is BG, the seventh-floor restaurant at Bergdorf Goodman! I can’t go to NYC without having lunch at BG! It has it all ~ spectacular views, stylish furnishings (love the porter chairs!), ultra chic lighting (the chandeliers are out of this world!), exquisite wallpaper (hand-painted de Gournay chinoiserie wallpaper of birds and flowers), and for the icing on the cake (no food pun intended!), the Bergdorf Goodman home store is on the same floor!!!!!
