I'm loving the clean minimalist approach.


Great review, love the use of books in the built in shelves in the 2nd photo.

Now this is a book we should be getting as we find more of our clients tend to veer to this style rather than contemporary or modern. Thx for the peek & post Anne!


I have to say, though I don't consider my style too traditional, this book looks like a beautiful one. Traditional elements can work well in plenty of design styles and I have already seen a lot of great details that I could incorporate into my own eclectic home just from the photos you've posted here. Thanks for sharing!


Love the fresh approach to traditional design...thanks for sharing!


Anne, I am kissing my computer screen right now.. The book may be comme-ci comme-ca, but I love (!) these pictures and they are going straight into my treasure chest of inspiration.
Darryl Carter is fantastic. Love his NY apartment and his sense of adding a layer of refined rusticity to decor.

This looks like a definite must have book for the collection! Great style!

It was so pleasant to find someone who was actually eager to help us and who was so knowledgeable that we had to write to you and thank you.

It’s also absolutely critical that as you evaluate your overall situation that you think about how your individual insurance policies fit into an approach for preparing for financial emergencies – and you should look at it across policies, including auto, health, etc.
