This little snippet of a picture caught my eye because of the settee in the foreground. It reminds me very much of the settee I just put into the new music room (below).
Mine is more curvy but it has the caned back and sides. I am really digging the the white finish and the grayish upholstery!
I'm almost committed to starting that project- almost :)
Anyhow- Nice room, right?
This D.C. townhouse was featured in Elle Decor a few years back. It belongs to furniture designer and decorator Darryl Carter.
Same room- different perspective.
Great example of opposing forces: an eighteenth century regency table alongside polished-poured-concrete cocktail tables!
Carter designed the mantel himself. As I sit here by the pool writing this post it is hard for me to think of a roaring fire in that fireplace but I can envision the kids lined up on the bench with a mug of hot chocolate.
An antique Italian etagere sitting up on the countertop accentuates the height of the ceiling over the island.
Another concrete table in the dining room.
The chairs, designed by Carter have Edelman leather upholstery.
I appreciate the modern lines of the concrete table but definitely prefer this rustic table in the breakfast room.
More antique eighteenth century furniture and shutters designed by Carter.
What a luxury to have a pair of antique tubs
(salvaged from the Russian Embassy no less)!
I have to show you the master bedroom.
A pair of bordello doors serve as the headboard-
I'm trying to think of something pithy to say but nothing is coming to mind ;)
I'll just leave it at that! -Love the rug!
Have anything to add? I'd love to hear from you!
