Opposite attraction


Decor, Spring Summer 2009

Interior Designer Darryl Carter carefully restored original details, updated antiques, and welcomed a modern family into this Washington DC home. Traditional homes, with all their charm and character, don't always have the functionality required to manage the modern family lifestyle, but that isn't the case here. Staying true to the architectural integrity of this federal style house, he thoroughly restored it to display it's original features. Add to that, antiques renewed in faux leathers, child friendly fabric on sofas, and durable crayon proof surfaces, and you have a home with all the luxury, without compromising style or comfort. The outdoor dining area is elegant and sophisticated. The wrought iron dining set is classically beautiful, and it's over sized cushions are welcoming. Inside, the neutral palette complimented by warm tones, antique relics, modern art, and family photos add charm, but also create a space that is inviting to every member of this family.
