old soul




whenever i see the interior work of darryl carter, i take a moment of silence and let my inner joy get the party started.

to me, his practical sensibility is just right. he could take it up a notch and layer in more modern or take it down a notch for a more primitive minimal.

he lets his 19th century cottage be just what it was intended to be....well done.

I agree. Serene rusticity?

that first image took my breath away just a little. is that second shot a kitchen? I have always wanted a kitchen that didn't look like one...

hi daryl- how are you. it has been a while.
i couldn't put it better "serene rusticity". i might have to use that as a title and give you props..

perfect gray - like i said before, we should move in together. we are 2 peas in a pod. i know...the first image is shockingly clear and perfectly simple. i wonder if you start to rust after using that tub. ;o)
the second shot is a kitchen. you can see the sink and dishwasher. i never thought of it like you do, a kitchen that didnt look like a kitchen. i get it and agree.

oh, goodness - I was so fixated on the super cool dutch door that I completely missed the dishwasher and fridge in the lower photo....

I don't know about that tub, though. All I could think about were the heavy metal free radicals....I think I would have to have it reglazed...
