Living Like Lucrezia Borgia
Living Like Lucrezia Borgia
Caption reads: Furniture in the Italian Provincial style, scaled to today's smaller rooms, makes a traditional dining ararangement in a modern setting. The table, with its octagonal top and pedestal base, provides ample room for dinner for four, yet takes little space. It can be extended to serve eight. The mitered fruitwood tabletop and the base, with its antique finish, give this table the lightness and grace of Italian Provincial styling. The armchairs, trimmed down in scale to fit the table, feature an antique-white finish that is accented with hand-painted gold striping. The velvet upholstery for chair sets and arms echoes the warm fruitwood finish and the gold of the chair decoration. The open-weave cane backs contribute ot the spacious look set by the wall-to-wall carpeting. A slab of white marble tops the three identical storage units to make a light and practical sideboard. White is used extensively throughout the room in a variety of textures, such as the painted brick and the thick carpteting. This dining room's decor was selected to provide a background for the owner's collection of cobalt-blue glassware and the elegant chandelier. Blue flowers in the centerpiece accent the blue crystal. The neutral white background makes an excellent foil for the blue of the accents.

The New Traditional: Reinvent-Balance-Define Your Home
Darryl Carter is a leader in the design world, recognized for his restrained, distinguished, and livable environments. Known for seamlessly mixing the modern with the classical, Carter presents a comprehensive guide to creating a home that balances individual comfort with a timeless aesthetic.

Comfort is the essential element of a successful interior, but also the most elusive. Too often our design decisions are driven by others. In The New Traditional, Darryl Carter encourages you to be true to your own lifestyle. More than a stunning book, this is an accessible resource for making an elegant, inviting home, responsive to the people who live in it every day.

A fresh take on American design, Carter’s work has been lauded as the New Traditional for effortlessly blending classic and modern elements to create personal environments. Patinated furniture, subtle textiles and lighting, and chalky washes of color are among the details that transform a house into a home. Carter explains how you can translate these details into inspired and always calming surroundings. Ignore the obvious. Redefine a dining room so that it doubles as a library by lining the walls with bookshelves and using wing chairs in lieu of dining chairs. Stain wood floors white to create a greater sense of space. Build rooms around art. Carter shows that designing your home is a process to be enjoyed.
