Darryl Carter's Rustic Farmhouse

I recently featured Darryl's stunning Washington D.C Townhouse. I have become a huge fan of his magazine design work, and his own personal style that shines through in his own homes. Felling the need to create a more relaxing space away from the city, he found this 1840s stucco-and-clapboard house with several fireplaces and a 140-foot-long wisteria pergola. He soon transformed the space into a charming, modern rustic home with a neutral colour palette and mixed texture. Raw timber bench tops mixed with English & Italian antiques. Reclaimed barn doors have been used to create custom cabinetry with the 16 seater dining room table also being created from reclaimed timber.  
In Darryl's words the style he has created for this 19th-century Virginia farmhouse home is "Modern Barn".
