A CALMING EFFECT


I've admired designer Darryl Carter's tailored, subdued interiors for ages. Who wouldn't love an afternoon nap in one of his luxurious bedrooms filled with dark antiques, goose down duvets and soft linen drapes? While a dreamy nap isn't in the cards today, I was thrilled to come across his new line of paint for Benjamin Moore yesterday. One look at his collection (24 colors) of creamy whites and moody grays had me throwing my usual neutrals into the dust bin.

Darryl Carter is by far my favorite designer. I love the way he puts a room together or should I say takes it apart since he likes editing so much. I didn't know he had a new line of paint out, very exciting!

I didn't know about Darryl Carter paints for Benjamin Moore...I'm glad that I do, in a few months I'll be painting my new (very old) house before we move in and this is just what I needed. These images are all so pretty.

Just saw an ad for the paints....he knows his neutrals thats for sure. A talented man and I can't help but think his name on paints will launch many new "repaints" of rooms all across the country!

The pale green interior paint has such a calming effect, even in the daytime. I wouldn't expect it from such a hue.
