My favorite holiday card this season

Darryl Carter should have been the White House decorator. He lives in DC (hello, easy commute), his taste is exquisite (see his townhouse below), and it was Michelle Obama's chance to showcase an uber-gifted African-American interior design talent. But that's water under the bridge and Mr. Carter is not lacking for projects. His newest being a pup named Gus who joins the ever elegant Otis. Thanks for fab card, Sir!

He's the bomb. Plain and simple.

Dear Raina,
I like THIS very much! Besides the zebra rug - no dead animals neither on the wall nor on the floor nor anywhere! This steals the dignity of any living creature on this planet!
Why don't people get this?!
Greetings,
Petra

Love the combination of modern and old/rustic- but I am with Petra on the zebrarug...

I thought the same thing from the very beginning -- I really, really think he should have been the White House decorator. Michael Smith is way too California. Darryl Carter is a perfect fit.

Love Gus. Love Darryl. Love his interiors. Perfection.

Great card, dapper (read: hot) gent, impeccable interiors -- what's not to love?
This is also one of the few times we'll ever see Darryl use or refer to red in a design project, as he usually sticks with the monochromatic vibe!

Yes he's amazing. Love the kitchen and also am so amazed that the modern looking dining table is infact made of concrete.. Looks great with that big mirror!

Although he doesn't know it yet, he's my next husband.

And your Darryl Carter way outtrumps my parent's Hubert Humphrey Christmas Card.

And yes to everything you said.

This is one reason why I love your blog -- I've never heard of this man before and now I'm a huge fan. Of course, he could have zero design skills and I'd still be a fan. But what a house!

I love how his dogs match his neutral aesthetic.
