Format: Hardcover
Darryl Carter has a wonderful way of showing how to's on mixing new with old. His rooms are beautifully photographed, but his text is what you truly learn from. Being a designer, it is always great to receive fresh insight in how to take one great antique or reproduction piece and meld it into a more contemporary room setting. His use of organic materials and original design is what sets him apart.

STILL A FAN Dec 22 2008
By AESTHETE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I have long admired Darryl Carter for his sophistication, sense of restraint and cool modern take on neoclassicism. That said, I found myself searching each photograph for something just a little more interesting -- just one object or piece of furniture that was a little less generic and basic. The best shot is on the cover, juxtaposing the solid honey brown footed pedestal table and the delicate painted regency klismos chair. A little bit more humor and interplay between shapes, forms, texture and color would go a long way toward activating these interiors and making them spring to life. As is, everything is just a fraction too still and plain. But I'm still a fan.

Daryl Carter May Be the Next Martha Stewart for Home Furnishings! Sept. 3 2008
By Robert Haft - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Daryl Carter has created a new genre and a signature style that is elegant, classical, and comfortable, where the new mixes with the old, and less is certainly more. His equal parts of restraint and creativity create an amazing combination. This book is like a slow, beautiful, casual walk through a well designed yet livable home. I wanted to stop, sit down and enjoy being in many of those rooms. Daryl Carter is already important as furniture designer, lighting designer, and interior designer and if this book is any indication likely the next Martha Stewart like figure for home furnishing.

Favorite Design Book April 15 2009
By DuxburyMom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I adore this book! In fact after reading this book I tossed out my enormous collection of country and antique design books because I realized that they would never again do. I live in a 200 year old home filled with antiques. I am a relatively young mother of three and, while I love my antiques, I have been craving a more updated, fresh look. This book made me realize that to achieve this I didnt have to "start over" and get rid of most of my stuff (or sell my home!). This book really inspires me to use my old things in a fresh new way. "The New Traditional" is a perfect name for this book. Carter uses imperfect antiques in old homes and gives it all new life in a way that no other designer seems to have captured. Thank you Darryl Carter!!

A Design Movement Jan. 13 2009
By Jonathan James - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I found The New Traditional to be completely refreshing... not only for the beautifully captured images, but for the thoughtful writing. Here is a work that I can understand. Mr. Carter takes his ideology and lets the reader pull elements from it that can be executed in their own style - it's a universal message really. That shared, I find his work to be just what the title proclaims - the new traditional. Classic forms brought up to date with the use of neutral textiles - allowing us to appreciate the graceful lines of a camel-back sofa or wing chair rather than being in a competition with pattern on pattern and superfluous trims. The bold juxtaposition of a dark oyster veneered table rising off of a whitewashed floor takes on a sculptural quality. Those that "just see white" clearly don't look at details beyond the surface. Here is someone who understands the subtly of neutrals and washes - of texture interplay, shape, scale and form. I see the new traditional as a movement in a new era of American design which embraces and honors the past with a vision toward the future... I see Mr. Carter as being at the forefront of this design movement. Leave the fussy toile and tassels in your grandmother's attic! Congratulations Mr. Carter!

Buy this book Sept. 9 2008
By Danya Speller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Darryl Carter is a revolutionary in the design world. Creating classic, visualy engaging, and completely livable environments for his clients has transfered well to the book world. Easy and informative reading, stunning photography, and realistic living environments make this a book not about Darryl Carter (like many interior design books) but about well lived and well crafted interiors. This book is how it should be!
