Since my posts this week were about Virginia Garden Week, I thought I would share a different approach to “historic” Virginia. Renowned designer Darryl Carter restored a 19th century farmhouse in Virginia and took a more relaxed and refreshed spin on the design, without sacrificing historical components. While I do love the classic look of tradition in may Virginia homes, you can’t help but appreciate Carter’s home that depicts the essence of casually chic country living.
Wishing you have a casually chic weekend! wherever you are!

A modern rustic farmhouse retreat. I love the simplicity of it all!
Open shelving and a free standing island are very effective in this all white home.
Layers of neutral and smart pops of black make for an inviting living area.
I love this dining room, but I love the barn dutch barn door off to the left even more.
A very smart room of shelving that is piled with shades of white tableware.
White steps, white walls, and white floors make the all natural shades of wood strike strongly.
Could you imagine this room in the winter, with a fire and fur blanket?! A true room of relaxation.
Wisteria covered pergola. I love the pigs!!
This galvanized metal tub looks as if it has been there forever!
Serene sitting area.
Neutrals incorporate together to focus on the antiques and woodwork.

That horn chair is such an intriguing twist in this bedroom.
