Virginia Modern

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!
