Black and white interiors get me every time, so I fell in love with the room pictured below in a recent magazine ad for Benjamin Moore.
That chandelier and oversized artwork are dynamite, don't you think? It turns out that this interior is actually designer Darryl Carter's 19th-century Virginia farmhouse, which was featured in Elle Decor back in 2008.
The photos are amazing (you can see them all here) and some of my favorites are featured below. I love this traditional, black & white design, filled with lots of surprising details. Design perfection!
Want to see more of Darryl Carter's work? His portfolio can be found here, and we've featured snapshots of his interiors on The Pink Chalkboard here (first photo) and here.
