Every House has a story...a soul.  My job as a designer is to tell that story.

    Dan Carithers again.

    In one of my earlier posts I had posted about a beautiful home I found in a back issue of Southern Accents.  The designer was Dan Carithers.  You can read the post here.  Well today while yet again looking for a little inspiration I was surfing the web looking at architectural sites.

    I ran across a home that caught my eye.  Well guess what, the designer on this one was non other than Dan Carithers.  I really like his style.  This homes is a little more formal than the last one, but I love most of the elements in it.

     I am in Love with these rustic beams and the book cases on the back wall!

    Oh this Kitchen!!!  I want to see more of it!  The beams the old wood floor!


    The Mix of Rustic and refined and Antiques with new pieces is just right.

    I love his use of color.  He uses a lot of neutrals, but when he uses color such as the blue in the bedroom above he uses it as a neutral.  It creates a very soothing room.

    Now I am going to have to do some more searching to see what other of his designs catch my fancy.  Which of his designs is your favorite?  

    I am looking for an article on Dan Carithers in the January 2004 House Beautiful Magazine called Sun Valley Splendor.  Any one have that issue?  Could you scan and e-mail me a copy?

    Thanks so Much.  Sue

    Great post. I have all these images in files as well. My very first post in February was from a very old Veranda or Southern Accents issue maybe 2000 of a home done by Dan Carithers. I love his style. I'm glad I found your blog. I have the feeling we might become friends.

    I'm new to your site---love it! I love Dan Carither's work as well the particular rooms you have above I too have saved over the years. I'm especially fond of the kitchen. There was an update on his personal residence in one of the later Southern Accents, maybe about 1 year ago.

    I bet Joni at Cote de Texas has that issue of Southern Accents.
    Love Dan's work too but then I am an Atlanta native.
