Darry Savage: White Diamond

Reading the Spring Home & Design Issue of the Washington Post Magazine this morning, a featured designer & antiques dealer, Daryll Savage, more-than-caught my eye!! (Below, see all the aged white & moss?!! = perfection)

Darryl Savage's Annapolis waterfront home boasts an all-white color palette & a 100 foot deck along the back of the house over the river. Below, the view is amazing!!

Darryl owns & runs DHS Designs' Antiques in Potomac, Maryland and the website has me drooling!!! With clients like as Charlotte Moss, it's no wonder!!

Below if a view of his living room, with photos taken a few years ago. I have to say, the photos featured in the Post Magazine were a little more to my taste... It's been restyled a bit and there's now a very cool huge white paper mache hippo in the living room. The all white-palette with hits of black perfectly showcases the views.

Darryl's motto with this house was "Bring on the bling."

The ancient statues at attention along the window are incredible!! Somehow, though, Darryl manages to make it all look fun instead of serious.

Darryl loves his neutral palette because he can inject any color he wants into the scheme at any time, as seen in the red coral branches below. (Sounds like someone I know?!! ;) ;)

I'd LOVE to dine here!! Or party here!!!
His bedroom, below features more black than the rest of the home. Check out his leather dresser to the back left!!! (Again, the Post's view of this room is better and you can check out all those photos here)
Here's another shot from a differet photo

And check out his 22-year old daughter's bedroom, below. The walls are done in glass beads, the floors are seamless white marble and the chandelier is pink crystal. Lucky girl!!

One of my favorite things to hear was that Darryl says his neighbors roll their eyes at him, always wondering what crazy thing he'll do next. Currently, huge Chinese statues are out front. Who knows what else he's got in store??
I can't wait to be able to have fun like that at our new place!!! :)
