The designs in our "City and Founders" collections are a unique blend of “modern meets traditional.” We are calling it our “Practical Glamour” design aesthetic. We know that the Darling buyer wants to live in a luxurious and well-designed home, but it is also often a family home and, at the end of the day, has to live well and be practical. Mixing transitional and more modern pieces with a color palette that has a combination of neutral upholstery, mixed metals and washed woods gives us a rich palette that feels trendy. When a home is comfortable yet stylish, that is a true reflection of the Darling life.
