Matthew Carter creates dynamic, timeless interiors for clients around the world. Established in 2002, Carter’s eponymous firm is known for breathing new life into antiques and heirlooms, designing houses and spaces that respect history but feel fresh and relevant for today. Although based in Lexington, KY, current projects span the map from Napa Valley, Vail, and Washington D.C. to Palm Beach and Lyford Cay, Bahamas.
Throughout his career, editors and photographers have celebrated Carter’s signature layered look and keen ability to relax even the grandest of houses. In 2005, he was counted among House Beautiful magazine’s “America’s Top Young Designers.” More recently, his work has appeared in books such as Fortuny Interiors by Brian Coleman, Linens: For Every Room and Occasion by Jane Scott Hodges, Kentucky: Historic Houses and Horse Farms of Bluegrass Country by Pieter Estersohn, and publications such as Keeneland Magazine, C Magazine and House Beautiful.
