How do you feel about me giving away design for free? It makes me want to cry… (j/k)

I have some new projects I’m working on and I thought it might be an interesting exercise to post my inspiration boards and layouts as they come together. Having your opinion would be invaluable and it would be a good forum for creative expression. Bonuses: Most of the featured furnishings, as well as fabrics are available for purchase through David & Daniel Design at exceptional values. So if you want to use (steal) my designs and are feeling guilty you can always absolve yourself by placing an order. If that all seems like way too much trouble just throw some money in the hat.

This modern country bedroom provides all the comfort you’d expect to find in Virginia horse country and all the charm of the 1800’s, but reminds you, “Yes, we know it’s the 21st century.”
