I wanted to send out a big THANK YOU to Donna Vining, author of the fabulous blog, Donna's Blog ~ A Designers Perspective.  I won Darryl Carter's latest book, The Collected Home, through Donna's lovely giveaway!  If you haven't visited Donna's blog, you are truly missing an informative and design filled blog!

I spent two hours pouring over this gorgeous book, and yes, it is one stunning book! The art alone is worth the weight of the book in gold.  ENJOY just a tiny sampling of the images in this beautiful book.
