Design Challenge
Create a space to feature the best of the author's gorgeous photography. Balance the text with the images to create a design that works for both the home design and the lifestyle elements.

Create a book that becomes a desirable collector's object and that exudes the spirit of rustic simplicity and country living but in a sophisticated manner. It should appeal to one's emotions about living a peaceful life in a simple, beautiful way. Visually appeal to homeowners who like country style, builders, renovators, catalogs who specialize in country living, building, and woodworking.
