This is a bed I designed for a gentleman in San Diego. I think the use of walnut sends a masculine message. I have also made this bed reversing the colors with maple as the dominant wood and walnut as the accent. I think it works nicely both ways.

Very nice work. Did you take the picture in a studio?

Thanks, PrarieFire and Vince!
The picture was originally shot in my yard with flowers, trees as a background. Then I needed the image to submit to a show and I needed to get rid of the extraneous stuff, so my niece photoshopped the shot. I think it lost a lot of the grain detail at this point, which is unfortunate.

To shoot our new product line of jewelry boxes which you can see on my website we purchased a gradiated background from a photo supply shop. We shoot with ambient light, high F stop with a long exposure in our bedroom. I think they look pretty good and my husband gets all the kudos for that.
