Hello. Welcome to the Gray Livin’ blog!
Gray Livin’ is a home interiors brand that consists of a design blog and interior design services founded by Washington, DC based designer Danielle A. Gray.
I started blogging in 2010 under the name A Design State of Mind. At the time, I was working in urban planning at an engineering firm and I desperately needed a creative outlet from my day job. A year later, I changed my blog name to Gray Livin’ and launched interior design services under the same brand. Fast forward four years and hundreds of posts later the unthinkable happened. My site crashed and I lost everything. Every. Single. Post. I know what you’re probably thinking — why didn’t I backup the files? Well I did. Unfortunately, the WordPress plugin that I used failed to backup everything I needed to fully recover the site. So here I am starting over. Lesson learned.
On the bright side, I viewed that experience as an opportunity to revamp the content that I would normally post here. You can expect to find updates on design projects that I’m working on as well as snapshots of modern interiors and objects that inspire me. I’m also giving readers a peek into my life as an entrepreneur running a budding interior design business.
