Interior designer David Bromstad shares how he celebrates Pride and expresses his authentic self in design, both on- and off-camera. Marianne sits down for a candid conversation with interior designer and host of My Lottery Dream Home, David Bromstad. David talks about his journey from a midwestern boy with dreams of being a Disney animator to his first time competing on Design Star. He reveals the pivotal moment a fellow competitor gave him the courage to be his true, honest self—and how he continues to carry that attitude today. He shares some hard moments and his advice to anyone struggling to find their voice. David talks about the stories behind his many tattoos, his love for the city of Orlando, and what his ideal world looks like.
