Winner: Domino Decorating Contest!

November 20, 2007

Scrappy Girl told me that the winner of the Domino decorating contest is Catherine from Mill Valley, CA – additional photos of her home just went live on their website. She won $10,000 – can you imagine winning that? I wonder what she’s going to do with the prize money. What would YOU do? I think I’d completely decorate two rooms in my home from top to bottom.

Winner: Domino Decorating Contest!
“As a single mother I waited 17 years to convert two small bedrooms into my large master bedroom. I did all the demo and hired handymen to install the closets, doorways and white floor. I then painted, stenciled, embossed, and/or glazed every inch of wall space and built the gas fireplace surround myself. I reinvented a 1960s Hollywood vanity, nightstands, small chandeliers and French chair with paint, decoupage and silver leaf. I made and painted the silk organza curtains (items are not pictured). The goal was to create a Parisian-like sanctuary to enjoy after a long working day.” – Catherine

    That white French chair with raspberry cushion in the first photo just makes me drool. The design of that room is so fresh, there’s so much light an air.

    Thank you for posting my pics! I was absolutely taken by SURPRISE that I won! You cannot imagine how thrilled I am. Thanks to everyone who took the time to vote for me and/or others. Now the question is what to do with the prize after the taxes are paid (I am NOT complaining, taxes have to be paid). There are soooooo many things that need to be fixed in my house: windows, drywall, ceilings, floors etc. All items that would fall into “decor”. I am dieing to fix a bathroom that is a complete mess! I demoed out the shower last year and have not done a thing since b/c no money. The bathroom functions just fine so should I be “practicle”? My dream is to put in a new casement window with a clawfoot tub underneath. Just like my bedroom, I would not spend alot of money on one thing. All suggestions are welcome! Thank You again.
