Domino Decorating Contest Finalists

The five finalists have been selected, now it’s your turn to pick a winner. Click here to cast your vote – who should win the $10,000 grand prize?

I’ve already selected my favorite shown here above, Steven from Des Moines, because it’s so completely different from my own decorating style (his is very bold) and I just adore how he uses so much color. I also think his relies less on the architectural features of the room and more on the overall design.

’08 Calendar Round Up: Submit + Win!

Free Stuff Alert! Would you like to win a calendar from JHill Design? I can’t believe we’re already thinking about the new year, but since so many have asked recently if I’d pull together another calendar round up (see 2007 round up here) I figure why not – it’s fun! So the ’08 Calendar Round Up will be posted later this Fall. This is where you come in…

If you plan to sell calendars for ’08 and you’d like to be considered for this round up, please send me clear images, a link to where they can be purchased online, and the price. I will consider all submissions, so please send them to decor8blog AT yahoo DOT com. The deadline is October 31st. Of course, I’ll come up with many of my own finds as always, so together we should have a beautiful selection of calendars for the new year.

Now onto the free stuff. I’ll select two readers a prize and entry is easy – Leave a comment (only 1 per person) below listing 5 things that you plan to accomplish in ’08 that are helping/supporting others. You could win either the ’08 desk calendar from JHill Design or the ’08 Wall Calendar*. A special thanks to Jennifer for sponsoring this fun mini giveaway. And please… leave your first name and email address in your comment so that if you win, I can contact you. Thanks!

*Calendars will not ship until late November when I’m back in the states. Thank you!

Domino Magazine Decorating Contest

Cathy over at Domino told me about a decorating contest they’re having and she thinks decor8 readers might be interested in it. Get this, the grand prize is a $10K Mastercard giftcard to be spent on home decor. Drool. Entrants simply upload a photo and write a short 100-word essay about what makes their decorating style so unique. For entry details, click here. Wouldn’t you love to spend that on your home?!

Thanks, Cathy for the tip!

If your name appears below, you’ve won the Fabulous Stationery contest! Congrats! I’ll be in touch with you today for your mailing address so I can send along your tote bag. Fabulous Stationery will email your $50 gift certificate within the next few days.

Thanks again to all that entered, it was fun to see all of the entries and the amount of talented readers out there. You are all closet designers, aren’t you!? We’ll have one more contest this year (mid Sept), and then I’ll line up some more for 2008, one per quarter.

#106 Dhruti Dogra, India.

Entry #2 Carlene Vitali, Illinois.

Entry #9 Silvia Amtmann, Washington.

I’m a bit under the weather today so I’m going to chill out and do nothing all day. I guess this is the joy of freelance, being able to drop everything now and then. But I’ll be back tomorrow, so see you then everyone!
