A few weeks ago I was invited by my friends over at Apartment Guide to do something pretty fun. I was given a nice budget and asked to go shopping online for four different rooms. OK! You want me to shop with someone else’s money? You don’t have to twist my arm!
Now, I’ll fess up, it was a virtual shopping trip and I don’t get to actually keep anything I chose (darn), but it was fun nevertheless. I was limited by a set budget for each room (which was actually more than I’ve ever spent on a room so it felt like a million dollars). And, I was asked to pick furniture in a specific style for each of the four rooms I put together.
My first design assignment was a “modern living room” and you can see the selections on the Apartment Guide’s design boards below!
Would you like to shop with $10,000 and KEEP WHAT YOU BUY?
How about the opportunity to WIN a $10,000 shopping spree sweepstakes to makeover your own room? HELLLLLLOOOO! Yeah. I thought so. That would get my attention too.
So here is how this works:
Is your place in need of a style update? Enter Apartment Guide’s Your Picks. Your Place. sweepstakes for a chance to win $10,000 to redo your place to fit your personal design style.
From now until August 10, visit YourPicksYourPlace.com to vote for your preferred room design showcasing furniture and home décor items selected by featured bloggers.
The site will feature four different room designs every two weeks. By voting, you’ll be entered for a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize or one of eight $250 weekly prizes to go towards your own selections for your home.
Sound like fun?
All you need to do is go to Your Picks, Your Place and vote and YOU will be automatically entered in the $10,000 shopping sweepstakes!
(I’m not ashamed to be begging you to vote for MY design board, even if you don’t like modern design or hate my choices or think the shops I used are lame, you can STILL vote for me! Will you? Yahoo! Ok, seriously though, I love the other girls doing this so I won’t get too competitive).
You can vote at Your Picks. Your Place every single day between now and August 20th! I’ll be reminding you and showing off my other three design boards during the sweepstakes period.
Thanks SO MUCH for voting!
