Design service giveaway


Hello Dumplings! I just wanted to remind you of the virtual design service giveaway from La Lamp Shade. In my previous post, I described how I mentally redecorate any home I visit. A few darling Dumplings asked if I would do the same for their spaces.

So what I'm going to do is a giveaway of my virtual design services. And this is how it works:

1. Leave a comment here or at the previous post. Make sure I can follow you back to your website or blog or leave your contact info.

2. The giveaway is for my virtual consultation on ONE room of your home. You may send as many photos as you wish of the space, and I will give you detailed notes on furniture and accessory placement.

3. You agree to send photos of the rearranged space for a "before & after" post on this blog.

4. The giveaway will close on Wednesday, May 26th, 2010 at midnight MST. I will announce the randomly-chosen winner Thursday, May 27th, 2010.

Gropes and good luck, Sweeties!

Oh holy crap! Like everyone else, I was just wishing this would happen! Now quick, everybody switch to wishing that a cloning machine malfunctions and sends us each our own Johnny Depp!

Point being, I would die if you helped me figure out what the hell to do with my bedroom. Die of AWESOME.

Tonia of Chic Modern Vintage said...

Gurl, you are too much! OOOOooo I'm over here drooling over these rooms of yours. Especially your daughters room! The shutters are to die for.

Kate said...

I have been coveting that damn garden stool for months since you posted it and have trolled, wild eyed, through TJMaxx, dragging my children along.
This is the next best thing to scoring that stool. Pick me!!!

I live in a 1600sq ft loft that was a telephone factory in the 30s. A bit crazy as it doubles as my studio of antiques. 14 ft tall windows....now that would be a charm to have your insight!!

Ugh, this would be SO AWESOME. I just moved into my first solo apartment, and no longer have roommates or boyfriends to blame for not having excellent decor. Some help (and a pair of imminently awesome eyes) would be so, so excellent.

lucitebox said...

I have decided to enter the giveaway but I do so with some hesitation. My place is hardly worthy of your discerning eye and your discriminating taste. I enter knowing there's a good chance you might want to make snarky remarks about my apartment. Alas, I think I need you. Now more than ever.
