  3. Shelly says:

    Fabulous!!! I'd love to have my guest bedroom redone into an oasis where vistors can relax and recharge!

  4. MyLittleHappyPlace says:

    Our office needs serious help! Right now, it amounts to an oversized desk, with stacks of books lining the walls (on the floor) A revamp is a must!

    P.S. – Can't wait to see what the new year has in store for you – congrats on finding your passion, and going for it!

  5. Hello Lover... says:

    Dining room! Help please!

  6. Katie says:

    yes, please!

  7. mtlbaker says:

    We just moved into our first house and our kitchen came equipped with lovely orange counters – I am dying for a change but have no idea where to start. Help! This would be the best Christmas gift ever.

  8. Brandy says:

    Would love it!

  9. Teri says:

    Awesome! I would really like some help with my dining room!


  10. Jenn says:

    Congrats on almost finishing your schooling. That is an amazing accomplishment and I just adore your blog. I so envy you! Thanks for the chance to win on all of these giveaways!

    I would pick my living room because it's open to my kitchen and it's so hard for me to figure out how to decorate in such a HUGE space! It's hard to decide colors and where paint should end. I don't even enjoy the layout. lol It's a mess!

  11. Mary says:

    Awesome! I would love a fresh new perspective and many of my rooms are a work in progress!

  12. ginny says:

    I would love some help with my bedroom!!! Thanks, Ginny


  13. Wendy says:

    This is perfect! I would love your advice on how to decorate our home office area 😀


  14. Nicole says:

    What an awesome giveaway!

    I'd have to choose my kitchen. It's really a very sorry sight right now.

  15. other-option says:

    I would love your input for my master bedroom – it needs some serious help! Good for you on having the courage to pursue your dreams….

  16. stephanie says:

    what a fabuould giveaway!!! i have several rooms in need of a makeover/revamp (family room, dining room, daughter's room). thanks!

  17. Jennifer says:

    This is the best give-away yet (ever!)!!!! I need some MAJOR help on my living room and you would be just the person to do it!

  18. ms. less is always more says:

    You are so sweet… I love that line in the movie too, because really don't we all (or shouldn't we all!?!?) have something like that in our life – the ONE thing that has saved us or changed us? Love it!

    I could use some SERIOUS help on my master bedroom. I want it to be chic and cozy and put-together but it's a wreck… a little of this and a little of that and for the life of me I can't pull it together!

  19. Kim says:

    You are so right. My blog did the same for me! Our living room could use some help. We knocked out a wall to the kitchen and now I can't figure out how to arrange the furniture around it! Plus the walls are bare because I don't know how to fill them. It's a boring mess.

  20. ms. less is always more says:

    just tweeted it too! 🙂

  21. Daniela says:

    My living room needs help!

  22. Kate says:

    What a generous offer … I'd love for you to tackle our living room. It's the first room guests see when they enter our home, but is terribly underutilized (we hang out in the family room). Would LOVE your assistance in bringing the room to life with form and function. Thanks! Kate (Google Reader follower … and sorry if I inadvertantly entered twice – the orginal post hasn't shown up, so I think I messed it up somehow!)

  23. Shannon says:

    Seriously.awesome.giveaway! Do you feel like Oprah this week?

    I'd LOVE to get my in-law suite done!


  24. Design Esquire says:

    Wow! This is so generous. I'm not sure which room – either my master bedroom, my dining room or my living room… And THANK YOU for blogging this year.

  25. Sandra Berryhill [KELLER WILLIAMS REAL ESTATE] says:

    My living room NEEDS YOU!!!!!!
    A New Follower that loves your Blog

  26. PS~Erin says:

    Thank you so much for the opportunity. Such sweet sentiment behind it too.

    I would definitely choose my master bedroom. It's seriously lacking, and I'm not sure what direction I'd like to take it.

  27. gail@myrepurposedlife.blogspot.com says:

    ohhh, I need help with my living room. It's in desperate need of a makeover, but if I won, I would be on a shoestring budget… probably too much of a challenge for ya! 🙁
    but, I'll enter anyway, and if I win, we'll see what we can accomplish together.!
    and of course I follow you. 🙂

  28. PS~Erin says:

    tweeted to double my chances 🙂

  29. jamie says:

    It's hard to pick just 1 room! I have a room that was designed on the tv show Find & Design and I'm ready to start making it my "own" and kinda change some things up in it. It's a guest bedroom that will most likely become an office/craft room in the spring when I get a roommate and have to move all my junk out of the extra bedroom! Would love some help transitioning the room!


  30. PS~Erin says:

    tweeted to double my chances 🙂

  31. bug says:

  33. Amber says:

    I'd love some help with my living room. I'm totally clueless on how to put together all the ideas I have. Great giveaway!


  34. Colette's Cottage says:

    My family room needs help! It's too big for my one couch and chair, but I need direction.

  35. Peckish says:

    Looks like you saved the best for last!!!

    Oh my open plan living room could use your touch!

  36. Kellie says:

    I'm new to the blog world and this is my first comment but with a prize like this I had to join in!

  37. The Wife of a Fisherman says:

    i would love for you to redo our whole house!! but if i have to choose just one room, it would be our bedroom! it is such a mismatch of stuff..i hope i win 🙂

  38. MMW says:

    NO WAY! What a treat! Count me into this giveaway. I'd love my home to have your flare.

  39. Kari says:

    I'm hoping to need a nursery room this coming year!

  40. Sarah says:

    pick me, pick me… 😉 This is the best giveaway EVER.
    Since I am in a new house I need all rooms done but the one that I would like to see a change in most would be my kitchen/kitchette area. I need help with fabrics for the window coverings and placement of wall fixtures. It's open to the great room so it's hard for me to figure out what to choose.

  41. Monica says:

    Oh! This is the best yet!! Pick me!!

  42. Rosemarythyme says:

    Oooh, what a great give-away. I'd love to have ideas for my family room – too many doors and not enough wall space so space planning is a biggie for me. Color ideas, accessories…I'm so excited at the opportunity!

  43. peace.love.applesauce says:

    Oh, I would love to be entered!
    I'm about to move into an apartment and need some good ideas for a boy/girl split bedroom.

    PS. I'm already a follower! 😉

  44. suzib says:

    I would love to redo my master bathroom!

  45. April says:

    My living room. I'm currently working on my master bedroom and I'm fairly confident in my design but my living room is sad.

  46. Lindsay says:

    We just bought our first home and move in on Sunday! I would need help with ALL rooms however I will choose the living room! It has a great layout and so much potential. What a great giveaway and great timing! Hugs!

    Lindsay Lee

  47. Mrs.LifeAccounts says:

    I would love to do our whole space! But if I had to pick one I would say our living room/office area. It's such a tough spot because its oddly shapped but all one area.

    I am a follower!

  48. Denise says:

    My half done living room could really use your touch!

  49. Cristin says:

    After kids, I decided to go back to school to learn design. My first client encouraged me to blog to help with marketing. I never thought I would stick with it or enjoy it. Here I am – I have posted almost 150 articles!

    I have always loved your blog.

    No need to enter me in the giveaway {although I love your design and style}.


  50. Barbara says:

    Could really use your help with my living/dining room!


  51. The Brick Cottage says:

    I have a feeling that this is going to be your most popular give away thus far, so I just blogged about it to double my chances.

  52. Momto3Munchkins says:

    We are an Air Force family who is moving to FL over Christmas time. The house we are moving into is a blank slate, and I really need help in designing all of it, but most of all the family room. We have 3 kids 3 and under, so I no longer have time to work on designing it myself like I did after our last move.
    Thanks for considering us!

  53. Aileen says:

    Hey Cam! Jackie and I would love some help in our living room! Love yaa

  55. Blair says:

    OhI started tearing up just thinking about that scene/line again! Great giveaway!;) xx blair

  56. Sarah says:

    Just posted on my blog, so I am re-entering.

  57. Natalie says:

    Awesome. I would LOVE some advice for our family room which also blends into our kitchen which blends into our dining room. Okay, I'm going to need more than one. 🙂 You can pick. We're in the middle of a house reno and it's a blank canvas there right now.


  58. rj says:

    You are generous, and offering just what I need. I have a family room with a triangle of paths through it. It is long, and I have never yet found an arrangement that makes sense! I follow you via Bloglines, and have so enjoyed your posts!

  59. Lauren says:

    Ooh what a nice idea!! So generous of you. I would LOVE to have your help – My boyfriend and I are moving tomorrow from our current 1 bedroom apartment to a new place with 2 bedrooms and a lot more space, and I'm really at a loss as to what to do with the new place!!

    In particular, it would be AMAZING to have your help with the new living room… A lot of stuff has to go on in that room – Couch and conversation/tv type area obviously, but also all of my books, my work area, and my boyfriend's computer area. I don't know where to start!! 🙂

  60. Amanda says:

    I only recently came across your blog but am happy to say I know what you mean about how inspirational this not-so-little blog world can be in ways that far surpass simply home decor.

    How lovely that it has helped you pursue your dream! Because after all, dreams are meant to be chased. est wishes in all you do!

    Now for my entry… man oh man if you only knew what a BIG blank canvas our family room was. Words wouldn't do my desire to win this any justice. So I'm off to post about this on my blog and enter a second time. 🙂

  61. Kelly K. says:

    This would be so great to win! I really need help with the master bedroom to make it cohesive, relaxing and inviting.

  62. Amanda says:

    Back again… I posted about it on my little blog and although there are only 12 followers of mine who will read about it, they are important to me and deserve the chance to win this fab prize too. 🙂 Best of luck to everyone, I can only imagine how happy this would make so many.

  63. Jen says:

    I know your business will be such a success & how great to be able to do something that you love!

    Is 'my whole house' outside the scope of this contest? That's how much I really need help with.

    I would love help designing my craft room / office which is now where we store all of the junk we haven't found a place for yet!

    You're awesome!

    And I'm a follower of course

  64. Kim says:

    I'm glad you are following your dreams and it looks like your dream is coming true.

    We are building a new family room addition this spring and I would love to see what you would do with the plans. Wouldn't you like to do a whole room from scratch?

  65. Elaine says:

    My bedroom!! I would love a romantic getaway in my house! I need help 🙂

  70. Melissa says:

    Yay! Yay! Yay! I love your blog, and the fun giveaways, but I've never entered any before. I don't just really want to win this, I NEED to win! (Did I say yay?!?!) My living room is so sad and bare and in desperate need of help!

  78. The Lone Dollier says:

    I'm already a follower on Google Reader.

    I really really really need design work done on my living room. We call it the cathedral – it's so huge but really funny shaped it's hard to do much. When we expanded the house, we knocked out walls and moved doorways, leaving us with a large area and dead space.


  79. Erin says:

    oh oh me me! But, seriously, my eating space needs some serious work.

  80. matandconnie says:

    I would love some help with my Master bedroom. It is not coming together with just my ideas. I love your style so I know anything you do will be just right for me. I too am discontented with my job and life. I am working on that but would love to have a master bedroom that feels like the real me to come home to. matandconnie@hotmail.com

  81. burlap + blue says:

  88. mkelton24 says:

    Umm..where do I even begin! My husband and I just bought out first little 1949 fixer upper. Last night was our first night in the house and we slept in the guest room. This was actually fun because it was his big 30th birthday and I felt like we were at a bed and breakfast or something-so fun! Anyhoo…we are working on the master bedroom today actually- it needed much work to windows, caulking, patching sheetrock and setteling cracks-but now it has been primed and painted a nice creamy white. We are going to get one more coat on everything today and the big move in is tomorrow. We REALLY could use the help. Why is it that every other room I have great furniture, art and nic-nacks-but our room- it is like the dud! It needs a little attention from you and we would L-O-V-E to win!

  97. Aevan Arts says:

  105. Jamie says:

    My living room in my new house is in need of some help – right now it's just drywall!


  106. mama3davis says:

    My downstairs living room (in a basement rancher.) It has been everything from an office for several people to storage- but never a warm cozy spot for the kids to play, which is what I am needing- bad.

    I can't decide… it would be my bedroom or living room!

  114. Kwana says:

get inspired with our own home tour


My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
