I’m a finalist so now I have the chance to win the whole thing. Go vote here!
It’s official. This week rules (and my life is going to be so boring after all of this). I won my division in Apartment Therapy’s Small Cool contest. A huge thank you to all of you who voted, shared and tweeted my entry. It obviously was a HUGE help! There’s one more round to go…
I knew the finalists would be announced yesterday so the refresh button and I became fast friends. The rules this year were a little different. The top 5 entries (by number of votes) went to a judges’ panel for the final ruling. So yea, even though I had the most votes in my division, it was completely possible that I still wouldn’t win. I don’t know what the judges’ criteria was, but this pretty much made my day:
Amy is a fancy pants senior digital editor for House Beautiful, Elle Decor and more. Amy, you don’t know me and I don’t know you but I’d totally be up for a super awkward phone call where I basically just stutter and babble about my throw pillow addiction and other ridiculous things.
And the art she loves so much is 100% attributed to our close friend Benjamin Rogers. All of our artwork that’s featured are originals done by him. Ben, you rock.
I don’t think I have a good chance of winning and to be totally honest—yes, while a 900 square foot is relatively small compared to homes in my area, it’s nothing in comparison to the 250, 300 and 500 square foot AMAZING homes I’m up against. They are the true small, cool homes. I’m happy to just be included at the top. And a little sad, because I think I’m not allowed to participate next year!
Thanks for bearing with me. The voting ends at 3 pm EDT today so this will all be over soon enough. I have a lot of content waiting to share… some kitchen posts, a bunch of DIY I did for the shoot and more. Hold tight!
Here’s the voting page. I am so appreciative!
