Skape & Heg's favorite OTHER entry:

My favorite is entry #30- "Mary and Ronit's Tree-Lined Railroad". I love the playfulness of the tree drawings! The best feature is the butterly glued onto the wall, as well as the other interesting objects hanging in the room. It's a charmingly odd space with beautiful, nostalgic color.

My husband (Hegs) really loves entry #42- "John & Anna's Old and New Rendezvous". I know he likes it because from the day it appeared on the contest page, he's told me to check it out like 40 different times! While we were renovating our building, I think this is the style he had in mind for our decor. (He also loves the huge painting on their green wall!)

What do you want to do next in your home, if anything, to improve it?:

We want to create a beautiful living space in the back yard. Our time and money was concentrated on the interior of the building, so the back yard looks cold & abandoned. We have a fabulous brand-new deck (images on the video), but we need to breathe some life into it with yard art, bright furniture, and landscaping.
