(Our honorable mentions go to submissions that did not make the finals but really rock. They are awarded purely at the judge's discretion. Each honorable mention receives a special gift.)
Our Room & Board Judge, Emily Gurstelle, made a wonderful choice of Northwest #7, Shannon's Sumptuous Studio for her honorable mention.
Emily says: I love how much personality is packed into that small studio. The strong colors might be too much for some, but I see a very cohesive design between the furniture, accessories and walls. You can tell how much thought was put into each element—from the dining table to the bedroom nook. For me, this space has a great balance of edited possessions and worldly comforts.
Congratulations to Shannon!
Stay tuned this week as we will be showcasing the expanded entries from our 16 regional finalists and our international finalists - more small cool...
