Who was your favorite entry and why?

I am a big fan of a couple of the Midwest finalists - Lisette's Pied a Terre because it totally drew me in and I looked at it for a long time, so many interesting things and all beautifully layered together in the tiny space. I also really loved Stephanie's Life of Pie, it's really sophisticated but not overly formal - I'd like to think that's what our house will look like when it grows up!

What's your next improvement?

Small (and achievable): paint the wall in the lounge room a subtle blue colour as a nice background for the art. Find or make some art to hang above the dining table. And also get a heater of some sort – winter is fast approaching and it's getting cold down here in Australia!

Big (pie in the sky at the moment): completely redo the back half of the bedroom/upstairs to make it a better shape and height (so you don't hit your head!)
