I am excited to announce that I will be a Design Coach in Puget Sound Energy's design competition Re-Energized By Design. Follow me after the jump to find out more about the contest and, if you are in the area, how you can become a contestant.
Re-Energized by Design is an exciting new challenge that will follow six contestants as they compete in a series of five home design challenges. There will be a design coach paired with each contestant — as a design coach I will be helping the chosen families re-design six rooms in their homes, combining energy efficiency with beautiful design. I'll keep you updated as it all rolls along. Wish me luck!
The Mission: Combine elegant home design with energy-efficient products throughout the home — in the bathroom, office or garage, living room, laundry room, and kitchen. If selected as a contestant, you'll be paired with a design coach for help and inspiration.
After each room challenge, a panel of celebrity judges will review how each contestant fared in mixing energy efficiency and beautiful design — and the lowest-scoring contestant is eliminated! Each step of Re-Energized by Design will be covered by professional film crews and used to produce an online mini-series.
For each room challenge, all contestants will receive the energy-efficient products outlined here, plus $500 "spending money" to help complete the look. The longer a contestant stays in the competition, the more they win! The Grand Prize is $5000.
Up For The Challenge? If you're a PSE customer, you are eligible to be chosen as one of the six families. You have until October 31 to get your submissions in. Check here for the application and rules.
