Today I want to congratulate two people with really small, cool homes, Chris from Houston and Maria from Barcelona. Out of the biggest entry field we've ever had (over 500 submissions), these two sprinted to the finish, easily beating off the competition to become our 2010 winners. As winners, we're going to fly Chris to NYC for a design shopping weekend (and brunch with me), and I'm sending Maria a signed copy of the new book, and inviting her to visit us ANYTIME (tax laws make it difficult for us to grant bigger prizes overseas). Take a close look at these remarkable homes, and then take a look at all of our past winners. I've never done a roundup like this before.
