The judges ballots are all in! Justina Blakeney (Designer, Blogger at The Jungalow and Author of The New Bohemians), Daniel Kanter (Blogger at Manhattan Nest and a former Small Cool winner), and Orlando Soria (Designer, Creative Director for Homepolish, Blogger at Hommemaker) voted on your choices for the top 5 homes in each of our divisions. I just did the math (and checked it twice!) and now I'm excited to share the division winners and finalists for the smallest coolest home of 2015 with you. Check them out, congratulate them on their division win (yesssss!) and then visit the main contest page to vote for the home you'd like to see as the Grand Prize winner for 2015. And, don't delay - voting is only open for one day!

Justina: I adore the bed nook that doubles as storage, and all the wood! The space is small but remains airy, bright and cozy and somehow also manages to look spacious.

Orlando: I loved how airy and bright this place is. Megan somehow figured out how to combine complete efficiency with warmth and comfort to make a space that feels sophisticated and elegant without feeling fussy.
