Brooke’s favorite OTHER entry:
Easy as pie: Josh’s “Workin’ Around the Cat Tree”, number 28, from Seattle. In this contest, I saw one too many monochromatic designs, cold spaces organized perfectly for a photo shoot but not for real life…
Josh’s “Workin’ Around the Cat Tree”
Josh made his space vividly colorful & warm, using every color of the spectrum really, without being distasteful, which is what I perceived this competition to be about. His space looked so interesting & unique, so comfortable, so full & fearless. His space wasn’t about using expensive designer furniture; he made it his own using rich, bright & vibrant colors. Josh deserves to win this contest, in my opinion.
What do you want to do next in your home, if anything, to improve it?:
This contest came at a perfect time for me. I moved out of that apartment a week ago into a much bigger space with lots more light. I have sold most of my things, including all my white IKEA furniture, so I’m essentially starting from scratch AND I have tons more room to fill (ie. 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a giant living area). Ideally, I’d love to put just as much color & life into my new space. I have visions of dark wood, more drapery, less clutter, clean lines, etc.. Overall, I want more sophistication & style. I want it personal & unique.
