3. Yesterday’s announcement that we are letting you readers design the studio in our home was one of those decisions that could have bombed and had the potential to be embarrassing for us. Easily, no one could have virtually shown up and voted. But it was quite the opposite. The votes are still rolling in, but the winner is pretty obvious:
White walls and a painted ceiling by a landslide! Chris said, “Oh! That’s the one I voted for.” I started cracking up because I didn’t expect him to vote. I chose every option as one that would look good and work in the space and I would have honestly been happy going any direction. This weekend, we hope to get the room prepped and painted a crisp white and have swatches for you to choose for the ceiling color on Monday. Yup, you’re picking the color. Your work is far from done in this room so get your color and design hat on. (?? just roll with it).
4. This announcement is special, just for you readers. RugsUSA has been a partner with us before we even had much of a readership–we love them for that. We are huge fans of their area rugs and have two in our own home hanging out in the dining room and guest room. Even more than that, I find myself recommending their area rugs to a lot of clients when I do custom mood boards. My friend over there has agreed to offer our readers 25% off site wide (applicable to any area rug) through May 20th. Just use promo code BLOG25. Here are a few of my recent (and favorite) client recommendations to give you a starting point to apply your promo code:
|1, 2, 3, 4|
5. Last thing, we would love if you would cast your vote today for Our Exterior Melodrama video (which we also got done this week, read that post here) in CertainTeed’s exterior makeover contest. We are crossing our fingers for this one. It only takes a few seconds. You can vote once every day by clicking the “Love it” button right here.
Psst. I wasn’t paid to promote Rugs USA, or their products. We really are just fans who like to hook their readers up.
