We had thousands of nominations roll in for our first ever Homebody Awards and we thought we’d close out the year announcing the winners this year (along with the two runners up in each category because, so many times, it was so close!). We know first-hand how much work goes into each of these projects and the Homebody Awards were started to celebrate excellence across the board. I’m sure they’ll grow and evolve over the years but as we pulled up the nominees in each category, I was so humbled and as inspired to see so many of us working on our homes and sharing these intimate spaces with the world. You all deserve an award. 

I encourage you to check out and follow all 12 of the winners as well as the runner ups–so much talent and inspiration to carry you (and your projects!) into 2020!

    Has Jenny Komenda revealed her kitchen besides that picture on Instagram? I read her blog and I have been waiting for it but maybe I missed it?

  2. Amanda says:

    This is a wonderful way to share the love. So interesting to see the consistencies and trends throughout the different spaces. Can’t wait to see this continue year after year.

  3. I love these awards! These are all such inspiring spaces!

  4. Gina says:

    Best bathroom design = 2/3 Wisconsinites!!! Way to go @ispydiy and @undecoratedhome!!!!

  5. Courtney says:

    Jenny Komenda all over this post!!

  6. This is such an amazing round up. And sooooo many beautiful spaces!!

  7. LD says:

    Are there blog posts to go with the instagram pics so we can see the before and after? Trying to find the Komenda post about the kitchen winner. Seems like a blog post with all of the work would be the big winner over a single pic.

  8. Jesseca says:

    I loved this! I found a few that were new to me too.

  9. Kristen says:

    I absolutely love how you promote other designers. I’ve found great accounts through you and I’m looking forward to checking out these new to me designers!

  10. So honored to be a runner up!!! Love all the winners! So well deserved!!
