Design Star!

Hey there! I hope you had a wonderful Fourth holiday weekend! We had such a lovely time…yet again I feel so fortunate to have such an an incredible family and group of friends surrounding us. :)

I’m thisclose to done with our family room and I’m SO thrilled with it. I just need to clean it up and then take some pics. I’ll share it with you tomorrow!

For today, I have a fun little somethin’ somethin’ for one of you. :)

If you are an HGTV nut like me, you know the next Design Star season starts next week!:

HGTV design star

Whoo! It’s reality TV and decorating all wrapped up into one – I could just pass out from the giddy. ;)

The first episode airs Monday (the 11th) at 9 p.m. EST. Because I love the show so very much, I’ve been checking out the contestants online over the past few weeks.

This year they include professional interior designers, retail merchandisers, stylists and artists:

design star contestants

And the first HGTV Design Star champion, cutie David Bromstad, will be a mentor to each of them. I love watching him and think he’ll be a GREAT addition to the show:david bromstad

And HGTV favorites Genevieve Gorder, Candice Olson and Vern Yip will be the judges again this year, along with some fun celebrity guests:design star judges

They look so happy. ;)

There are 12 designers competing this season and you can check out their work here.

These photos are just a few of my favorite spaces:

I can’t wait to see what they have up their sleeves!

So get THIS! To celebrate the start of the new Design Star season, the lovely folks at HGTV are giving away one $100 AMEX gift card to one of you lucky ducks!

Yep…$100 buckaroos! That goes a LONG way to changing up your own space!!

All you have to do to enter is comment! For fun, tell us what room you would use $100 on. I’d love to hear!

This one is only open to US residents and is open through next Monday, the 11th, so you’ve got plenty of time to enter! WHOO HOO!

Have fun, good luck, and I’ll be back again tomorrow! :)

  28. I'd put it towards a craigslist headboard. Been married 8 years and sadly, we still don't have a headboard or bed. A box spring and mattress on a bed frame just doesn't seem to have the "WOW" factor I'm looking for.

I would absolutely love to do something in my studio/office, but I'm sure my husband would probably re-paint the master bedroom, or maybe frame the HUGE mirror in the master bathroom.

  164. I would use it for our basement, As soon as a couple of rooms are finished I'll be able to move my craft room down and what is my craft room now is going to be an office/school room for our boys...which will mean finally getting their computer and desk OUT of my dining room :)

    I've got my DVR set and ready to go for the new season!

  173. We are going to turn my son's room to a more teenage type instead of juvenille room this year. I would use the money for his room.

  177. Let's see.... we recently have had a case of bed bugs (EWWEEEE, GROSS, SHUDDER!!!!) and threw away our mattress because it made us almost throw up at the thought of having to ever sleep on it again.....
    So I'd use $100 to put towards a new mattress. That's gotta count at changing my space, right?
    (until we get a new mattress- it's sofa/air mattress time for the hubs and I.- sigh.)

  178. I would use it in my boys bathroom redo. My son has given me his requests for the bathroom and I'm going to need some money.

  179. Oh man, we are finally upgrading from nasty builder-grade carpet (left over from the previous owner--yuck!) to a nice laminate. I would use the moolah for a nice rug for my little girl's room. Or for the lumber to build a great big console table. Or for the butcher block we want to put on our kitchen island. Or....

  180. How fun! I am saving up to buy a new desk system for my office/play room so that's where this money would go. Hope I win!

  181. We are in the middle of a basement overhaul, so it would go towards some sheetrock. And maybe a bucket of nails. Or maybe a first aid kit.

  182. Hands down...something to spruce up my master bedroom. Thank you for the chance!!

  183. I would use it to help change my screened porch. We're putting tongue and groove bead board on the ceiling and painting it white.

  184. My house has no entryway and is a bit of a cave. I would love to buy a window insert for my front door that would bring tons of light in! Also, the hubby still owes me a day of labor for mother's day so I'm looking for a little DIY project. :)

  185. I am hoping to watch Design Star this season and get some inspiration. I have been working on my living room and kitchen lately. If I were to win a gift card I would use it to buy new hardware for my kitchen cabinets. What we have is definitely not to my taste.

  186. I would love to put the 100 dollars toward new curtains in our living room/dining room. We have 21 children so the ones we have hanging are pretty dingy!

  187. My bedroom needs some quite a bit of work, so I think I would have to start in there... it's pretty boring as it is.

  188. The kids' bathroom. One of my sons pulled off the soap dish and broke a tile over a year ago. Despite best efforts, water has gotten into the dry wall behind the tile and now it is moldy and many tiles have fallen off. The whole wall (which has a small window and the tub and is mostly tile) has to be completely replaced. No idea where the rest of the money will come from, but it's a scary health hazard.

  189. I would love to spend the $100 on my newborn's son's nursery. We haven't finished his room yet, and I would love to have his room ready before he's a month old!

    ReplyDelete
  190. I would use the $100 on our brand new house that we JUST bought!! I can't even decide what room since we have so much to do!

    ReplyDelete
  191. I would use it to buy pretty pillows for our sad couch and chair and a half. I'm not complaining because these couches were graciously given to us by some family friends when we got married... but they have seen their day. And because we can't afford new ones yet I need pretty pillows to liven up the space! :)

  192. What a fun giveaway! You'll have to add a link after the show starts to where they're showing them online...we got rid of cable. (HGTV is pretty much the only channel I miss). I would spend the $100 on new accessories for my living room. It's all hand-me-down items and I need something new! Thanks!
