Hello all! I entered a contest with Surya Rugs for the best use of one of their rugs in a design project. Here is my photo:
It is one of my favorite rooms! Can I appeal to you if you are on Pinterest to take a moment and vote for me? I am a close second now and the contest ends at midnight on the 10th!

Wednesday night I had the best time at the Austin ASID 27th Design Excellence Awards event. I signed up to be on the committee and was happy to arrive early, stuff gift bags and generally try to be useful. Once everything got going I was able to visit many of the Vendor display tables and learned about a bunch of great new tile and countertop products, as well as hardware, sun/shade solutions, etc.
Here are some photos from the event- can you believe this beautiful setting?
How lucky am I to live here? Look at the view (yes, that is the river in the background)!
The lady above is doing a bean bag toss into the marble. I tried myself and actually won a Starbucks gift card- can’t wait to cash that in!
There were well over 100 people at the event.
The true purpose of the event was to present awards for the best design projects which Austin area designers, architects, model home companies, etc, created over the past year.
I was very honored to win 3 awards for 3 different projects- Best Traditional Residence over 3,500 sq ft, Best Traditional Residence under 3,500 sq ft and Best Singular Space! It was a great night all around.
What a wonderful way to wind down 2012! Can’t wait for even better things in 2013!
