$5,000 Interior Design Giveaway: The Ultimate GH iDesign Giveaway Entries That Made The Blog

The Ultimate GH iDesign Giveaway is well on its way! If you haven't entered to win...why haven't you?! If you don't upload photos or tell us why you should win, it takes a total of 45 seconds to enter. That means that it could take you 45 seconds to be the winner of a $5,000 giveaway. I may be partial to this giveaway, because it was and is my baby, but it blows my mind that more people haven't entered to win. Now...that doesn't mean that tons of people haven't already entered to win, but I am just surprised that more people haven't entered to win. The thought of having fabulous designers take the time to get to know me and my design aesthetics, and then create an entire room tailored to me sounds delectable! The winner gets to harness their inner HGTV-self and purchase decor from top online furniture and decor stores on someone else's dime....COME ON, YOU'VE GOT ME DROOLING OVER THIS OPPORTUNITY! If you don't have a room you want made over, can you enter to win a room makeover for me? I have gone ahead and read through all of the entries we've received up-to-date. Here are just a few of our favorite photos and descriptions! **Please remember that winners will be chosen at random and photos/descriptions are an optional choice to enter to win**


A Master Bedroom That Needs GHID's Magic Wand

how not to style a master bedroom, before and after bedroom makeover photos, how to incorporate storage into your bedroom

Our bedroom seems big but cluttered, even though we have storage space but doesn't seem to be the right kind or size maybe...need the GHID magic wand! Also, the window is big and has a great view but the wood blinds don't seem to do it justice. - Bend, OR


Great Bones With Tons Of Potential, But No Design Direction

win a home interior design package, before and after photos of room makeovers, how to win an interior design makeover

We have a beautiful 1899 Queen Anne. It's got great bones, but we need tons of help decorating the place. It's like a blank canvas... except it's, you know, plaster. Lots of great original architectural details to work with, but a lot of old 1970s and 1980s additions (like that hideous ceiling fan) that need to go. We love the house to death, and it oozes potential! - Deadwood, SD

Crazy About Design, But Don't Have The Budget For Expensive Taste

the ultimate gh idesign entries, rooms that have been entered in home giveaways, interior design giveaways

I am crazy about design. I work in the field of advertising and I spend much of my time looking through websites, visiting design stores, shopping for the pieces and textures that inspire. Unfortunately, my budget keeps me from reaching the look that I truly want and after 10 years in my condo I desperately want a fresh new look. I love to entertain and inspire my friends and neighbors to improve their environments through design. If I were to win this contest I would be a huge voice and representative via social media and my large network of friends. In addition, I'm the guy who will make you smile and laugh through the whole process! Thanks for this opportunity!! - Portland, OR

cozy living room, why my room deserves a makeover, enter to win a huge giveaway

I love Garrison's style (we are from the Northwest) and would die to have him redesign my family room. The room is a very awkward size and I just can't seem to make anything work. Plus I have small children and I need a room that is not only beautiful but functional for our family. - Fort Collins, CO


Help! My Marriage Needs A Design Intervention

how to decorate a home from an empty slate, just bought a home and need design direction, online interior design services

I recently purchased a home in FL and the living room has me stumped.  The open floor plan room is dominated by a 1990's wall of mirrored shelves.  Currently, the room is filled with furnishings left by the previous owner.  My husband and I have painted, hung crown molding and styled all the other rooms.  We walk into this space and are lost on how to make the room bright (no windows), comfortable and not a slave to the massive wall unit.  Our marriage could use a design intervention. - Hobe Sound, FL

Favorite Quote About Being Design Blind

Our couch is older than our son who is 19! We need major help with decorating as my husband is color blind and I am design blind. If you are up for a challenge, our house is most deserving and would be the most grateful. - Cedartown, GA
