Shaw Floors HGTV Home Design Challenge - It's Time to Vote and Enter to Win!

As you know (warning:  I'll be mentioning this here and there all month long - I'm that excited to share this with you!), Cassity from Remodelaholic and I teamed up to create a coastal  cottage room designed around the beautiful Shaw Floors' handscraped maple (Style: Rockbridge/Color:  Dusk) and Ikat Panel (multi) area rug. It was a dream come true experience to design a room around this flooring. 

I still smile every time I see this room. 

I'd love for our family room to look like this and I had so much fun designing it. 

Every detail, flooring, rug, paint color and accessories are comfortable and I feel right at home.

When decorating a room, do what you love...

The Shaw Floors HGTV Home Design Challenge Contest and Sweepstakes is up and running NOW through September 30th!  You can vote for your favorite room everyday! 
Simply "like" Shaw on Facebook and vote for your favorite room (any of the 5 rooms designed by 5 teams - some amazingly talented and super friendly DIY and design bloggers) and while we'd love your vote for Cassity & Roeshel, all of the rooms are gorgeous.

As camera shy as I am (deer in the headlights syndrome!), I wanted to share our experience with the Shaw Floors HGTV Home Design Challenge.  Please don't laugh at me too hard!  Cassity is a natural.  Me, not so much. 

Here are the videos that show our interview with Lisa LaPorta (HGTV's Designed to Sell), describing our room: 

Cassity and I getting to know each other (she's "awesome"!):

and a video that gives information on the event. Lisa Laporta is that cute in real life!

Just voted...and I will try to remember everyday! I heart heart heart your room. The colors are sooo pretty, and you both did such a great job! The room has so many conversation pieces! That is what I love most, you look around and people ask, love that light, the color is so neat, etc. etc...! I guess I made my point, I love your room LOL!

Seriously - yesterday I was wondering when we would hear more about this room. It is so swoon worthy!! After seeing the other rooms - which are all amazing - yours was still my favorite. The colors that pop - wowza!! I will try my best to remember to vote each day. Again - swoon worthy job. I just wish the grand prize was the entire room!!!

I also follow remodelaholic. And as for my other entry on which rug I'd choose, forgot to mention where I'd put it. Dining room or living room for sure--both have horrible floors that need to be covered up. STAT!
