2017 Categories

Review this year's categories and choose one (or more!) that are a great fit for your inspired designs.

Waterside Retreats: Show us your stunning waterside properties with impressive water views that stun. From beach homes, lakeside retreats, ocean properties, or homes with a water view we want to see your breathtaking waterside retreats.  

Countryside Escapes: These relaxing retreats are perfect for unwinding and embracing the great outdoors. Show how you combine relaxation and style into a Cape Cod home, farmhouse, Colonial style home, sprawling estate or mountainside retreat that evokes soothing content.

Curb Appeal: Great first impressions are created with outstanding curb appeal that draws attention and acknowledgement. First impressions can be enhanced by outstanding front yard landscaping, architectural details or grand home entryways and foyers. Show us the homes with amazing architectural details that will have us falling in love at first sight.

Big City Digs: Big city living spaces offer a serene escape from the fast-paced urban life, while also showing off the stunning cityscape. Show us how you add style to a high-rise, brownstone, loft or urban home.

Kid-Tastic Spaces: Designing a kids’ space takes extra creativity and imagination to produce the perfect balance between functional and fun. Show us your lively playrooms, treehouses, outdoor play areas, homework rooms or game rooms with a kid-tastic vibe!

Pattern + Texture: Using pattern or texture is a sensational way to add interest and depth through visual or tangible elements. Show us your spaces that incorporate these elements through accent walls, sleek metals, eye- catching fabrics, 3-D tile, etc.

Master Retreats: Essential, everyday spaces that are far more important than given credit for. From bright and cheery to impressive and sophisticated, share your skillfully designed master suites.

Kitchen + Dining: From cozy breakfast nooks and family dinner tables to gourmet kitchens made for a chef or a kitchen designed with guests in mind, these spaces act as the gathering place bringing family and friends together.

Crazy for Color: Have you designed a home or room that excellently uses colors throughout? From saturated shades to happy hues, these spaces are expertly designed to be cohesive and create a stand out space filled with pops of color.

Dramatic Transformations: Have you transformed a space with dramatic before and after images leaving others speechless? We want to show off your space that displays a striking transformation from underwhelming to impressive.

Living Spaces: These spaces are where everyone goes to gather. These rooms are where a family lives, entertains and relaxes. We want to see those living rooms, outdoor spaces and basement retreats, that provide a hangout for all members of the family.

Living Large in Small Spaces: Whether they call the city, country, the water or the road home small spaces prove that less really can be more. We want to see your expertly designed small spaces that show how to live large in a small space.
