Interior Design Contest invites public to judge
Those who enjoy looking through interior design magazines for home decorating inspirations have a unique opportunity during the month of April - online judging in Decorating Den Interiors' International Dream Room contest.
The voting site is www.iddvoting.com. There are nearly 200 sets of before and after photos. The categories are: bathrooms, bedrooms, children's rooms, commercial, dining rooms, family rooms, home offices, kitchens, living rooms, window treatments, outdoor spaces, and miscellaneous. Visitors to the site can vote in any or all of the categories.
Decorating Den Interiors, the largest home furnishings and interior design franchise company in North America, has been holding this contest for its more than 325 owners and designers through the U.S. and Canada as a company-only event, but this year decided to open a phase of the judging to the public.
"These are real rooms for real people with real budgets," says Carol Bugg, ASID, DDCD, vice president and director of design for Decorating Den Interiors. "For 27 years, this contest has been judged only by journalists of national interior design and home magazines. This year, we thought more people would like to see the vast variety of designs by our award winning decorators throughout the U.S. and Canada and vote for the ones that inspire them the most, so we have added this segment of the judging. There is no cost to view the designs and judge."
"In past years, many of the entries in our Dream Room contest have been featured in national and regional magazines. With our online voting, we hope to give even more people inspiration for adding those beautiful touches that make their house a home," said Carol.
By judging, visitors to the voting site will be participating in the selection of a Peoples' Choice Award in each category, which will be presented at Decorating Den Interiors international conference and market to be held in Atlanta May 6-11.
