Our first Design Dynamo contest has finally come to a close, with much success! You submitted so many gorgeous spaces that it was hard not to choose them all. In the end, we narrowed it down to 10 fabulous finalists who collected over 5,700 of your votes!
The final days of the contest were really a close call – both Charlotte’s Treehouse Dream and The Lynn’s Shabby Chic Peek were neck and neck. As midnight approached, and after much anticipation, our winner was revealed. Without further ado, the winner of our contest and of a $500 PoshTots Gift Certificate is Charlotte’s Treehouse Dream.
We are in awe of this nursery and, quite honestly, it was one of our easiest picks for a finalist. Michelle of New Jersey not only designed this magical escape, she also hand painted the beautiful walls that make it so unique. We were swept away by the hot air balloon mobile, and are still smitten with the treehouses and birds that have “escaped” the mural around the room.
In the words of our winner,
“I like to create “worlds” for children to live in. I wanted the prettiest, sweetest and most peaceful world one could imagine. I wanted to teach my daughter to love nature and appreciate the earth’s beauty. I also wanted her to understand that imagination can make life happier. So, in short, I truly believe that having her live in this world will shape the person she becomes. There are lots of details that I could not sum up in the pictures. “Carved” in one of the trees is a heart with an arrow through it that has mine, my husbands and my daughters initials inside and, lower to the ground, scratch marks and my cats’ names. There is a soft rainbow over the dresser. I think rainbows should make a comeback from the eighties – they rarely appear in designs anymore and it’s a shame! The furniture, with the exception of the crib, are family heirlooms that I refinished and switched the knobs to ceramic rosebud knobs. The rug features frogs wearing different outfits for a touch of whimsy and imagination. It’s quite a small room, but it appears much larger because you have the sensation that you are outside in a sweet, dreamy world. ”
Bravo, Michelle! We know that Charlotte will have a gorgeous place to rest her head for many years to come.
