And the winnner is...

Nope, too early for the Domino contest winner...but apparently O at Home magazine held a decorating contest for it's readers...and the results are in. Three winner's are featured, but one of them, Kirsten Hollister had some pretty cute ideas for her home...so cute, I couldn't help but think...why hadn't I thought of that?


Take the vintage mirror that she turned in to a message board...okay, I'm going out and doing that tomorrow!


She uses the good 'ol repetition never hurt anybody method on her shelving unit here...


Using a bed as a sofa helps with space...oh, but the footrest was made from an old pillow sham!


A small bedroom sure, but painting horizontal stripes on the walls gives the illusion of a grander space.

There's much more to this home and other winner's homes as well, in the most recent issue of O at Home...but really, that cute 'lil mirror/chalkboard thing sold me!

I love the entire room in the first picture but love love love the idea of turning the mirror into a message board. Ditto to wanting to do this too.

I love that birdhouse and sofa bed. And I agree that mirror trick is too cute! Love the whole nook she has set up there!
