Hello friends! Today I’m sharing my tips on What to Decorate and Make in November to get you organized for the holidays! I also wanted to extend a huge THANK YOU for all of your kind words of support, your votes and your beautiful compliments on my Liveable Luxe living room design that’s in the La-Z-Boy Design Dash contest! You’ve all been so incredibly gracious! More on that below.
In case you missed it, I designed a living room in just 36 hours in the fun La-Z-Boy Design Dash Blogger Challenge and my room is in a design contest!
You can vote for your favorite room (there are 5 rooms in total) and your vote enters you in a $10,000 La-Z-Boy furniture giveaway! WOW! Isn’t that an amazing prize? You can vote each day too 🙂
So if you haven’t voted today please head on over to the contest website and vote for my room if you like it! (It’s the one with the big statement mirror over the cream sofa). Good luck at winning lots of gorgeous La-Z-Boy furniture!
