I'm on Apartment Therapy! I'd love your vote!

Wahoo, I'm SO excited that my guest room is featured on Apartment Therapy as part of the Room for Color Contest! The prizes include all kinds of neat goodies from Sherwin Williams and others, but mostly I'm just SO excited to have some images from my home on this inspirational community site.

Our guest room, with its dramatic navy blue wall, is in the "Dark" category and needs more "Favorite" hearts than the others to progress to the next round (by October 29!). So help me out, and log in to Apartment Therapy or sign up if you're new, and at the bottom of the post about my guest room, click the "Favorite" heart button!
**I'm hoping I can get them to change the title of the room; I must have been confused when I entered it, but obvs a more appropriate title would be something about the room, not me! Hopefully I can get that clarified, and mention my blog separately. :)**

Also, pin away if you like the room and want to share :)...

    Done as well! I never even heard of Apartment Therapy but I love this contest idea! Do they do this every year?

    1. Ohhhh, you have lots of inspiration to look through if you're new to AT! I don't know, I'm guessing they do something similar at least once a year...

  2. Voted! I love the room! Very peaceful and fresh!

  3. Done Suzannah. Cool aquatic colors selection.

  4. what a great room, I love the colors!

  5. Yay, thanks, everyone! Keep sharing the good news! =D

  6. I saw your room on AT and must say congrats! The only problem I have with your room is the black mirror above the bed is too close to the navy wall behind. I really wish it was a different colour, it just seems like it gets lost. I love everything else though!

  7. Long time reader here (of both your blog and Apartment Therapy). You room is so nice, voted!

    would love to know where you got the mirror from! Sheree
