Time flies when you’re … frantically entering the 2011 HGTV Green Home sweepstakes like a mad woman every day! I know it can’t possibly feel like it, but it’s June 2nd already. Which means it’s the last day to enter for a chance to win this stunning Denver home, a 2011 GMC Terrain and $100,000 cash! (I also want to know why it’s like August hot the first week of June. Back to the sweeps.) This is one of those bittersweet, day-after-Christmas type days for us at HGTV. Do we really want to give away this luxurious prairie-style home with a deck and patio. (It’s really grown on us!). But, yes, we are thrilled to see it go to a deserving HGTV fan.
For totally-so-not-fair reasons, I’m not eligible to win the home. Despite this sad, sad fact, I’ve compiled a list of my top three ”2011 HGTV Green Home To-Dos” just in case there is some fluke in the system and they don’t realize I work here. (Just kidding, I haven’t entered – sigh.)
1). Organize all of my clothes, accessories and jewelry in the fabulous master bath’s closet. The master suite’s layout is smart, smart smart! Putting the huge closet in the bathroom, rather than the bedroom, ensures the sleeping space stays soothing and clutter-free.
2). Host a casual dinner party in the eclectic dining room. I adore the unexpected lighting and non-traditional decor of this entertaining space. The sliding glass doors lead outside to the deck area — my party can effortlessly move from indoors to outdoors. I’ll be hostess of the year.
3). LIVE in the “do” room. Have you seen this room? It’s genius! I’ve always wanted a home with a craft room and this just takes it above and beyond. It’s a craft studio AND laundry station, home office, gift-wrapping station AND reading room all in one space! I’d be doing a lot in the “do” room.
Not only is this home green, it’s smart! It has everything I need and a ton of things I didn’t realize I needed until now. (Like a dog washing station in the garage!) Do me a favor — go enter for a chance to win it on my behalf. Two times, once on HGTV.com and again on Frontdoor.com. Good luck!
