Then when you get home after, say, a long day at work, you step into this? It would feel like a dream every single day. I absolutely love the soothing green Vern used for this sophisticated high-rise pad.

Starting August 18 at 9 am ET, you can enter twice per day— once on HGTV.com and once on FrontDoor.com— for a chance to win this beauty. But first, don’t forget to check out what Vern has to say about decorating the Urban Oasis 2011 apartment And tour every room for details on his stellar design.

After clicking through the pictures and taking a guided video tour with our feature blogger Brian Patrick Flynn, I’ve decided the living room (with that spectacular view) is my favorite room. What’s your favorite room in the apartment?

    So, how much are the monthly maintenance fees? Even if I won the place, I bet I could not even come close to living there. After paying the taxes for winning the place, then paying the taxes for selling the place (assuming I do not use the money to buy another place), there would be a nice, little nest egg, but not enough to completely retire on. And that is assuming that a buyer could be found. If I couldn't sell it very quickly, I would have to give it back. :-( ( Sometimes winning isn't really winning. It is spectacular and beautiful though. As usual, Vern did a gorgeous, classy decorating job.

    I would worry about that later! I love the view and Vern rocked it.

  4. WOW, what an apartment! I'd have to say the living room is my favorite spot. The furnishings are amazing, but that view is to die for!
