  1. I want to go to Design Camp because many of my great friends have gone…I haven't…and I'm jealous of all of the fun that they have had! Being around my creative friends and making new connections within this amazing community is my favorite way to spend time! #pickme!

    I want to go to design camp because I just bought a new (old) mid-century home in the desert! I've got so much to contemplate! How incredible would it be to go to school for three days and turn right around and put it to work? Such potential! Please let me in!

    Plus it's pretty amazing to be around such crazy inspiring people who are passionate about what they do.

    I would love to go to Design Camp to learn from so many great designers! I know this camp will have such a great impact on my education on the interior design industry. I also think its fun to be able to make new friends with other campers who have the same love for interior design! All while traveling to beautiful Seattle! Thank you HGTV for giving away tickets! Hope you pick me!

    I would love to go to design camp. I have degree in design and worked in the field for many years before having kids. When not renovating my 80 year old home I help my friends do projects in their home and occasional freelance jobs. My kids are budding young designers themselves thanks to all the watching HGTV.

  6. I would LOVE to go to design camp! I decided to follow my passion and launched a design business in the last two years but still have so much to learn. I would love to learn from those that have paved the way and are willing to share their experiences with those of us just starting out.
