Congratulations to Carrie McDougall, the winner of HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway! Carrie knew exactly which Angelo Surmelis chair she wanted to claim as her prize – one of the fan favorites, the Hepburn in black-and-white vine fabric. We’ve asked her to snap a few photos once the chair finds its way to its new home.
Thanks to everyone who participated. We hope you had as much fun playing with us as we had creating our little scavenger hunt.

After a week of clues for HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway, the last clue is finally here. By now you definitely know that Angelo is the host of Rate My Space, but did you know that the show was inspired by our user generated gallery of the same name? And this year we launched a Holiday section to let our fans show off all their exquisite holiday designs and decorations. One of our top contributors, nyclq, uploaded a gallery jam packed with ways to update your dining room throughout the holiday season.
For the 5th clue, we want to know 2 different ways that nyclq dresses up her dining room table for the holidays. There are lots of great ideas in there, so send us any two.
Now comes the part that everyone has been asking all week: “What do I do with all these answers?” It’s as simple as sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org by 12 noon Eastern on Monday, December 7, 2009. Use the subject line “HGTV’s angelo:HOME Holiday Gift Giveaway” and provide the answer to each of the five clues in the body of the email. The winner will be chosen randomly from all of the correct emails and announced here on the blog on Wednesday, December 9, 2009.

Our friends at Etsy are back this week with another Get The Look: Home Decor Edition inspired by rooms from Designers Portfolio. This week they dive into traditional styling and have some great finds for your traditional living room, kitchen, bedroom and bathroom. Some of my favorites are:
We were so inspired by Etsy that we felt like continuing the fun by taking a look at items for a traditional home office and a traditional dining room.
This week we take a trip to the east coast to chat with designer Andreas Charalambous. Andreas is the principal designer at Forma Design, who’s work has won several awards this year from the American Institute of Architects and Mid-Atlantic International Interior Design Association. You definitely don’t want to miss his artwork over at andreascharalambous.com. Andreas also has several spaces on Designers’ Portfolio.
Today’s HGTV looks very different than it did when we launched in December 1994. We’ve been reflecting fondly about those early days around the office, and from those conversations was born new series for Design Happens, HGTV Vintage. We decided to open up the HGTV vaults and take a look back into our past.
This week we set the DeLorean to June 2, 1996 to an episode of a show called What’s Your Hobby hosted by Eric Boardman. In it, Eric interviews Sharon Moyer, a rabid puppet enthusiast, who shows us her extensive puppet collection of marionettes, stick puppets and hand puppets.
