Update: Congratulations to our random winners of Design Camp tickets – Kristina R, Shelly and AJ R.

Are you obsessed with interior design? Do you dream about growing your brand? Then pack your bags, because it’s time for camp — Design Camp, that is. Design Camp is a two-day-long meeting of the minds for interior designers, architects, bloggers, artists, trendsetters and more. The brainchild of celebrity interior designers Lori Dennis and Kelli Ellis, this event in Orange County, Calif. is for designers at every level.

Kicking off with a meet-and-greet cocktail party, Design Camp provides you with the opportunity to learn and network with some of the most respected professionals (aka your Camp Counselors) in the interior design business. With seminars on design and networking events galore, Design Camp is THE place for beginners and design veterans to mingle. Kathryn M. Ireland, Nathan Turner, and Timothy Corrigan are just a few of the counselors that will lead courses on creating global design, navigating social media and building a personal brand.

We’re giving three lucky Design Happens readers a chance to win a free ticket* to the Orange County Design Camp on October 9-11. To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment below. This contest’s question: What event are you looking forward to at Design Camp? We’ll choose three random winners next Friday, August 2.

Update: Congratulations to this month’s random winner, Christina Z. Check back next month for another great giveaway.

Father’s Day is around the corner — have you found the perfect gift yet? If your dad is more into tablets, apps and surround sound than golfing and fishing, this Freebie Friday giveaway might be the perfect present. One lucky winner will take home this high-tech toaster from Magimix.

Freebie Fridays - Magimix Vision Toaster

The Magimix Vision Toaster is the only model with a viewing window to let you watch the toasting process in action. Quartz heating elements produce crisp, uniformly brown toast, and the model comes in three glossy colors: black, red and almond cream.

This is sure to be a showpiece in your dad’s high-tech kitchen. Already got Dad’s Day covered? It would be an equally cool gift for a new college grad’s first apartment, or a gift to yourself for being savvy enough to check out Design Happens’ monthly giveaway. The choice is yours!

To win a Vision Toaster in your choice of color, answer this month’s question in the comments below: What’s the best Father’s Day gift you’ve ever given (or received)?

Mother’s Day is around the corner, and if you’re like me, you’re still searching for that perfect gift.
