There’s one downside to working here at HGTV.com: I can’t enter to win this year’s stunning HGTV Dream Home near Park City, Utah. Lucky for you, you can (starting December 29!). Until then, we can both ogle at the amazing mountain views…
…the airy dining room….
…the sleek, modern kitchen…
…the rough-hewn stone in the great room…
…and all the other amazing features large and small. Then, help pick housewarming gifts for the HGTV Dream Home winner — and enter to win your own gift set.

So my production company is in Park City, Utah, shooting the online videos for the 2012 HGTV Dream Home. Um? Oh. My. Gawd. For any of you who’ve yet to experience this magical state, which is easily the most gorgeous place in the world, you are missin’ out, y’all! Everywhere you look, there’s picturesque scenery packed with to-die-for colors.
Inspiring Kitchens from HGTV Dream Homes Past
And although Utah itself is incredible, the 2012 HGTV Dream Home is just as spectacular. Designer Linda Woodrum has done it again. This time, the house is right smack in the center of a rustic piece of property, which looks out over the Provo River and onto gorgeous Utah mountains. The interiors are transitional and neutral, spotlighting the blue tones from the Utah sky, which Linda used in a subtle, sophisticated manner.

And although I’m stoked to be here working on it, I can’t help but think to myself, “It really sucks that I’m disqualified from winning it.”
All y’all who are eligible to win better plan to get crackin’ when the sweepstakes starts on Dec. 29, 2011, at 9am ET. (You’ll be able to tour the house starting Dec. 1 — until then, stay up-to-date at Dream Home Central.) A life in Utah would be the closest thing to heaven on earth there is. Stay tuned!
So, did everyone watch the HGTV Dream Home 2011 Giveaway special on Saturday? If you missed it, don’t worry. Check out the winner videos to see the ambush by designer Monica Petersen. Plus, find out who won the HGTV Dream Home 2011 Housewarming Giveaway. (I’m jealous of both winners!)
Congratulations to the new owner of the fabulous mountain lodge in Stowe, Vt. And everyone get ready for HGTV Green Home 2011 fun! (You could be the next winner!)
Picture this: You’re sitting at home drinking your morning coffee just like always when something happens that completely alters your reality. Your heart starts racing. Your jaw’s hanging open in an unflattering manner. And your coffee is now splattered across the floor. I imagine that’s what it feels like to find out you’re the grand prize winner of the HGTV Dream Home 2011, a 2011 GMC Acadia Denali and 500,000 smackeroos. (And if it were me, there would be a lot of high-pitched screaming involved when host Monica Pedersen walked in, surrounded by television cameras.)
If you’re like me, you’re dying to watch the drama unfold when this year’s winner gets handed the keys…to the mountain lodge and car! Tune in TONIGHT at 8 p.m. EST for the HGTV Dream Home 2011 Giveaway special, including a dreamy home tour by designer John Gidding. Plus, find out which Vermont-inspired housewarming gifts made it into the home, thanks to your votes. Some lucky voter is going to win a duplicate set, too. Maybe you? Find out who!
And if you’ve fallen in love with this house and its designs, then you can add furnishings from the Stowe, Vt. Dream Home to your home by touring your favorite rooms and shopping to your heart’s content. (Don’t worry, we won’t tell on you.)
I just love surprises, don’t you? That’s why I’ll be watching the HGTV Dream Home 2011 Giveaway special tomorrow, March 19, at 8 p.m. EST. Designer Monica Pedersen and the HGTV team will ambush the very lucky winner of this year’s giveaway with not only the keys to the HGTV Dream Home 2011, but also with $500,000 and a 2011 GMC Acadia Denali. You won’t want to miss designer John Gidding’s drool-worthy tour of the entire home, inside and out. Plus the Vermont-inspired housewarming gifts you all voted for will also be revealed. If you voted, you could win them, too! (I love them all, but I have to say, this leather wine carrier would be perfect for summer picnics.)
I know I’m not alone when I say this: I’m completely lusting over Dream Home’s decor, from the outdoor lounge chairs to the master bedroom linens. Even if you didn’t win, you can own a piece of the home and all the stellar furnishings that come with it. Tour your favorite Dream Home 2011 rooms to uncover the featured products you can drop in your electronic shopping cart. I have officially added these three beauties:

I’ve been a die-hard fan of the Vermont resort-style home since day one. There’s something so appealing about a warm, rustic home surrounded by snow-covered mountains and sky-high trees nestled in an active resort town. Wouldn’t you agree?
Here are four reasons to submit your last two (or first two) entries. Hey, you never know, you could get lucky, like HGTV Urban Oasis 2010 winner Adam Venckauskas.
