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:

What Dream Home items are you bringing home? Let us know! And tune in tomorrow for the big reveal!
The day has finally arrived. Today is officially the last day to enter to win the oh-so-stunning HGTV Dream Home 2011. But don’t worry, you still have until 5 p.m. EST to submit your last two entries (once on HGTV.com, once on FrontDoor.com), so make them count!
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.
I’m not a cold weather person, but for several weeks, the HGTV Dream Home 2011 and Stowe, Vt., have been consuming my thoughts. There’s something so dreamy and charming about this snow-covered skier’s paradise. I’ve even gone so far as to picture myself enjoying my morning coffee on the master bedroom’s private balcony while soaking up the surrounding mountain views and brisk air.
Sigh … isn’t she beautiful? Let’s head inside!
Take the Kayla Tour
Ever imagine what it might be like to live out West? Out in the desert, surrounded by nothing but tumbleweed, low-growing pine trees and beautiful mountain views. There’s something about those gorgeous sunsets that just sets the soul right again.
If you have the itch to hit the road, but no time or money, try clicking through the virtual tour of HGTV Dream Home 2010, located in lovely Sandia Park, N.M. Even if you’re not a fan of Contemporary Southwest architecture, you’ll find something to ooh and ahh about in our special online presentation, which includes 360-degree panoramic tours and beautiful photos of 23 indoor and outdoor spaces, exclusive videos, design tips from the experts and more.
And while you’re enjoying the desert views, take a few moments to help us select housewarming gifts for the winner of this fabulous 3900-square-foot home. You can vote up to 10 times per day!
Last week, the online team paid a visit to HGTV Dream Home 2010 in Sandia Park, N.M., to prepare images and copy for the virtual tour, which is slated to launch on December 14.

A Peek Inside HGTV Dream Home 2010
If you’re like me, you love all things Southwest. The sunsets, the breathtaking landscapes and the amazing margaritas (oops, I didn’t say that).
We’ve got what you’ve been looking for: the best of the best from the 2009 HGTV Dream Home! Tons of great photos from every room all in one place.
I love the color scheme of the office. Orange and gray is a trendy color combination, but add in white trims and streamlined furnishings and the space retains a classic feel.
A traditionalist at heart, I’m drawn to the cool blue, classic furniture and elegant draperies in the living room.
What’s your favorite room? Plus, don’t miss any of the other spaces or the chance to enter the sweepstakes.
I had the incredible opportunity to hang out at the HGTV Dream Home in Sonoma, Calif., at the big load-in day when all the furniture arrived and let me tell you, it was exciting!
