Remember our talk about fall wardrobes earlier this week? If you were wondering where all those new duds would go, look no further than the brand-new HGTV Urban Oasis 2014.

If you were to ask what my favorite room in any home is, the word “kitchen” would quickly slip from my lips — you know, because of the food. But I couldn’t help but dream of the abuse I could inflict on my credit card with the beautifully realized, and enormous, closet of the Urban Oasis residence.

Closet

Master Closet

Lindsay Pumpa, the genius behind such a drool-worthy space, calls the closet something to write home about. The custom accessory storage and handcrafted six light chandelier allow this space to make as much of a statement as the clothing it will store.

Master Bathroom

Master Bathroom

I had to choose a second favorite: the master bathroom. It gives new meaning to the word “retreat.” The sleek, modern tub serves up beautiful city skyline views of Atlanta to whomever is soaking. The marble-tiled shower and floor meld seamlessly with the ultra-chic fixtures and vanity to mimic the tranquil luxury of a five-star spa.

Located in Buckhead, Atlanta’s mecca for all things shopping and dining, the home’s cozy-gone-chic vibe is definitely fitting.

I would be happy to live in the master closet and bathroom, but if your design-loving heart can take it — tour every inch of this urban palace. From the guest bathroom with its striking tile shower to the balcony with its sprawling views of Stone Mountain and Atlanta’s city center, every inch of this home drips with luxury.

Peruse our extensive photo galleries and let us know what your favorite space is in the home. Also, be sure to dish your feelings on the master bedroom’s purple walls — I love them!

And don’t forget — this home can be yours. Enter twice daily for a chance to win this Atlanta dream on HGTV.com and on FrontDoor.com.

The day progresses with invaluable topics about managing and marketing your projects and your brand. Each day of Design Camp provides you with the opportunity to learn and network with the most respected professionals in the interior design business.

–Alert! Alert! This Friday at 5pm/4c is the deadline to enter for a chance to win HGTV’s Smart Home 2013. Enter now, people!

OK, back to your regularly scheduled programming.

In the kids’ bedroom interior designer Linda Woodrum broke free from the rules of understatement and high regency style. Kitschy, she says, is OK in a space that celebrates family, fun and a child’s first wide-eyed experience at the seashore. “The twin bedroom has great appeal for everyone. The skateboards over the twin beds speak to a young teen, but change those out and it becomes a guest room or a young child’s bedroom,” says Linda.

Have you heard about the latest sensation to hit Broadway? I’ll Eat You Last starring Bette Midler chronicles the life of Hollywood superagent Sue Mengers (1932-2011). Sue, played by the Divine Miss M, was a legend in her time and represented the biggest names in show business (Barbra Streisand, Faye Dunaway, Burt Reynolds, Ali McGraw, Gene Hackman, Cher, Candice Bergen, Ryan O’Neal, Nick Nolte, Mike Nichols, Gore Vidal, Bob Fosse).

Keep reading for giveaway details.

I'll Eat You Last

I’ll Eat You Last starring Bette Midler is currently playing on Broadway at the Booth Theatre through June 30th! For more information, visit IllEatYouLast.com.

For more than 20 years, Sue Mengers’s clients were the talk of the town, and her dinner parties were the envy of Hollywood. Now for a limited time (best show availability is on Sunday, May 12th and Sunday, June 2nd), audiences are invited into her glamorous Beverly Hills home for an evening of dish, dirty secrets and all the inside showbiz details only Sue can tell.

I’m honored that Scott Pask, the set designer for I’ll Eat You Last, is giving a web-exclusive tour to Design Happens of the Broadway set (where we can see Sue’s home decor and tastes really come to life — she loved white flowers, silver and the National Enquirer). Watch the clip now:

As Scott mentioned, Sue Mengers’s real-life house (pictured below) was designed by a name that may be familiar to some D-Happers — John Elgin Woolf. Woolf (1908-1980) built or renovated homes for many wealthy and famous Los Angeles area residents in the 1950s and 1960s. It was said of him in his obituary that he, “…established a new vocabulary for glamorous movie-star living.”

For the final of four Halloween-themed giveaways from Grandin Road, we wanted to know your best DIY Halloween decorating tip or find out what monster is the scariest and why. Based on your comments, I think the next horror movie should be a showdown between a horde of zombies and Freddy Krueger.

Design Happens fans also shared many helpful and fun decorating tips. I especially liked this one from HeatherM, as she offers a practical use for oscillating and box fans outside of summer: “Fans blowing cobwebs and black drapery fabric is pretty scary…when you can’t see around the corner and something… happens… out of the corner of your eye!”

Perhaps this week’s winner, Jill B., will go with a monsters of a Greek mythology Halloween decorating theme…cyclops, hydra and gorgons like Medusa.

For our third of four Halloween-themed giveaways of spooky and creepy decorations from Grandin Road, we asked you to share your funniest or happiest memories connected to October 31st. I challenge you to read the responses and not smile.

Grandin Road - Life-Size Zombie Bride - HGTV design blog - halloween decoration

Our winner, picked at random, shared this story:

“My happiest memories of Halloween are all decorating with my mom. Halloween became my domain when I got older, around 11, I think. Mom and I would paint the front window with some spooky scene, and I would rake leaves all day long to stuff my dad’s clothes for my props. (I can’t help but think that part of that was maybe an excuse to get me to rake the lawn.) After hanging cobwebs EVERYWHERE and getting all of our decorations in just the right place, I would place the fog machine in such a place as to insight optimum fear in our trick-or-treaters. With my dad’s help of course. Unfortunately, my dad was a little too good at his job in all of the festivities, and he sent many a kid screaming bloody murder from our door step.”

Last week Shelley shared a Halloween decorating story that made me laugh out loud. One year her family’s style was “scary realism”.
