Here’s a thought-provoking detail to cap off your week quite nicely.
During a recent conversation with HGTV Dream Home 2011 architect Paul Robert Rousselle, he waxed philosophical about his design for the master suite. And with good reason. Imagine strolling toward this portion of the home, and, through a series of subtle turns, discovering an open, breathtaking space. “In plan, I have taken and rotated this quadrant, this master bedroom block, roughly 16 degrees – in part to increase the unique experience of going to a special place and also to create an air of mystery and excitement that we are no longer part of the house that we left,” he says.
The bedroom area, a cathedral space, will boast spectacular views of the ski trails via an 11 x 9-foot expanse of window. Twenty feet away from and placed on axis with the bed will be the master bathroom. Behind the tub will stand a 5 x 12-foot column of glass, through which one can view the mountain’s “chin,” a peak illuminated as the sun rises over the mountain. “So if you can imagine December, a snow-capped mountain and at 7:30 the sun hits that chin,” says Paul. “There is going to be this pink glowing land form that you will experience as you lay in bed. It will be just breathtaking.”
I thought we’d take a break from the clues (yes, the snowflake photo is annoying me now, too), to take a look at photos of winner weekend, a celebration held in honor of Myra Lewis. She received the keys to her brand new home and vehicle. Click through. I think you will enjoy the sunset pic!
Good day, bloggers.
Well, I must say that this was a great HGTV Dream Home season. I want to sincerely thank you for your energy and talents. It is such a pleasure to read our blog. You are some of the most positive, interesting (not to mention talented) bloggers around.
Here are my top 5 favorite blog discussions from this season:
- Intense discussion on bears and other wildlife
- Haiku contest
- Monica’s wrap contest
- Privacy “solutions” for the Casita
- How you would spend your perfect day at the DH
I am doing my best to get some intel out of Jack on the HGTV Dream Home 2011 location.(Knowing Jack, he will say that the next home will be north, east or west of this year’s home. But you can’t blame a girl for trying.) Where do you think the 2011 location will be? Care to share your guesses?
If you are wondering how to fill your time until the next HGTV Dream Home is revealed, please join me on the HGTV Green Home blog. My first “sneak peek” videos have already launched. I hope to see you there. Let the greaming begin!
Your Super Fan,
If you won, what would your day look like? Super Fan muses today, just to get the conversation started. I’d probably take a morning hike through the desert that surrounds the home, come back and whip up a late breakfast, sun myself on the Casita patio, head out for a shopping spree in Santa Fe and then come home to host a huge house party – hip-hop music blaring, folks dancing and Dream Home margaritas overflowing.
What about you? Come on, folks. I want you to blow up this blog post – let’s shoot for over 1,000 posts before the giveaway show airs on Monday evening at 8 p.m. EST. Be creative – I will be reading.
Nervous? Excited? Can’t wait for Monday night? Me too. Today, Super Fan presents a “How We Select the Winner” Tutorial. Watch and learn.
Good morning, bloggers.
I have some fantastic news to share with you: One of our blogging friends won Monica Pedersen’s beautiful turquoise wrap. A very happy congratulations to Janice Vegas. I know that you will wear the wrap with excitement and style. I know all of the bloggers will join me in happiness knowing that one of our friends has a sweet memory of HGTV Dream Home 2010 to cherish forever!
And hopefully we will have something else to celebrate next week. Watch the giveaway show on Monday night at 8 p.m. EST to find out who gets the home, the SUV and the cash. Will the winner be someone from our blogging community? Only time will tell.
Your Super Fan,
Today the folks at HGTV congregated at a local fulfillment house to select the winner of HGTV Dream Home 2010. Our president, Jim Samples, was on hand to chose the winning entry and read a thoughtful Christmas card from our 2009 winners (let’s just say they are doing well and are incredibly happy).
Could you be the lucky one? I honestly don’t even know the name or location of the winner. I cannot wait to watch the giveaway show on March 15 at 8 p.m. Anyone planning a dinner party? If so, don’t forget to serve our signature Dream Home margaritas.
Good day, bloggers.
I hope you’re not suffering from boredom. A watched pot never boils, so we must keep busy.
I’ve included pictures that showcase the HGTV Dream Play Home. My handsome hubby, who stands 6’1” tall, gives you perspective on the play home’s size. I think the interior is adorable! I also couldn’t resist “cooking” in that amazing gourmet kitchen.
For those curious about the sound system in this year’s HGTV Dream Home, it’s controlled by a small touch-screen monitor in the home theater. (The stand stays in the theater, but the actual device can travel throughout the home.) It’s one of those extra-special touches that make HGTV Dream Home 2010 incredible.
Many folks have asked how long it takes for the winner to receive his or her keys once the HGTV Dream Home 2010 Giveaway show airs. Plan on approximately six to seven weeks.
Your Super Fan,
