Dream Room Winners

Decorating Den Interiors offers online design inspiration for room makeovers on Dream Room Showcase website

Easton, MD — Decorating Den Interiors has created a new website showcasing award-winning room makeovers from this year’s International Dream Room Contest. The site:https://decoratingden.com/showcase/2012 features interior designs judged as the best by an esteemed panel of international home furnishings journalists.

“These makeovers were done within real budgets for real homeowners, not staged,” said Carol Donarye Bugg, ASID, DDCD, vice president for design and author of five books on interior design and decorating. “As the best of nearly 200 entries, these room designs can provide inspiring ideas for making one’s home more beautiful and inviting as we move into the time of year in which we spend more time indoors.”

The website features the top three designs in each of 12 categories: Living rooms, family rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, kitchens, children’s rooms, bathrooms, home offices, window treatments, outdoor spaces, commercial spaces, and miscellaneous.

It also introduces visitors to the contest’s top three award winners:

  • Decoratng Den’s top design honor, Decorator of the Year, went to interior decorator and business owner Lynne Lawson and her decorator Laura Gonzalez of Columbia, Md., who won in two categories-bedroom and window treatment.
  • The Donayre Award, named after the DDI Vice President for Design Carol Donayre Bugg and voted on by other franchise owners, went to interior decorator and business owner Sharon Binkerd of Fort. Lauderdale, Fla.
