Above: Camila Gibbs submitted Rustic Modern Meets Daniel Boone in a 1930s Los Angeles Apartment, which was chosen by Remodelista editor Julie Carlson: “We like the mix of vintage and modern pieces in this apartment, plus the houseplants that add a jungle-like note to the room. The apartment dweller’s ingenuity is impressive; she made the coffee table herself and built a drafting-height desk using hardware store components.” Above: Lorraine Pennington entered her Live/Work Space in Corona Del Mar, California, which was picked as a finalist by guest judge Sheila Bridges: “I really appreciate the focus on art in this living space—it seems that the color scheme is plucked from the walls and sculptures. I like that they have incorporated their own furniture designs into the space, which makes it uniquely theirs!” Above: Ana Castillo submitted her Living & Dining Space in Kealakekua, Hawaii, of which Sheila Bridges is a fan: “What a creative and thoughtful approach to a living space! The mix of furniture styles gives this space the look of a couple who is well traveled but has their eye on sustainability.” Above: Dylan Conway’s Brooklyn Loft was chosen by Julie Carlson, who said, “This Williamsburg loft has a clean-lined modern yet rustic vibe, without being too heavy-handed on the industrial touches. The inhabitant is economy-minded; some of his clever moves include a hand-painted wall hanging made from a painter’s drop cloth and leftover paint, and window casements, a counter, and bench fabricated from Dinesen oak remnants.” Above: Jacqueline Navarro entered her Jackson Heights, New York, Southern Inspired Makeover in the City, about which Sheila Bridges had this to say: “This space is nicely curated with an eclectic and casual mix of neutral furniture and furnishings. The white walls create a nice backdrop for a design that seems very practical and livable.” Photograph by Brian Woodcock.
