Apartment Therapy’s Small/Cool contest is officially over. And I didn’t win.
Congrats to the winner: Jordan’s Light, Location & Vibe
I was honored to even be a part of the competition, and happy I was selected. Thanks for voting for me–I didn’t really come close to winning, but I did not come in last, and that’s what counts!
Here’s what I learned from the competition:
- I was one of 196 entries posted on the AT website. They received 453 total entries, so that means I beat the odds and was one of their accepted entries with a 43% acceptance rate (not exactly Ivy League rates, but still pretty good, and probably way self-selecting)
- According to the people of the AT community, but not my 6’2″ husband, I should hang my art lower, especially with the low ceilings
- People will give you advice, but you gotta go with what you love and works for your home
- Mid-century lines, wood, and vintage objects are way in, for a good example, see the international winner
