BDG'S FIRST GIVEAWAY!!

With much reluctance I started blogging a few months ago.  I never looked at blogs before and feel like a whole new world of design inspiration has opened up to me!  I love reading other design blogs and am trying to get the hang of managing my own blog!!  Not easy to do with kids, a busy design business, blah, blah, blah!

Here I am offering my very first GIVEAWAY!!!  It's a good one too!!!


A beautiful large Turquoise Leather Wrapped tray from Global Views.  It retails for around $300.00 so this is a serious score!!!

I purchased this for staging some photos I recently shot with the incredible photographer Ashlee Raubach (click here and here for photos)

All you need to do is FOLLOW my blog & leave a COMMENT and I will select a WINNER on APRIL 29th.

Thanks for following!!!

Amazing pictures! Love the house. Every detail. Can't wait for you to get your hands on my master bedroom :). Looking forward to seeing the rest of the pictures from Ashlee's shoot! You are so talented and fun to work with.

Your feature on Ashlee's blog was perfection! The details and pops of color were well...perfect. You're one talented girl Alison! Loved that fun shot of my sassy pants niece and Kelly. Their master looks amazing! Looking forward to more posts! PS--so exciting...your first giveaway....CONGRATS!

Martha said...

I love every image Ashlee posted on her blog! Don't even get me started on that turquoise leather wrapped tray!

Adam said...

I think I thanked you before, but I figured it would be good to mention it again on your blog. The front office design and decor look great here in my new practice: South Orange County Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Aliso Viejo, CA.
I have received so many compliments from other physicians and patients. So thank you again Alison! It looks great--I'm very happy with the way it turned out. By the way, you are welcome to come over or to have a photographer come over to take some photos for your website.
All the best.

Oh my GOSH! I just found you from Ashlee's blog and I am in heaven! I am following you with or without the giveaway! You have perfect taste. Thank you for starting a blog! I LOVE the post about how to hang drapes. I have always hung them right above the window and you're so right! It looks a million times better right under the crown molding. Beautiful. Thank you so much! I, too, love the crisp clean feeling that white brings and now I have lots of ideas that I love on your blog. Following!

What an absolutely fabulous tray! I have quite a few places in my home I could use it. For starters, I'm refreshing my bedroom decor & am using the color turquoise in varying hues and intensities. This tray would add a wonderful pop of color to the other muted & serene tones of the room. I'm keeping my fingers crossed on this one!

Just starting in the blog world - great posts!

Diane said...

was looking around to see how it's going,
and excited to see new comments are flowing.

your blog is quite handsome, you have quite a flair
for decorating and style, i'm so glad that you share.

oh, i see them eyeing that fabulous tray
the ooh~ing and ahh~ing and sweet things they say!

and so i will try to tip the scale to my favor
but i promise to stay on my best-est behavior.

i have a little cottage, beachy~60's fun style
and there's something i know has been missing awhile.

it's a leather turquoise tray which was love at first sight
and if it made it's way here it'd be sucha delight.

the nickname for my home is "the aquahouse" it's true
and the outside is painted bermuda~ocean~blue.

enjoy all the posts & new followers galore
may you always have fans who come to adore.

Lauren Marie said...

New to your blog, but I'm in love! Have just the spot for this tray-- so I hope it's me!

Thanks to H.O.T blog, I came across your gorgeous designs. I wish I could fly you to Minnesota and have you share inspirational designs? I have been stuck with my living room ideas since I had my son nine and half years ago but having that turquoise tray would be a catalyst to start off the new look for my living room! Thanks so much, Allison, for sharing your wonderful ideas-
