Home Hotshot, round 1 recap!

As previously announced, the first round of the Home Hotshot contest was this past Saturday! It was a great party, and the contestants all did amazing work!! It was very exciting to see the process each contestant used to bring their room together, and to watch their progress over the 2 hours. Great job, everyone!!

The challenge for Round 1 was simple: Living Rooms. Each contestant randomly picked a number from 1-10, and that decided which Inspiration Box they received. With that Inspiration Box, they had the items around which to build their room. At the end of the event, each entry was judged on the following:

  • Use of Inspiration Items
  • Creativity
  • Color Scheme
  • Overall Aesthetic

Each of the judges was given a scoring sheet and independently scored each entry on those criteria. All the scores were then totaled and the top 5 scores gave us our finalists!

Many, many thanks to my esteemed judges for Round 1:

  • Colleen Desmoulins, The Loft
  • Saffia Widdershins, Prim Perfect/Designing Worlds
  • Stacie Pryor, [SPRY]
  • Pitsch Parx, UrbanizeD
  • Rayvn Hynes, MudHoney
  • Amaliscious Destiny, La’Licious Designs

Keep reading, after the cut, to see all the designs submitted in Round 1! Round 2 will take place this Saturday, November 20, at 2pm SLT. Our five finalists will be back to take on the next design challenge!
