vintage-bathroom-blue… and above: Nanette & Jim for their built-from-scratch-in-the-empty-basement blue bathroom. To be sure, both of these projects delivered beautiful results. And they exemplify the heart and soul of the blog: Their respective owners spent a lot of time getting to know their homes…. then doing careful research and planning to create spaces that suited the original architecture of their house. And like the name of this award, their projects did not come easy. Specifying and creating a period style bathroom or kitchen is a lot tougher than buying what’s fashionable today. Way to go, Rebecca, Keith, Nanette and Jim for showing us how doing things The Hard Way can pay off. Our other finalists also were wonderful caretakers of their mid century homes, and with their projects showed other fabulous ways to renovate and decorate our homes –>>

    Congratulations to the winners and runners up of the contest.
    I enjoyed reading all of the stories and seeing new ideas for how to do things. Each story teaches me a little something I didn’t know before so they are always stimulating and exciting. I make a million notes about the great things I have seen done on here. 🙂

    Congrats again.

    Congratulations to the winners! and the other finalists, too! Jobs well done.

    I think the ‘advertisement’ of the Prichard’s kitchen is awesome! I actually had to look close because at first glance I thought it was a real vintage ad!! LOL

    Ooooh congrats to Rebecca and Keith! Their kitchen made me search, literally, for months for that sapwood walnut. It’s gorgeous. And Nanette and Jim, what a dreamy bathroom. Love!!
