Slob Proof Your House Giveaway! (CLOSED!!!)

This giveaway is now closed. Thanks for entering. Click here to see if you won. 






Right now in about 2-3 weeks time I won't really know exactly where I'll be living, ok I know, but I don't know for how long. I don't know if I'll be on the East coast or West. Hotel or house. (to get the full story click here) So for me to be doing a post on decorating might be kind of silly, but maybe not because you all still have places to live so you need to get decorating right? 

And besides when I finally do figure out where I'm going and for how long I'll need to decorate.


Now I figure most of you who read my blog are probably like me. You've got one (or maybe more than one) messy toddler or kid at home and a equally (if not worse) messy husband and probably a pet or two. But that doesn't mean you want to sacrifice a chic and fabulous looking home for a sloppy run down mess right?


You need real decorating tips, real organization tips, and fast and easy clean-up ideas to make your house a home. To make it look lived in, but loved right?






Enter Debbie Wiener. I was contacted by Debbie a few weeks ago to do a review of her book and giveaway and of course I jumped on the chance! I would love to learn how to pick a sofa that shows less stains and pick perfect accessories that compliments the Tickle Me Elmo in the corner.










Debbie is a "strong advocate for the cleaning-impaired and decorating challenged". She is a full service interior designer with her own firm (Designing Solution in Silver Spring, MD - all you locals call her up!) 


She specializes in not creating beautiful showroom style houses (although I'm sure she can she was the winner of 2009 Best of the Best Bethesda Magazine) but designs for how we really  live. Sloppy. 






In her book she'll teach you things like how to keep bathroom floors "spot" free even with boys (SIGN ME UP!) and how good lighting can make "even the modest rooms look impressive".


She'll help you choose sofas, chairs, rugs, curtains and paint that will hold up to the everyday life of toddlers, husbands, teens and pets!


Debbie is so generously giving away her book Slob Proof Real-life Design Solutions to one of my lucky readers! 


The giveaway starts today and will run until March 4th and the winner will be determined by Random.org
