If you watch The View then you probably already know about the Room-A-Day Giveaway sweepstakes they are co-sponsoring with the Kimberly-Clark Corporation. Kimberly Clark knows that everyone time deserves a special room in their homes and wants to help you create it with their great brands. Not only have they teamed up with The View this year but they’ve also got celebrity designer Thom Filicia on board. In fact, just last week Thom appeared on the show and launched the sweepstakes in a special segment with Joy Behar, where he transformed the show’s outdated backstage area into a stylish and comfortable space for celebrity guests. Of course, the real question is… will the celebrity guests actually use that space?
Anyway, to help get the word out about this great sweepstakes opportunity, I’ve got a Room-A-Day Giveay Prize Pack to give away myself! One lucky winner will get a selection of several Kimberly Clark products (some of their trusted brands include Kleenex, Cottonelle and Huggies) PLUS a copy of Thom Filicia’s new book, Thom Filicia Style: Inspired Ideas for Creating Rooms You’ll Love!
To enter leave comment below before Wednesday, February 4th with the room in your house that you’d most like to give a makeover and why. On the 4th, I’ll use the entries to draw one winner at random. Eligiblity Note: This giveaway is limited to U.S. residents ONLY.
And don’t forget to enter the Room-A-Day Giveaway sweepstakes daily for your chance to be one of the 16 lucky winners! You can entre online at www.RoomADayGiveaway.com, www.abc.com or via the tear pads to be found in participating retail stores near you. The first 15 winners will be announced on The View at 11AM on ABC daily from February 2nd through February 15th. The 16th and final winner will be revealed on the Room-A-Day Giveaway website on or around March 13th.
In the meantime, here are some of Thom Filicia’s favorite design tip:
- Make Your Home Inviting: Put comfort first by selecting furnishings for their usability. Choose beautiful, comfortable dining chairs rather than delicate antiques, and opt for a nap-worthy sofa with plenty of pillows.
- Find Inspiration in Your Personal Belongings: When selecting a room’s color scheme, take cues from your own wardrobe and favorite personal objects.
- Design on a Dime: Forget high-end art galleries. A great way to stay on budget is to enlarge your favorite photo on a canvas or frame your children’s artwork to add some playful elements to a room.
- Brighten Up the Atmosphere: Well-placed pools of light create islands of warmth. Place votives in darkened corners or put a reading lamp with a soft light next to a super cushy sofa to help set the mood.
