    Would never turn down a little design advice from a woman with such style!

  • I’m moving in February and will be in need of help.. I’d love to win your contest…

  • My apartment is greatly in need of some TLC. When I first moved in after graduating from school, I accumulated random bits of furniture from friends/family and did little else to decorate. A year later, I’m finding that it very difficult to commit to any particular style which is preventing me from getting much redecorating done.

    I adore Cassandra’s style and would love to get her take on how to make bold moves in my space!

  • Oh how AMAZING! I would love the opportunity to have such a creative mind help me out. I am graduating from college on Saturday and have been dreaming of finally coming into the world of being a “grown up.” I have the charming apartment, but to have it reflect that of the chic career woman I dream of soon becoming would be a dream come true!
    Whoever wins this is so lucky.

  • eek! so exciting. i’ve always been that eclectic girl with two many found photographs and objects hanging about. having recently moved into an arts & crafts bungalow with our new wee baby, i’m finding it difficult to compromise my kooky style with the simple yet stunning architecture of our house and, of course,with the wee one’s minimalist requirements. any help would certainly be appreciated.
