Three local interior designers are competing in Savannah’s own version of interior design television show "Top Design." Instead of a panel of judges deciding who wins, though, Savannahians will get to vote on the best design. The designs will be unveiled Monday, Dec. 8 at 1 p.m.
Aiming to creating a beautiful or dramatic design vignette, each competitor tackled the challenge by demonstrating his or her style. Using beautiful imported furniture and unique home accent pieces, the three designers each created a storefront window design by using furniture and accessories found in 10,000 square feet of showroom space from Grand Harbour Homestore in the Abercorn Common shopping center at White Bluff and Abercorn in Savannah.
Local designers and interior design students submitted their names to become eligible for the contest, and three names were drawn randomly.
Voterswill have a chance to win a $50 Grand Harbour store gift certificate. Simply go by Grand Harbour Homestore located at the Abercorn Common fountain to view the displays and cast a vote. Voting will close on December 30th, and the winner will be announced at the close of business that day.
The winning designer will be honored with a VIP Warehouse Party sponsored by Loco’s Grill & Pub, publicity of the achievement, exclusive designer referrals for one month, and in-store and website visibility. The Storefront Makeover Contest will continue through 2009 with two designers competing for votes each month
