The votes are in! And I’m so excited to share them with you!
The competition was heated and someone managed to pull ahead at the very end. It was fun watching all the numbers come in and it was hard not to share them with you as it was happening.
Each winner will receive a gift card, be featured in and receive a one-year subscription to Miniaturas magazine.
So here we go, the 3 winners of the 2013 Undersized Urbanite contest are:
3rd Place: Audra’s Chantilly
Audra did an amazing job with her pretty little 1/2 scale house.
She remodeled her little home, changing out the windows and doors, adding that large wrap around porch and balcony, and adding the gorgeous roof and more.
You can see more of Audra’s house here (including the before photos!). Congratulations, Audra!
2nd Place: Lyssa of Can’t Have it Big? Make it Mini!
Lyssa’s personalization of her house was so impressive. Everything looks so cozy and lived-in. This house was a complete remodel as well.
Lyssa loves miniatures for the same reason I do: it’s a chance to design and decorate your dream house. And I love that one of her priorities in her dream house is a library with a gorgeous and cozy book nook.
And the attic just kills me.
Go here to see more photos of Lyssa’s lovely house.
1st Place: Brae of Otterine
Brae is amazingly talented. She modified a basic house kit for her structure and built that deck (among many, many other things) from scratch.
Even the beautiful rug is cross stitched.
Yes, the wood stove was also made from scratch:
Go take a more detailed tour of Brae’s artist studio if you haven’t yet. And grab some coffee first because you’ll want to stay a while.
Congratulations again to Brae, Lyssa and Audra!!! And thank you to all the participants and finalists, it really was an honor to have you all.
All of the participants and winners will remain listed here on the blog and on the Undersized Urbanite website.
