The one-month contest, hosted by The Selby and CB2, sought to find the most creative space in America—one that reflects a hip, fun aesthetic. The public voted online and the top 50 entries were judged by CB2 and The Selby.
The Grand Prize Winner, Eileen Peters, was selected for her "Venice Surf Shack" and was awarded a $10,000 CB2 Shop Card and a private photo session with The Selby. The "Venice Surf Shack"—an inspired, eclectically-appointed wooden bungalow in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice Beach—resonated with both the CB2 team and The Selby due to its unexpected combination of modern sophistication and casual chic decor.
"All of us on the CB2 team loved this entry," said Marta Calle, Director, CB2, "…from the style, composition, quirkiness and creativity, right down to the adorable dog! This is exactly what we love to see in people's homes, in our own homes, and of course, in our brand."
"I picked Eileen Peters' surf shack because I dig its charming, thrown together style. I am into all the mismatched furniture, 70s graphic surfboards, wood-beam ceilings, Pendleton pillows, grey shag carpet, funny art on the walls and, of course, the cute dog in the photos," said The Selby founder, photographer and lifestyle blogger Todd Selby.
Margaret Robbs of Atlanta, Georgia received second place for her "Lofty Urban Castle," Jeff Kapfer of Saint Louis, Missouri was awarded third place for his "Bird Nest Loft." The contestant who accrued the highest total number of online votes was Megan Curameng of North Hollywood, California for "Movement Lifestyle."
