John gives us some information about him:

design is my world, it’s part of my soul. Ever since I was young I loved studying how things were placed in a room, how the colors and textures played against each other ,how lighting affected the feel of a room etc. I’ve also always had a penchant for repurposing things, taking something and finding a whole new use for it than what it was originally intended for it, or taking something that had seen it’s better days and bringing it back to it’s original condition.I had always done deign/decorating projects for myself family,friends, but it was always a kind of hobby thing, although I always wished I could do it as a career.
Then, 6 years ago I was diagnosed with cancer and had to go through both chemotherapy, and radiation. It was at that time that I decided that life was way too short not to enjoy every minute of it, and I decided I would start working towards achieving the one thing I’ve always wanted in my life – a career in design/decorating. I went to school for design/decorating and I am working on making this the year I do something with it.
I’m currently trying to get my design service off the ground and I’m realizing that it’s much more involved than I thought it would be. However,that’s not deterring me from doing all I can to get there. That’s why I LOVE Olioboard so much, not only can I use my talent to express my knowledge and creativity, but it’s also been a great networking tool to reach others who have my same interests. I’ve met some of the greatest people on Olioboard and I look forward to going on there everyday.”

Thank you John~

Sheaffer Pen & "Home Office Design Contest” on olioboard~


On olioboard is running the: «Home Office Design Contest for your chance to WIN!» There are more than 290 entries and the winners will be 3. The contest is coming to the end and here are the choices from «tikib» -her board is on the top from the first day-  and from “paulamariefarmer” who & her board is to the first places.

~Tikib :

tikib

Tikib’s 3 top choices for the winners are:


*The first choice is NYCLQs Workspace Grace OBC.  I can visualize this office space for a fashion magazine editor or top executive at a Fortune 500 company.  I chose this board because of its versatility and attention to details.  Not only does she have a desk and chair for the office space but there are multiple seating areas.  This will allo seating options for various clients.  In addition, I loved the way she made the neutral colors stand out to give the space an elegant, clean look. WORKSPACE GRACE OBC


*My 2nd place choice is Office Space by Jane Gianarelli.  I love how Jane was able to mix the vibrant colors in the office space.  In my opinion, this office space speaks to the young and the young at heart.  I believe it would be a perfect design for a young college student or a young person just getting started in the world.  With this board, the young college student or young entrepreneur will not mind studying or working from home in this colorful, fun office.Office Space by Jane Gianarelli


*My choice for 3rd place is I’ve Been Scahffered by LivingSpaces.  I am not sure if this board is in the top 25.  If not, I am hoping it moves up (I vote for it daily).  My reasons for choosing this board is because I loved how she mixed the brick and wood textures together.  In my opinion, the board has a mod, retro, and industrial feel to it. Ive been schaffered

***This was very difficult and I pity the judge who has to choose from all of the awesome designs from the Olioboard community.  I wish you and the rest of the members GOOD LUCK!

Tameka.

Paula’s 3 top choices for the winners are:


*1st place: Tikib’s Ideal Dissertation Study Room. This board has been in 1st place for practically the duration of the contest! I think it captures both the functional and fabulous elements – which in my opinion is key to winning the challenge! The room is both light and bright which is a must when using a space to work in, and it has plenty of useful storage too. For these reasons I simply have to choose this as the winning board!Tikib's Ideal Dissertation Study Room


*2nd place: Pillows and Paint- Sunup to Sundown. I think a close contender is this board. Again, I feel it has both functional and fabulous elements to it. It is also light and bright and has plenty of useful storage. Of course, do you know what the best thing about this one is?…………………..that lovely view!! sunup to sundown

*3rd place: Sheaffers to the Wind –Paulamariefarmer. This board is based on a lot of design ideas from my own home – the colour green of the wall, the white office furniture and the many books all on design. It is such a fresh design and is fully functional as an office space and has lots of fabulous things in too – including of course, the wonderful Sheaffer pen collection on the desk!! 3 sheaffers to the wind

Good luck.!

Paula.
