Cast Your VOTE in the Tobi Fairley Get Published Challenge at Olioboard!

Stripes continue to be a strong trend for 2013 and that is the theme for the current Get Published Challenge sponsored by Interior Designer Tobi Fairley on Olioboard! The challenge is to create a dynamic space filled with energy plus style using the 2013 trend of stripes! By doing so, people who enter are to create a space with that has a wow factor deserving to get published. The Top 25 boards are also being judged for a chance to win one of two passes to attend Tobi's Design Camp: The Journey to Getting Published. The judges are Crystal Gentilello, founder of RUE magazine, Ronda Carmen, founder of All The Best | A Passport To Stylish Living blog, Krissa Rossbund,Senior Style Editor at Traditional Home!  I entered two boards - both drastically different...

Thanks to all of your votes, you have already helped one of my boards I entered (see above) move up to PAGE 3 out of 46 with 260 votes -- BUT, I will need your help to keep it there or better yet -- Move n Up!  For the board I had originally created for the Get Vignette Set post had used two versions of stripes: In the back-ground with the bold horizontal window panels, and in the foreground with a pair of thinner stripe high back chairs. You can click the link here to VOTE:  VOTE once daily - NOW thru March 6th! 

For the other board, I used a stripe room background, paired with a thinner stripe slipper chair pair and mixed with another popular Spring trend: the Greek Key motif. For a little color, I used by two faves (also on trend for Spring) pops of cool blues and greens... For this board (thanks to you!) I'm currently on page 9 of 47 with 132 votes! You can click the link here to VOTE:

  2. Good morning Lynda!

    There are so many great entries in this #GetPublished Challenge -- on behalf of #TeamOlioboard, thank you for creating this wonderful post!

    I''d like to add a bit of detail for your readers: they can vote 1x per 24 hours per ISP address every day, from now until 2 pm Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, March 6th!

    Also, sometimes people voting get perplexed because they go to vote and their vote is not showing up. This is because
    they're not quite aware of this voting terminology:

    1. 1 day = 24 hours.
    2. ISP = a computer's electronic address. One vote per ISP address {i.e, per computer } is allowed each 24 period.

    So, it's important for people to know they can vote every day, 1 time per 24 hours per ISP address in the 6.5 days left in this contest as today is Thursday, February 28th, 2013 and it ends, again, at 2 pm Eastern Standard Time next Wednesday, March 6th, 2013.

    Thank you, Lynda, for sharing the Olioboard Contest you've entered with your readers and we wish you, and all entered, the best of luck!
