CONGRATS to the Winners & Participants @Olioboard's Zinc Door Spring Challenge!

WOW! What a contest! Some amazing boards were created for this latest Olioboard challenge, sponsored by Zinc Door and judged by DesignMilk and Freshome. I think this may have been their largest amount of entries to date... probably because so many more people are starting to discover the fun + ease of using Olioboard and its new ProPlan tools. Another reason so many boards looked so fun and colorful? The terrific selection of colorful, fresh, and fun Zinc Door merchandise participants had to work with, to include in their boards! Here are the WINNING roomboards PLUS some of my fave boards from the challenge... all representing March Moodboard Madness!

 Patricia Anthony
Real Estate Broker + Interior Designer
 Wellington, Florida

A special win. Why? Because of two reasons:
One - Even though she placed third in the challenge, this was her first challenge entry 
and a WIN!

Secondly - She just happens to be a super-duper great friend of mine (one of THE best!), I love and who lives in South Florida. We met back in '98 while we attended the Art Institute of Ft. Lauderdale studying Interior Design. We had drafting, architecture, decorative arts, renderings, and 3D drawing classes together (to name a few).

 Lynda and Patricia 1999

In 1999, she married the love of her life, Dean Anthony and became mother to two AMAZING, beautiful and blessed little girls: Vanessa and Emily. During that time, she put most of her design career on hold to lovingly care for her family. She's even home schooled her girls and heads up several church functions in her community, along with assisting her husband's brand by designing his website + organizing several boat shows in Miami Beach and Ft. Lauderdale. Since the girls are growing up, she tapped back into her passion of design. Recently, she assisted clients as a Designer at Thomasville, but has since ventured off on her own (mainly because it went against her design principle - "designers" at retail furniture stores do not get to truly design because they are basically responsible for selling the company product). If you are in South Florida, and would like to contact Patrica for a design consultation or your next project, email her at While she's building her own website, check out a few of her boards on Olioboard at LivingSpaces and her husbands website she created at
