*Giveaway* A $249 Room Refresh Design Kit

I’m so excited to share today’s giveaway! I first discovered Anna of Ethos Design on Young House Love a while back – and I’ve been a follower of her blog ever since.

Anna is a talented interior designer from North Queensland, Australia, and Ethos Design is her brainchild for virtually helping homeowners all over the world with their design aesthetics, room layouts and furniture/accessory choices (also known as e-decorating). Today’s giveaway features a Room Refresh Design Kit (full of wonderfully helpful customized ideas for updating any room of your choosing) valued at $249.

In the company’s own words: Ethos Design is an interior design company specializing in interior design for real people and real homes. We offer ‘Design Kits’, an online interior design service which gives you all the inspiration, instructions and shopping lists you need to create your dream home.

This is an interior design firm for those who want a beautiful home, but don’t think they should have to pay designer prices for it. It’s for those people that already have some great pieces and just need a hand putting it all together. And it’s for those people that want to have fun with interior design and create a real home that suits their lifestyle.

When Anna reached out to me about hosting a giveaway as well as offering refresh suggestions for a room of in my home, I was happy to virtually hand over the reigns for a space that has been slow to evolve – the office and guestroom! – and was excited to see what her ideas were. When she shared my finished Design Kit, I couldn’t wait to pass on the same offer as giveaway here.

Here’s a sneak peek at our office/guestroom Design Kit, but you can check the entire magazine-style kit out here:

The process begins with a questionnaire that first establishes the space, inspiration, favorite designers, color palettes and so on. (It’s a very insightful way to approach a room and I knew Anna and I were on the same page when many of her inspirational images for the space were images that I had also pinned to my Pinterest board – I was loving where she was going with the design.)

Anna used the questionnaire, photos from the blog and measurements that I sent her way to develop a thorough plan for how she saw the office and guestroom evolving.

She made helpful suggestions on changing up pieces of the room layout (read through the full kit to see thoughts on switching out the current nightstand for sconces and a homemade behind-the-bedframe version), color palette (note that bright pop of coral!) and on what fabrics, artwork and furniture pieces she thought would look best added to the room. I have my own finished idea in mind, so I loved getting a second opinion and I am definitely incorporating many of these ideas!

Finally, the design kit includes a full shopping list that meets your budgetary needs making the design super easy to execute for the homeowner (or as a great list of guidelines on what to look out for).

What a fun process! This is a great giveaway regardless of your own decorating experience or how finished/work-in-progress your home might be. Read more about Ethos Design here.

    Our bedroom!
    We bought new furniture about 3 years ago, but it really needs a facelift. New curtains, new bedding, pictures on the walls…I’m out of ideas!

  2. says

    Way to go, Anna! This is so very impressive! I love the magazine layout and all of the sources on the last page! I also appreciate the budget friendliness of the items you selected! Really well done!

  3. says

    What a great giveaway! How do I choose just one room that needs help?? I’d say probably either my living room or our master bedroom is what I’d choose.

  4. Carlie says

    I have been struggling with the layout and design of my main living space since we’ve moved in last August. It’s a beautiful room but tricky as it’s our entertaining space, main child playspace and tv room all in 1. Please Help!!!

    All the best,

  5. Wendy WB says

    We are buying a new home where the previous owners painted the Master Bedroom (all of the walls!!!!) Candy Apple Red, I need help to get my earthy feel back into it.

  6. says

    Gah, such a hard decision to pick only one room! I think I would choose the master bedroom since we’ve done absolutely nothing to it other than paint.

  7. steph says

    living room for sure! new entertainment center and I don’t know where to begin.

  8. Kateastrophe says

    I would use the kit on my living and dining room. We’ve lived in this house almost five years and it still looks like we just moved in!!

  9. Manette Gutterman says

    It would be a dream to have a new plan for the room we’re in all the time-our family room. It’s where the kids play, where we enjoy movies together, & where we relax. This would be very special:)

  10. Krista says

    I would love this! My husband’s office needs some major updating and I’m drawing blanks as to what it needs… (:

  11. says

    and I followed both blogs on fb! Thank you for this giveaway! Looks awesome. I would of followed you guys anyways, just so you know ;)

  12. says

    First of all, I love your blog…thank you for sharing with us.
    I am re-freshening a lot of my rooms because my youngest of 5 just started first grade this year & it seems like EVERYTHING needs a freshen-up {now that my kids are old enough to take care of any new stuff} of course, I am always freshening up, who am I kidding? I just can’t help it…hehe. If I had to pick just a room, it would definitely be my kitchen/family room. I would like to lighten it up. Call it spring fever but I have been so attracted to lighter, brighter rooms lately. Warm colors are cozy but cool colors make me smile.
    Thanks Morgan!
    I hope your having a wonderful day!

  13. Anita says

    We’re moving into a new house in a month, so I would love to use this design service for our bedroom. Our new bedroom is smaller and has less closet space than our current bedroom, so it’s going to be a big challenge!

  14. Peggy says

    I definitely need help reconfiguring our family room/kitchen. It’s a small room with two entrances and a french door going out back so it’s really difficult to place furniture. I’d just love a set of fresh eyes to give me some ideas.

  15. Erin says

    Our bedroom needs a makeover because it feels empty. Its new construction and we have a bed, and chest with a couple end tables that dont match.. No curtains and plain shades that cover the windows. We would love input and direction from ethos!

  16. says

    Well, we’re in the process of buying a house, so I don’t want to revamp anything where we currently live. But there is one room that I just have no idea what to do with it in the house we’re moving into. The new house is so much bigger than our current space, I have ideas what to do with some of it but the rest I’m just lost on!

  17. Jacqui says

    Would love to refresh our basement family room–we spent a bunch of time and money finishing it a year and a half ago and it’s still basically a blank slate.

  18. says

    Every room in my house needs a makeover, but I think the most positive change could happen in the bedroom. We’ve got some great pieces but no cohesive look at all, and I’ve been stuck when it comes to setting a color palette and tone.

  19. Jessica H says

    Nice! It would be so nice to have an expert opinion on my living room. It’s a large odd shaped room in much need of a face lift.

  20. Esther says

    My bedroom! I’ve taken care of the other spaces in my house, but my own space is always left for last!

  21. Teresa S. says

    WOW! What a fantastic giveaway! I would love to refresh my living room. It is feeling a bit drab these days!

  22. Sarah says

    I’d love some input on our living area. It has great furniture and a few accessories, but could just use some tweaking…some things to make it pop! Thanks!

  23. Lisa says

    I would love to have my MB looked at. We have a small space in an older home with lots of windows and doors so i am lost when it comes to furniture placement.

  24. Emily says

    We’re moving soon and would love to refresh my family room so it has a lighter look!

  25. Jane says

    I’m ready to refresh our family room. We spend more time here than our formal living room so I’d like it to look nice (sophisticated, but kid-friendly room) instead of looking like all our leftover furniture ended up here (which is what happened). We need storage for kids toys, new curtains, removal/rearrangement of furniture, mantle ideas, and some wall decor. Thanks!
