I LOVE STONEGABLE READERS! You are THE BEST! And to say thank you to everyone who makes StoneGable a part of their day I’m giving away something a little different this month! I get so many e-mails and questions about decor issues. Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all have a live-in interior design consultant? I think so too! October’s Reader Appreciation Giveaway will help one lucky reader solve their biggest home decor dilemma! No, I’m not coming to live in your home but probably the next best thing…

This month’s giveaway winner will get a complete design consultation by me that includes:

  • a detailed survey to pinpoint your interior design problem, your style and more
  • a 20 minute skype or google hangout walk thru of the area in your home with an interior design dilemma or if you are not computer savvy you can send pictures
  • a plan of action done by me to help you solve your home decor problem
  • a 30 minute phone consultation 
  • a mood board showing you products that I think would work best in your room

If you don’t have an issue with a room but want to win this Giveaway for someone else you may transfer your gift to them.

Here’s how you win… every time you comment on ANY post at StoneGable you will be entered to win. That means you can leave as many comments on as many posts as you want… and you can do this daily! I keep a daily tally of comments and the winner will be chosen from them. The winner will be posted on Facebook and notified by email on November 1st.

Stop by my Facebook page and follow me so you can check if you are the winner!

I’m very excited about this GIVEAWAY! I hope you are too!

    What a wonderful idea. I look so forward to your post each and everyday. You are so inspirational. I am slowly transforming my home to farmhouse style. We recently added a bathroom, remodled our laundry room and bedroom. I am now in the planning process of transforming my den. I love white couches,but, I have 4 grandchildren, ages 3, 5, 6 and 13 and have the question of how hard would it be able to keep a white couch with children. I would love to win this time with you and your advice. May God continue to Bless everyday.

  24. I do have one particular problem that I have been brain storming for years – it would be nice to consult with someone who clearly knows what they’re doing!

  25. Vicki Lay says:

    Love your Blog. Read it daily. Love especially your Sunday posts. I’ve had the joy of traveling to Israel twice with fellow Christians. My oldest granddaughter goes in May with a group from Liberty University to the best sites. Now to decor–Haven’t commented in a while….but my biggest decorating delimna is “de-stuffing”. I love all my Khotchkis, but I’m beginning to get claustrophobic especially when seasonally decorating. HELP!

  26. Linda Jentzsch says:

    What a great and fun idea! Anyone would be thrilled to have this opportunity.

  34. What a great gift, your time and talent! My living room needs your touch.

  35. Yvonne thank you for this wonderful opportunity. I’m trying to refresh the look of my home but often times feel dry. I read magazines blogs and Pinterest but have a difficult time starting. I want to remodel my kitchen and dining room but seem stuck even though I have visited with contractors and have a budget for the project. I just need reassurance to start.

  56. Sounds fun, Yvonne. Let’s see if we can have Marilyns win two months in a row! 😉

  62. Hi Yvonne! I have enjoyed your blog for many years. I was drawn to your style of decorating and enjoy seeing how you place things in your home. We have moved and are remodeling a smaller ranch home. We do have some challenging areas and would love to be able to have your input.

  63. Leslee rau says:

    Wow! What an incredibly generous giveaway! Love all your tips and advise. But presently ( and for the last few years ) I seem paralyzed when it comes to bringing life to my master bedroom. It would be a dream to have some fresh ideas from someone as gifted as you. So I’m on board with your new give away. Thank you for such an opportunity!
    First thing every morning, I see what’s happening at StoneGable. ?

  64. Would love your idea for my living room! After over 26 years as an Air Force wife, countless moves, many houses and government quarters…our retirement homes living room has had me stumped since we built this house five years ago! I am never sure if it’s the military wife in me that wants to move furniture…you know, because I am used to moving every couple years…or if it’s just because I can’t seem to get it just right! Great sized room…open concept…no walls…do you see my problem?!? Anyway, awesome give away idea, and so gracious of you to think of it!

    1. Thank you and your husband for your service! I now what you mean my daddy was in the Air Force 23 years!

  65. I have recently discovered your blog and I am just loving it. What a wonderful gift for your readers, I would love to win.

  66. Kymberly Starr says:

    Moving day is in four days. I would love to win this for my new place!

  67. Sounds like the best giveaway!

    Hope I am the lucky one!

    Thanks for the exciting opportunity to win!

  68. I’m always so inspired by your daily emails, your generosity is overwhelming!
    Blessings. ?

  69. Who wouldn’t LOVE your input…..I can say your Blog is my Very favorite. I swoon over your kitchen/keeping/family rooms. I remodeled my old kitchen 3 yrs ago, removing a wall and recycling almost all my orangey oak cabinets by painting them a soft white. I had the hardest time picking a white! Who knew there is such a difference in whites……. I ultimately chose White Duck by Sherwin Williams. I have the basics in place, it’s the WOW factors that are stumping me! Anyway, your blog is the most inspiring to me, can’t wait to make your pumpkin bread in a mason jar and your gingersnap cookies. Hope you have an awesome Autumn! Whoever wins, we all look forward to your stories!

  75. Thank you so much for the opportunity. I recently found your site, and am loving it! I’m hoping to read much more on here and looking for ideas to freshen up my home in the country. We have 1980 style paneling that I have to do something with, and afraid to take it down and have to deal with the wall paper that is underneath. The former owner put her wallpaper up with not just wallpaper paste, but also put Elmer’s Glue in with it! I’m so tired of living in what feels like a big wood box. But not young enough to jump into major projects like I used to. Good reason to hope I might win……right?

  76. Yvonne…..Wow ! What a delightful and generous giveaway ! It will be the best of times for the winner ! My challenge is a large loft in our newly built home that I intend to make into a creative center and ‘Ladies Salon’ (total opposite of ‘man-cave’) for the times when my gal-pals gather ….I want it to be unique with some intriguing feminine touches….how I would dearly love your Stone Gable stamp on it !!! You are one in a million !……Smiles……Anne

  77. Omg! What a wonderful idea! We have recently made some changes to the layout of our first
    floor and I would love your help making it look it’s best!!

    Well! I’m not usually very vocal on blogs…but I will have to make an exception for this! I definitely need some help here with this living room! I could tell just about anyone what to do with a room (I even worked as an Ethan Allen designer in a past life)…but I’m HOPELESS when it comes to my own house! And, of course, there’s always the problem of having champagne taste and a beer income! In the meantime, I’ll continue to work on decluttering….
