It goes without saying that we’re big fans of decorating and design help through the magic of the internet. So of course we’re psyched that one of you is gonna score some customized assistance from My Design Guide. They tap into a network of real interior designers to help you out with everything from quick fix mini-consults (which come free just by completing their StyleFinder quiz) to full blown 3-D renderings with paint color picks, furniture selections, and a shopping list (see a sample here). The latter of which our winner will be cashing in on this week. Woot.
- PRIZE: A 3D Custom Room Design from My Design Guide (a $229 value)
- TO ENTER: Comment on this post with the words “GUIDE ME!” and…
- BONUS QUESTION: … tell us about when you need guidance. Do you rely on maps or navigation systems to get you where you’re going? Recipe sites and books for cooking help? Friend and family input when it comes to relationship advice? Or pro assistance at the home improvement store?

GUIDE ME! I always need help deciding what kind of computer things to buy/do – apps, for one confuse me to no end. Good thing my husband has LOTS of opinions.
Emily Johnson says
I definitely always follow directions, especially when making a recipe.
GUIDE ME! Young House Love guides me to fabulous design ideas for my house.
Guide me! I absolutely rely on my iPhone to navigate me anywhere and everywhere. So sad to be so reliant on a piece of technology.
I need guidance for everything – navigation, how to work the tv, etc. I really need some guidance on what to do with my formal living room which is part of one big space that includes my dining room and family room. How the heck am I supposed to make it look like there aren’t two living rooms in the exact same space? Hoping I win this one . . . LOL.

we just moved into our first home and i’m so clueless about so much — do we need to paint our living room? what color? should we replace the rug? what accessories do i need?
i seem to know what i like when i see things in other people’s homes, but i’m a disaster when i try to recreate things.
Guide me! I am constantly reading magazines, newspapers and various websites and blogs for anything to do with running, cooking, travelling, books, professional development and music…and very recently (it’s about time) decorating.
GUIDE ME!!! I wouldn’t get anywhere without my GPS – I even like to turn it on if I know exactly where I’m going!
I do not have the decorator gene, so please guide me :-D
Julie L says
Guide me! Google maps is where it’s at!
Haley C says
GUIDE ME!!! My family always makes fun of me…I can’t visualize ANYTHING. I always have to see it in person, so whether it comes down to how a dress will look on a person to what color I should paint a room….I usually have to wing it or ask for help. Sad, I know…but true!
I use GPS all the time..not sure I’d find my way otherwise! I also love trying new recipes, so cookbooks and especially online recipe sites are a hit with me!
GUIDE ME! I can barely match a pair of socks – let alone a room of furniture, paints and fabrics.
Guide Me ! I need decorating guidance.
GUIDE ME! I need guidance for everything from cooking to decorating. However, I never use GPS! I have an amazing sense of direction.
Cookbooks – always. I need help in my living room!
GUIDE ME! I always need a recipe when cooking…just can never wing it!
GUIDE ME!!! I need help in most things I do :) GPS is a godsend, internet is a must – what did we do before it came along??? And of course, your blog is my biggest go-to now for design and decorating help!
I use cook books and the internet to get recipes from all the time!
guide me! i always need help with directions – i have lived in the same city my whole life, and still use my GPS almost daily!
Karla Chiarelli says
Guide me! I would be lost without my Iphone maps app or google!!
Guide me! I get help from my spiritual father about life’s dilemmas.
GUIDE ME!! We are in the process of decorating our first home and could use all the help we can get! This would be a BIG help for our living room, which we are currently struggling with. I often use resources for cooking (cookbooks, internet), directions (LOVE my GPS) and of course my friends for everything else!
GUIDE ME! I need guidance with just about everything. I make no decisions anymore without consulting the internet!
GUIDE ME! I’m pretty good with driving and don’t use a GPS, I can use a recipe as a starting point and improvise the rest. But I cannot for the life of me decorate my apartment, figure out where the furniture should go, or determine if things “go” together.
I need guidence with technology! Sometimes I can’t even work my computer!!
GUIDE ME! I use you guys for guidance on all things DIY- I’m in the process of painting a dresser for our nursery and your tutorial is so helpful!

Please GUIDE ME! I need guidance on this Blue gree room that I have right now. I can’t decide on the furniture!
GUIDE ME! Home improvement stores and the internet, your blog all help when I’ve got questions about home improvement.
GUIDE ME!! Man alive do I need help via recipes! I’ve got no natural skills when it comes to cooking, so I’m all about the instructions. :)
Angela S. says
Guide ME: If I didn’t have my GPS, I would be totally lost. If I’m going out of my little home town I might as well be lost. Unless it’s on the main road, I can’t find it! :)
Liz Farrar says
GUIDE ME. Internet, Google Maps, online recipes, etc.
Couldn’t live without my GPS. Although….I do talk back to her, and call her “Silly Cow” when I know she’s wrong. As in “No, you Silly Cow…I’m not going to do that. Recalculate.”
I’m lost without GPS… even around the corner from my house. :(
I still need help with DIY projects at home. Whether it be sewing or making a headboard I usually rely on my hubs to help keep me on the right track!
GUIDE ME! I have a lousy sense of direction and never leave home without my GPS!
Katelyn N says

i want to do another room… a romantic and lush master bedroom!
YHL and HGTV are my inspirations!
GUIDE ME! I’m a good cook, but I do need recipes or some sort of pattern to follow in pretty much everything I do.
