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)

Guide Me:) I have 10 years of decorating books and magazines and I still collect them for ideas. Even so, I would sometimes like some help seeing a couple of spaces in a new light and figuring out how to freshen them up!
I ask for guidance for pretty much everything – especially when I’m trying new recipes. :)
I call my mother!
I need guidance when I have a tough decision to make.
Guide Me! I have taken many of the classes offered at Home Depot or Lowes. And have learned a lot on my DIY jouney.

Plus, I have JUST moved into a new apartment and could actually use guidance with decorating it!!
Erin R. says
My living room is a great size and I feel like I am not using all of the space. There are three pathways through the room that I can’t seem to conquer. Would love your help!
I need guidance on everything. Recipes from Pioneer Woman. Design ideas from you, made by girl, miss mustard seed…the list could go on and on. Oh, another biggie…fabric ideas from Elle Home Mags.
GUIDE ME!!!!! Google is the first place I stop!
GUIDE ME! *Please*
GUIDE ME! When don’t I need guidance/advice…that would be an easier question! But I go to my friends and family for advice on everything from simple restaurant suggestions to the big relationship stuff. Having people to bounce ideas off of is what makes life better!
My dad is my master consultant when it comes to any major home repairs. He had his own remodeling business for a few years when I was a child so he knows how to do everything from plumbing to electric etc. Now he just needs to teach me everything he knows!
Guide me! I’ve been wanting this for a long time!
GUIDE ME! I seek guidance with gardening and landscaping. There is so much to know about soil quality, drought tolerance, fertilizing, etc. It’s a little overwhelming at times.
I take all the guidance I can get!
Abby C. says
I am totally lost without my GPS in my droid phone.
rachel g says
Oh please let me win this one! I know just the room I need help with!
I rely on the internet for personal finance advice (boring, I know) and definitely for recipes!
Denise K says
GUIDE ME!!! I am in desperate need of guidence – just ask my husband! I’m horrible with directions, follow recipes and still cannot make meals right and, worst of all, my living room needs help! We just renovated our house and I’m stuck on what to do with our city living room.
Kate Meriwether says

Oh my goodness, I would love this!
GUIDE ME! I need help organizing everything!
Guide Me! I definitely need help at home improvement stores if I’m not there for some kind of crafty project…I especially needed help yesterday when my husband called me while I was there to ask me to get a spark plug for the lawnmower. :)
Sue Kane says
Guide me! I need some design guidance in our to be playroom/living room we haven’t begun yet!
GUIDE ME!I always need help!
I couldn’t – and wouldn’t want to – live without Google. It’s a DIYer’s best friend!
GUIDE ME! Yesterday’s beautiful weather gave me a chance to go outside, where I realized I really need guidance with landscaping our new home :) And guidance with a kitchen renovation. And guidance with how to pay for it all!
I always need help making the final decision – I narrow it down to 2 menu selections and then ask the waiter; I buy 2 similar b-day/X-mas gifts for the hubs and let him pick…
Guide Me! I need help changing the style of my living room while maintaining some of the pieces. I would love some help!
Guide me! I usually need help with cooking but especially driving anywhere. Before gps, I was one of THOSE people who had the map books in the trunk and on the front seat lol!
Leslie Wagner says
GUIDE ME! I rely on maps, GPS systems, recipes (for food and scrapbooking), friends, families, professionals, and whem there’s nothing else, Bing!!
GUIDE ME!!! I rely on my Dad for almost any guidance I need, except fashion or decorating. I’m sure it drives my husband crazy, but he is so patient with me. We were once caught in a flash flood 1,000 miles away and I called my dad (ha)!
Guide me! I always need a recipe when cooking. I wish I could make a recipe up on the go.
I seriously do not know what people did before they had the internet. From using YouTube to figure out how to thread my sewing machine needle for the first time to learning how to bake a pie crust (thanks Pioneer Woman!), it has guided me more times than I can count!
Google & Bing are my little helpers for most everything. MapQuest for directions.
I constantly need help with directions – even with the GPS I manage to get lost!
dana hoewt says

dana hoewt says
guide me….i need lots of help in many areas!
Nancy Holder says
Guide me in helping make some decisions for the kitchen or perhaps the formal livingroom/dining room that is never used.
I wish I had a guide for picking colors for my walls. My stairwell took 4 tries and my master took 7 paint samples.
GUIDE ME! I seek guidance from all sorts of sources – internet, subject experts, books, magazines, conversations. I would use this service to help with my master bedroom and hall way. Megan
Jackie H says
I rely heavily on google maps on my iphone! I plug in current location and type in where I want to go. Bam easy peasy. Now if I only could be a better navigator for my husband when reading google maps to him. haha
GUIDE ME! I seek guidance pretty much whenever I can, two heads are better than one right?! But I specifically seek guidance from my husband when it comes to design so it would be nice to actually be able to surprise him and get a room done without needing his input!
GUIDE ME! I need major help with decorating the house we’re getting ready to build. I have no idea where to start…
