The Met Home Contest is Heating Up

Is this the Met Home of the Year?

In past years the winners of the Met Home of the Year Contest have run in the pages of the magazine but this year, the battleground for the modernist accolade, the luxe prizes, and the public praising is on PointClickHome. And it could all be yours if you enter your home by November 18th.

To give you a little taste of the competition we dug into our metcontest inbox and pulled out a house worth a mention: Trowbridge Farm. House is an understatement considering that we are talking about a 9,000-square-foot former hotel from the 1930s. When this couple first saw this Catskills behemoth in 1994, even in its state of disrepair with mushrooms growing on the living room floor and vines coming in the windows, they knew they had to have it. It took eight years to gut the 50-bedroom and ten-bathroom hotel, put on a new roof and plan the final renovation. We have to commend this labor of love and adore the historic and modern mix but the question is, is this:

Help us decide if think this house or its individual rooms have what it takes…and if you think so, let us know with a comment, but if not, maybe you should put your home into the running.

To enter email and include photographs of your room/s and a short story of your home’s design. The best part of this contest is that in addition to whole house submissions, any space within your home is a viable entry (a mosaic tile floor, shaped like a zebra rug, is in the running right now, if that tells you anything). And for a $5,000 shopping spree to Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams or the great chance to win one of the 13 prizes for the Editor’s Favorite rooms–it’s worth an easy email entry.

Last call for submissions is November 18th, so be bold, be house proud, and send those pictures in to!
