design*sponge at home giveaway: winners

After the first leg of the book tour, it was nice to settle onto the couch yesterday and dive into the entries for the book giveaway. I was so blown away by the fun (and funny) pictures everyone sent in that there was no way I could pick only four winners. So I chose seven. These seven people will be getting a personalized copy of Design*Sponge at Home, a copy of the D*S summer newspaper and some ribbon flowers from the book’s chapter openers. Thank you so much to everyone who entered and to everyone who’s been so kind to pick up a book already. If you’re interested in checking out the book, you can get a copy here: Amazon, Barnes & Noble (comes with exclusive digital content), West Elm, Anthropologie (comes with exclusive printed content), Indiebound, Books-a-Million and iTunes (International sellers and more shops can be seen here).

Congrats to Alfredo, Kristin Sorra, Lindsay Johnston, Shari, Nicole Laporte, Carrie and Jasmine. You can see their fun photos after the jump. xo, grace

Alfredo’s outfits were too amazing not to win.

Kristin as a cute illustration reading the book!

From Lindsay: a girl and her cat. A scene close to my heart.

Nicole is allergic to cats. How can I not send her a book? A life without happy cats like these needs a cute book.

Shari’s children made an adorable version of the book. Two thumbs up.

Carrie opening her book.

Jasmine and her bunny ears.

    I love Carrey’s “opening book” scene and Alfredo gave me a good laugh! They all did wonderfully, I wouldn’t have been able to pick just 1 myself.

    All the photos are so great! The toddler with crooked glasses is too adorable. I got my pre-ordered book from Amazon the day it came out and have been flipping through it every night to unwind!

  9. liz says:

    Got my copy over the weekend… Couldn’t help wondering, just how many cats make an appearance within the pages of this wonderful book?

    1. Grace Bonney says:


      funny question- that’s exactly what my editor said “there are entirely too many cats in this book”. i’m not sure how many, but there are a lot ;)


  10. Bunny ears and kettle one! Love!

  11. Debbie says:

    Just like chocolate, you cannot have too many cats!

  12. Gayle says:

    Where do I enter mypassword to see the additional digital images from purchasing my book from B&N? I pre-ordered my book and after the release date it was 10 long business days before it was delivered. But I love it, and it was worth the wait.
