And the winner is (drum roll, please)…

Shirley Okumoto of Nuuanu has won our $1000 Tommy Bahama rug, compliments of Pacific Home Furnishings! Now how did she win this fabulous prize? Well, Shirley was one of the many who entered our online contest by registering for free membership at RSVPstyle.com during the one week following the Remodel It Right expo. Just yesterday, her name was selected as the winner in our random drawing. We sent her an email, and the first thing she said when she called this morning was, I’ve never won anything before!

What a perfect winner! She sounded so enthusiastic and truly happy. Shirley told me that she and her husband are remodeling their living room and family room. They put in new hardwood flooring and are trying to figure out what colors to select and how to decorate the spaces. So they came to the expo and bought our Starter Set. Shirley said it’s been very helpful—not only is she learning about colors and color schemes, she also discovered she has too much wood in her house, so she wants to start layering in more textures.

And her husband is really getting into it as well! When they got home, he was the one who reminded Shirley to register for the contest. He also watched the DVD, which is great and happens many times, and that’s going to come in handy because they do go shopping together.

Shirley said this rug is going to be perfect for her home. When I told her that she can go to PHF and pick the rug she wants, she was really happy. She said Good, she’s going to watch the rest of the DVD first because she wants to learn more. I can’t wait to see what she selects!

So congratulations Shirley, and don’t forget to upload your photos of your space before the rug and then after! And thanks to PHF for being such a wonderful supporter of RSVPstyle. I know the rug will find a very happy home in the Okumotos’ remodeled space!
