Habitat for Humanity Design Duel

Posted by    |    August 30th, 2012 at 5:07 pm

Dallas Habitat for Humanity is once again launching their “Design Duel” to raise awareness for their Dallas Habitat ReStores. The ReStores sell new and gently used home decorating and improvement products such as cabinets and light fixtures at 50 to 70 percent off the retail price. All proceeds go toward the construction of new Dallas Area Habitat homes.


“Design Duel” will put the skills of two top design firms, Breckinridge Taylor and Pulp Design studios, to the test. The Challenge?  They are given only $3,000 dollars and three weeks to redesign two deserving families’ living rooms using only materials found in Dallas Habitat Restores. Once the designers have completed their rooms, your votes combined with the votes of a panel of local interior designers and media personalities will the determine the ultimate “Top Designer”.

The details:

• From August 31 to September 14, Dallas Habitat is looking for two Dallas County homeowners to win the three-week design makeover.

• Both homes will be redesigned using materials and furnishings for sale at Dallas Area Habitat’s home improvement stores.

• Residents can enter at designduel.org or in any Dallas Area ReStore (2800 North Hampton Road in Dallas, 3546 Forest Lane in Dallas, and 451 West Interstate 30 in Garland)

The first part of the Design Duel is winding down, the designers have only one more week to complete each of their redesigns. After they’re done with the finishing touches it will be time for you to vote. From November 6th to November 12th you can go to www.designduel.org and see before and after pictures of the redesigned rooms and cast your vote. The designers with the most votes from the public will have 20 points added to their score from the judges, so go check out what the designers can do and vote for who you think does it the best!
