Can’t wait for the May issue of Metropolitan Home to see if your chic dwelling is the winner of the annual “Met Home of the Year” contest? No problem. Every day this week, the magazine will showcase a new outstanding reader home design (one of the five finalists and six honorable mention winners) on its website, culminating with the grand-prize-winning Met Home of the Year announcement next Monday, March 2. The winner will also be featured in the May issue.
“The online unveiling of the reader winners allows us the opportunity to showcase more photos and information about the residential designs than we can in the pages of Metropolitan Home,” said editor-in-chief Donna Warner in a statement issued by the magazine. “These homes and spaces are wonderful, and we want to give them a platform that will allow each of them to have their moment in the spotlight.” Among the winning entries? “A movie theater turned loft, an all-ages tree house, the savviest kitchen in Texas, and the ultimate PETA-friendly design solution.” We just hope the latter doesn’t involve chimpanzees, no matter how metropolitan.
