Please Do This Today At Apartment Therapy

Vote for The Vamp and for New Orleans!

It's a bit of pain the way Apartment Therapy has set up their Room For Color contest.
You have to register to vote.
And now you have to vote again for those who have made it to the next round!
If you already registered when you voted in the last round, this time should be easy peasy.

I made it to the next round with my spicy Modern Creole room!

I've been in New Orleans for ten years now, but I bring a little of my New York City decor style to my love for my adopted city of New Orleans.

The room you are looking at is my office.

You peek through an original archway into my office, which is flanked by a pair of vintage skeleton charts. One of them sports a Mardi Gras mask.
The color palette is Late Creole Tomato (a coral based red), Vibrant Turquoise, and Sophisticated Chartreuse.
Generous built in shelves house a collection of design books. A white cowhide rug makes the space cozy. A pair of pale aqua lamps with couture lampshades from Paris grace the desk, which is an antique table from France. Nestled into a corner is a Gris-Gris altar, filled with mementos found and given to me over the years. During Katrina, our home was spared, and many credit the power of this altar for saving it!

So please vote! A vote for this room is a vote for New Orleans, as well as for The Visual Vamp!

But please vote right away! You only get 24 hours to cast your vote in this round. If you pull me through to the next round, you'll be ready to make me a winner!

Go HERE to vote NOW! Look for the skeletons! I'm in the section called "The South". Remember you have to go and vote today only, Wednesday October 21.

Thank you so very much!

Just voted a few hours ago :) But, if you need more tomorrow, or the next day just let me know!
Good luck too! I seriously considered the others, just to reassure myself that I wasn't biased, and nope, they didn't do it like you do V..they were just putting things and painting things, compared to your emotive heart and soul, with disipline, styling. I had to vote your way anyway! you d'best one!. :)

Wonderful apartment!
You´ll certainly win!
I rented a very colorful furnished apartment in Recoleta, Buenos Aires, near the down town. I suggest that service called ForRent Argentina: Buenos Aires apartments For Rent.
