"Holiday Decorating Contest - the Judges . . . "

um . . . *


Well . . . we're almost there.  Just a few more days . . . and we'll officially see the beginning of the fourth annual "Tartanscot Holiday Decorating Contest!"

But - I don't want us to get too ahead of ourselves.  There are still turkeys to brine and potatoes to mash for at least the next several days.  Time to gather with friends and family and reflect on the past year and hopefully appreciate all the good things that our lives have brought us.  And there's pie too.

If you missed the last posting about all the rules and such for the contest - you can take a look here for the details!

But . . . for the moment . . . let's assume you know all the 'ins and outs' of the contest . . . but want to see the names and the faces of our judging panel.  So without further ado - though, I really love a good 'ado' - here we go.

"The Judges . . . "

Tobi Fairley
Interior Designer Tobi Fairley has been on the panel of judges from the very 
beginning - and she brings her love of classic southern style and 
her signature focus on colour with her again this year.  

Brian Patrick Flynn
Another judge who clearly knows his way around the colour wheel - Brian Patrick Flynn's 
amazing interior design work can be found both in print and online.  Bringing a 
fresh voice to the group - Brian's style is a remarkable 
hybrid - southern, coastal, masculine, and colourful.  

Grant K. Gibson
Back for another year - fellow San Francisco resident Grant Gibson brings his 
beautifully edited style and european sensibility to our panel.  You 
can always keep up with Grant on his blog - or his Instagram feed.

Ronda Rice Carman
Speaking of european influences, Ronda Rice Carman brings her 'world traveler's' eye to 
the proceedings again this year.  Well known as the writer of her blog - and her 
smashing book "Designers at Home" (which includes a lovely chapter 
on my own home) - Ronda helps to up our 'international game' yet again this year.

Patricia Shackelford
Bringing a fresh voice to the proceedings, Patricia Shackelford joins 
in this year for the first time.  A spectacular writer - with a keen eye 
for design -you might know her from her much-read blog . . . or 
from her articles in Architectural Digest.    

Michael Devine
And rounding out our group, Michael Devine joins us from the east coast - bringing 
his classic style as well as his love of textiles.  You may recognize him from his 
textile collection, his amazing assortment of home accessories
or from his upcoming book from Rizzoli. 

* and as a side note - there's nothing more delightful than googling the completely obscure term "scales of justice holiday ornament" - and getting pages and pages of options.  Praise the interweb!
