Judges comments:

“The designers did a nice job of incorporating multiple light sources in a tight space, and I love the orange wall!” —Nunes

“Vibrant orange, soft organic accents and exposed brick are welcoming in this loft-like interior.”—Pelafas

“The artwork flowing from wall to ceiling adds customization and interest to the ceiling.” —Jercha

“Since we are located in a noted art community, we hired a local painter and muralist to design the new ginkgo leaf that adorns our walls and the faux wood finish on our reception desk. We’ve taken it a step further by incorporating the design in our print advertising.”
