Our sister mag California Home + Design is asking readers and the statewide design community to help round up and nominate the top 10 best California creations for a year-end feature they call their ‘The Hit List." Hop on over to their submission page and send in 2011's most stunning and innovative products, places, websites and design. CH+D readers will then vote on which items will make the list and winners will be featured in their November/December 2011 issue. Good luck!
With all the "it's like being one with the ocean" talk, it's somehow a disconnect to view surfing as harmful to the environment. But the petrochemicals used in the foam of many boards can be nasty stuff. California Home+Design takes a look this month at San Francisco's Hess Surfboards and their mission to build better, cleaner and longer lasting boards.
If so, Calfornia Home+Design Magazine wants to see it. Submit two to three pictures of your fabulous dining room online to chdmag.com with the name of the designer or homeowner to enter. Readers will then vote on whose space has the most style, with the winner getting supreme bragging rights and their dining room featured in an upcoming issue of the magazine.
