#beingathome, #zuhausesein, VDM, German design, photo contest, winners

A few weeks ago I introduced you to the cool initiative by the German association of the furniture industry VDM entitled #beingathome or #zuhausesein in German. It was a global photo contest to emphasize the importance of a personal home full of character. The VDM invited people from around the world to send in pictures of what #beingathome means to them in ten defined categories. I was honored to be one of the jury members and to help pick the following ten lucky winners out of 232 photographs from 19 countries:

    Gorgeous photos of lovely living spaces. I didn’t know about the competition till now, would have been tempted to enter. Bet it was difficult to pick out the winning entry.
