And the winner is Ryan Louis from Scarborough, ON. (Congratulations Ryan!). Ryan has won the opportunity to experience the downtown Toronto lifestyle, living in a cool loft as well as the opportunity to work along side of House and Home staff, learning about magazine publishing, lifestyle branding, marketing and advertising. Ryan also has an interesting blog updated weekly, where he shares his experience at the office and in his temporary home.
There's some interesting things to learn from his blog on how things are done in a publishing company. I didn't know they had a merchandising room for magazine. Then again, it makes sense when you think about all the little setups they have to put together. I'm looking forward to learn more about how things are done there.
Another interesting part (at least for me) is anything related to his current loft and the various design problems that need a solution. The latest one is the lack of light in the sleeping area and the inconvenient art/headboard. He was looking for something simple that would be relatively easy to install.
A possible solution would be to use wall lights such as the Kryssbo (one on each side of the bed) or a series of Orgel lamps from IKEA above the bed.

That wall seems like it could use some tall art as well...
