Oh Joy

the {splendid summer} winners...
24 Aug 2012


You guys did a seriously amazing job putting together your boards for the Splendid Summer contest. I reviewed over 900 boards and found myself getting inspired by so many images I had never seen as well as so many awesome Pinterest accounts that I've since started following. It was tough to narrow down the winners, but I chose the top 4 {grand prize winner + 3 runners-up} based on those who created a mood that felt cohesive within the board and made me want to jump right into their vision of their perfect summer.


Megan G. from Minneapolis, MN is our grand prize winner for her beautiful retro-inspired board. The colors, mix of photos and illustrations, and retro-style images of summer really captured a mood that I just loved. Megan won the grand prize of an Apple iPad in a Clare Vivier for Splendid case, a $500 Splendid gift card, Splendid skin care products, and a Splendid towel and bag.


Lindsay M. from Brooklyn, NY captured her summer in a more photo documentary way, and I loved the outdoorsy nature of the images she selected.


Amy H., a student in New York, created an eclectic and vibrant version of her perfect summer with colorful and quirky images.


Finally, Minna S. from Washington, D.C., put together a board that looks like a big bowl of rainbow sherbet with it's consistent color story throughout images of fashion, food, and home decor. These three lucky ladies receive $250 Splendid gift card, Splendid skin care products, and a Splendid towel and bag.

Also, a few more from the top 10 whose boards I really enjoyed: Jennifer Stuart, Honest Vintage, Jennifer Govero, and Sina Richert. Thanks again to everyone who took the time to enter and for showing me your summer! — Joy
