Think you have to coolest, freshest, juiciest studio apartment in all of DC? Step aside you Gore-Dean designed Georgetown Mansions, here is a contest to find the best dressed studio, junior one bedroom or full-on one-bedroom apartment in the lower-48 states. Supersized units need not apply.

Contest winners receive store credits from Design Within Reach, which has locations in Adams Morgan and Georgetown, and Apartment Therapy, who say:

"Because we've never accepted that a lack of space is fatal when it comes to creating an inspiring home and nothing jazzes us more than the hand-made home or the stylish studio wedged into an urban crevice. Because somewhere there is ONE APARTMENT that is so small and so cool that it should be recognized as the ultimate achievement in its class."

The deadline is March 13.

WAY TO GET A LEG UP ON THE CONTEST is to go to the design workship at the Adams Morgan DWR store. "Nervous about mixing modern pieces with Aunt Millie's armoire? Thinking of working with an architect?" If so, ask the experts Feb. 28th during the three-person panel discussion.

HGTV CASTING CALL. Beyond Productions in D.C. is casting a series about makeovers of children's spaces in local homes. "Do you have a place in (or outside) your home you want to turn into a cool space for your kids? We're looking ... a space around your home you'd like to transform," says the announcement. You provide the space and your whole family become the "cast" for about for a few days. Contact: katie_gerringer@beyond.com.au or Washington_DC@beyond.com.au.
