Congratulations to TSW Architectural Designer Ross Vogel, who has been named a “Top 10 Finalist” in My Home Improvement magazine’s Rising Stars of the Home Industry awards. Fifty home design/building/décor professionals were nominated, and thousands of votes cast to determine the Top 10. At TSW, Ross specializes in multifamily home design, and several of his designs have won awards, including the Westside Station Townhomes (Gold & Silver OBIES). While he is well-versed in all types of home design, his personal preference is a rustic style, and he continues to refine design ideas for his dream home — a marriage between a barn and a house with vaulted ceilings, high clerestory windows and garage-style doors that open the home directly to the outdoors. He is also the creator of a home decor and style blog, www.rusticdecorguy.com. Through his blog, Ross explores rustic-themed decorating, cooking, and lifestyle ideas under the theme “unlimited ideas on a limited budget”. He is also in the process of writing a cookbook, “Food from the Farm Table”. We’ve always known Ross is a Rising Star of the Home Industry and we’re proud the rest of Atlanta now knows it, too.
