Best Of 2018



The 2018 Coastal Virginia Best of Readers Choice contest has ended. Stay tuned for Winners in an upcoming issue of Coastal Virginia Magazine.

How the Process Works:

  • Within each category, you'll see a drop down menu of options to vote for; select your choices.
  • Vote for your favorites by clicking the vote button beside your choice.
  • A Few Guidelines:
    • One ballot per person (e-mail address), per day please.
    • Nominees MUST be in the CORRECT Category in order to be counted.
    • Vote for as many or as few categories as you would like, as our new ballot allows you to navigate through different pages seamslessly.
    • You MUST submit your name and e-mail address with entry to validate your ballot.
    • Once the initial voting period ends on January 31, 2018  results are added up and double-checked for fraudulent voting or obvious abuse (those votes are then removed).
    • The finalist round will consist of business receiving top level votes received in their respective categories. These businesses will move into the finalist round for additional voting that runs from February 3 through  March 31, 2018.   Our contest winners will be those receiving the most votes overall for the entire duration of the contest.


Voting for the "Best Of" Coastal Virginia is a great way to support the places you frequent and the community individuals you love. In order to find out who is the best, we completely rely on you—our readers. So, vote away and spread the word!

Consignment Store (Home Decor & Furniture) Overall Award Winner

Decorate Rich was founded by Dusty Amado. For as long as Dusty can remember, she has been inspired by the architecture and decor of some of the classic structural icons of the world, such as the Vanderbilt Mansions, Biltmore Estates and the Palace of Versailles.
Amadio has always had an innate talent and love for searching out pieces with a "wow" factor to add beauty to a home as well as serve as focal inspirations for the room they are in. Decorate Rich is the result of Dusty's desire to bring this affordable elegance to customers in the Tidewater area and beyond. The store is a hybrid collection of both new and consignment "wow" pieces which are sure to add pop to any room.
