May #stylecuratorchallenge: Style your dining table

This month we’ve shuffled around our challenges to bring you a dining table styling challenge which was at the request of many of YOU on Instagram.

Seriously, how does one style their dining table when it’s not being eaten at?

It’s something I’ve personally been struggling with lately and when I asked for your ideas on Instagram the other week, you suggested we run it as the next #stylecuratorchallenge so that’s exactly what we’re doing!

Of course, we can’t have a challenge without a fab prize so we’ve curated a STUNNING collection of products from the Style Curator Store valued at over $200! These are latest season pieces from a collection of talented local and international makers.

How to join in:

To join in this month’s fun dining table styling challenge and be in with a chance to win that incredible prize pack, simply:

1. Style your dining table. Check out these gorgeous dining spaces for ideas and inspiration to style your home!

2. Take a photo of your space. On your phone will do just fine, it’s not a photography competition πŸ˜‰

3. Upload your photo to social media. Be sure to include in the caption the #stylecuratorchallenge hashtag and our handles @stylecuratorau as well as our online store @stylecuratorstore (it’s also a good idea to tag us on the pic so we definitely see it now that Instagram is shadow banning some accounts!). We will be checking Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and even Google+.

4. Show some love. Check out the photos other people have uploaded of their home by following the #stylecuratorchallenge hashtag. Like, comment and encourage each other along.

5. Tell your friends about the challenge. The more people who play along, the more fun this is going to be! You can β€˜share’ this page to any social media site or email it to a friend.

Did you know most #stylecuratorchallenge winners have generally uploaded multiple images throughout the month? It makes sense, the more times you enter, the better your chances so feel free to mix the look up or photograph the space from different angles!

      He he, and as much as I love interior decorating, I’m a bit hopeless when it comes to fashion styling πŸ™‚

    This is cool! I love little challenges like this. I definitely agree that when tables aren’t being used for a fancy dinner, they just sort of sit there awkwardly. They’re difficult to style!


    • Gina Ciancio

      Awkward is such a great way of describing it! Hopefully these ideas have helped you style your dining table when it’s not being eaten at x

  11. Love how you styled your living room! I’d join the contest but my dining room is definitely not up to par haha. Maybe someday after I move it will look better! xx

    • Gina Ciancio

      Ha ha, oh no, don’t feel that way. These challenges are all about making the most of what we have now so we’d love you to join in! xx
