Join our October #stylecuratorchallenge: Bed styling

Can you believe it’s been a year since we did our last bed styling challenge?!

We’re definitely overdue for another one so this month we’ve partnered with the team at Canningvale to do just that!

October challenge: bed styling

For this month’s #stylecuratorchallenge, we’re asking you to style your bed.

Before you think bed styling isn’t your strong suit, rest assured it comes down to a few simple tricks!

Check out this quick video to see how easy it is to create a dreamy bed — you’ll see how we stacked the cushions in a non-symmetrical way for a bit of added interest.

There are endless ways you can style your bed — from totally minimalist to over the top — and in our opinion there’s no right or wrong way so we’d LOVE to see how you put your own spin on this challenge!

Is there really a greater feeling than coming home to an inviting bed that you just want to dive into? We think not!

But if you need more motivation to join in this month’s challenge, there’s a fab prize from Canningvale on offer! Keep scrolling to find out…

How to join in

1. Style your bed. You may find these bed styling tips useful 🙂

2. Take a photo of your bed/room. On your phone will do just fine, but try to take it when there’s plenty of natural light so we can really appreciate the space.

3. Upload your photo to social media. Be sure to include in the photo caption the #stylecuratorchallenge hashtag and our handle @stylecuratorau as well as Canningvale (@canningvalelove on Instagram and @Canningvale on Facebook). 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 ‘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!

There’s no need to feel shy or intimidated — so don’t hold back! We’re a fun and supportive community and you’ll find your photos will get lots of love from others who join in.
