#stylecuratorchallenge is here! August challenge: Style your shelf #shelfie

Style Curator Challenge is finally here and we are so So SO excited!

What is #stylecuratorchallenge?

For such a long time I’ve wanted to start a fun but meaningful way of connecting our massive community of interior-loving enthusiasts and this is IT!

Over the years we have received countless emails and comments about people feeling stuck and uninspired about their home. How to decorate spaces, particularly on a budget, is also one of the biggest calls for help we get. And when I moved into my new home, I myself felt completely overwhelmed by the huge task ahead of me.

Style Curator Challenge

That’s when it dawned on me — why not create a fun challenge where each month we pick a small pocket of the home to makeover? We don’t have to go overboard or spend a fortune, but let’s transform one little section of our home into a space we can enjoy. Bit by bit, these monthly challenges will amount to us creating the stylish homes we’ve always dreamed of!

This is a way of turning the motto of our blog the pursuit of a stylish home into a practical challenge and together we can all get there!

Of course, you can’t have a challenge without an awesome prize so each month we’ll invite one of our favourite brands to provide a mega prize.

August challenge: style your #shelfie

This month we want you to style your shelf!

It doesn’t matter if you have one teeny tiny shelf or a huge book case, or if the shelf is in your laundry, kids room or study.

Any shelf, any size, anywhere in the home.

#shelfie styling is taking over social media and it’s a nice and easy way for us to dip our toes into this whole challenge thing.


What to do:

1. Style a shelf in your home. We have all the tips and tricks you need about shelf styling here.

2. Take a photo of your shelf. On your phone will do just fine, it’s not a photography competition 😉

3. Upload your photo to social media. Be sure to include the #stylecuratorchallenge hashtag and tag us (@stylecuratorau) as well as the lovely people at Zakkia (@zakkiahomewares on Instagram or @zakkiashop on Facebook) who have provided the mega prize! 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.

So what do you say? With nothing to lose and only a more stylish home to gain, I hope you’ll join in!

  1. This looks great. Will get the DSLR out I think. We have not long moved into a new home and although I try I never seem to be able to create the beautiful look that I see in some of the photos here. I love your site by the way.

    • Thanks Jane and we’d love you to join in! The best thing about styling is you can only keep getting better and better 😉

    • Yay, so happy to hear you’ll join in Sarah! Lots of gorgeous photos are already being shared so be sure to check out #stylecuratorchallenge hashtag too 🙂
