I said we’d carry on the #interiorsaddictheartyourhome Instagram challenge until we were all out of lockdown, so this may be the last one. Let’s make it a goodie! The idea is, as you know, to help you all fall in love with your homes a bit more!
To keep it simple, I’m sharing all the coming week’s challenges and prizes below. You can do them all or just one.
Complete the task by midnight that day, snap a pic and share it on your Instagram feed (must be on public for us to be able to see it). Tag us @interiorsaddict and use the hashtag #interiorsaddictheartyourhome to be in with a chance of winning. Sometimes we love the captions more than the photos, so don’t forget your words too!
Good luck! Any questions, do drop them in the comments below!
Monday 15 June
Prize: A Cocolux Australia large Luna brass candle with onyx trivet in island fig, cassis and peach worth $100.
Task: Create a vignette somewhere unexpected in your home.
Tuesday 16 June
Prize: A $300 artwork voucher from United Interiors. They work with a global team of artists and designers to deliver curated contemporary artworks made to order.
Task: Move some things around to create a colour clash/pop somewhere in your home that excites you! You don’t have to commit to keeping it forever, but just step a little outside your colour comfort zone. It might inspire you!
Wednesday 17 June
Prize: A hand wash and lotion duo with tray (worth $79) in your choice of three scents from al.ive body, the new brand from former Blockheads Alisa and Lysandra. This will look fab in your kitchen or bathroom, and help with all the extra hand washing we’re doing at the moment!
Task: Do something special for your bathroom: get out some special bath salts you were gifted but haven’t opened, roll up all your clean towels and arrange them in a nice basket, move a pot plant in there, cut some foliage from the garden and put it by the sink, clear out the vanity. The choice is yours!
Thursday 18 June
Prize: A luxury sanitising scent from Have A Nice Day Goods (H.A.N.D)! Fragranced with Australian botanical essential oils with mood-enhancing benefits, the 50ml hydration bundle worth $44.95 contains a pocket size 10ml with a pouch and funnel, and a 50ml refill.
Task: Cosy up your lounge or bedroom for winter. Add a lamp, blanket, throw, rug, candle, for example. Doesn’t have to be new, you can pinch it from somewhere else in you home!
Friday 19 June
Prize: These two beautiful Marque vessels in terracotta, pink and grey, from OZ Design Furniture worth almost $165.
Task: Declutter. Anything you like, just declutter it and feel the smugness!
Saturday 20 June
Prize: This lightweight, versatile drawstring palest pink backpack (Squid Pocket Large) from iconic Aussie bag brand Crumpler worth $49. In celebration of the fact we are all getting out and about a bit more now, or to help us go for that socially distant picnic, bike ride or overnight stay.
Task: Give your handbag/backpack/work or nappy bag a tidy out and possibly even a clean! Replace only what you need, including your hand sanitiser, naturally! Satisfying much? This one’s not technically about your home, but we all have a bag that could do with some attention!
Sunday 21 June
Prize: Two fab new books from Hardie Grant: Simply Living Well by Julia Watkins and The Less Waste No Fuss Kitchen by Lindsay Miles.
Task: In the spirit of reusing and recycling, list something to give away on your local Freecyle or Facebook Group. Even if you could get a bit of money for it, just give it away. It’ll make you feel good, it’ll make the recipient feel great, and it’ll get something not loved or used out of your home! The hardest part will be making this task into a photo but you’ve got this!
Good luck! And if you’re confused about anything, do ask in the comments.
