And The Winner Is……Home Improvement Thursday

And The Winner Is……Home Improvement Thursday

A few weeks ago, The Plumbette and I announced our Instagram competition. Entrants were to post a photo of their home improvement, which could be anything from an extension to a vignette you had styled. It did not matter the size or scope of the project, if it had improved your home life in some way, it was a valid entry.

We had so many wonderful entries, who shared so many amazing parts of their homes, today I would like to share a few of my favourites. In no particular order, here are my favourite entries for our #HITmystyle Instagram competition.

@boomerangjane shared her lounge room styling update, the first in 20 years! Looks sensational to me ?

@apugnamedspencer posted a picture of this cute space in their sunroom that was changed into a ‘chill space’. Isn’t it lovely!


I just love this front porch as shared by @lemmie25 so fresh and bright!

@mrs.lauren.roney showed off her lounge room reporting how comfy her grown up couches are ? I love the rug!

But enough of all this excitement and sharing, it’s time to reveal the winner of our #HITmystyle competition…..Drum roll please……….

Vicki from @boiledeggsandsoldiers has been busily renovating her Queenslander and shared the entrance way into her home. I adore the colour on the walls, and how the colours in the peacock feathers picks up the blue in the wall and the green in the palm trees. Stunning space!

Vicki is the lucky recipient of a $100 Coles Myer voucher. Thank you to all our entrants, for a glimpse into some of the other entrants, head on over to The Plumbette.
