Sum up your summer homestyle and win with Mollie Makes!

Put your blog photography and styling skills to the test this summer for your chance to win a money-can’t-buy prize!
Win with Mollie Makes! As well as spending plenty of time outdoors, summer is the time to brighten up your indoor space, too. With the windows open, sun streaming in, it’s time for a spot of restyling. Whether it’s a mantelpiece or a curious little nook, nothing makes us happier than when we’re tinkering, rearranging things, and making our home even lovelier than before.

Home tours make for one of our favourite kind of features and blog posts, and we love to see how differently bloggers put together their interiors. So we’re launching the Mollie Makes Sum up your Summer Homestyle competition.

We’re inviting you to style, photograph, and blog your new homestyle to enter into the competition. Get inspired by our Summer Homestyle book (free with Mollie Makes issue 40) and give your home an update – pick a colour scheme, style up a forgotten corner, whip up a new craft project or arrange some flowers – if you’ve got an idea, we’d love to see it!

Blog your best handiwork, and the most creative, colourful entry will appear in Mollie Makes 43, out on 30 July 2014.
