My home, my way: Bemz
Are you proud of your home? Does it reflect your individuality, your personal choice? Is it an expression of the city slicker in you, a soulful organized minimalist. Or is it intensely personal, free and spontaneous with unexpected contrasts and styles. Perhaps you love white in all its shades for your cozy retreat. We want to see it.
Show the world your world. Share your home with style-conscious, creative individuals like you. Inspire and be inspired! And you could win a 5000 Swedish Crown* shopping spree at Bemz. (*5000 Swedish Crowns (or SEK) is approximately equivalent to €500 / £400 / US$700 / CND$800.)
Send us a picture of your Bemz-covered furniture and we'll give you 10% off anything at Bemz. Weekly top five entries will be featured right here on this blog. If fame and glory isn't enough of an incentive then how about this... we will also give away two cushion covers each month and automatically enter each month's top entries into a free prize draw for a chance to win a 5000 Swedish Crown* shopping spree at Bemz!
So how does it work?
Send us a picture of your sofa, chair or cushion and its stylish Bemz slipcover. Make sure you send us a great photo that shows how it enhances your décor. Along with your picture, finish the sentence "Bemz helped make my home my way...". Be creative!
Your entry will be reviewed by a panel of Bemz judges who will decide on the weekly five entries to post right here on It's a Cover Up. If you make it that far then the grand prize 5000 SEK* shopping spree is within your grasp! Each week, our blog readers will be able to choose their favorite from the new set of entries. (Don't worry, we'll send you the URL to forward to friends and family so they can help you out!)
Finally, after the competition is over, we'll take the three entries most favored by our readers and ask a panel of independent judges from among the world's best design and shelter blogs to assess them. The winner will get the grand prize 5000 SEK* shopping spree at Bemz. Find out more about our judges through It's a Cover Up where they'll be introduced more thoroughly.
What do I do now?
- Take a photo of your Bemz slipcover on your furniture. It's best to take it in daylight. Try to compose the photo so we can see your sofa/armchair in the context of the style elements in the room.
- Complete the sentence "Bemz helped make my home my way..."
- Make sure you include your name, address and contact phone number.
- Send your photo and the above details to firstname.lastname@example.org with My home, my way in the subject heading. We must receive it no later than March 31, 2009 (but the sooner the better, so you can qualify for the monthly prize draw).
Then follow it all live here, where you and your friends can vote on all the entries. (Tip - tell your friends!)
PLEASE REMEMBER TO PUT My home, my way IN THE SUBJECT HEADING OF YOUR EMAIL ENTRY (OTHERWISE YOUR 10% DISCOUNT CODE WILL NOT BE SENT TO YOU AUTOMATICALLY!)
