If improving your property is a labour of love, or you have a passion for the very latest trends, share a photo of your home and put yourself in the frame for a fantastic prize.
All you need to do to enter is to share a photo of an area in your home or a complete room. From an Instagram-worthy vase of flowers on a windowsill or a lovingly-restored piece of furniture, to a retiled hallway or a complete kitchen renovation – all are eligible to be entered into Anglian’s #StyledByMe competition.
The photo could reflect your design flair or individuality; it could show a dramatic transformation, or it could be a snap that perfectly captures how even the smallest finishing touches can make all the difference to our homes.
A #StyledByMe winner will be selected in each of Anglian’s four divisions after the closing date of Sunday 1st July 2018, along with a national winner. With a £500 cash prize up for grabs for each of the divisional winners and £1,000 for the national winner, the successful entrants will get a helping hand to continue improving and tailoring their homes this summer.
Interior Designer and star of Channel 4’s DIY SOS, Sophie Robinson (@sophierobinsoninteriors), will lend her support to the competition once again, so look out for her posts on social media. She’ll also be our guest judge, helping us choose the four regional winners and overall national winner.

Meet the fabulous winners of last year's competition!
For inspiration, take a look our national winner and four divisional winners from last year’s competition, as selected by Anglian’s guest judge and much-loved interior stylist Sophie Robinson, who will also be judging this year’s #StyledByMe competition.
Here are Sophie’s comments on why each of these standout entries came out on top.
“The playroom really impressed me with the thoroughness in design. The colour scheme is strong throughout and there is just no shortage of creative ideas that set the playful tone. I was astounded by the detail, and I especially loved the stripes painted on the ceiling. I’m sure it will absolutely thrill the children who are lucky enough to play in this room.”
Divisional Winner, London North & East Anglia
“I loved how the designer has made a room outside, complete with wall art, co-ordinating cushions and an up-cycled sofa.”
Divisional Winner, South
“This is really lovely styling. It is a great gallery wall that feels stylish and individual, and makes an amazing focal point in this room. The green velvet sofa with geometric cushions looks perfect below.”
Divisional Winner, North
“A campervan has been kitted out in 60’s vintage fabrics and crochet, and it is a riot of fun and colour. They’ve followed the rule that more is more, and in this case it’s really worked. This scheme is great fun.”
Divisional Winner, Midlands & South West
“This is a really high impact interior. I love the black on black for a really strong impact, and then clever eclectic styling makes a clear style statement in this hallway – and hallways are often overlooked.”
Best of luck!
