Bloggers Competition: Win £1000 John Lewis Vouchers with Cunard

Oh wow bloggers. Have I got a great competition for you!

How would you like to win £1000 of John Lewis vouchers? Of course you would. And not only that, I have a 2nd prize of £500 and a third prize of £250. The blog, The Swelle Life and I are offering you this fabulous competition via Cunard, and their Mediterranean Cruises.

The mediterranean interiors look has to be one of my favourites. It’s timeless, elegant, and colourful, and inspires all kinds of romantic moods. You can bring it into your homes with ease, as well as your garden of course, and for this competition, we would love to see how you would do it.

All you need to do is hop over to the Cunard Mediterranean destinations page, pick your favourite and then create a Pinterest Board with images that remind you of this port of call. Of course, I would love it if they were home and interiors focused, but they don’t have to be. Just make sure they really give me a sense of that destination.

You might like to choose St Tropez in France, or Rhodes in Greece or how about Turkey, Tuscany or Italy. There’s a huge list to choose from, so you won’t be stuck for inspiration, that’s for sure.

Once you’ve created your board, create a blog post explaining your choices. Then come back to this post, and link it up in the comments below. Denise from the Swelle Life and I will be working together to choose a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place from all of the entries across both blogs. We’ll be looking for interesting, original and creative moodboards so do give it your best shot.

To get you started and give you some ideas, I’ve put together my own Pinterest board with some of my French Mediterranean inspired images:

Follow Jen Stanbrook’s board Cunard Mediterranean Competition on Pinterest.

Just to recap:

1. Take a look at the Cunard Mediterranean destinations page and choose your favourite port of call.

    I have really enjoyed putting together this Barcelona inspired mood board, and have used ideas from the architecture and artistic culture of the city.
    I hope it inspires you as much as it inspired me!
    A brilliant competition, thanks and good luck to all

    Having made the huge mistake earlier of chosing a Cunard destination that was NOT in the Mediterranean, I have pulled myself together and started a new board and post, this time on Portugal 🙂 Here is my post: and the Pinterest board is embedded within it. xx

    I loved this competition, it was so fun! My board is on Corfu and I chose Corfu because it has always been one of my dream destinations. I dream of staying in a classic Corfu villa with a large Mediterranean kitchen, a patio area for dining alfresco and of course, beautiful wooden beamed ceilings. This is my board here – – and my blog post here – Thank you for hosting such a fabulous competition!

    totally gutted i missed the bit about writing the blog post to explain my choices! I spent ages doing the pinterest board 🙁 Silly me for not reading it through properly as i just focussed on the 3 points at the end. Is it too late to explain my choices now?
