Bloggers Desk Landscape Competition: Win £500 to spend at

This Competition is now closed.

Congratulations to Ruth from The Planned Adventure for her winning entry, and thank you to everyone who entered. The standard was very high, which made the final decision very difficult!


Bloggers, would you like to win £500 to spend on fabulous furniture and accessories from online furniture store Of course you would! I have teamed up with British Gas Business to run this great blogger competition where we want to find out more about your desk.


Firstly though, a little more information about Made, in case you haven’t come across them before. Furniture store offers amazing design and home style at great value prices. How do they do this? By cutting out the middle man.

No warehouses. No physical stores. No middlemen. We’re just a passionate team bringing a new way to buy furniture: cutting out the fuss so you can get beautifully made pieces at a price to suit you.

Some of my favourite Made products at the moment include the wonderful Fonteyn dressing table for £399:

And this bang on trend, Starkey Cluster Ceiling light for just £79:


And this beautiful Ritchie sofa, in Candy Pink which you could you buy outright with your winning voucher.


Do you like what you’ve seen so far?

If so, this is what you need to do to enter the competition:

Bloggers, show me your Desk Landscape!

I would like you to create a blog post, and show me your desk area. I want you to style it up in any way you like, that’s personal to you. Ideally, I would like to see a before and after picture, but if that’s not possible, just the current desk will be fine. This is a competition though, so you need to give it some thought, and make your desk stand out from the crowd. Give it some style, add some flowers, some pictures, some fake green grass! The choice is yours, but I’ll be judging the entries on style, creativity and originality.

If you don’t have a desk, that’s fine, you can showcase your workspace in any form. It might be the kitchen table, the breakfast bar or maybe even the spot on the sofa where you create your finest blog posts. It doesn’t matter where it is, just create a space that’s unique and write about it on your blog.

And don’t forget to add plenty of good sized images so I can really get a feel for your style and creativity.

So, to get the ball rolling, here’s my desk area, the before and the after, following a makeover last year –

Desk makeover

For me, it’s about the family picture, framed wallpaper and a nice comfy cushion! Oh and lots of interiors magazines of course.

When you’ve styled your desk, taken the photos and written your blog post, come back here and link up the URL in the comments below. And that’s it. Sit back and wait, crossing your fingers and your toes.


Closing date: 2nd May 2014 11.59pm

Winner Announced: 5th May 2014

The full Terms and Conditions can be found on the British Gas Business Blog.
