Help Me Create a Colourful Home and WIN an Olympus PEN Camera

Ok guys, I’m looking for your help.

I’ve collaborated with a new and exciting platform, and I’m asking you to share your photos with me, of anything colourful within your home. I want us to pool all of our images together to create one, amazingly inspiring photo bank to help anyone looking for home interiors ideas. I want us to build a great resource of stunning images showing off our homes, so others can see them and be inspired.

Plus the really exciting thing is, if a blogger or other website uses your amazing image, you’ll be able to see who used it and where.

It’s a really easy process and I’ll explain a little more about this in a moment, but first let me introduce you to Million Eyez.

Million Eyez is a visual social engagement platform where you can create and  then use photo collections according to your needs. The idea is to create a Photobox (the collection of photos) around a certain theme, and then upload a few of your images to kick it off. Other Million Eyez community users will also add their own photos to the box to create something magical and inspiring.

As bloggers, you can then take the Photobox code and embed it into your blog post. Or you can take the code for a single photograph and use that in your blog post too. We all know how tricky it can be to find the perfect image to support our words and that’s where Million Eyez comes in. Images from the website are free to use.

Here’s an example image from my own Photobox:

So would you like to share your images with me in our own collaborative photobox? It can be a shot of a whole room, just a little corner, or just one tiny aspect of your home that’s colourful, bright and bold. Anything is suitable, just make sure it’s a good quality photograph, nothing blurry or out of focus. I can’t wait to see what you have to share!

Now, it’s really simple to do, just follow these instructions:

  1. Go HERE to the Million Eyez platform and my Colourful Home Photobox.
  2. Click the button in the right hand corner to add a photo
  3. Upload your photo and save to the Photobox. That’s it.

I can’t wait to see what images you have to share, and it’s going to give me a fabulous opportunity to have a look around your homes too.

The Photobox is shown here on the blog for everyone to see, so it’s a great chance to get eyes on your home interiors, your ideas, your inspirations and your design flare.

Want to share your colourful home with me? Let’s do it! #ThroughMyEyez

    Sounds interesting and such pretty pictures. My only question is do bloggers get paid for their images being used?

      No it’s not that kind of site Geraldine, much more like Flickr or Unsplash 🙂 More about community.

    Loving the colours in this photobox. I’m always scared to use too much colour in the home, I’m frightened of it feeling too busy and crowded. But your images and some of the others added have inspired me 🙂
