Over the weekend, we hit 300,000 followers on Instagram! I remember, in fall of 2015, hitting 10,000 followers. We celebrated that — and every milestone since. But 300,000 is a number that’s nearly unfathomable to us, and we couldn’t be more excited or more grateful to be doing what we’re doing and to be taking so many of you along for the ride. In gratitude and glee (!!!), we’re giving away an entire room makeover, and we’re calling it the #cljtreatment.
What’s the CLJ Treatment? Well, first of all, we’ll be redesigning an entire room in the winner’s home. We’ll work to incorporate your tastes while giving your space the CLJ vibe! This will include a video chat, getting to know your space, and a custom mood board with all of our product recommendations and ideas.
Secondly, we have access to some pretty amazing sponsors and brand partners who want to be involved in our projects — always. We get that this isn’t “normal,” but a part of our job! For this giveaway, we’re sharing our favorite partners and products with you. This giveaway includes more than $10,000 in sponsored furniture, decor and everything to complete your room to blog/Instagram-worthy status, including:
Art from Artfully Walls — $1,000
Housewares from McGee & Co — $1,500
Lighting from Rejuvenation — $1,000
Window Treatments from Blinds.com — $1,000
Rug from Loloi
Furnishings from Interior Define — $2,000
Paint and tools from Lowe’s — $200
1. Post a room photo(s) in your Instagram feed, tagging @chrislovesjulia and hashtagging #CLJtreatment.
2. Create an Instagram story, telling us why your room needs the #CLJtreatment, and add that story to your Highlights so we can find it easily.
3. Follow all of the partners in the giveaway. This isn’t officially a requirement, but your Instagram feed will overflow with inspiration. These are some of our *favorite* partners, and following them will only benefit you!
The winner will be chosen based on:
The Potential of the Room – We’re looking for a space that could really use the CLJ treatment! The room needn’t be dilapidated or have survived a natural disaster — empty walls or funky carpet or mismatched furniture or a space with no clear direction all scream with potential. This is a celebration, so let’s keep it light and fun :)
Quality/Creativity – Your room should be well-photographed, well-lit. We’re looking for a room that could use some love, so the space doesn’t have to look great, but the photo should be crisp and clear. We’d love to meet the family, friends, and/or pets with whom you share the space! Maybe you want to do something cute like hold a sign that says, “#CLJTreatment, please!” on it :) Be creative, have fun, focus on quality!
Likes – The winner MUST live in the US (sorry!) but we’ll be calling on the help of ALL our 300K+ followers to help us choose the room with the most potential and the entry with the most creativity. They’ll vote with their “likes,” so make sure to hashtag #CLJtreatment and spread the love by voting for your favorite entries on that hashtag, too. (Chris and I will choose the winner among the top five most-liked posts.)
Don’t submit a kitchen or a bathroom. We love designing these rooms, and we have awesome appliance partners, but this contest is specifically for a living room, dining room, bedroom, office, or family room.
Don’t submit a sneaky double room or great room entry! No dining room/living room combos! (Unless you live in a small space where one room is so many things. We’re talking to you, trendy apartment dwellers.)
Don’t submit more than one room. No double entries, please!
Note: Your account cannot be private for this contest.
We’ll be choosing the winner Wednesday, August 28th! So make sure you get your entries posted so there’s plenty of time to gather likes!
