oh joy + dwellstudio {sleep in style} contest... 29 May 2009

I rarely have giveaways over here at Oh Joy! But this is a VERY special little contest with a prize from one of my favorite home decor companies of all time, DwellStudio. ONE lucky reader will win a full bedding set I've picked out: One Duvet Set (choose from Hedgerow in Saffron, top left, OR Chinoiserie, top right) + One Draper Stripe Sheet Set in Ash + One Paloma Saffron Pillow. A total value of almost $800!

We thought this would be a fun way to combine my love of home and fashion. So, to enter, choose your favorite DwellStudio pattern from their site (does not have to be a pattern shown here), then find a clothing item or accessory online (ie. a dress, bag, jewelry, shoes, etc..) that complements your chosen pattern. Leave a comment with the 1) the name of your chosen Dwell pattern, 2) a link to your matching fashion item, and 3) your name and email address*. Our favorite combo will be the winner of this amazing prize shown above! Entries are due by 12pm EST next Friday, June 5th and the winner will be announced the following week. Good luck and have fun!

*please be sure to type your name and email in the body of the comment not just in the field forms...thanks! **you can also choose to type in your email address as: name[at]email[dot]com. ***sorry, limited to US residents only!

{UPDATE: Please do not post more than once. Entries only appear below 50 at a time, so you may not see your entry, but we do receive every one..so no worries!}
