Birthday Giveaway: Your Chance to Win a DFS Sofa, the Stunning New ‘Topaz’!

Green velvet sofa DFS Did you know that #tidylife is five years old this month?

Little did I realise when I started my ‘hobby blog’ (then called Tidy Away Today) back in 2012, sharing storage ideas and upcycled furniture, I’d still be enjoying blogging just as much 5 years later, if not more so!  If you’re curious about my first ever blog post, you can read it here.

I honestly couldn’t have imagined it would be become my passion and that I’d still be busily typing away daily about home interiors, making friends with so many other bloggers and working on creative projects with lots of my favourite brands.

Talking of favourites, today I am absolutely thrilled to be launching a very special giveaway in conjunction with DFS.  I’ve collaborated with DFS since my early blogging days when they set me my first proper creative challenge in 2013, spending a day in a photography studio styling one of their French Connection sofas – you can find out more here.

Since then, I’ve visited the DFS factory and watched their chairs and sofas being made by hand – I even had a go myself on the gorgeous Britannia range, brought out especially for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games.  (DFS were official Team GB partners and kitted out their HQ in Rio with the lovely limited edition collection.)

More recently, I was lucky enough to visit the amazing Aardman studios and talk to the talented team behind those brilliantly animated #sofapeople adverts which I’m sure you’ve seen on the TV, featuring mini fabric people based on actual DFS employees.

So I’m delighted that DFS wanted to help me celebrate the blog’s 5th birthday and they have very kindly offered a fabulous, brand new sofa called ‘Topaz’ for one of you lucky people to win!  I KNOW!! How cool is that.

  3. Jane Allen
    May 8, 2017 / 6:23 pm

    I would probably go for the grey combination with light wood feet. It would go just nicely with my antique duck egg coloured walls.
