GIVEAWAY: Win Blogger Decorating Book, “Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben”!

Hello everyone! Are you ready to win a beautiful book during this special 3 day FLASH Giveaway? You only have between now and Thursday to enter to win this beautiful blogger book (only available in German)… So get hoppin’! Earlier this Autumn, my German publisher Callwey, published the first ever book written by a team of European design bloggers along with Petra Harms. I was asked to write the foreword and also write the section about storage and to shoot and include photos from my home for this project which I gladly did. The book, “Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben“, launched this past Fall and has been a real hit here in Germany. In the midst of moving, I’m trying to clear out extra books that I have so I’d like to giveaway 5 copies of this book (29.95€ value each) to 5 winners. I will sign and dedicate each copy, beneath my foreword, if you would like otherwise your copy will come shrink wrapped.

To enter:

1. Tweet “I’ve entered to win blogger decor book “Wohnideen Aus Dem Wahren Leben” on @decor8 from @callwey”

2. Then come back to this post and comment below with your email address, country, and twitter handle and of course, why you’d like a copy of this book. 

That’s it!

This contest is only open to those living in Europe and the UK since I don’t have time right now with my move and a baby on the way to fill out customs forms and ship overseas (sorry, guys). I will choose 5 winners at random on Thursday, December 12 at 5:00 pm GMT +1 time (I will close comments on this post at that time) and all books will ship on December 13, 14 and 16 (only on those dates – I cannot ship books after that so if you win, you need to send me your mailing address ASAP). This way, you can receive your copy in time for Christmas too!

GOOD LUCK!

    Hi Holly,

    I would love to win this book which is filled with bloggers I admire and which inspire me. And although I’m a blogger and love the digital world, a hard copy book always makes me happy because you can actually turn pages, mark them and even use the book as a decoration piece!

    Hi Holly, here’s my tweet. https://twitter.com/bungalowblogger/status/410819662998687745

    I would love this book because we used to holiday in Walldorf in Germany when I was wee and I think the houses we stayed in were a big influence on me then and now. Also, both my sons are doing German at school so they can practise their German and I can share time with them with the bonus of amazing images.. Win, win for me and my sons.

    Fingers crossed,
    Katie

    Hi Holly,

    first of all, I would like to thank you for this wonderful blog and wish you all the best with your baby! I only found out about your blog about 2 months ago but can’t stop reading… amazing!

    I’m from Germany and would love to win a copy of the book. I just bought an apartment and am already thrilled about decorating it even if I can only move in in about 1.5 years. Therefore, it would be great to get some inspiration!

    I tweeted @JuliaMl88682542 (https://mobile.twitter.com/JuliaMl88682542/status/410858004842815488?p=v)

    Thank you so much!

    Cheers from Frankfurt!

    I’m a mum of three (6,5 and 3 years old). My nomadic family and I moved several times during the last 7 years (Holland, England and now Germany). Since October my youngest son goes to kindergarten with his sisters, That means: for the first time in 6 years I have time for myself. Decorating makes me happy and it has been a balsam to my heart during the parental”full immersion” I got through. I’d love to get inspiration from this book and bring it to my crazy home.

    I would love to win your book, as a Xmas gift to myself, to help us with our decorating ideas for our new home. Thoroughly enjoyed your first book and would love a book showcasing various bloggers’ homes! Could be interesting to see how much German I remember from school too ;) Thanks, Silje, Norway (email above so I’m assuming thatis ok?)

    Hi Holly,

    thanks for the give away! Here’s my tweet https://twitter.com/ZeLittleOne/status/411082540598845440
    I’d love to win because we’ve bought a flat and I’m not sure where to start with the decoration, it’s exciting but must say I find it a bit daunting! Decor8 is one of my favourite source of inspiration and I actually love seeing your progress in your new flat on IG! Also, it would be great to read in German, I did German in college and as a matter of fact, lived quite close to Hannover, near Hameln, for a year when I worked as a language assistant. I had a brilliant time, and especially loved the few weeks coming up to Christmas!

    As I am expecting my first baby in January I’m actually spending a lot of time at home and soaking up all inspiration on interior design and decoration. So I am sure the book will be an amazing pastime and inspiration to upgrad my home until the baby is here.

    Best wishes, Sarah

I’m still not too happy with the look of our new house and since I’m on maternity leave right now and at home basically all day long, I’m constantly thinking about changing things. so I’m always looking for inspiration.

    I love interior design and over the past year have learned to sew, so my design aesthetic is a combination of purchased and DIY. I bought my first house 4 years ago, but am still decorating and would love the visual help!

    DANKE!
