Oh Hi, with season 3 of Revamp Restyle Reveal in full swing, I’ve had a few people message me asking what it’s all about, so I thought I would write a quick blog of how it all works, who’s who and how you can get involved yourself.
Hostesses Lisa Dawson & Bianca Hall (centre of the group picture) are legendary interior stylists (not just my view I am sure) who have proven time and time again that their sense of style is highly regarded. Lisa and Bianca were already big on social media but felt there was something more that could be done to promote other interior stylists and take things up a notch or two in the process.
In 2017 Lisa and Bianca launched the first season of RRR, the idea being to get other bloggers to choose a room and to give it a real makeover within 4 weeks and to record the progress and to have a big reveal. The idea was to get people involved and not to treat it like a competition, it is art after all and difficult to judge one contemporary bathroom against a vintage bedroom.
Needless to say RRR was an instant social media success, this season will be no different. Lisa and Banca along with the 8 talented & unique bloggers Who have applied through an online application process.
Lisa and Bianca also work tirelessly to bring on board an amazing group of sponsors with which to collaborate - more about these fantastic companies later.
Season 3 has got some amazing bloggers this time around, some familiar faces from last season and myself too. The bloggers all come from different walks of life, have had different experiences, are at different stages of their career and have different design ideas and styles, so there is bound to be something for everyone to follow and get excited about.
Although we are all different and most of us have never even met, what brings us together is our passion for interiors,our drive to succeed and our love of social media to spread the word of interiors.
All ten bloggers have just 4 weeks to create a complete room makeover (well that shouldn’t be to hard, right??) We will all be posting and putting up stories with daily updates, so you can track our progress, trials and tribulations. At the end of each week we will all post our big weekly update onto the RRR YouTube channel and then on our own IGTV (Instagram TV channel). At the end of the four weeks we will have the big reveal, which will take place on the 2nd of April.
As I mentioned earlier Lisa and Bianca approach various companies that are leaders or innovators in their field to sponsor RRR. Each company has been hand picked and has something special to bring as follows:
West Elm (Headline Sponsor) - If you have ever visited one of their stores or gone online, then you will have already been blown away by the variety of home furnishings available. The range is cutting edge yet approachable with a hint of mid century modern about it. West Elm do not follow trends but help shape trends with their amazing insight.
Soak.com - A vast array of bathrooms, showers and radiators to inject some personality into your bathroom or around the house.
Style Library - Huge range of fabric, wallpapers and paint from the leading names such as Sanderson and Zoffany.
Flokk - A highly innovative company that really thinks out of the box when designing furniture for commercial spaces and also the home.
Dobbie Garden Centre - A national garden centre that recognises the importance of bringing the outside in.
Sonos - A company that has always been at the forefront of music streaming and has changed our perceptions of how we access and consume music.
Ca’Pietra - A huge array of tiles for wall and floor in porcelain and natural stone, along with some very special products like marble wash basins.
David Hunt Lighting - Made in the cotswolds to an exceptional standard, the range is vast covering many styles and there really is something for everyone.
The Blind Shop - Creators of fine quality made to measure blinds in all styles using the best materials available.
AO - A disruptor. AO has turned the industry on its head, with better than competitive pricing, next day deliveries and offering appliances large and small from all of the leading manufacturers.
With the help of these amazing sponsors, the 10 bloggers can create their dream room revamps! If we are being totally honest with ourselves, without them, it would just be a bunch of bloggers moving their furniture around for 4 weeks!!
The Media Partner.
Revamp Restyle Reveal is a social media event that is broadcasted on nearly all social platforms such as Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and Facebook. This season Lisa and Bianca have gone one step further and have Real Homes Magazine on board as our media partner - how exciting is that! Over the four weeks Real Homes will be following all the bloggers on their website, and then in their Magazine at a later date.
