Help Us Design Our Dream Creative Space (+ Free Giveaway!)

This post is sponsored by Homestyler.

It’s no secret that we’re always looking for new and inventive ways to design the ultimate workspace. We’ve shown you inspiration from fellow makers and our favorite accessories for staying organized, but it’s pretty tough to know where to begin when you’re starting from scratch. Case in point, our brand new studio space!

That’s why when the folks at Autodesk® Homestyler® asked us to try using their clever interior design app to design our brand new studio, we were all ears. And guess what?  We’re enlisting your help to design a dream creative space. From work tables to create projects on to the ideal set up apartment for a photo shoot, we want your help in designing the coolest studio around.

Best of all, the three designs we like best will win a $50 gift card AND the Ultimate DIY Brit Kit. It will include our DIY Starter KitWashi Party Kit, as well as materials to make some of our most popular projects.

Enter the giveaway with 3 simple steps:

1. Download the free Homestyler app on your iPhone, iPadAndroid, or head to the web.

2. Use the app to turn our studio into the ultimate DIY workspace.

3. Share a link to your design via Facebook within the app and be sure to tag @Brit + Co. so we can check out your designs!

A little more about how it works once you click into our space to start building: Once you click the links above to get to our space, you’ll be able to click through the app to a fully-functional floor plan. This means you can pull in furniture ideas, paint colors, and the like, exactly as you would if you were decorating the space. How cool is that?

Now, back to what Homestyler is and how it all works. It’s free and available through your mobile device, on iOS and Android, or on the web. Browse a ton of beautiful pics for inspiration, learn about the latest home design trends, then watch your home design ideas come to life within a photograph of your own space.

Once you snap a picture of your space, load it into Homestyler. It can be a photo you take on the spot, or one from your camera roll. You can specify measurements if you like, and then it’s time to play. Try out new paint colors on your walls – we think turquoise is better for a color pop than an entire room ;) You can also play with the empty rooms section of the app if you’re looking for a more hypothetical dream space.

In terms of furniture, Homestyler’s got that too! Browse their extended library of brand name products to find desks, chairs, couches, rugs, paintings, and more. Even if the items aren’t the exact ones you want, this will help you block out the space you’re working with. Just browsing all the gorgeous couches, tables, and wall art makes us pumped to design our new space.

If you have no idea where to begin, it’s time to head the inspiration section of this clever little app. Here you can browse other peoples’ designs, check out Editor’s Picks, and the like. It’s like browsing Pinterest but more curated and specifically with interior design in mind.

And just last week, Homestyler launched applications for iPhone and Android, meaning you can totally design on-the-go. We’re in!

We can’t wait to see what designs you come up with! Be sure to send a note to hello@brit.co if you have any questions about this contest. For more official rules about contest and giveaways on Brit + Co, head hereHappy designing!
