Becoming a Brand Rep

* This is a collaborative post *

Back in January I was beyond delighted to be chosen as a Brand Rep for the amazing homefullofdreams.co.uk, after entering their search over on Instagram. I very nearly didn't enter as so many wonderful, inspiring accounts entered and I didn't think I was in with a chance at all, so it came as a total shock to have been chosen.

Since then I've been sent some wonderful items from the lovely Stef, who owns the company, so I thought I'd share my experience of being a Brand Rep, and how I've styled some of the beautiful pieces I've received within my home.


February
The first item I was sent was this beautiful handmade print, which I was able to customise. I went for the phrase '...and they lived happily ever after', as this will be the centre piece of the new gallery wall which I'm currently constructing on our stairs (update to come soon!). I chose gold foil for the letters, and it really stands out against the black frame I chose.



The great thing about this print is it can be customised should you have a particular phrase that means something to you, and comes in a variety of lovely colours - including a beautiful pink foil.

Secondly, I was offered a set of their Vintage LED Marquee Letters, which I chose in an 'M' and 'S', to stand for mine and my husbands initials. They arrived less than 48 hours later (amazing service!) and we were astounded as to how beautiful they were in real life. Standing at a huge 41cm tall, each letter is made from wood and metal, to give it a distressed 'shabby-chic' feel - so absolutely perfect for my home! I had initially intended them to be another feature on the gallery wall, however after seeing them in person, I was really torn as to where they should live. I must have tried them out in nearly every room now, and so far there doesn't seem to be a place where they don't look amazing! At the moment they are currently living on our bedside cabinets, as they seem to finish the room off perfectly - however seeing as I'm an eternal faffer, who knows where they could end up!



The great thing about these lights is they're very lightweight, so it's easy to switch them room to room, plus they can be attached to a wall, and are battery operated, meaning you don't have to worry about unsightly leads/plugs ruining their look!


As you can see, they're really pretty decorative items which add an element of fun to a room, whilst still being shabby-chic and vintage in style.

Next up was another print, again in the beautiful gold foil. It reads 'Be Happy. Be Bright. Be You', which I instantly felt would be perfect in the spare room (or my unofficial 'dressing room'!), where I get ready for work in the mornings, and definitely need a reminder to be bright and happy!


However, saying that it also looks great in a number of locations around the house:



















I'll be updating this page as my time as a Brand Rep goes on, sharing some of the other items I've received. However in the meantime, take a look at Home Full of Dreams' website or their page over over on Instagram to check out their wonderful pieces. They've also got some discount codes available at the moment (more details on their instagram)!



Thanks for reading,
