Real Australian Kid's Room Instagram competition - Round 3

Do you remember the Australian Kid's Room Instagram competition in June? It was so much fun seeing and sharing all your children's rooms, so I'm thrilled to announce that Round 3 starts.. now! We're getting festive this time around, and this round's co-judge is the lovely DIY specialist and furniture maker Natasha Dickins Little Red Industries who will be giving away an amazing tree shadow box. It's perfect for Christmas but the colours will work all-year around. Read more below and head over to Instagram to share your own interior design style. Closes 7th December 2015!

Australian Kids Rooms Instagram Competition


This round will be co-judged by the lovely Natasha Dickins from Little Red Industries. Over the next two weeks Natasha and I will pick our favourite children’s room with the #AustralianKidsRooms hashtag on Instagram to receive an amazing Tree Shadow Box, the first of it's kind and brand new to Little Red Industries. The shadow box can be hung or rested against a wall and retails for $340. The tree is a super-generous and show-stopping 1 metre tall x 64 cm wide. You could win the very first tree shadow box in Australia! (note: accessories not included).

How to Enter

Snap a shot of your own child's room (up to age 14), post to Instagram (public accounts only), and tag with #AustralianKidsRooms and #BondvilleBlog. Make sure you tag and follow me (@sbond) and the co-judge Natasha Dickins (@littleredindustries), so we can see your entries.

I will be showcasing lots of the entries on Instagram over the two week period and will be featuring the winning room on Bondville. We are looking for a space that's interesting but practical with plenty of heart and soul. Whether you love monochrome, pastels, florals, traditional styles, contemporary looks, trend-driven, quirky, boho, minimalist or classic, nurseries, toddler rooms, preschoolers, tweens, teens... we would love to see them all.


  • Original work only please - take a shot of your own child's room. 
  • The quality of the image is going to be really important; try to use natural light where possible. You might like to take a number of photos throughout the day to capture the room with its best light. Photos do not need to be taken with your mobile phone. We won't tell if you take an image with your digital camera and upload to IG. 
  • Tell us a story. Sometimes the sentiment behind a piece can bring a room alive. 
  • Keep it real. Styled shots are beautiful, but we will be looking for a room that is practical too (low-hanging pendant lights and garlands on cots don't mix well with babies and toddlers). 
  • Your child's room doesn't have to be 'perfect' and certainly doesn't need all the latest cool art/toys/bedding. We are looking for inspiring and interesting rooms with a bit of heart and soul. 
  • Wide-angle room captures will be judged. You are most welcome to submit any photo of your child's room - vignettes, bed-only, shelvies and other corners of your child's room are all welcome, but the wide-angle captures showing a good percentage of the room will be the images that are judged for the prize. 
  • Post in competition window. You are welcome to re-post a photo that you have already used, but please re-post only during the competition time frame. Good luck! Let me know if you have any questions,
