  1. What a great giveaway!
    My favorite dwell pattern of the moment is a Kids pattern that I wish came in Queen size: Geometry in Primrose. I would pair it with this denim shirt dress from Anthropologie: and these espadrilles:
    I like how the texture of the lightweight denim would offset the striped shapes in the pattern, and although not normally a fan of espadrilles I think they totally complete the look & compliment the brown in the pattern.

  6. i think i would fall over with excitement if i won this…my bedroom needs a makeover like you would NOT believe!
    i absolutely love dwell’s “maze” pattern – it reminds me of a garden in a european castle, full of stone walls and topiaries. this beautiful dress has the same effect – the bright green color and the flowers, plus the sweet silhouette that makes it just the thing for a summer garden outing.

  15. Hi…I love contests and I love your blog, Joy!
    1. The Draper Stripe sheets in ash are fantastic! Bedding in this pattern guarantees sleep, right?! (However, I am slightly obsessed with stripes and I just painted my hallway in a lighter version of these sheets)
    2. There are so many great accessories, but this little bright clutch screams spring.
    3. kfritz1(at)
    I am hoping and wishing. Thanks!

  16. The bedroom is the one room in the house my husband and I have yet to decorate. The thought of owning the hedgerow duvet & draper sheet set has me daydreaming about countless decorating possibilities. Thank you for the inspiration.
    My choice would be to pair:
    1) Talon Charcoal pattern with
    2) “The Kiss” by Brancusi, pendant from the Philadelphia Art Museum
    I quite like how the mirrored pattern of the swirls of the Talon pattern come together. Almost like a kiss.
    3) Marcy, [email protected]

  17. The bedroom is the last room in our house my husband and I have left to decorate. The thought of owning the Hedgerow duvet and Draper sheet set has me daydreaming up all sorts of decorating possibilities. Thank you for the inspiration!
    For my pairing:
    1) Talon in ink
    2) Brancusi “The Kiss” pendant from the Philadelphia Art Museum
    The swirls coming together in Dwell Studio’s Talon patter are very soft and sweet, reminiscent of a kiss.
    3) Marcy, marcyltaylor[at]hotmail[dot]com

  18. Thank you for such a great contest!
    My favorite Dwell pattern “Dragonfly Petal” happens to be in the “Baby Bedding” section. I love the vintage-y feel of the yellow flowers thrown into a pink and brown pattern.
    Recently I’ve been in love with the flower-on-a-headband hair accessory look; but this Bambako [ ]** headband hair accessory might just be even cuter! Plus the whimsy of the feather headband complements the playfulness of the Dragonfly Petal pattarn.
    **Look for the yellow feather headband on bottom left corner of picture-collage.

  19. my comment never appeared…
    {1} dwell pattern — ‘thicket’ in saffron
    {2} complementary item — smocked dress from free people
    {3} i am audrey chamberlain
    thanks so much for the opportunity, it was really fun to search for items, and hard to decide.

  20. Yay I dream about this bedding but my partner will not help my funds for it.
    1. Dwell pattern – Chinoiserie
    2. accessory – Not sure if I can use this it is an item I found in a charity shop (I noticed avaryone is doing current designers)
    If it is not right as its not able to buy then here is Alex Monroe’s bird ring
    3. [email protected]
    Thanks for the opportunity!

  21. what a fun contest 🙂
    1. Dwell Pattern: chinoiserie
    2. The blouse in this photo: (I think the coral color in this blouse picks up the orange bird in the chinoiserie pattern. The blouse’s sprig pattern complement’s the birds and branches in the chinoiserie pattern, too.)
    3. contact: josephine, josephinesleung[at]

  22. 1* Dwell Pattern: Chinoiserie
    I adore the spring feel and beautiful birdies in this pattern and I think that the
    2* Walk Aways Dress
    with its flowy orange silky skirt picks up the orange on the sheets.
    — > BTW click the pic dress on model to get the full effect 🙂 Love these sheets!

  23. {1} Thicket Print
    {2} MLH Selena Floral Sequin Dress in Steel
    {3} Vanessa || vkhuong[at]gmail[dot]com
    I can’t believe this is a giveaway. Thank you! I’m feeling entirely inspired by the Dwell patterns and think the dress would be gorgeous with the Thicket print, while still honoring the pattern.
    Also, I just bought the Owl’s Evening Ring,-saleDate&navCount=6&navAction=poppush&fromCategoryPage=true&selectedProductSize=&selectedProductSize1=&color=020&colorName=BROWN from Anthropologie. It is perfect with the Draper Stripe Sheets in ash. I would wear my ring to bed! I apologize for the long entry, but I can’t stop staring at these prints. What a great start to my day!

  24. I thought i posted, but it didn’t show up, so here it is again?

    Both the dwell pattern and the dress are simple yet detailed, vintage & classic in design yet also modern, and both photographed perfectly.

  26. I’d love to see Dwell’s pattern “Linear”
    With this dress from Anthropologie (specifically replacing the bottom half!)

  28. My favorite Dwell pattern would have to be the Draper Stripe in Ash. It melds feminine with masculine. It’s something I could see my boyfriend digging while remaining something stylish I could love. I adore the parisian feel it has as well. It would look particularly lovely with my old brass bed frame. . .
    Since the style is such a balance of masculine and feminine I went completely feminine with my style choice by one of my favorite designers Sara Seven. I chose her Robins Egg Dress: . Light, airy, gorgeous. Can’t you just see yourself sitting on the edge of your bed which is covered with Dwell’s Draper style, wearing this ultra gorgeous dress, slipping on your heels for a night with the girls? Oh swoon!

    Really fantastic contest! It will be a challenge – but fun! – to look at all the entries. Thanks!

  32. I’ve been admiring the Hedgerow in Saffron for awhile now…it’s so elegant!
    And since owning that set would be a dream come true, I’ll go all out and wear my dream dress too! (I never did get to go to prom!) Scroll down to the second row and look at dress style #4 – red and gold tulle and taffeta.

  33. If I was picking out a nursery scheme I would get these crib sheets and this robe so I could nurse in style. I love how the flowers on the sheets are similar to the tiny flowers on the robe.

  39. ooh, three things i love coming together: your blog, dwell studio designs, and chicago-based designer, elise bergman. couldn’t decide for a long time…the previous season from dwell very much complements the past seasons of elise bergman’s clothing. but in the end, i was most inspired by the newest collections of both.

  48. Terrific contest idea. I’m having my first baby this fall and am fairly obsessed with using dove grey, grass green and yellow in the nursery, so I love your picks above. I also like:

    3. I’m Lily at lilyderrick[at]

  49. This was pretty tough to pick just one thing…
    The best match I saw was the Dwell Talon pattern with this Anthropologie zigzag dress:
    I can so easily see that pattern being used somewhere else in the room.
    My other pick: Dwell’s Thicket with this dress: – I love the punch of yellow with the butterflies on the duvet.
    Or Dwell’s Geo in pink with these earrings: – I can see these hanging on a mobile in a kid’s room.

    That bed set feels so homey to me. It’s like a modern interpretation on some of my grandma’s bed sets.
    All you need is a simple plaid shirt, that bed set and Bon Iver on 12″ vinyl. The mood has been set my friend.

  51. How fun! Bold swirly gorgeous black-and-white graphic prints.
