So you think you can blog? Then you should definitely read this! Together with vtwonen, Flair and my fellow interior design bloggers from Blogtoday, we are looking for the Villa ArenA Blogger of 2014. The winner will receive a 1,000 euro cheque, a commercial assignment and – best of all – become part of our Blogtoday network of influencers. Pretty exciting stuff if you ask me!
Villa ArenA – your one-stop interior design shopping destination
Now, before I tell you more about the competition, let me introduce to you Villa ArenA, the Netherlands’ biggest and most beautiful interior design shopping center. Designed by Benthem Crouwel Architects, Villa ArenA is located very conveniently right next to the Amsterdam ArenA stadium and houses over fifty leading interior design stores and six restaurants and cafés. Enough to spend an entire day – especially if you combine your visit with a movie at next door’s Pathé cineplex or a concert at the Ziggo Dome. Villa ArenA is your one-stop shopping destination if you’re looking for the latest in interior design and home accessories.

We will kick off the competition on Saturday April 5th at 10AM at Villa ArenA with a cool line up of speakers that includes April & May, Vosgesparis, Kirsten Jassies of Blogtoday and myself. Believe me, you do not want to miss all the stuff we have to tell you. Each contestant gets an assignment to complete at Villa ArenA. Can’t tell you what it is just yet, but competition *will* be fierce as only ten contestants will make it to the second round.
