Whether you’ve been trying your hand at baking banana bread, exploring your local neighbourhood or simply enjoying a good brew as you gaze out of your window, many of us have been taking advantage of spending more time at home over recent weeks.
With life seemingly less busy right now, it’s the perfect time to take a step back and appreciate the little things a bit more.
People across the UK have taken to Instagram to share some of their picturesque backdrops, with hashtags such as #viewfrommywindow seeing over 345,000 uses on Instagram, #windowview seeing over 887,000 uses and #viewfromhome seeing over 76,000.
To celebrate Britain’s fantastic lockdown landscapes, we’ve launched a competition to find the UK’s most beautiful view. Whether it’s a breathtaking shot of the countryside on a sunny afternoon or an impressive cityscape at dusk, we want to see your lockdown views.
We’ll be giving away a voucher worth £150 to the lucky winner, which can be spent on/towards one of our blinds to make your window really stand out. To be in with a chance of winning all you have to do is submit a photo of the view from your window below, along with a caption to describe the view and your location in the UK.
The competition starts on 2nd June 12pm and ends on 23rd June at 12pm and we’ll be announcing the winner within 14 days of the closing date.
