What’s your favorite room in your apartment? Chances are you put a lot of work into making just right. Why not show it off?

This year’s social media contest at AMLI could reward you handsomely for your efforts. Share a photo of your favorite space in your apartment on Instagram from Tuesday, Oct. 1 to Friday, Oct. 18 for a chance to win up to $1,000 in gift cards. Be sure to use #amlihome in the caption and describe a little about your space. What furniture and decor really bring your room together? Where did you get them? What inspired your room? Share the wealth with fellow AMLI residents and tag where you got your best finds.

Finalists will be re-posted to the @amliapts Instagram account up to three times per day for each day of the contest. If your photo has been re-posted, that means you’re a finalist! You can enter as many times as you’d like, but can only be selected as a finalist once.

Here’s how to enter:

  • Share your photo on Instagram
  • Use #amlihome in the caption
  • Add your AMLI community as the location
  • Describe your design inspiration, share style tips and tag where you got your favorite pieces
  • We read the captions! Be sure to follow the above steps!

Follow @amliapts to find out if you’re a finalist and keep track of the competition!

You must be a current AMLI resident to enter. Be sure to indicate which AMLI community your photo is of or we won’t be able to add you as a finalist. All photos are accepted so long as they are your own work. Only those selected as finalists are eligible to win. One grand prize winner will receive up to $1,000 in gift cards and nine regional winners will each receive $100 in gift cards. Winners will be announced by Friday, Oct. 25 and be contacted via Instagram to coordinate the prizes over email. Read the official rules by clicking here.

Good luck!

Our #amlihome contest goes live tomorrow! AMLI residents can win up to $1,000! To enter, use #amlihome, location tag your community and explain a little about your space. To kick things off, we thought we’d share a few of our own AMLI homes. Here’s what Nick, an AMLI employee in Seattle, had to say about his space: “The first thing I found for my apartment at AMLI Mark24 was the cow hide rug. Then came the plants 🌱🌵. Lots of plants from my favorite shop @indoorsun in Fremont. I threw them on @ikeausa EKBY shelves I hung just by eyeballing. The waterfall glass coffee table I got from @wayfair. I was a little unsure at first, but love how it turned out! All the little knickknacks are antique and thrift store finds. Don’t underestimate @goodwillintl! The TV is actually my first ever. I bought it last year. Most of my time is spent in books. They’re all over my apartment!” 🏡 #amlihome
