Glug X ibis Styles Mood Board Competition

Win £1000, plus £500 in ibis Styles hotel stays.

Whattsup Gluggers! We’ve partnered with ibis Styles hotels for a competition which sets one of you up to go home with £1000 cash, plus £500 worth of ibis Styles hotel stays. Not bad right?

We want you to unleash your imagination and create a brand new design concept for an ibis Styles hotel. Remember each ibis Styles hotel has it’s own bespoke and immersive theme, so your canvas is completely blank.

Create a theme that is based on anything that inspires, intrigues or interests you. We want you to curate a conceptual look and feel, which tells a strong story and can be implemented across an entire hotel, exploring colour, materials, fabrics, along with key objects and furniture. ibis Styles champion creative and playful design, so don’t hold back!

To enter the competition, please create an A3 landscape mood board showing how you’d bring your chosen theme to life throughout the hotel’s interior design. Tailor it to your tastes, throw down some colour and experiment with textures and materials. We can’t wait to see what you come up with!
