Win a “Serenity Blue” Retro Mini DAB Radio

As you might have noticed I’m a bit of a fan of Serenity & Rose Quartz AKA the new Pantone Colour of the year.

Its just so pretty right? I promise I’ll write about something else soon πŸ˜‰

I’ve chattedΒ about it a couple of times now here and here… So when the lovely people at VQ got in touch saying they had the perfect Serenity Blue shade in one of their Retro Mini radios, I got a bit excited.serenity rose quartz in the home office

You may remember I ran a giveaway for a VQ Christie last year, well it was really popular with you, unsurprisingly as its a great product.

This time I’m offering you the chance to win this actual radio featured in the photos. It is the Retro Mini by VQ- this is the perfect shade of Serenity and is a really easy way to bring this colour into your home, tapping into what will be such a huge shade throughout 2016.vq radio dab giveaway serenity pantone

I’ve styled it here on my vintage Formica table at the back of my lounge (my small office space). Adding a few flashes of the Rose Quartz gives it the balance that Pantone talk about in their reasoning behind their choice, it really does instill a calm feeling when these colours are combined.

For more inspiration on how to use Rose Quartz & Serenity together in your home check out this Pinterest board.

I’ve mentioned before but its worth saying again, the reason I love VQ is because of the wide variety of colours and patterns the radios come in, but also they have an impressively high spec and are great value for money.

Some of the technical features I love are;

  • Bluetooth
  • USB port (which also charges your plugged in device)
  • Headphone socket
  • Aux in
  • Mains or battery powered (so you can take it on those Spring picnics)
  • DAB, DAB+ and FM for the more local stations

This giveaway is open to UK residents only this time, good luck!
