2017 has been such an amazing year! If we’re being honest, a massive part of that was because of you! Every single one of you who visited our website at least once, followed us on social media, entered our competitions, or just liked our posts – we wouldn’t be where we are today without you!
As 2017 draws to a close, we thought it would be fun to look back on the year that was and remember some of our favourite things that happened this year – all of which you helped us achieve.
*as of Dec. 19th 2017
This year we were truly amazed by the sheer number of you who showed us love on Facebook or Instagram (or both!). On Facebook we made 312 new posts throughout the year and gained 11,000 new followers. On Instagram we published 387 new posts and garnered 13,000 new followers! This took us to totals of 29.4K followers on Instagram and 36.1K on Facebook – that’s aaaall of you!
All year we loved receiving your support as you liked, commented, and shared our posts. You motivated us to post the best content we could, and we’ll continue to do just this as 2018 rolls on!
Top Posts of the Year
In 2017 you told us what you loved and you loved animals! On the blog this year, our most popular post was Four Amazing Pet Products to Spoil Your Furry & Feathered Friends.
And on social media you told us what you wanted to see and we listened! You guys ❤️d all our posts, with one post reaching 727 likes on Instagram!
As of December 19, we posted six pictures with dogs (you can find them all here), five pictures with cats (check them all out here), and one picture with a rabbit (here). 2017 was definitely the best year to be a furry friend – so far!
Don’t worry – #ZanuiStyleHacks isn’t over yet! We’ve still got a few more tricks and tips up our sleeves for 2018. But that doesn’t mean we can’t look back at our favourite hacks of 2017.
Bed of the year
Catherine from The Stables showed us how to create an Insta-worthy bed and tbh it changed our lives! This was our first style hack, and you never forget your first.
The great outdoors
Another of our favourite moments from #ZanuiStyleHacks 2017 was the amazing outdoor space Bonnie from Three Birds Renovations created at the Pearl Beach House. This is the home that Bonnie completely restyled from floor to ceiling. AND she did it all with products from Zanui! Every room in this house was amazing but it was the outdoors that really inspired us all. (You can see how much our fans loved the outdoors – almost half of our top posts of the year feature this amazing space!)
This year there were quite a few home style items we just couldn’t get enough of. You loved them, we loved them, and it’s easy to see why! Here are just some of the things we couldn’t get enough of.
Nope, not the kind you keep in the shed. We’re talking indoor storage/display ladders. These were literally everywhere this year. Catherine from The Stables even made one of these a focal point in her How To Style a Nook video for #ZanuiStyleHacks!
Macrame wall hangings
These make such a nice alternative to traditional wall art, and we were absolutely obsessed with them this year! We love the way they can soften up a cold, hard space (as seen above) or just make a place feel more relaxed.
We really loved bar carts this year, and the way @clementinemcveigh styled the Franklin Drinks Trolley from Cafe Lighting & Living has us dreaming of wine o’clock (probably more than we ought to be).
From casual hammocks to on-trend chairs, this year was all about suspended comfort!
What You Created
This year, we were really inspired by you and your fabulous interior styling skills. Thank you for tagging us in your posts! We loved seeing what you came up with using products you found on our website. We’ve listed some of our favourites below, but this list is by no means limited to just these!
With pendant lights
Who wasn’t hit with a serious case of kitchen envy when they saw what @the_edgeofstyle did with the Eris Pendant Lights?! This is what kitchen dreams are made of!
With a jute rug
We love love loved how @alwaysandforever_styling was able to work the Margaret Round Jute Rug from Linen House into her gorgeous nursery! This space is simply divine.
With a chunky wool rug
Yes, another rug! But this one was styled so beautifully we just couldn’t resist. @scarlettandcointeriorstyling used our Amalia Chunky Weave Wool Rug so well in this space, we fell in love the moment we saw it!
Here’s to 2018
Thank you everyone that commented, liked, tweeted, shared, or in any way interacted with us this year – we loved every minute of it. And we can’t wait to see what 2018 has in store for us all!
